I was reading a fellow blogger, Culinary Woman, who has a series of posts about helpful tips on finding good places to eat while traveling: Finding a Meal, What is there To Eat?, and How Do You Like to Eat?.
I really enjoyed her list of tips and especially liked the post on “How Do You Like to Eat.” I was reading her posts while I was traveling and in the process of pre-writing “Road Trip 2011.” Her blog posts made me think about what my own tips would be. So, I am taking a stab at it and hope this helps you have happy gastronomy based travels.
Since most people have a list of sites (Urbanspoon, Yelp, Chowhound) that they already use, I am going to give one tip everyday (in no particular order) for narrowing down and selecting. I just hope I don’t fork it up.
Tip #1: Know the Value of Food Serendipity

There is something to be said for researching beforehand; but, you should also keep your food instincts out for the chance to be surprised by a happy accident. Going with the flow and allowing food adventures to find you may be the trick to finding a rare victual moment.
Or, it good be crap. Either way, you’ll have a great story to tell your friends.
