As a gu who loves to try new foods, and always comes home from the market with something I have never tried before from the shelves (much to my family's dismay), I would eat most things at least once. Just last night/this morning I found some DELICIOUS flat Indian bread of some kind at Walmart, and it is so good for sandwiches. I love the ethnic aisles especially, since there are tons of things there I have never even seen.

While there is too much for me to choose a best of the best foodwise, what about you folks?

Best thing I've ever eaten was this one specific piece of Bonito (a specific fish) I had three weeks ago while out with my family. It was literally as if Nirvana revealed itself to me through food, and it was every bit as perfect as the stories claimed. Time slowed down, and I was lost in bliss for what seemed an eternity, but was really about 15 seconds.

Best thing I eat frequently... huh. That's pretty damn hard. I think I'll go with Skyline Chili. Man, I LOVE that place and that chili. There's just something about it that makes me smile every time I walk in. I've NEVER left unhappy. Ever.

Most delicious thing I've ever eaten... I think that would have been in a small Chinese restaurant I visited when I was in Spain on holidays a couple of years ago. They had a very spicy calamari dish there... I like calamari in general, but that tasted completely differently than any calamari I'd ever eaten before, and it was absolutely magnificent. :smallcool:

Most delicious thing I eat regularly... does once per year count as regularly? Because then I'll go for 'barszcz z uszkami' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Uszka-aasica.jpg), a soup made from red beet with mushroom-filled dumplings, quite spicy, too, which is traditionally served in Poland at the Christmas Eve dinner.

Dude, I know you're from that part of the world and all, but man, I can't stand that soup. The dumplings were nice though.

Oh, another DELICIOUS thing I've had recently: fried kibbeh (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kibbeh) (see the top picture). It's a ball of bulgur croquette stuffed with lamb, and IT WAS AMAZING. Man, I want those again, but I can't get them in this country really. :smallsigh:

Most delicious thing I've ever eaten or eat regularily. A hard choice. Barszcz z uszkami is indeed nice, but not really delicious. I can't really name the most delicious thing I've ever eaten, but the tasties thing I eat semi-regularily - once per year, only on Easter, not Christmas - is something my grandmother makes and that pretty much consists of sausage, ham and other meat as well as eggs fried together on a pan. Arteries go clang just by looking at it, but it's great. Here's how it looks like, sort of:

Calamari is scrumptious.

Lime pickle is also tasty, although my family looks at me oddly when I eat it straight out of the jar. BBQ ribs are another good one, or any other spicy/sweet savoury food, really.

Oyako donburi is amazing, as is yakiniku.

Salmon is ten times better uncooked.

I love tapas. My favorite are ones made from shark, I think. I haven't been able to find it again :smallfrown:.

I had this creme brulee once.. man, it was awesome..

Authentic Mexican tacos can be really good, if they don't make you sick :smallamused:.

Uh... I could probably make that. Cook ham, bacon, sausage, whatever meats you want the way you want them. Scramble eggs in the fat left from the meats. Put in bow and mix together a little. Top with whatever you want (I like cheese). Eat.

At least, that's exactly what that looks like, and is precisely how I'd make it. It's DELICIOUS.

I suppose you realize, this means war.

When it comes to Polish dishes, I'm all for pierogi and cold borscht (although that's Lithuanian). Cold borscht is awesomeness in summer (because it's, you know, cold. It looks kinda distressing, but it's really awesome. Believe it!) , pierogi is a very delicious thing and usually available in every restaurant and it's homemade rather easily.

Also, schabowy. :smalltongue: You can never go wrong with it.

That about sums it up. Only you don't scramble eggs but add quarters or halves of hard-boiled eggs after frying the cold meats for a while. The recipe on the site I took the picture from says to top it with horseradish but thankfully, my grandmother doesn't do it.
Of course, it should be noted that this dish is an unhealthy cholesterol bomb.

Ah, you hardboil and quarter the eggs. That'd be pretty good too. I can see horseradish on top actually... that'd be nice. But, then again, I like horseradish sometimes, so :smallbiggrin:.

Most delicious thing was Imperialed Wolffish. I have no idea what that means to prepare it, as I can't find anything online - but that's what it was called at Bonefish Grill. I remember it was stuffed with crab and covered in a white sauce of some sort. Not much help, but that's all I've got.

Well-prepared steaks are incredible as well, and probably the best thing I have regularly is good thick-cut bacon.

Well, the Polish name is "smażonka galicyjska". There's no English name apparently and no English sites containing the Polish name. Turns out it's a rather obscure dish. I guess I could translate the recipe, as it's rather simple...

