I usually eat what they eat. I have lived in Hungary and Germany and love their cuisine. Of course, they offer a lot of fried things so I didn't eat that way daily and would try and find things a little healthier when eating out.

When travelling, I always seek out regional specialties to eat. I love to try new foods, and am rather adventurous and not squeamish at all.

eat first... ask later
I found a lot of tasty things that I wouldn't have normally touched by doing this!
Food is the easiest (and tastiest) way to get to know a culture. Packing local food to take with you defeats the purpose of traveling, in my eyes.
I still always as what something is, and if I don't want to try it then I won't.

If I'm offered something that I don't recognize, I usually ask what it is & then try it. A lot of times I find something new that I like.

When i travel, i go with the diet of the land. i did not order it specifically. I saw it on my plate and i ate it. But i know of people who pack local food stuff to last the duration of their trips

Did you like it? How did you end up ordering it? I can't tell if you're saying it as a positive thing or not.
I think it all depends on why you're in a foreign land. For me, I travel for fun and part of that to me is trying the food so I don't have any problems going to the local restaurants. If you're traveling for work and aren't wanting to try the foods, then you either shouldn't go to local restaurants and try to either get to a grocery store at the beginning of your trip or learn some key words in the language so you don't end up ordering something that looks like a lizard egg. If you're a picky eater, same thing applies.

I once ate something that i thought looked like lizard egg. I was in a foregn land. How do you cope with foreign diets/meals?
