Ever thought of taking a vacation based on places you'd like to eat?

Like a trip to the northeast to get original buffalo wings from Anchor, and try some New Haven pizza?

Or a tour a famous BBQ places in the south?

What trips would you take, and what places would you hit?

Cuba for some delicious chicken, pork, black beans and rice, cabbage, Cristal, Pina Coladas, and Mojitos!

That place is the shit.

Lots of ideas:

1. Maine for the lobster and the ocean.
2. California wine country. If I ever win the lottery French Laundry here I come.
3. Italy and France for the food and wine. I have no doubt I could spend the rest of my life traveling to both Italy and France and never taste all the different regions and styles of food and wine.
4. Montreal; french food and the women.
5. Patagonia for the beef and the wilderness

Luckily, over the last couple of years, I've been lucky enough to travel quite extensively for work. Plus, with the healthy per diem, I've been able to eat at some really great local places all over the place. From the original Arthur Bryants in KC, MO to the Double Muskie Inn in Girdwood, AK. I've lived in the northeast for most of my life so I've been out and about to most of the hot shit places in NYC, Boston, and Providence. However, asking locals for the best place to eat in some out of the way town has backfired before ("Well, we got a Applebee's out by the Wal-mart, and the dog-track has a pretty good buffet") and some really shitty restuarants.

I haven't spent enough time in NC to appreciate NC BBQ, but I'm heading to Charlotte next month for a golf outing (any suggestions on the best BBQ places in or around Charlotte?).

my fam and I are trying to put together a trip to Sicily that is half food motivated. There are programs there that give farmers money to use thier property for tourists. i havent gotten a lot of info on it but basically it sounds like you chill and eat on farms of varying sorts and the gov subsidizes the operation.

http://www.dolcetours.com/ Food, wine, hiking or biking depending on which tour you choose. I've spent many enjoyable moments evaluating each one. Someday indeed.

Not quite a whole vacation based on food, but I am going to Zihuatanejo MX in November and will be going to a half day class on some local food preparations.

Take pic's and create a thread. I've heard alot about Luger's but never been. Pic's of hot waitress if applicable should also be included.
