Food Fads Worth The Trip

By Expert Author: www.cheapfares.com

It is amazing at times how it can be easier to identify cheap travel deals, such as cheap airplane tickets, discount hotel rooms, cheap auto rentals, discount travel deals, and cheap vacation packages than it is to decide where to go on vacation.

Truly memorable food fads inspire people to wait in long lines, pay top prices, and sometimes resort to the black market for a chance to imbibe. The following are some of the hottest food fads worth traveling for, according to Smarter Travel:

• Cronut is a doughnut made with croissant dough and can be found at Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City. Patrons commonly wait in long lines to pay $5 per Cronut with a limit of two per person. Cronuts sell on Craigslist for around $30 apiece.

• Umami Burger comes topped with shiitake mushrooms, caramelized onions, roasted tomato, a parmesan crisp, and “Umami ketchup.” Unami started in Los Angeles and has since expanded into the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City. The restaurant chain also offers a burger topped with house made truffle cheese, another with four types of green chiles, and one smothered in blue cheese and port caramelized onions.

• Townie is a brownie tart that has exploded in popularity in London. The Townie combines a gooey dark chocolate brownie with a flaky tart crust.

• Crookie is part cookie and part croissant. It is made by packing crushed Oreos into croissant dough at Toronto’s Clafouti patisserie et Café. Reviewers have call the crookie “heavenly” observing “It was kind of like eating a chocolate croissant but a gajillion times better.”

• Frozen S’mores feature a vanilla ice cream center wrapped in a chocolate wafer covered in marshmallow, torched to order. It is the creation of New York City’s Dominique Ansel.

• Ramen Burgers are ramen noodles grilled to bun like perfection and then filled with extras such as fish cake and pork. Long a street favorite in Japan, the Saturday Smorgasburg market in Brooklyn pairs the crispy noodle bun concept with a beef patty, a soy based sauce, and lots of scallions.

• Japadog was introduced at the Vancouver Olympics and is a Japanese style frank that comes in many variations. Its cult status has grown by maintaining its commitment to quality dogs and bold Asian inspired flavor combinations. One dog consists of Kobe beef, grated daikon radish, bonito flakes, and plum sauce. Among some of the other offerings are a veggie sausage and a deep fried bun filled with ice cream to choose from. These dogs can be found in Vancouver today at three food carts, a trailer, and a shopfront. In 2012 Japadog opened its first location in New York City.

• Bantam Bagels are bite size fresh artisanal bagels that are filled instead of topped. The Bantams West Village shop in New York City offers lox, tomato and red onion cream cheese inside an everything bagel ball and a bacon cheddar cream cheese with maple syrup inside of a cheddar and egg bagel ball.

• Gourmet Popcorn can be found at artisanal popcorn shops across the country. This snack food is now coming with accoutrements ranging from dark chocolate to sriracha sauce. It is like Cracker Jacks on steroids and has started being served at weddings.

• Halo-Halo looks like a Technicolor ice cream sundae and comes with a combination of sweet preserved beans, coconut meat, yam, flan, jackfruit, plantain, ice, milk, and ice cream. It is native to the Philippines and can be found at select Filipino restaurants.
