Food you should definitely try when travelling

If there's one lesson that we can take away from watching Africa On A Plate it's the fact that the Kenyan proverb "He who has never travelled, thinks that his mother is the only good cook" is definitely onto something.  This list is for all those who love travelling and letting their taste buds explore the world along with them and if you can't travel, then at least let your taste buds do it for you by exposing yourself to international foods.
