Driving Hungry is part travel memoir and part foodie experience, as Layne Mosler chronicles her adventures of finding good, cheap food by asking taxi drivers in Buenos Aires, New York City and Berlin.
I will admit that this is more of a travel adventure, with a few comments about food, but that was okay with me. I enjoyed seeing Argentina through Mosler’s eyes, learning the tango and feeling romantically conflicted by her partner. I used to live in New York City, so I very much understood her challenges in getting cab drivers to open up. She eventually got her own hack license, and her experiences of being a New York City cab driver were both interesting and amusing. On the word of an essay she read, the author decided that Berlin was a city she needed to experience, and so we, the readers, also traveled there, experiencing a city that is in continual change.
Driving Hungry is a must read for anyone interested in travel and adventure!
