We like being tourists, but what we like more is to 'become a local'.

Being a tourist and a local at the same time seems like an impossible scenario, but it is not really. Even if you are visiting a foreign city for just a few days as backpacker, you want to explore it`s heart and become a local for at least a few hours.

The easiest way to achieve that is to eat like a locals. Here are some tips on what and how you should eat like locals do.

The typical Parisian breakfast consists of a croissant and a cup of coffee. Ok, this will save you some money for sure and it is not sound bad at all. Hot baverege and sweet warm croissant will make you feel like Parisians. At least for some short time. Also, you may want to try eclairs and profiteroles which you can buy in pastries. Later in the day you can choose from a huge list of french dish, but we will mention only few: Quiche – The most famous quiche is a quiche Lorraine, made with egg, cream, cheese, and bits of ham; Croque Monsieur/Madame – The French version of the grilled cheese sandwich; Coq au Vin – chicken cooked in wine; Falafel; Crepes – Ultra-thin pancakes filled with just about anything.

Madrid offers typical food from every region of Spain, and you just must try some. Cocido Madrileño- traditional Spanish stew is serve with vegetables, chickpeas, chorizo sausage and pork; Oreja a la Plancha- pig ears might sound weird but it is tradional dish and it`s very tasty often sprinkled with salt or paprika and occasionally fresh-squeezed lemo; Pincho de Tortilla- Tortilla, or Spanish Omelette you can find every variety of tortilla de patatas ( find the one you like the most)

You might thinking that we will recommend pizza, but we will not. Try Fettuccine al Burro- dish that consists only of long noodles (fettucine), grated cheese, and lots of butter; Baccalà - Deep-fried salt cod; Suppli al Telefono- heap snacks, which are deep-fried rice balls with a melty mozzarella center, are available in most pizzerias and bars and are favored by starving students.

Beans on toast- this is the most famous British bean dish; Bread and butter pudding- traditionally made with white bread, butter, eggs, milk, sugar, and raisins or currants; vanilla, cream, and cinnamon; English breakfest, of course - fried eggs, bacon (usually back bacon), sausage, pan-fried tomatoes and mushrooms, baked beans, and toast; Pie and mash, with liquor- simply, a minced-beef meat pie served with mashed potatoes and a thin green parsley sauce, called liquor ( but no alcohol)

Here you can eat like greeks gods, but you will not be hungry with some traditional, street foods also. Here is our list: Sadziki- Yogurt, cucumber and garlic, and salt; Saganaki- fried cheese. Sometimes comes with tomato sauce; Spanakopita - Spinach pie; Dolmades - Grape-leaves stuffed with rice, onions and sometimes ground beef; Mousaka- Baked and similar eggplant parmegeon but not as tomato saucy. Contains eggplant, potatoes, onions, ground beef, oil, cinnamin, and a flour, milk and butter topping.

Here you can find so much tasty traditional food from all parts of country, but if you want to eat traditional go for Cream and cheese strukli; turkey with mlinci; cevapi - small beef sausages served in bread rolls with raw onion; burek - phyllo-dough filled pastries
