When we speak to our clients, the team at My Vacation Lady will ask whether they consider themselves to be foodies. Are they adventurous with food? Will they eat from food trucks and street food? Are they the gourmet restaurant types? Do they want lots of choices in restaurants and types of cuisine? This is all in an effort to match our clients with the best destinations for them.
Travel professionals world wide voted on the top Foodie Destinations and which cities offered the most choices in dining options, in terms of the most types of international cuisines.
- New York– where if you can dream up a cuisine, you can probably find it with over 90 different types of international cuisines. No surprise here (as a native New Yorker)

- Toronto– offers 73 national cuisines with the most popular food being Thai Pai.
- Chicago offers 66 national cuisines that lean lots of European and North American fare
- Paris– no surprise here. Foodies can sample 65 national cuisines including Haitian and Australian comfort food. But let’s not forget the French food- oh la la!

I don’t know about you but Rome is another fabulous foodie city but maybe it was too hard to narrow down any specific city in Italy.
