Australia: Meat Pie
Australians sure love their meat pies — they expend a great many pies every year, taking it in a hurry or appreciating it at a bistro. Eat it like local people do by fixing it with warm or chilled tomato sauce.
Apfelstrudel or Viennese apple strudel is a close cousin to classic American apple pie. Tart apple is paired with sweet pastry dough for a delicious combination. Austrians love eating it with their afternoon coffee.
Belgium: Moules Frites
Mussels and fries are as common in Belgium as burgers and fries are in the U.S. Try it the simple way by ordering plain, steamed mussels or with some extra flavor like curry powder.
Pudim looks exactly like flan, but the Brazilian version has a softer texture. You’ll find this dessert in every restaurant, cafe and home.
Gravy, fries and cheese curds — what’s not to love about poutine? Although this savory concoction is available in the U.S., you should try it while visiting Canada. Some restaurants have more than 100 variations to choose from, so there is something for everyone.
