I'll be in Bogotá for a week soon. It's my first trip to South America, and I won't be able to travel around the country much (I'm in town for work). So I'd like to spend my week in Bogotá the best way possible..
I'll be staying around the Universidad de los Andes.
Any recommendations for memorable places to eat and drink would be very much appreciated.
I'm mostly interested in "authentic" local food, and I probably shouldn't be eating in very expensive restaurants.
To the extent that the security situation for visitors will allow, I'm definitely willing to go to less central/touristic areas if there's something there I shouldn't miss.
I don't speak any Spanish but will probably be accompanied by some people who do.
Also, if I were to take one day-trip out of town with a dinner at the end, where would people suggest I go?
Many thanks in advance!
My girlfriend and I will be in Venice this weekend, Friday until Tuesday.
She speaks a little bit of Italian and we don't mind leaving the beaten track but we don't have a lot of money to spend.
Does anyone have recommendations for simple and cheap lunch or dinner in Venice? We're open to any interesting places, just want to avoid overpriced restaurants, and we can't afford the good and expensive ones at the moment either I'm afraid.
Thank you very much for any suggestions!
Since I'm staying at a hotel downtown, I'd also be most grateful for any food and drink recommendations Downtown or in Chinatown etc. I like to walk, so anything on the peninsula that includes Downtown and Chinatown would be good!
What are people's favorites in Chinatown, even though the best restaurants are probably found elsewhere?
I'm visiting Vancouver for a week, this week.
I'd love to hear recommendations for great food here, particularly "ethnic" cafes and restaurants. I understand there are large Chinese and Indian populations in the city, and that the best Chinese food isn't found in Downtown Vancouver's Chinatown, but further out in the suburbs. Obscure and out-of-the-way is fine.
The new site design makes it impossible to sort search results by date or number of replies, so although I find many posts asking for Vancouver recommendations, it's hard to find the recent ones with informative replies...
Thanks for any suggestions!
I'm looking not so much for suggestions for places to eat in Berlin (I live there) but for a good source of food criticism for the city. I wish we had a local Robert Sietsema or Jonathan Gold but I haven't found one yet.
I read Zitty, both the weekly magazine and their extensive online database
Any suggestions for magazine or newspaper critics, or print or online guides to keep an eye on would be highly appreciated, thanks!
BTW, I'll post my personal Berlin favorites when I have a little more time to think about it.
