One of the many reasons to love travel is because it’s an excellent excuse to eat well in the interest of understanding different cultures and places through food. From giant burritos in San Francisco, to that perfectly gooey giant slice of New York pizza, there are local treats all across the country that are worth getting on the road for. In Portland, Oregon, which is a bit of a foodie haven thanks to its sustainable locavore culture, there are not only bucket list-worthy eats to try, there are also a lot of quirky places to try them, like food carts and converted buses.

One of the things that makes San Francisco beautiful is the colorful collection of people from many corners of the world who contribute to the eclectic melting pot of a city. Generations of settlers have brought the rituals, arts and foods of their home countries, connecting travelers and visitors with different cultures just within the Bay.
