Traveling for good food and incredible restaurants is a popular motivation for many backpackers and prospective tourists. Whether venturing to the US for the most mouthwatering restaurants or visiting the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurants, traveling to sample the local cuisine is a journey. What's more, while some restaurants offer an unusual and worthwhile experience, others boast of being the smallest around, seating a limited number of customers. Traveling foodies, take note: these restaurants around the world are tiny in terms of their square footage but are still worth visiting!