In dutch(Accurate version): Glipkip(eigen uitvinding/recept), komkommer, appelmoes(heeel klein beetje), ketchup, stroop, poedersuiker, kerriesaus, aardappel(plakjes, niet gebakken of gekookt), twee gourmet-pannenkoekjes en twee champignonnetjes(plakjes).

Slide-chicken(own invention/recipe), cucumber, applesauce(a tiny bit), ketchup, maple syrup, icing sugar(orso google translate tells me), currysauce. potato(slices, neither baked nor cooked), two gourmet-pancakes and some slices of mushroom.

Yes, that is one thing, people apparently think I'm crazy.:smalltongue:

Though I do assure you, it is delicious!:smallbiggrin::smallamused::smallcool:

Naan. You found naan. I love that stuff! Especially when it's cooked with garlic.

Anyway. Something new... Well, at a Chinese restaurant in KL that I ate at with my mum and grandma, I had these cool little dumplings that had soup inside of them. Must be hard to make, but they were sooooo good.

Speedway Eggrolls: Yes, I mean Speedway the gas station. The eggrolls are great for quick, somewhat filling snack. They usually go for $2 for a pair of them.

Local Foods: Whatever town you're in, the small, family-run places are usually the best. I have two examples.

Gordo's Tacos: A place that makes great tacos and burritos mainly due to one factor, they don't use ground beef. They use shredded beef and/or chicken in whatever you order. And they use the good cuts of meat for such things. hey also have the 6 lb. "ElGordo Burrito" which requires 4 tortillas to make, they even give prizes based on how man you eat within two hours.

1 burrito = Sign a poster.
2 burritos = Get your name on a plaque.
3 Burritos = Get your own small plaque and $100.

The price isn 't bad considering its $10 which qeuares to about $1.75 per pound.


Ray's: A classic drive-in diner that has been around since the 60's and sell the best and biggest burgers and tenderloins in town. The food isn't expensive here either. $2 will get you a large cheeseburger with whatever you want on it.

Most delicious? had to say. Venision. Fresh Offal. Red Pole Beef.

Yeah Red Pole Beef. Upgrade the quality of your meat (if you haven't already). Get some game, or local good quality farm meat (buy direct or local butcher, a direct chain as short as pos. you can get great deals, and support the local economy).

I did have a fabulous bagguette that's 'my usual' at a sandwich bar in cambridge. ownership has changed while I'm at uni, but I'm still recognised from my order.

Wholemeal baguette, butter, basil pesto, roasted Mediterranean vegetables and goats cheese. With Hot crispy bacon (british free range, good stuff, only 30p extra too).

Oh man it's good, the creamy salty cheese contrasts with the sweet, oily veg, and the hot bacon gives a wonderful thermodynamic depth to the sandwich.

Along with bacon being awesome!. Good maple or treacle cure bacon.... mmm.

The best meal I ever had was at a restaurant on the island of Mykonos (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mykonos). Started off with fresh bread an assortment of olive oil, which was amazing in itself. Moved on to the best lamb gyro in the world, followed by two shots of ouzo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouzo).

Another one of my favorites was in a little mom-and-pop deli about an hour north of Brisbane, Australia. A simple cheeseburger, garnished with lettuce, onions, a fried egg, a slice of pineapple, and a slice of beetroot. Served with chips (delicious french fries) and a Schweppes lemonade.

I love traveling.

For me it is the T-Bone (or Porterhouse if you want a little more) at a restaurant in Bloomington, IN (thankfully only an hour away from me) called Yanko's. Not sure on the spelling, I've always known it as Zagreb's (the owner was Yugoslavian). The steaks here are very easily the best I have ever had and worth every penny. I've heard (though with no real way to verify) that Billy Joel loves the place. I wouldn't say I eat there refgularly though (2-3 times a year).

Something I eat a little more frequently that I love is the Quesadilla Burger at Applebee's. It's nothing overly complex but it is good.

Something I miss is the fried chicken at Hardee's. The chicken at KFC is alright but I thought Hardee's was better and their bisquits were good too.

Baby. The other, other white meat.
... Hey, somebody had to make the cannibalism jokes.

Venison is great. I'd also recommend looking into some Arabic foods - the Iraqis would roll out a meal every once in a while and invite us to share. I have no idea what they called it, but their food is really good. Rice with hard little fruit in it, some kind of pickled veggie (burgundy in color), and mutton or chicken. Rarely beef - we were in the poorest part of Iraq. We weren't getting anything that outsiders would call fancy, but it was the best they could do. Homecooked Iraqi food is good enough that I'd eat it stateside. Chai is good, too.
That reminds me - I gotta con 'terps into coming over here and opening up restaurants. The path to world peace goes straight through the stomach.

