Follow your nose as you drift through these legendary food markets: mmm. But every market has its own, very special snack that the pleasure-hungry visitor should not miss.
Barcelona: Tantalizing Tapas
Homemakers, master chefs, tourists – you will see them all at the Catalonian capital’s Boqueria market. The place is always crowded, especially in front of Pinotxo, Juanito Bayen’s stall. The man with the signature bow tie is a local celebrity for tapas that are a veritable revelation.
Melbourne: jam doughnuts
A trip to Melbourne without a visit to Queen Victoria Market? Impossible. Once you’ve arrived at the seven-hectare market, you really should give in to the temptations of the legendary American Doughnut Kitchen. The jelly-filled ones are best.
Washington: Savor the Stacks
Off to the USA for the presidential election? To keep your nerve, head for Market Lunch in the Eastern Market on Capitol Hill, and order the divine buckwheat blueberry pancakes. In a time of tough choices, this is an easy one to make.
