Recommended Posts

Sorry Peeps but i'm hungry as f%$k so i figured i'd see what yall favorite foods are, and if you have a favorite joint to get from...

1-Toro Tuna- The belly of the Tuna Fish...if you aint tried it u aint lived..tough to get and $$$

3-Shanghai Style Pork Dumplings...mystery bags...

4-Hercules (Chicken Dish)- The Pump- NYC

5-Chicken Enchilada- Holy Gucamole - Santa Monica

6-Buffalo Wings...anywhere the brew is good

1. SMOKED MEAT SANDWICHES from schwartz's deli in montreal. altho, the hat makes a good pastrami sandwich too.

2. RAMEN from shinsen gumi hakata ramen in torrance, california.

3. HOT DOGS from top dog in san fran. 2nd place, gray's papaya in nyc.

4. KOREAN BBQ late night specials after 10pm in markham/toronto. all you can eat for $8.99 CDN. can't beat that. hodori in k-town cali comes 2nd place.

5. CUBAN CHICKEN SANDWICHES from this small cuban joint in edgewater, nj. so unhealthy but the bomb.

I only go local (whereever I am) icon_smile_wink.gif

1. Nasi Kandar from one of the hawker food stalls in Penang, Malaysia

2. Feijao Preto or Feijado preferrably prepared by Brazilian grandmum

3. Shoarma from Ben Cohen's in Amsterdam - still a classic! Say hello to Adam Curry

4. Massaman Kari Kai anywhere in Thailand, but the more south you go, the tastier it gets

5. Hot Chicken Sandwich from Cantarel in Amsterdam - crappy place, great sandwich

since living in seoul i have become a conneseur and my tastes for it are very picky BUT i did find a great spot in NYC! on 32nd after 5th ave? i think it's called Wine Bar, has a crazy white front entrance, very modern looking. unfortnatly the prices have been raised like 3 times since i started going and i can't really afford it anymore. Thier speciality is a wine soaked Song-gyop-Sol.. but the marinated Kalbi is muce much better.


the best ever was a walnut/ brownsugar i had in china (go figure) but the ones from Dumpling House on Eldridge can't be beat - + the seseme pancake kiss ass 2.


anywhere in NYC. i try to go someplace different every time but i usually end up walking across the street from my Apt.

Portugese food.

Yum, lobster and pieya?! um fortunatetly for teh city dwelers i had this in NJ at Don Pepe's. Da Bomb!

Rasberry cheese croisant -

Au Bon Pain. aaaahh summer. Iced coffee and RCC from Au Bon PAin = heaven

Bomboa in Boston.

anything on the menu is awsome. right around the corner from hard rock cafe? in the alley way.

mmmmmm. time to eat.

wish i lived in the us, seen ur delis and man ur breakfasts are good, weird lookin sausages though but id prefer to live anywhere else food wise to be honest, what we got in old blighty(uk) is fish and chips, shepherds pie and fry ups, anything foreign and it means curry or chinese unless u wanna spend some serious wedge or live in a big city, but I have had some good chinese though but any sea food, my mums cooking, she's a chef(roast lamb, seriously good)or my nigerian housemates cooking, the fool throws every spice and herb ever grown into a dish but it still tastes great.

oh man ive eaten too much good food in my life...here are some places that stick out at the moment

ethiopian food - blue nile, columbus, oh. who knew there was anything good in ohio...but this is the best ethiopian restaurant ive ever been to, beats anything ive had in ny, boston, or la. collard greens and cabbage = win

sushi - tsukiji at 6am is hard to beat. since that experience i havent had any desire to eat sushi in north america

thai - sawaddee, providence ri. tiny place, awesome people, food is incredible. massaman curry...oh and still the best tom yum goong ive had in america...

burrito - gordito burrito, providence ri. damn i love this place. burritos also seem to be excellent in most places in southern california.

ecuadorian - there was this place across the street from the holiday inn express in silverlake la that was so bomb. ceviche de camarones...pitcher of sangria...that was a nice afternoon.

indian - my mother's cooking is seriously better than any indian restaurant food ive had in america...and i prepare a mean fish curry myself.

ramen - best i ever had was some chashu ramen in nagasaki, i dont remember the name of the spot (too drunk) but i certainly do remember the ramen...and the gasoline-like shochu that was served with it...i dont even like pork but damn that shit was epic

kaiten-zushi - i totally miss that place on omotesando in harajuku down the street from dior...

bakery/patisserie (japan) - japanese preferences in bread are weird, it seems they prefer the bread to be a little wet/soggy. but my favorite is pan no mimi in kyoto...so ill that apparently a manga was based on them or something...incredible croissants.
