People watching – everybody does it. We even stopped a few travelers at Hamburg Airport to ask: Where, on your travels, have you eaten the best food?

Ever since joining a food tour in Kyōto, I've been crazy about tempura - battered, deep-fried seafood and vegetables - a classic Japanese dish.

Last year, I ate the best steak of my life at a restaurant in Buenos Aires called Don Julio. It was served on its own, accompanied by wine.

A few years ago, I discovered a small restaurant in the middle of Amsterdam that served wonderful seafood dishes. I have to go back!

I remember a really good meal I once had in Rome at a restaurant overlooking the Tiber river. The food and the atmosphere were amazing.

I lived in Brazil as a child. The food shacks on Maresias Beach near São Sebastião are a great place to stop after surfing.

ANGELA SISCA, high-school graduate
I'm a big fan of Middle Eastern food. Whenever I'm in Berlin, I always go straight to one of my favorite places for falafel or humus.
