I had a good friend ask me as how were they to find a good place to eat, if not through a guide when going on holiday. This is in response to what I wrote about food guides yesterday. My feeling is that if you are going on holiday and you want to enjoy and experience what the local culture and surroundings have to offer? Explore and make it an adventure, eat where the locals eat, go off the beaten track, and take a Walk on the Wild Side. I always have, and it has always been fun and educational. In most cases I have enjoyed exceptional cooking, decent portions, great and unpretentious service, ‘With a Smile !! at a fraction of the price.
