    I'm not a "foodie". Mostly I eat because my stomach complains if I don't. I like food that tastes good as much as the next guy, and I've had some meals that were better than others, but, I'm a bottom liner.
    I've found that no matter how good it was or how much you paid for it, bottom line, and, usually, at the end of the day it ends up in the same place. One flush, usually, and it's gone. :cool:

    Makes me wonder: does this fancy restaurant have WD-40 in their toilets?

    This is from Martin Berasategui, a Spanish restaurant in at #2. Hey, I think I see a piece of food in there:)

    My two favourites, therefore my best restaurants in the world are:

    The 100-years Restaurant in Budapest (http://www.szazevesetterem.hu/eng/about/) and;

    The Last Appeal or Zur Letzten Instanz in Berlin. (https://zurletzteninstanz.com/en/.

    Napoleon apparently dine here.

    Both serve excellent and inexpensive, traditional (Hungarian and German respectively) food and I would highly recommend both.

    The best pizza I’ve ever had was in Prague and the best steak was in Amsterdam.

    Some of the worst Chinese food was in China and I’ve eaten crocodile in Singapore.

    How any restaurant could be regarded as the best in the world puzzles me as good food is so subjective and tastes and palettes vary considerably.

    I’ve eaten at some high end, expensive restaurants run by internationally renown chefs and stopped for a burger on the way home and eaten at simple ‘home cooking’ cafés and rated their food highly!

    Best restaurant in the world? Nah, I don’t buy that.

    :) Peter

    I've eaten at some high-falutin' places, but nothing that would make any of those ''best in the world'' lists. I guess I've led a deprived life:cry:

    My personal favorite is The Cracked Conch Cafe on Marathon Key. They fry seafood just right - extremely hot and fast. I think they have some secret for heating peanut oil to 500 degrees without exploding:eek:

    I can still beat them at hushpuppies, though:)

    Real Spanish restaurants...not Mexican...are fantastic, but I guess it depends from what part of Spain. The stuff I adored in NYC (both places long closed) was I guess closer to Portuguese, heavy on the seafood.

    We have nothing like it in my part of South Florida. Maybe in Miami, a half hour and more south of me, but it's ridiculous $$$.

    The Texas Taco in Patterson NY, but it closed up a few years ago. You missed your chance. Best burritos, fiesta pups, guacamole, tacos and atmosphere. The world has sucked since Rosemary closed shop.

    We had good music too when I worked there. Everything from Buddy Holly to Crazy Horse at the Texas Taco. Movie stars and biker clubs would show up for lunch. Did I mention good tacos?

    I'll be visiting my daughter in Kendall (Miami) this month. Perhaps I'll check out one of your suggestions.

    I find haute cuisine to be just as important as haute couture. That is, not at all.

    ...what is "fiesta pup", please? I don't think I've encountered such a thing in Texas (at least by that name), but maybe I just need to learn something new?

    Any number of local restaurant's in and around Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

    Italian, Greek, Mexican, Asian, Pizza (a million of em), Bar-food, Middle Eastern, Sub shop's (a million of em) and, yes...

    Pennsylvania Dutch/German Restaurant's.

    Classic Dutch meat and potato-noodle (i.e., chicken pot-pie) places of which many are Smorgasbord style. Not necessarily healthy stuff or atmospheric interiors, but peeps come from many miles away to Lancaster County...

    TO EAT!

    It's not very expensive and after you're finished...

    YOU'RE DEFINITELY NOT HUNGRY!
