How does a die-hard cyclist find his dream meal? Bike around a few continents looking for it.
Tom Kevill Davies, the self-titled Hungry Cyclist, quit his job in London to spend more than two years cycling across North and South America, in search of the best eats the hemisphere had to offer. Some of his best bites? Menudo in Mexico, globo biscuits on Rio's Ipanema Beach, fried pig’s fat in Colombia, and—eek—fried piranhas in Manaus, Brazil.
More on these dishes, and many others, in his book, The Hungry Cyclist, out this week.
