I guess we can all agree that now it’s easier to get whatever you can think of: accessories, clothing, shoes, electronics, books, magazines, etc., from all around the world. However, there are still some things that are hard to get in a certain country. Especially when we talk about food and drinks. 

Reddit users were asked:  “What common foods in your country are considered delicacies by foreigners?” The list of things that people love but find hard to get in their country goes on and on, from common things such as tap water or bread to caviar, rare meat, or maple syrup. These not only include products but also various dishes that are hard to make right. One of the things that some people named were French pastries. Even though you can find a baguette or croissant in almost every country, people still find these pastries to be best made by the French. And it seems that people who find them seize the opportunity to savor them as much as possible. So, if you are French, don’t be surprised to see a person with 12 or so baguettes going down the street. Also, some people were surprised to find that caviar is found as a delicacy, while for them, it’s a common food. The question that has almost 47k upvotes received many more funny yet understandable answers. 

Do you have any foods that didn't make it to the list? Then don’t forget to leave them in the comments down below!

30 Foods That Foreigners Consider To Be Delicacies But For Locals They’re Common, Shared In This Online Group French here so, a lot of our food. If there's one thing we know how to do, it's exporting our food as fancy delicacies.

The truth is, apart from pastries/desserts which can be pretty complicated to put together (the effort to make even just twelve croissants...), most French food is just peasant stuff spruced up for the modern times. The logic is almost always:

Take a cheap-ish cut of meat

Cook it either in wine or in broth for a few hours with a bunch of onions and whatever herbs grow nearby

Add carrots/potatoes, enjoy

That's the basis for bœuf bourguignon, coq au vin, gigot d'agneau, pot-au-feu, blanquette de veau, etc. If you want to get fancy you can wrap it in pastry, and that's another dozen French specialties right there.

There's not really a way to f**k it up, really. It's meat, cooked at low heat over several hours, with a bunch of aromatic herbs; as long as you've got a sturdy pot and you don't let it dry, you'll get something in the range from edible to delicious.

30 Foods That Foreigners Consider To Be Delicacies But For Locals They’re Common, Shared In This Online Group Water, our tap water is perfect and no local ever buys bottled (iceland)

A lot of people are mentioning the sulfur smell of the hot water, and that depends on the area. For example where I live the hot water comes directly from a nearby hot spring area so naturally its gonna have a smell. Locals dont smell it though.

For drinking water you just need to run the tap for a bit, that will get any hot water outta the pipes and bring you spring water.

The thing about smell. Water, the basic drinking liquid, which we perceive as neutral, actually has a taste, which differs based on minerals, I guess? Water in Croatia is a bit sweet compared to Korean water (either bottled or tap water), which is a bit bitter in taste. It's interesting to travel far and find out the things we take for granted are actually so amazing.

This is actually true in most of the world. Most cities provide clean, potable water, better than you buy in the store. The problem tends to be pipes.

30 Foods That Foreigners Consider To Be Delicacies But For Locals They’re Common, Shared In This Online Group Hmm, forest berries perhaps.

I live in Finland. We have a lot of forests, so lot of berries such as blueberries and lingonberries. Everyman's Rights mean that you can just go and pick as much as you can find. It's kinda one of those things where if you live near any forested area, and are willing to spent time there come late summer, you'll probably have enough to last until next year in your freezer.

We have so much berries that people from poorer countries (Thailand is a common one for some reason) are hired to pick them up, because doing berrypicking enough to actually profit monetarily is heavy work, and apparently the pay isn't worth it for most Finns.

At the same time, forest berries are considered a superfood around the world, very healthy and trendy. Dunno about actual delicacy status, but definitely a difference in how we think about them.
