The world is the most amazing museum one could ever explore. Food, being a large part of one’s own unique culture, is diverse around the world; an excerpt from Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2013, this article features temples of modest yet bizarre dishes that will tickle even your most hidden tastebuds.

Jell-O Gallery in LeRoy, USA

Jell-O Museum

Pearle Wait, a carpenter from LeRoy, New York, never thought that the plain gelatine-based dessert he invented in his home would make it big in the food industry. Selling his recipe to brainy marketers, Jell-O became blockbuster in the dawn of the 20th century. As the recipe books for this invention were distributed, the world eventually became inspired of the very easy and convenient just-add-water pleasures of preparing the dish. Located between Rochester and Buffalo, its gallery showcases its history with the emphasis on the celebrities of different media who have endorsed it throughout its existence. Another attraction is a gift shop filled with jelly-related souvenirs.

This is because it’s more than just a meal that joins breakfast and lunch together. For Dubai’s ultra-busy cosmopolitan inhabitants, brunch is a chance to socialize, relax, and to get the party started. Take note, Dubai’s population is largely composed of expats who are mostly Westerners, so while the city is still governed by stringent U.A.E . rules and the country’s strong Islamic culture, brunches tend to encourage more than just the loosening of the diner’s belts.
