We are a culture of food-obsessed folks! From the popularity of food-related television like Bravo's hit Top Chef (I'm counting the minutes till the new season!) and the Food Network's spin-off Cooking Channel, to the nation-wide obsession with cupcakes and Starbucks, we all just love what tastes good. Honeymooners are no exception to this rule. In fact, most newlyweds spend a good portion of their trips seeking out satisfying and indulgent nosh.

Sumptuous dinner in Spain
Total foodies Jaime and David couldn't go to Madrid and pass up the chance for the 23-course tasting menu at La Terraza Del Casino. The truly decadent meal (as seen in the photo above) features treats like ceps with onion, bacon and port wine sauce, sweet potato chips, licorice cake with ice cream, lime pudding and creamy chocolate. Jaime suggests making reservations well in advance of your trip to ensure you get a table.

Healthy and friendly in London
The Wagamama family of restaurants in London have the winning combination of fantastic food and affordable prices. Settle in at one of their communal tables and take in the sights and smells of their open air kitchen and bustling locations. You can't go wrong with any of the Japanese-inspired dishes – especially the ramen. The food is served up quickly, accompanied by a good beer and wine selection. This chain has become so popular they've expanded into over a dozen other counties. American honeymooners can skip the international flight and head to one of three Boston locations.

How to splurge on a budget
Lots of couples will want to have a great meal every night of their trip. However, having just paid for a wedding means that many are counting their pennies even while vacationing. We love the idea that Katie and Robert had when vacationing in St. Lucia. They brought some snacks from home for lunches and had a simple room-service fruit platter for breakfast each morning. That left them free to indulge at dinner time and have no eater's remorse the next morning.
