If you travel on a different country or place where will you eat or what you want to eat? Are you still looking the food what your eating in your country? Or eat what the locals in that country are eating?

hello leeapollo yeah you got it that's the way it should always be..... why would you eat at mcdonalds on another place where you could eat locally at home.... beside if just once in a life time to get there on a different place why not experience all its fullness on the food people eating.... in that way at least you can understand what culture they have on that place....

when traveling, we usually eat what the locals are eating :) It is nice to discover new food! but we also try the mcdonalds to see the "special item" in their country. In Hong Kong, they have noodle soup with the sausage patties in them. In the Philippines, they have spaghetti and chicken with rice. In Thailand, they have hot soup and corn pie. In Malaysia and Singapore they have chicken foldovers :) I am looking forward to sampling Mcdonalds cuisine in other continents aside from asia soon!

Never McDonalds when I am travelling. Part of the adventure of travelling is trying local restaurants and local foods. Heck I dont eat McDonalds here at home lol. There's just so many other yummier places to eat for me.

I do both. Sometimes it's which is fastest. Sometimes I have time to sit and enjoy the local cuisine.

I really like travelling also because I like to taste other dishes... I went to several different country and everytime I tried local dishes.. For example when i went to china, I tasted chinese dishes and they were really really yummy, differently from those cooked here. I would never go to mac donald.
