The best resource for good "american food" while on the road that I know of is www.roadfood.com . The website focus on quality non-chain restaurants, often mom and pop places, with good and often unique menu selections. Check it out. Not only can they help you in Colorado, they're useful throughout the USA. Just about the best tip to give someone traveling in the USA.

I'll have to put that one in my iPad. Roadfood. Always looking for some good choices when I go touring the US. I always prefer somewhere that's been voted as excellent !

I took a look and it looks like just what I need. I can even use the info to plan our route. I had my mom look at it, too, and she said it reminds her of when she was a kid and my granddad had a book called Duncan Hines that had local places all over. I wonder if that's the same Duncan Hines as the cake mix?

The Varsity Drive-In in Atlanta is the tops. " What'll ya have! What'll ya have! ". Denver needs something like that.

To be honest, Varsity ain't what it was when I was in college...there's better places around. Some good stuff on Marietta St. near the convention center, and lots of good places in Decatur area (we're near there). That's the kind of stuff I'm looking for to make up our road trip.

When I bought this computer it had 16 Million colours. Who would use that many ? Well congratulations DrF !! I think you just did. An extravaganza of colour and diversity. Even the photos are fattening !! You've excelled yourself again DrF. You certainly have an eye for the finer things in life !!

Thank you for your kind words, Garry! Besides the good food and their freshness, I love markets for all their colors and smells, and for the hustle and bustle of the crowd. It's the stuff good travels are made of!

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, Oct 21, 2014: Maltese Bread

I also love a fresh loaf of bread. When it's just right, it's easy to make a meal of just bread and butter. I have great sympathy for those who can't eat gluten. I'm not sure I'd find life worth living without fresh baked goods.

Walking the narrow streets of Valletta - past the small shops that sell freshly cooked food and cakes. The smell of Coffee from the Cafes and Restaurants. And the smell of new leather. Brings back all the memories of wonderful Malta.

My wife sometimes believes that my main photo subjects are bread, fruit and veg, and birds perched on statues, so it's nice to know someone else appreciates how beautiful bread is, and how easy it is to smell it and taste just by looking at a great picture like this!

Maltese bread is something special. I'd certainly use it as an excuse, if you need one PHeymont, to visit Malta. Wonderful photo, IslandMan.

Re: Eating our way through Istanbul (Part 2)

PHeymont ·
Of course we tried the baklava...several places, several flavors and more... Which gives me a moment to mention something I forgot in the blog...chicken-breast pudding, or tavuk göğsü. On Wednesday, Katerina mentioned it, and joked that people make faces when they hear about it. Didn't sound so odd to me. On Friday, Senem brought one to the table so we could try it...and it basically was a protein-enriched blanc mange. The chicken is boiled and separated into fine fibers and mixed with milk,...

That was an amazing tour of gastronomic delights Paul. It takes some courage to indulge in something we don't recognise. But on a tour designed for tourists you know you'll be safe. So now you've acquired a taste for fish lets hope you continue indulging. You must have tried the Baklava ? Makes searching out a Turkish bakery worthwhile. And all that variety in winter too. My friends are in Turkey today and they're still waiting for spring to arrive !

Re: Airport trend: More local restaurants

I enjoy trying these local restaurants in airports, especially when there's time between flights. It's one of the best developments of the airlines no longer offering meals.

Nice to hear that American is doing something to improve the experience of its economy customers. Now if only they got rid of that annoying checked bag fee.

PortMoresby ·
Regarding "that annoying checked bag fee", the problem is not the fee, it's that you aren't going far enough. Fly internationally and don't pay a fee. Or is that not true between Canada & the US?

DrFumblefinger ·
Baggage fees apply for most airlines flying between Canada and the USA. The 'free bag' is for intercontinental flights, so far as I can tell.

American Airlines have been giving excellent service since their merger. I've only flown UK to US and back but their cabin staff have been courteous and charming. Must mention Bernie by name - what a wonderful charming man. Not so young, but he came back later into the flight to thank me for complimenting the crew. No charges for luggage - free drinks AND ice cream. I'm flying with them again in 10 days. Then Frontier to Miami. Am I in for a shock ?

Yes, Garry. I expect the last leg of your flight will be somewhat of a shock after your American pampering.

Most of my flights on American have been international, and the crews have been excellent (and you get snacks as well as meals.) On domestic flights, they've been just as nice, and usually my credit card has waived the baggage fee. That's never what I hear from people flying Frontier! By the way, one AA oddity: there's no free baggage on some international flights; Mexico City is international, but Cancun is domestic for baggage purposes. Caught me blinking on that one!

Re: A Day of Decadence in Paris

GarryRF ·
On my first visit to France I visited a small supermarket. I bought a selection of economically priced wines. They all tasted the same - cheap. I was advised by other tourists to look for the laundry basket instore. It contained re-cycled bottles with no label. Just the description on a card attached to the basket. And even cheaper than the junk I'd already bought. It's what you see the locals choosing. 1 red and 1 white basket full of scratched bottles with a new cork . Beautiful wine and...

Re: A Day of Decadence in Paris

Garry, your wine story reminded me of a family experience with French 'vin de table.' My father was stationed in Heidelberg in the late 1950s, and the British, French and U.S. forces gave each other reciprocal privileges in their stores. The main reason for our occasional trip to Baden-Baden, which was the French headquarters, was to refill jugs with inexpensive and quite pleasant French wine. It was, indeed, as cheap as milk! (Although I never thought of using it on cornflakes...). I note...

Re: New French law: surplus food to be donated, not dumped

DrFumblefinger ·
This is a great idea. I believe it is banned in most of North America. I know a restaurant owner who used to give his unused food to a shelter. The government forbid it and now it goes into the trash.

Years ago, I went to that market and the thing I remember about it was how packed the streets were.

Re: La Vucciria Market, Palermo

Can't help wondering at the similarity of the name, allowing for common letter/phoneme substitutes, to La Bouqueria Market in Barcelona. There's not a lot of agreement on where that name came from, by the way, but the best-sounding bet is that it comes from Catalan 'boc' for goat.
