Foods i loved in the USA

It’s no secret that one of my top reasons to travel is my love for good food!
On my first trip to the US, all i knew about American food was pizza, hamburgers and Diet Coke.
So it was surely a pleasant surprise for me to discover a plethora of delicious foods during my travels. Here are my top picks.

Leading an experimental life as a digital nomad, I started traveling in 2007 while choosing to shuttle between Goa and Mumbai as 'home'. An epic life-changing trip to South America an year later gave birth to this blog, Exotic Gringo.
