  • One of the great joys of travel is eating.

  • Each country in Europe has its own distinct cuisine.

  • Leave the tourist zones.

  • Find places filled with locals enjoying seasonal and regional specialties.

  • The variety of food is endless and, if you know how to choose a good place,

  • you don't need to spend a fortune.

  • A few basic rules for eating your way through Europe:

  • Go for the local specialities. You'll get better quality and price. Eat seasonally.

  • Don't miss truffles on your pasta in the fall or fresh berries in Norway in summer.

  • The location can make the meal.

  • Bosnia may not be famous for its food

  • but dining under the bridge in Mostar makes a life-long memory.

  • Most of all, eat fearlessly.

  • Try things you've never had

  • in places you've never been.

  • There are eateries to fit every budget.

  • And while I recommend an occasional gourmet splurge, especially in countries

  • famous for their high-end cuisine like France and Italy,

  • you'll save money and improve your experience with Europe's countless

  • budget options.

  • Some of the most affordable and enjoyable food in Europe can be found

  • not while seated at a table

  • but while standing in the street or the market.

  • Every country has its own

  • beloved street food.

  • It's fast, cheap

  • and delicious.

  • In Greece, try the corner souvlaki stand.

  • And in Istanbul on the Golden Horn,

  • grab a fish sandwich fresh from the guys who caught it at one of the venerable and

  • very tipsy fish boats.

  • For a step up and a seat, there are lots of casual bars and bistroshometown

  • hangouts where you can enjoy local cuisine in comfort without going broke.

  • One of the best examples of this is in Spain.

  • Every town tempts you with tapas bars.

  • where you belly up to the bar and just point at things you'd like to try.

  • In Denmark, I love the open face sandwiches

  • which manage to be both simple and elegant at the same time.

  • You can munch the best pizza ever

  • for the price of a fast-food hamburger in Naples, where pizza was invented.

  • The rustic simplicity of sausages and fondue

  • feels just perfect

  • high in the Swiss Alps.

  • And these days, pubs are more than just friends gathered for a beer.

  • They can come with tasty meals, too.

  • By the way, interiors in Europe, from restaurants to hotels to pubs, are now

  • essentially smoke-free.

  • Especially in France, consider the cuisine sightseeing for your palate.

  • And, when you know your budget options, eating at the corner cafe or bistro costs

  • only a little more than lunch at a fast food joint.

  • Most countries have a plate of the day; that's a "plats du jour" here.

  • A handwritten menu in the local language only with a small selection indicates a

  • good value.

  • And the house salad makes a quick and healthy meal.

  • In France, bread is free.

  • Just hold up your basket to ask.

  • In France, a free carafe of tap water is either on the table or will be quickly if

  • you ask.

  • When it comes to drinking, I go local.

  • In Bavaria

  • its a liter of lager.

  • Tuscany: a robust red wine.

  • Provence: a nice rosé.

  • Ireland: a hearty guinness. Spain: a rich rioja.

  • In Denmark:

  • a fiery aquavit.

  • And in Greece,

  • it's ouzo, with a sunset.

  • Adapt to the culture you're visiting.

  • Over here, dining's not rushed. Slow service is often good service.

  • In a nice restaurant, the table's yours for the entire evening.

  • To get the bill you need to ask for it.

  • As service is often included and waiters are generally paid a living wage,

  • tipping is less expected and often unnecessary.

  • This varies from country to country;

  • get advice from locals.

  • Picnics are fast and fun and give you a purpose in Europe's colorful markets

  • and shops.

  • When picnicking,

  • you can buy whatever looks good regardless of price.

  • Choose an atmospheric place to make your picnic memorable.

  • We've put together a cheap and healthy meal for two.

  • Delightful cheese, tiny quiche, strawberries,

  • grapes, wine,

  • a little something for dessert,

  • and a reasonable view.

  • Traditionally, on the continent, breakfast is small.

  • In France, locals just grab a croissant and coffee on the way to work. But these days, most

  • hotels are offering hearty breakfast buffets, complete with cheese, meat, yogurt

  • and fruit.

One of the great joys of travel is eating.
