Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. In Locals Know, I explore a new city through the tours of Urban Adventures.

Along the Danube River sits a great capital with stunning architecture and hidden surprises. I’m not talking about Vienna or Budapest. Everybody knows about those cities. Bratislava is a somewhat undiscovered gem that has all these things and more. And because it is much smaller than the others, it feels much more manageable and quaint.

But like most cities, the tourists gather in the main part of town. I got to see so much more of Bratislava than most visitors ever do because I met up with Lukas from Urban Adventures who let me in on the Local Secrets of Bratislava. We visited a modern brewery run by punk rockers, had a picnic with incredible sites, and took a trolley to a beautiful neighborhood that I never would have discovered if it wasn’t for my local guide.

Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

When a dish comes out of the kitchen glowing red and spiked with peppercorns, I’m expecting some heat. The only thing that hinted at the spice level for this clear green fish soup was the name “spicy” and the two pepper symbols on the menu. It was a unique floral, numbing spice and was one of the most exciting dishes I’ve tasted at a Chinese restaurant.

Price: $25

Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. In Locals Know, I explore a new city through the tours of Urban Adventures.

You’ll be hearing a lot more about Bucharest soon, trust me. The tourism industry in the capital of Romania is growing and before you know it, you will understand why it is often called “Paris of the East.” Its stunning architecture is a cornicopia of different styles and eras. Its food is satisfying and rich. And there is plenty of romantic plazas and gardens to rival the City of Love.

On the Urban AdventuresBohemian Bucharest tour, I got to really get a local sense of this ever-growing and vibrant city. We rode on the tram past some fascinating Communist buildings, visited abandoned mansions that are now young, hip bars, and explored a local market where we were the only ones who didn’t speak Romanian.

As much as I’d like to eat four donuts, the reality is I would hurt myself. We have to know our limitations. At Rider, they were kind enough to let me order just one donut. It was sprinkled with lemon and fennel sugar with a side of creme fraiche. It turned out to be so good I wanted three more.

Price: $12

The newest food court to open in the city (there will probably be a new one by the time you read this) is an extension of Gotham West Market but now in Brooklyn. These are all new vendors and the strangely named Spatchcocked Chicken was so good it got me all spatchcocked (whatever that means!)

Price: $10/$17/$32
