Welcome to Foodies Day Out

You can read a million recipes and have the best cooks cook for you, but still you can never taste the ‘native’ taste of a cuisine unless you eat it where it originated. We at THE HUNGRY TRAVELLER offer you the chance to experience the local cuisine as the natives do. We take you to places where no guide book can lead you to. Come and enjoy the local ‘tastes’. Devour as much as you can. These tours are for those who love their food !
