Where to Find the Best Restaurants on Holidays

*this is a guest post

When you go on holiday you will want to indulge yourself and eat at the most popular restaurants in the city. If you’re new to a location it is hard to find the best meal. There are many helpful sites online, such as ShopClearly.com, that can point you in the right direction. The best tip to finding good food is to get out of your hotel and walk around to see what the locals are eating. You will then want to reference a book, or magazine, for the best local restaurants. If neither of these methods works, then you will want to use your smartphone to look up popular restaurants nearby.

There are many ways to find food when you’re on holiday, but none are simpler than walking around and talking with locals. Before you even leave your hotel, you should speak with the concierge for their recommendations. These people are often asked about popular places and they will suggest several options. When you are wandering around the city and see a large crowd gathering near a venue, then that place most likely has good food.

Don’t be afraid to spark up a conversation with someone about the restaurant, most people will give you friendly feedback and suggest other places you didn’t know about. As a general rule of thumb, if you are eating at a place that sells Korean food, and there are a lot of Korean people at the restaurant, then they most likely provide their customers with culturally authentic dishes.

The magazine market is inundated with cooking and restaurant material. When you walk down the magazine aisle of a grocery store, you will find over a dozen various food-related publications. It would be smart for you to flip through the pages of a few to find what’s popular in the community you are traveling to. There are countless travel books that will provide several recommendations for each type of food. Many writers spend their entire career traveling to new locations and trying everything the city has to offer. You can compare the reviews from the magazine with those from the locals, and make your decision from there.

If these options have failed you, the best way to find a restaurant will be to use your smartphone to look up what’s nearby. This is a fast way to compare multiple locations and find the food your taste buds desire. Many search engines will provide you with reviews from customers that describe their experience at the restaurant. These are helpful because you will find details that aren’t in book reviews, such as how the service was and specials that are currently offering. There are numerous apps on the market for restaurants, making it easier than ever to find food while on holiday. Don’t waste time looking for restaurants when you have all the answers at the tip of your fingers!

Hubby is always a little late in the game. Most people seem to have their holiday lights up outside the week of Thanksgiving. He just did it this week and it was worth the wait because it looks nice!

Crab Pot Tree

A new edition to our yard this year is the Crab Pot Tree. You’ll love their story –

During much of the year, Harvey and Sons in Davis, NC looks like a typical supplier to the commercial fishing industry, with stacks of brightly colored crab traps (locally termed “crab pots”) a major product. The variable nature of the fisheries, and a desire to keep the family business growing, as a legacy for his sons, prompted Nicky Harvey to look for other products.

Mr. Harvey’s roots go deep in the Down East culture, where “making do” and “doing with the materials at hand” are long traditions. His fertile mind played with ideas of what could be done with left-over materials, and he experimented with making miniature crab traps for coastal decor. Then he began experimenting with triangles of the coated wire mesh, and the Core Sound Christmas tree was born.
