Dining out can be everything from pure necessity to pure pleasure and a lot of fun. If you are on vacation and are staying at a hotel without any chance to create your own meals, you may not have a choice, but then it is important to do a little research, to make the experience a good one. But if there is no time or opportunity to research, it is always smart to ask the locals or the hotel staff where they prefer to eat. That usually results in a great experience, both in taste and price.
I love to dine out. Whether it is together with my children, with friends, or alone with my husband.

There are several different restaurants, and each great in its own time. A Sunday night after a rough Saturday, the only thing on my mind could be a juicy kebab, while if there is something special to celebrate, you may choose a more fancy dish and restaurant. You can eat French, Italian, Asian or Creole. Fish, meat, vegetarian, pizza or pasta. Raw, fried, baked, foamed or braised. With Cocoa Cola or Champagne, beer or sake. Expensive or cheap. So then… Just make your choice;)
These are some of my favorites. Some far, far away and others just around the corner.

Especially when going to the bigger cities, there are hundreds of restaurants to choose from. You may get lucky, and find a great spot. But if you do some research in advance, you will hopefully end up in a place where the locals eat, where the food will taste like heaven, and you don´t have to eat your meal in a room full of tourists.
