Tom’s International Dining

Tom's International Dining

One of the most enjoyable parts of traveling includes eating cuisine from different foreign countries.  If you have read any of our international trip accounts, we always include the restaurants we have visited.  In this section of Tom’s Dining Out, we examine some of the more recent dining establishments that have served us memorable meals in Europe and Canada.  Hopefully, we’ll be able to travel again soon and once again savor the various delectable dishes each country has to offer.
