If you’re in London, and want to play it safe by following the trends and becoming part of the popular local “food stream,” current research suggests that you should eat a burger followed by Neapolitan ice cream. If you’re in Montreal, it’s poutine and vanilla ice cream. In New York, it’s sushi followed by chocolate ice cream. The data are clear; this is what people are eating in these cities (Canadian Dairy Information Centre, 2016; Diamond, 2015; Swanson, 2015; Victor, 2015). So, if you want to be a part of the crowd and eat foods that you know you can find in these locations, then these are by far your best choices. And, if a highly regarded external rating of the cook drives your food choices, then maybe it’s time for a burger made by a Michelin star chef for your next meal (Lendrum, 2016).
