When Food Tells You Where To Go
Travel and food are the two words that always perk us up. So, why not juxtapose them and find out where it leads us? Food trip is an experiential travel plan that takes you to deserted allies of bustling cities and beaten down home-kitchens tucked away in a lesser-known town. The flavour and the food make you go places you have never been.
The UK has a love-hate relationship with the sun and summer. Therefore, when the sun shines for two days in a row, it calls for a celebration. Let us state the obvious here, a beach holiday!
Now it is time to add some spice to it.
Every Londoner loves Sussex beaches as much as bread loves butter. 64 degree is a haunt for the young, old, business tycoons and free spirits. The locals love it thanks to small plates and a rotating menu. They serve food that is fresh. Next, you can try Smokey's. It has a decently priced menu. If you are a rib-fan, Smokey’s will give you a key to your private paradise.
Chamber Sands, Sussex
Webbe’s is a home to the town's most fabulous seafood brasserie. You can find it in the small, cosy town of Rye, a little drive from the beach. The Gallivant is another option you must consider. It has the most beautiful view of the sea with cottage-like rooms along the beach. The kitchen staff only use fresh produce from nearby farmer’s markets and the sea. All that make up the menu come from within a 10-mile radius.
Holkham Beach, Norfolk Coast, Norfolk
Morston Hall has a new chef! This restaurant is one to show up for “Michelin starred restaurants near me" guides when you are travelling along the coastline. It is a stone's throw away from the pristine beach. The food is imaginative, compelling enough to create an impression. You must try their three-course lunch on Sundays.
Once you are laying on the golden beach of the North Sands, South Sands or Mill Bay, you are bound to land up in Salcombe shortly. When you reach the small town, do not forget to check in to The Winking Prawn and the South Sands Hotel. Both these eateries offer a panoramic view of the sea. A late lunch is a special treat since you get to see the sun set and treat yourself to fresh seafood.
Who would not want to watch the sea kiss the skies while eating fresh caught oysters and shrimps? The Fish House is a fantastic addition to Newquay. It serves some of the best seafood within a 10-mile radius. You will be spending less than £15 per head for a fresh sea-inspired meal.
Cornwall is fast becoming the top food destination for foodies, critics, bloggers and food photographers. It is right behind Madrid and Puglia to culinary stardom. Cycling, fishing, camping and barbeque sure will keep you in shape when you go for these food-adventures.
