Viajar alrededor del mundo puede llegar a ser una gran experiencia, sobre todo si ha sido una de tus metas por cumplir en la vida. ¿Pero viajar para probar la comida típica del lugar?, eso sólo lo haría quien es un verdadero amante de la comida.
Melissa Hie es una diseñadora de Singapore que en mayo de 2014 comenzó a postear en su cuenta girleatworld una serie de fotografías de sus irresistibles bocadillos pero con un fondo muy especial: el fondo de cada uno de los países y lugares en donde ha estado. Lo sé, es muy difícil no estar celosos de Melissa, y es que prácticamente vive la fantasía de muchos.
Hasta hoy ha logrado comer en 31 países y al parecer su proyecto va para largo, pues comenta que su espíritu aventurero aún tiene mucho por descubrir. Aquí algunas de las deliciosas aventuras de sus viajes.
??? Too cute to eat!!! When i saw this Hello Kitty dim sum featured by @danielfooddiary, my first reaction was "I MUST HAVE IT NOW ?". So, off I went to the Hello Kitty restaurant which offers tons of Kitty-themed dishes! Traditionally, this is Liu Sha Bao aka Salted Egg Yolk custard bun – which is a popular part of dim sum and best known for the liquid salted egg yolk filling which is sweet and full of flavors. Many people complained about the food quality here, but I think they have improved since the first opening a few months ago. You shouldn't go here expecting for the best dimsum (especially in Hong Kong), but if you are a Hello Kitty fan you MUST go! #toocutetoeat The Dapper collection by @danielwellingtonwatches launches today! It's men's watch but I love the deep blue hands. Use "dwGirleatsworld" for a further 20% discount at their website! Code has been extended to 30th October ??

??? Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I'm super excited to let you know Fat Tire Paris (@FatTireParis) is giving away a FREE TRIP TO PARIS FOR TWO. This includes flights, accommodation and custom itinerary with Fat Tire tours in the magical city of love! Contest ends on 30 September. ???Click the link in my bio for info! How do I know about Fat Tire tours? ? When I went on my europe trip two years ago, looong before #GirlEatWorld was born, I booked a day tour with Fat Tire tours to see the city of Berlin on a bike. I ended up enjoying the day so much that I came back the next day and did another half day tour with them. The best way to really experience a city is on a bike! Since then, I have been recommending this tour to my friends who visit Europe. I hope one of you gets the chance to experience the tour too ? #FatTireParisGiveAway #FatTireParis #sp
3. Sidney, Australia
Friends in Asia – Happy Monday! Everyone else – enjoy your Sunday night. This is Sydney's famous Harbour Bridge from my australia trip with @yhaaustralia a few months ago :) ? The steel bridge was first opened ~80 years ago in 1932 and connects the Sydney Central Business District to the North Shore. TIP ?: You can pay some money to climb the bridge or you can walk across the bridge (for free, there is a pedestrian section) for an amazing view of the Sydney Opera House!

4. Hong Kong
Oops- have you ever eaten so much street food that you forgot to post up the pic after? ? or is it a #girleatworldproblem? This is spicy fishball curry from street snack vendors for HK$20, which i had nearly everyday in Hong Kong. So yummy and so easy to get. #GirlEatHK Warm welcome to new friends from ?? Portugal! It seems that I was featured on a newspaper @publicop3. Hope to visit your beautiful country soon! ??

8. Jiufen, Taiwán
Another Taiwanese delicacy #GirlEatWorld by @sceetheworld and @ricardo.rivero – stinky tofu at Jiufen on Shuqi road. Stinky tofu is both loved and hated by many. It's made using a mixture of fermented milk, meat and vegetable which gives it a very distinctive smell that some find repulsive – like how blue cheese affects some people. There are many ways to serve stinky tofu, in Taiwan it's often deep fried like this! Jiufen is also popular for being the model location for the popular Miyazaki anime "Spirited Away" ?. If you have watched it, you can see some familiar elements that are used frequently in the anime – the red lanterns?, steep stairs, abundant food stalls and even the bath house! And if you haven't watched it, well… you definitely should ?

#GirlEatWorld by @angelydub – some strawberries ?? dipped in Godiva belgian chocolate in La Grand-Place in Brussels. I love the gold accents on the guildhalls! Grand Place is the central square of Brussels. Containing both public and private building, it has not changed for over three centuries. The place was named UNESCO World Heritage site in 1998 ??

#girleatworld by @gretybear. Donuts from Top Pot at Kerry Park in Seattle, WA, where you get a breathtaking view of downtown Seattle. You can see the Space Needle on the background, which is an iconic symbol of the city! As @gretybear said – Donuts are always necessary ??? Did you know the official spelling for donuts is 'doughnuts'? It makes sense but I still prefer 'donuts'! What about you?
11. Milán, Italia
Helado de vainilla
Happy valentine's day everyone! ???? This is a #throwback to my time in London last summer! Cute gingerbread man from Cinnamon Tree Bakery from Borough Market (@boroughmarket), eaten at St Paul's Cathedral. When i take pictures for @girleatworld, i take lots of pics each time and choose only one that I like the most to post here. It's hard work! ;) This one didn't make the cut, but I was looking back at my travel pics and remembered how much I liked that gingerbread man…. ? so maybe i'll post a few that didn't quite make the cut some time in the future.

13. Seúl, Corea
4. Ridiculous 32cm ice cream cone ? at Myeongdong shopping district in Seoul, Korea ??. This is my most well-loved #girleatworld at 8,334 likes! Visiting Seoul and Chuncheon was one of my fondest memories this year. As a teenager i lived in a very korean-centric city in Southern California (Cerritos!) and was influenced by tons of korean culture, from the pop music, friends to food. To this day, Korean food remains my most favorite cuisine ever~ 한국 음식을 사랑! ? #icecreamofinsta #먹스타그램
