Should you be looking to eat out in any big city around the globe, you will want to make sure there is plenty of choice on offer. You might be surprised at the number of national cuisines you can discover in the surrounding streets.
Now a new interactive tool by the legal firm of Bott & Co attempts to highlight the biggest global cities with the most diverse foodie culture. The company have listed the top 50 locations where you are able to hop from one nationality to another and partake of some really interesting meals.
Let us take a quick look at the top five on the foodie list:
1. New York
Culturally diverse, because of the range of nationalities setting up home there, you will not be surprised to find New York at the top of the list with 94 cuisines from around the world. That includes the usual French, Italian and Chinese, but you will also discover the taste of Mongolian, Iraqi, and Nigerian food with plenty of restaurants to tantalise you taste buds.
The UK capital is not that far behind New York with 89 different nationalities represented on the foodie front. The restaurants are more spread out than in many other cities, but you can still find a host of interesting cuisines to take advantage of. Hit the wilds of Wood Green if you fancy some Congolese fayre or you can find some decent Romanian dishes down in Morden.
Toronto is next on the list with 73 nationalities and, as with many other cities, it is all pretty varied. You can sample some Grenadian food in the city center, head to the dock area for some delicious Thai, or find excellent Sri Lankan cooking out in Scarborough.
Another American city fits in at #4 on the list with 66 national cuisines on offer, including Dominican, Japanese, Greek, and Polish. Chicago is a hub for business gatherings from all around the world, as well as a major tourist destination, so it is no wonder the food has to be good.
You may have thought Paris would be a little higher on the list, but it still boasts 65 national cuisines. There is a lot to choose from, including Swedish cooking on the Rue de Rivoli and Venezuelan specialities at Notre Dame.
Other cities that figure highly on the list might surprise you. Dubai makes a decent entry into the top ten with 62 national cuisines represented, while Tokyo is not to far behind with 58.
The interactive tool uses a color coded system to highlight different types of food, everything from North and South American to European and Asian. Click on a particular city and you will get an even more detailed outline of individual restaurants and their ethnicity. The tool links into Google Maps, so clicking on a color spot will come up with all the location details and more.
