Japanese food is third favourite for travellers

A new survey has found that Japanese fare is closing in on traditionally favored cuisines like Italian and French among globetrotters, with sushi the most sought after food within the Japanese culinary repertoire.

Among 27,000 respondents surveyed by online accommodation site Hotels.com, 18 percent of respondents said they crave Japanese food when traveling, compared to 32 percent who named Italian cuisine, and 24 percent who named French fare.

The Japanese dish most craved? Sushi came out on top, at 74 percent, followed by tempura, popular among 57 percent of respondents.

Meanwhile, ramen — bowls of noodles in a fish or meat-based broth — are also popular Japanese dishes.
