Part of the joy of travelling for The Jetset Boyz is getting to try new food and regional specialities. Of course, in Valencia, THE local specialty that you must try is paella (which, for those who don’t speak Spanish, is pronounced “pie-ay-ya”). The dish originates in the Valencia region and Valencians are very passionate about it. They are particularly vocal about what should be in it and how it should be cooked (especially if you are going to call it Paella Valenciana).
CNN has produced a comprehensive list of the world's best foods. I cannot argue with a list that places chocolate in the top three, and there are many national dishes, such as Peking Duck, Seafood Paella, Pho and so on.
Just looking at the list, and I've enjoyed 35 of the 50, seventeen of them in their native lands. Possibly a few more, if I were able to go back and check. I can't remember having poutine in Canada. That sounds like one to stick in the memory, one way or another!

Eat street food and dine in local restaurants. Eat Like a Local. If you’re not trying the food, you are far away from getting to know the culture.”
