will travel for food

a friend posted a question on facebook
"what is the farthest you've traveled just for food"
my initial response
"i'm embarrassed to say"
it became a competition
complete with 
 mocking and cajolery

another friend
in that manner that indicates more statement than question
"isn't all travel about food?"

i'm in that camp
for me
food is part of the sensory experience 
of travel

but i am curious
do you feel the same way?

to answer the question regarding how far i have traveled....specifically...for food
it is a toss up between

127 miles
in the dead of winter in alaska for halibut fish and chips
140 miles round trip
from a campground in mississippi to a rural gas station
for caramel cake 
(you can see that story here)

I ask YOU
what is the farthest you have traveled just for food?
i would love to read your response
in the comment section


  1. I'd make a 200 mile detour to go back to Nawlins for dem ribs we had at Cochan.

    1. i agree! maybe we should do that this summer!

  2. Hard to say just for food, but any trip back to Scotland (6000 odd miles) for me ALWAYS means a first stop at my buddies Chinese restaurant, suitcases in tow and no matter how much jet lag..then I'll visit the family :)

  3. i love it! that must be some darn fine food. thanks for playing along.

  4. Just for food? Probably here to London, which is about two hours. But I'd always stay overnight if I go that far.

    1. London has some great food...i lived in blackheath for a few years...i haven't found proper crispy duck here at home...i might travel just for that!...and i too would spend the night :)
      thanks for stopping by

  5. LOL i love this post! We are currently planning a trip (back to for me but first time for the kids and hubby) to Malaysia haha and its all based on whats in season fruit wise for us how sad is that?!?!
