I am kind of a food appreciator and amateur cook, so I always look forward to try samples of local cuisine everywhere I go. Sometimes, though, finding where a particular dish is served is not very easy, especially if it is localized to a certain region or not usually sought after by tourists.
So, my question is whether asking how to procure a certain dish are on-topic.
A sample question would probably go something like this:
I'm in city X in Albania and I'm looking to try the famous tavë kosi - a dish with lamb, rice and yoghurt. I've checked a few restaurants around, but wasn't able to find it. Where can I try it? Is it localized to a certain region only, or does it have a different name I'm not aware of? Or is it made only during a specific time of the year?
General food recommendations of the type "I'm in city X, what can I eat here?" are of course soliciting opinions, and should be closed as usual.
