Before I go on any trip, I like to plan where and what to eat during my travels. I can do ‘spontaneous’ now and then, but I generally prefer to know where I’m going to be eating! As the Olympics start in a few days, I thought I’d write up my notes on the Beijing restaurants and eateries that I hope to visit in October as part of a two week trip to Hong Kong, Macau and Beijing. Although it’s only the first draft of the list, it might be useful to visitors to Beijing during and after the Olympics. I’ve consulted friends and family out there, and read many online reviews…

Burmese restaurant Mandalay has been at the top of my restaurant wishlist for a while now. It’s always sounded intriguing to me. Not only are the owners Burmese-Norwegian, they also run a little hotel nearby. And I’ve never had Burmese food before. As Time Out included it in its Top 50 London Restaurants list earlier this year, I thought I’d go and investigate with a friend.

What do Chinese restaurants offer the discerning vegetarian? I’ve been giving this a lot of thought lately, because we’re going on a two week trip to Hong Kong, Macau and Beijing this October, and I’m going to have to do some serious research to find suitable eateries for vegetarian husband. I’ve been thinking about all the Chinese restaurants we’ve visited in London, and what dishes he particularly enjoys, so that I can find similar (or far better!) ones in China. Although I lived in Beijing for two years and have visited Hong Kong many times in the past, it’s been over a decade since my last trip, and I never had to worry about feeding a vegetarian!

Over the last twenty years, I’ve been fortunate enough to eat some incredible food around the world (I call this ‘traveleating‘). I just wish I had written about these experiences and taken photos. There are places that I won’t see again, restaurants that no longer exist, and special home-cooked meals that can’t be replicated. But the past is the past, and I look forward to visiting plenty of exciting destinations in the future, armed with my notebook and camera!
So, here are my top 20 foodie travel experiences, in no particular order than chronological…
