My husband and I share a passion for food, wine, and wandering through the city in pursuit of delicious things to eat and drink. I started this blog when we returned to our home of Washington DC after a 15 year absence to find a very different city undergoing an explosion of urban renewal. We had a great time food crawling through the culturally diverse areas of DC and sampling the local restaurants.

In 2016, we started another new chapter in life and moved to Valencia, Spain to experience the food and culture of the Mediterranean. The markets of Spain are full of beautiful fresh produce, meat, and seafood that we just had to bring home and learn to cook for ourselves. And so, along the way we share recipes inspired by the Spanish markets.

Now, in 2019, we have returned to North America and are settling into San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. We are excited to share our experiences exploring the bold, colorful, and diverse cuisine of Mexico.

So why food crawls?

Whether we are exploring our home town or traveling to a new city, food crawling is our favorite way to experience the local culture. We like to get beyond the tourist areas and go to the neighborhoods, seeking out restaurants that make food for people, not critics. After all, food is more than just something to eat. It is a reflection of the people who grow it, cook it, eat it, and share it.

I hope youโ€™ll enjoy following along with us on these food crawls and maybe even use them as inspiration to plan your own.

  4. Hi Julia,
    I discover your page these days and it was great to see that you love Spain and our culture and how write about it. I would like to invite to visite the Northern, even there is less tourism than in the South or in the Mediterranean coast, I am sure you will enjoy it. I am from Leon where we have have good food and wine and recently a craft beer industry growing up. I invite you to discover this part of the country as well.
    All the best,
