Food is never just about the meal itself; it's part of the essence of a place and one of the things that defines a culture. I recently took a trip around the world, visiting 6 countries on 4 continents in 30 days. An aspect of the trip that stood out to me most, with being in varying cultures in such a close proximity time-wise, was the culinary variety and how people express themselves through food. I love knowing about local, insider places to eat when I travel-the inspiration for this list!

Not too long ago, I was in Texas for four days, and managed to eat beef fajitas from Lupe Tortillas seven times. And that is from a Texan-turned-New Yorker who is edging closer and closer to vegetarianism—they are just that good. I love Tex-Mex...
