Splurge: Local Food
Don't bother with overpriced Paris hot dogs geared toward American tourists; do definitely bother with the fine French café your friend recommended if you ever made it to the City of Lights.
Great, authentic local food, especially if you're going abroad, without kids, can be one of the best splurges of your trip. It can be critical to experiencing the culture of the place, and fine dining in an exotic locale is seldom a waste of money.
If fine dining isn't your thing, go for lower priced, authentic local fare. It's a shame to leave without eating what the locals love, if only once.
