If you have a craving for a good meal with a side of adventure, you’ll want to travel to the most unique restaurants in the world -many which are in remote places.
If you’re like me, and you have a passion for food, then chances are you’re willing to travel to the other side of the city for the best sushi on a Saturday afternoon.
Or you’re game for heading to the suburbs for the yummiest tacos or most delicious Korean BBQ.
But do you truly have an insatiable urge to seek out the most tantalizing and unique restaurants in the world? If so…you’ll want to gobble up this information!
My friend Joanne has this urge to try amazing and unique foods from everywhere in our world! And so she’s always hopping on planes to satisfy her love for awesome food.
Joanne has told me about the some of the world’s most remote and unique eateries – and I wanted to share her suggestions with you!
Please keep in mind that these amazing international restaurants are not located a train ride away! You might have to hop on a plane, set sail on a ship, and board a train, and then trek for hours just to get to these delicious cuisines.
That said, once you get to these places, pure magic awaits you! Basically these are some of the world’s most interesting, delicious, and creative restaurants, all of which are located in the most remote places on earth.
Joanne says when you get to these remote restaurants, you’ll find stunning scenery, a jaw-dropping atmosphere, and truly ‘off the beaten track’ locales that will have your friends and family in awe.
I’m excited to share with you the world’s best restaurants in remote places.
Sure, you can access the iconic world heritage site of Machu Picchu by minibus or by train, but the most savvy travellers arrive on foot, after a 4 day trek across the Inca Trail. This iconic hiking experience tops every travel bug’s bucket list, and for good reason. At the end of the trip, you will certainly be hungry for the rustic yet delicious Peruvian classics served up at Tampu – not to mention the sweeping views.
Located at the southernmost tip of South America, you will find La Mesita de Almanza. You’ll find this gem of a restaurant easily once you are in Tierra del Fuego (which means “Land of Fire”), but getting to the Tierra del Fuego is the hard part! A tough terrain, countless transfers, and multiple travel permits – you’ll definitely be hungry by the time you tuck into your meal.
The Faroe Islands are isolated in the first place, located in the Arctic Ocean between Norway and Iceland, and reaching Nordasti Hagi Restaurant is even more challenging. Located in a centuries-old rustic farmhouse, you must either walk along the rugged coast for 30 minutes or hitch a ride in an off-road vehicle.
Chinese cuisine is known throughout the world for its delicious flavour and dedication to quality ingredients – but are you willing to risk your life for a cup of tea and snacks? Ok, maybe we are exaggerating the danger, but the journey to Mount Huashan Teahouse is not for the faint of heart! First you take a breathtaking gondola ride, followed by a treacherous hike up a steep mountain – but it is so, so worth it for the view.
Sure, you might want to have a meal at Christian’s Café, but getting there will be an expensive ordeal! This eatery can be found on the world’s most remote inhabited island, and is accessible only by boat after sailing to the centre of the vast South Pacific Ocean. Tourism has only recently been legalised on Pitcairn Island, so you’ll be one of the first travellers to enjoy a bite to eat at this remote restaurant.
The Isle of Skye is a true Northern paradise, a place of untouched wilderness and pristine nature. The Three Chimneys restaurant has been welcoming hungry visitors for more than thirty years – that is, those that are adventurous enough to get there! It is more than a six-hour drive from the closest airport (located in Glasgow), followed by a ferry ride across the sea. Don’t worry – they have rooms upstairs, so you can rest your head before you make your way back to the mainland.
Ithaa (which translates to ‘mother of pearl’ in the local Dhivehi language) can boast that it is the world’s first underwater restaurant. You can enjoy your fresh seafood while coming face to face with its cousins below the waves! The restaurant is five metres below the surface, allowing you unparalleled access to tropical fish, sharks, stingrays, and manta rays. Make sure you book ahead, as the restaurant only seats 14 people at one time.
All of these restaurants are sure to satisfy your cravings for delicious food – and an exotic location. Get your passport, and get hungry!
