About Us

We see travel through the lens of food and drink…

We will hop on a plane, bus, train and taxi to savor one life-changing dish. We would rather stand in line for a supreme street taco than stand in line to see a museum’s masterpiece.

We want to meet local artisans. We want to shop with locals. We want to learn from locals. We want to cook with locals. We want to eat with locals. And we will go to the end of the earth to do so.

There is no end to our culinary wanderlust.

We live to eat, drink and explore and we’re here to share those solid eating and drinking recommendations, culinary itineraries, and must-do gastronomic activities with our fellow impassioned food travelers.

Stuff that matters to us…

Curated Content We Can Stand By

Our site is about quality, not quantity. We’d rather recommend three memorable food tours than 20 so-so ones. We would never want to spend our hard-earned cash on a week-long cooking school vacation, or even an afternoon cooking class, and feel we didn’t get our money’s worth. We are here to connect culinary enthusiasts to meaningful, authentic experiences and meals. That’s why everything—and everyone—we feature on bitesee is carefully selected and, whenever possible, road tested.

Bitesee’s contributors are local and professional food writers who have years of experience, discerning taste, and extreme culinary curiosity.
