These Renowned Foods Should Be Tried At Least Once in A Lifetime

The world is full of amazing flavors, and if you’re a foodie, you should make it a goal to try as many flavors of the world as possible in your life. With so many delicious foods out there, it’s hard to narrow down the list to only 10, so we’ve chosen 10 of the world’s best and healthier foods because some are too much to handle—deep fried and soaked in gravy and melted cheese—and certainly wouldn’t keep you on track for a healthy low-fat low-carb diet.

Check out the full list below, and be advised that even if these foods are delicious, they’re not all low-fat, low-carb!

Massaman Curry from Thailand

This curry dish could possibly be the best in the world, with its creamy coconut, spicy kick, and blend of sweet and savory flavors. This dish uses Massaman curry paste, meat, vegetables, coconut milk, fish sauce, and plenty of herbs and spices.

Chocolate from Mexico

High-quality chocolates of the world are worth trying and paying extra for. Look for dark chocolates with cacao (cocoa) butter in the ingredients, preferably organic, and with high percentages of cacao.

Sushi from Japan is a must-have on our list of delicious foods from around the world!

Sushi from Japan

Sushi is a much-loved food around the world, with sushi restaurants not very hard to find in many cities. The blend of seafood, vegetables, ginger, and wasabi play with each of the tastes on a palate, which would explain why so many people in the world love sushi.

Rendang from Indonesia

This popular Indonesian stew is slow cooked for hours, combining the savory flavors of beef, coconut milk, chilies, garlic, ginger, galangal, lemongrass, and turmeric. Like most stews, the flavors are even more delicious the next day.

Shish Kebabs from Iran

If you’ve never tried a shish kebab before, you must! This easy-to-make stick of seasoned meats and veggies makes for a healthy and simple BBQ meal. You can put whatever you want on them and eat pieces off the stick if you don’t want to dirty dishes.

Pho from Vietnam

This soothing soup is popular and easy-to-make—full of broth, fresh herbs, meat, and noodles. Pho is a must-try for any soup lover.

Fajitas from Mexico

Any dish from Mexico could probably make it on this list but fajitas might be the easiest and are extremely versatile. Cook up bell peppers, onions, garlic, and whatever else—chicken, beef, shrimp, or mushrooms. And whip up some homemade fajita seasoning to add its famous flavor.

Maple Syrup from Canada

Maple syrup is sought after around the world for its natural sweetness. There have even been maple syrup heists in Canada—burglars stealing Canada’s large reserve of maple syrup—since it is worth so much.

Texas BBQ Pork from the U.S.

This pork is seasoned and barbecued with a blend of herbs, spices, tomatoes, chili, and pepper to create a mouth-watering dish. If you want to try it without going all-out Texan, eat it with a side of veggies and salad.

Seafood Paella from Spain

Paella can be made with any seafood, rice, vegetables, herbs, spices, and added meats. It’s another favorite dish that can be made easily and for a large crowd.

With so many great foods in the world, make a point to try as many as you can to experience the tastes that various cultures have to offer.
