I bumbled into a food meme while surfing LJ.

Top 50 Things Everyone Should Try A Bite Of In Their Lifetime

Bold the ones you've eaten. Italicize the ones you dislike.

01. Alligator -- I found it a bit rubbery, but the taste was OK
02. American diner breakfast
03. Australian meat pie
04. Barbecue
05. Barramundi
06. Burgers
07. Caviar
08. Cheesecake -- I live near a cheesecake factory :)
09. Chinese food
10. Chocolate
11. Clam chowder (Manhattan style) -- I prefer New England style, though
12. Cornish Pasty
13. Crab
14. Cream tea
15. Curry
16. Durian fruit
17. Fresh fish -- one of my favorite Chinese restaurants lets you pick out the fish you want to eat from their aquarium. A few minutes later you're munching on it. Fish doesn't get much fresher than that!!
18. Greek food
19. Guinea pig -- had this when I went to Peru, in the city of Cuzco
20. Haggis -- a favorite of mine!! Bobbie Burns birthday parties wouldn't be proper celebrations without it!!! Plus I'm part Scot -- liking haggis comes with the gene pool ;)
21. Ice cream
22. Jerk chicken/pork
23. Kangaroo
24. Kebab
25. Lamb Kebab
26. Lobster
27. Mango
28. Mexican food -- NOT Tex-Mex!! The real deal! One of the advantages of living in Spanish Harlem was getting to eat real Mexican food, like chicken with mole sauce
29. Moreton Bay Bugs
30. Mussels
31. Octopus -- one of my favorite dishes is arroz con pulpo in su tinta :)
32. Oysters
33. Paella
34. Pancakes
35. Pasta
36. Pizza
37. Prawns
38. Reindeer
39. Ribs
40. Roast beef
41. Salmon
42. Sandwiches
43. Scallops
44. Shark -- a favorite fish of mine -- mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm . . .
45. Squid
46. Steak
47. Sushi
48. Tapas
49. Thai food
50. Venison -- one of my cousins was a hunter & had his own hunting grounds in upstate NY

One of the great things about living in New York is all the restaurants featuring the best of the world's cuisines. I also think that one of the best parts of traveling is eating foods that you've never had before -- you never know when you'll bumble into a new favorite food. I did that with dragonfruit when I was in Saigon -- not easy to find here though, even in Asian marketplaces. :(

Yeah, I found alligator rather rubbery too. And I definitely agree with you on the NYC restaurant goodness. The grocery stores, or rather the area delis, are a big plus too. The number of times I've seen something, not known what it was, and decided to try it anyway... More often than not it works just fine, although it took me an embarrassing number of tries to figure out how to open a coconut, especially when I dropped it on my foot! (This involved a couple of mis-placed hammer blows and a very scared cat. No cats were harmed in the process!)
