We’d like to pretend that we’re civilized and regal in our food consumption etiquette, but, well, we’re not. At all. We’re more along the lines of Sofia’s mindset to the power of three, plus hand-eating, talking with our mouths full, and huge bites that are totally a choking hazard for a rhino. So, it ain’t the prettiest but it’s fun. We eat with our hands, on the floor, pick up fallen food, and laugh a lot. In our third year, country number twelve, we’ve had so much lip-smackin, cultural delicatessens, some really gross stuff, and many interested combinations from the mammal, amphibian, and insect groups. And in celebration of this glorious event we’re going to bring you a whole bunch of posts related to food, under a new category called RTW FOOD!

We’ve been invited to many really nice places and have eaten some wildly delicious meals that made our taste buds do the happy dance. These were the kind of meals that make you die-and-go-to-heaven for the first, and second, and third bite! (I have a third bite theory, but I’ll share that some other day.)  We wanted to highlight the best of the best meals we’ve had so that if you are ever in the neighborhood, you can enjoy these heavenly experiences too. And here it comes loves, are you ready? The Ten Absolute Best Meals In South East Asia- A RTW Photo Food Celebration!

OMG that was hard! I tried to pick the heavier kinds of meals that leave you unzipping your pants and sitting back like a good Italian and saying, “delizioso.” We have loved these and want to give a billion thanks for each of the mentioned establishments for having us for a their remarkable treats. We have loved every bite of it! Every bite!

Have you been to any of these fine places? Tell me what is the best meal you’ve had in Asia! We’ll do desserts soon, and we’ll be featuring a choir of travel bloggers next week sharing their ‘best food in the world.’ So, hold on, friends, more amazing food posts are coming your way. If you want to follow the trail of bread crumbs, just click “RTW Food” on your right and you’ll see them all. And now, I’m off to eat a green cabbage salad.

We’re determined to inspire others to lead the lives they are meant to. The Saving For A Dream e-book is your first step towards making that dream come true. It is also a kind, generous donation from you to help us continue our voyage.

So, buy it for yourself or a friend.

Thank you.