Never have I had a bad meal here. Ever. Despite not being a steakhouse they serve the best steak I have ever had. Ditto on seafood gumbo, breakfast enchiladas, and spicy fettucine.

And their chili with cheese encrusted jalapeno cornbread is to die for.

1: Salmon, cooked in a specific way at one of the restaurants I visit regularly.
2: Chicken Teriyaki Skewers with a specific recipe that is at a restaurant I used to visit regularly (I have since moved)
3: This creamy chicken soup of some sort I had at J. Alexanders, when I first tasted it I exclaimed "This is the best thing I have ever eaten", but after the first bowl it never seemed to taste as good as it did the first time :smallfrown:

3 dishes stand out in my memory as really good

My grandfather's Beef Brasato. He'd get the meat from a local butcher and cook it all weekend to prepare for Sunday dinner. The meat just falls apart on your tongue.

A Tuna Steak. I was hesitant to eat what amounted to raw fish, but each bite seemd more luxouious than the last. Sadly, the quality of that first meal of this type has yet to be replicated.

Lastly, Tortilla Soup made by my buddy's wife. I had to stop eating it halfway through because it was unsettling how delicous it was. The knowlege that I'd possibly never again have anything else quite so wonderful to eat actually unsettled me to the point I had to excuse myself for a minute.

Possibly the best thing I've ever eaten was a snack I'm not allowed to make any more- a bagel (fried) with bacon (fried) and cream cheese. The quantity of fat that went into it was something to behold, and in fact broke the extractor fan in the kitchen at the time. It's also the reason I'm not allowed to cook it any more, both for the sake of the kitchen and my arteries. I only made it twice, but it was delicious.

From a more fine dining approach, at a London restaurant (Arbutus, if anyone knows it) I had pig's head terrine followed by meatballs, and they were both utterly fantastic.

I've had quite a lot of good food in my time, though.

There are lots of tasty things, maybe I should categorize?
Thing I Eat Regularly: Bacon. I love Bacon. Better if its traditionally smoked.
American: Either real BBQ or really good beef (it has to be good, grass fed beef) or game meat. I like meat, but not the fattened up grain fed kind.
Southeast Asian: Definitely a good Pad Thai.
Japanese: Hard to say, but I love Sushi and Sashimi. I like fish even more than land meat. Has to be real Sushi though, California Rolls aren't bad but the real stuff is the best. A good Spicy Tuna Roll or a simple roll with fresh fish on top and some soy sauce.
Chinese: Lots of stuff here, I love Stir Fry the best though. Lots of different kinds, but a simple Stir Fry with Shrimp, Chicken, Pork, Veggies, and Rice with a brown sauce is delicious.
South Asian/Indian: I forget what it was called, but it had goat and a delicious sauce and was one of the best things I ever ate. I need to try more Indian.
Greek: Gyros with Lamb are good. I like Lamb.
British: Fish and Chips. Pretty much the only good thing they have.
Mexican: My Grandmothers husband is Mexican and used to make these tacos that were absolutely delicious. Nothing like the crap at Taco Bell.
Italian: Pasta with a white, cream based sauce with Pancetta and Parmesan for flavoring and some Shrimp. Barring that a simple Fettuccine Alfredo with Shrimp is good, but that's not real home made Italian.
French: Seafood Bisque.
German/Polish: A variety of Home Made Sausage.
Other Nordic/Germanic: Herring, either in a sauce or pickled.
Other: Chicken Nuggets. It's the only thing I can stand if for some reason I go to a fast food restaurant.

Overall: Seafood, particularly Shrimp and (when I can afford it) Lobster. Seafood is simply the most delicious thing on earth.

And Finally...
The Most Delicious Dish I Have Ever Had: Cheese stuffed pasta in a spicy cayenne cream sauce with pancetta, parmesan and romano, some shrimp, and some broccoli, peppers, and tomato. It was awesome.

@Pika: Yay for Naan! I love that stuff too!

Whenever I visit my Grammy's house in the Midwest US, we take a trip to the farmer's market. They have some of the best corn, tomatoes, and steak in that area of the country.


I also really like Japanese-style sushi, which never has egg in it. I am allergic to egg, and Americans like adding fake crab (which is made with egg), or sometimes a fancy mayonaise-based sauce (Which is made with egg).


A movie-theatre in my town brews their own Root beer. BEST SOFT-DRINK IN THE WORLD.

But my dietary staple is definitely Adam's brand organic salted crunchy peanut butter (Adam's is a subdivision of Smuckers) on locally baked bread.
