I don't think I could pick just one meal, there's too many amazing foods out there... here are some interesting ones off the top of my head:

A new one to me moving here to the UK is a good Sunday Roast - Especially at a pub that takes real care in the meal... it's usually a big slab of roast pork, Beef, or lamb surrounded by Yorkshire pudding, potatoes, parsnips, gravy, and assorted veg. A good one is amazing!

Image

some others would be a good steak (bife de chorizo) in Buenos Aires with peri-peri and caprese salad on the side, maybe a good Mendoza wine along with it. Why else go to Argentina?

Another amazing steak experience out of N Spain is a Chuletón, best found at Siderias. It's a thick flavorful steak dinner at a hard cider house where you can help yourself to the drinks from giant 12ft diameter barrels. It's a great meal, and it's interactive!

Image

Justin - I'm out of NC too, and the BBQ pork down there is pretty special.. especially the vinegar style (not the tomato sauce type out of some confused counties). I keep planning to have a proper pig pickin out here one of these days ;-) Maybe my parents can send me some of that sauce..

tons of others, but I could go on and on..

Bone marrow from Longman & Eagle in Chicago! I never thought eating out of a femur could be so delicious. Wash that down with an Old Fashioned and you are set. (I lifted these beautiful pics from the internets)

Took a trip out to San Fran and wine country last month. Here are a couple of the fantastic meals that I had. First is a Crab Cake Benedict from the Eagle Cafe on the wharf and the second is a fantastic Burger from a small cafe in Glenn Ellen called the Fig Cafe. This was the first restaurant started by the chef that now owns the famous Girl and the Fig.

I completely forgot about this post... I apologize for the crappy Blackberry photo


Well, it was yuzu sorbet encased in a white chocolate sphere. When the warm cranberry sauce was poured over the sphere in an "X" shape it blossomed like a flower... Stunning.

I was staying with some Beduins in Israel / West bank area and we had fantastic meals, chicken, lamb, lots of veggies, but it was amazing.

I want to try Alinea in Chicago I hear it's alright....... :wink:

Foie gras is always good, Dry Aged stakes, Qual and Dove are tasty too.... I'll think of a few places I like to hit.

When I was young in Sweden we would get Whale (blue maybe), if you like stakes it will knock your socks off.



Hope PETA doesn't read this post........ :roll:

This is a foodie story I thought I'd share (the most memorable thing I ever ate) :

When I was a kid I spent a few days in a coastal tribe living under a palm thatched hut, sleeping on the floor with no electricity in the company of a few high school friends.

The locals treated us like royalty since my friends uncle, an anthropologist, had spent some time with them and helped them financially in return for letting him study their ways.

So one morning they wake us up, give us a canoe and some paddles and give us instructions to go to the beach ( through the jungle, past the creek, watch out for snakes, go over the sandbar).

When we arrived we witnessed sea turtles hatching by the thousands ! like ants coming out of the sand as far as the eye could see. We immediately noticed they were being picked up by seagulls and crabs by the hundreds, we spent something like 8 hours protecting the turtles, lobbing sand to seagulls, carrying them to the water, shooing crabs. We finally conceded defeat after realizing just how many they were and how little difference we were making, it was a most memorable yet brutal occasion.

After having BBQ sea ray caviar (tastes like bacon) and fish for lunch and a little more turtle saving and canoe paddling we called it a day and went back to the shack for dinner.

Upon arrival we were presented with turtle eggs for us to try, ( they told us they were allowed a few by the government), we respectfully declined, but they respectfully insisted, after some back and forth we decided what the heck, we saved hundreds of turtles, yet we witnessed mass turtle casualties, overall we made a positive impact and we were curious kids.

Before you go on a clandestine turtle egg culinary tour, let me tell you, they taste like crap, the most refined and complex crap you have ever tasted, the flavor is so intense that my taste buds start acting out decades after slurping it just by thinking about it, I have also never tasted anything like it again, but I will give you a hint , when you open a bottle of hefeweizen beer, for some reason franziskaner brand is so far the closest, smell it, now imagine it is distilled with the intensity of cognac, then grab this flavor and present it in a more textured oyster consistency, that's the closest I can describe them.

As for the best thing I ever ate, I am mostly vegetarian these days, but I used to work at Park chow in San Francisco and the cooks liked me for some reason and took extra care of my favorite dish the short ribs on a bed of mashed potatoes, I believe one day they achieved perfection.

I am a foodie as well who loves to cook, travel around and explore. Some of my favorite gems have been dives off the beaten path. One such place is Supermarket Acapulco Tropical, Inc. That has a hidden restaurant in the back. The food is authentic and absolutely amazing! You can't go wrong with tacos al pastor...
