Road Food is our choice for a Travel Forum. Let's try to keeps the Forum Headings simple, if you have a question, we are certainly happy to explain the wording on the site based in the US. It would be very difficult to create forums across the board that make sense to people from around the world.

Back to the topic at hand Misunderstandings and language differences about food from country to country.

If you would like to continue this pursuit of new forums or changing titles to established forums please post in the TECH/Admin Forum.

I do not know if we need a vote to create something like this, but if we do count me as 1. What do other people have to say?

Road food because it's what you eat on a road trip.

There's a lot of tripe space here in Montana, too! I think there is a trend going on up here as all the Mexican restaurants are advertising Menudo and it's not just for Cinco de Mayo.

So if you travel within your own country , driving , train trips, coaches etc then it's Road Food , but if you fly abroad whats it called ? It's not a road trip is it ? It just sounds a bit limiting. Then again , in the US you fly to other states, is it still a road trip ?
