We are food obsessed here at LivingSocial and we know we aren’t alone. The lure of spice has launched voyages for millennia. Humans love food and we will travel for it. Fortunately, all you need to do is choose a flavor and point and click to enjoy some of our favorite food destinations around the world.

New York is the restaurant capital of the world. Not only does the town boast every type of food conceived by man, it’s also available 24 hours a day. Just choose a neighborhood — uptown, downtown, midtown — and walk two blocks in any direction. The same is true for the City of Lights where you can indulge in the best of your arrondissement. Follow your nose to an aromatic tagine in the Marias, the perfect apricot tart at Bastille, or a paper-thin crepe at a café in Montemartre.

For more cutting-edge flavor, look no further than the pop-up eateries and fleets of food trucks in Austin, Texas, and Portland, Oregon. Both hipster heavens are home to crazy geniuses who push every kind of food envelope that exist. Expect surprising taste combinations and international mashups. Graze your way through kimchi quesadillas and Viking soul food and wash them down with a locally brewed IPA or a transcendent pinot noir.

If your spice road heads decidedly East and you need to satisfy your insatiable craving for Tom Yum Goong, look no further than this amazing getaway to the Four Seasons Hotel in Bangkok.

Then there’s Italy. Picture yourself arriving at a costal farmhouse where you learn to make some classic dishes of the Emilia-Romagna region, the cradle of artisanal ingredients. Wandering out only to the winery.

Travel Tuesday, you have made us hungry.
