Apart from your regular dishes at the local restaurant round the corner, there are some killer food items across the globe that you most probably have only heard rumors of but never tried. Do you have a strong stomach? These are the top 10 foods you should try in 2012.
10| Lamb Kebabs, Afghanistan
Though Afghanistan isn’t one place you’d like to spend your summer vacation at, the tender grilled meat is something you’d keep with you long after leaving the Afghan nation (alive of course). The slightly charred garlicky lamb is found in most street side eateries in Afghanistan where you might even find some casual gun-trotters for company.
9| Steak Tartare, Spain
Originally a French cuisine, the steak tartare is primarily minced raw beef mixed with capers, mustard, pepper, topped with a raw egg most of the times. The velvety texture and luxurious taste scores above the normal steak any given day.
8| Tabbouleh, Lebanon
Tabbouleh has become one of the most popular salads in the world. Traditionally made of bulgur,tomato, cucumber, and finely chopped parsley and mint, often including onion and garlic, seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice and salt.
7| Pho, Vietnam
This is perhaps the simplest food in the entire list. Pho is a local Vietnamese dish and is a noodle soup combined with slices of meat. The broth is incredibly tasty while the meat is lauded for its great quality.
6| Escargot, France
You just have to try some snails. While people all around the globe eat snails, it is the French that revel in these tasty mollusks. They are basically served as appetizers and cooked with garlic and parsley butter.
