Food & Drink

Often times when traveling, it’s not always as simple as we would like to meet people or get the full experience of the culture. It’s easy to get caught up in tourist-centric venues, or perhaps the language barrier is cause for intimidation. Websites like EatWith are popping up and taking you into local’s homes for hand-made, authentic meals. Cookening is another popular site, and like EatWith, safety and security are a top priority when making plans and payment. Simply select your destination and a list of hosts will appear complete with name, age, location and what meal they are serving for how much. You will be able to read a brief bio of the host and then contact them to make arrangements and payments.

Other sites are catching up, such as Plate Culture, which gained recognition from CNN and Forbes, to name a few. It currently only has hosts in Malaysia, but will be serving most of Asia and all of Australia soon. In addition, TravelingSpoon currently offers well-vetted hosts from 35 countries throughout Asia. Bookalokal has more than 30 countries listed; however, most of the hosts are located in Belgium or the United States, and Feastly which is only U.S. based, focuses on interactions more so between locals instead of travelers.

These underground supper clubs are a great way to make the most of your next trip. Not only will you receive an authentic meal and learn how the locals live, you might just make a lifelong friend.
