We all enjoy trying new cuisines while traveling the world, but this force of habit comes at a high price. Fortunately, it’s possible to try local specialties and eat on a budget at the same time – as long as you follow these useful tips.

Right Accommodation

Booking the right hostel can save you a surprising amount of money on food. Always pick accommodation with a shared kitchen so you could prepare your meals, and consider booking one that comes with free breakfast, as well.

Proper Research

Don’t just make a stop at any restaurant that seems interesting. Check their menu first, and make sure you’re not breaking the bank if you have a meal there. Eating street food is a good way to try some traditional treats, but ask your hostel staff for some recommendations since this option comes with a couple of safety risks.

Fine Dining

Allow yourself to try signature local foods and visit cute restaurants that you saw online even when you’re eating on a budget. You can always save a bit of money by opting for breakfast or lunch, instead of dinner, since it’s usually a more affordable alternative.
