    Too much to list, but a couple months ago I had this venison steak at a local fancy restaurant that was unbelievable.

    I’d go for that right about now.

    My top ten, in no particular order after the first two:

    - Pan-seared Antarctic Toothfish (often sold as "Chilean Sea Bass") with sauteed vegetables and whipped potatoes. This is my absolute favorite dish.

    - The NY Strip Au Poive at Morton's Steakhouse, crusted in toasted peppercorns. My second-favorite dish.

    - Cheesesteaks and waffle fries from Abner's in West Philadelphia.

    - The Joe, Dick, & Stanley from Primanti Brothers

    - The Reuben at Carnegie Deli, NYC (no longer open). Any proper Reuben should be open-face.

    - Giordano's stuffed pizza in Chicago

    - Detroit pan pizza (any place reputable)

    - The Schweinshaxe (roasted pork shank) at the Hofbrauhaus in Pittsburgh

    - Barbeque. Any. My favorite is Kansas City ribs, but I have an insatiable appetite for, pretty much, this entire category of food!

    - Natural skin franks topped with mustard and Greek sauce (chili made with Greek spices). They have to be beef-&-pork blend franks, though-- I can't stand all-beef franks.

    Anything Thai BUT you have to get the real Thai flavours in Thailand.

    I think that where you eat is as important as what it is. Case in point, seafood always tastes better when you have an ocean view. Anything you make while camping tastes better than your home kitchen. These are my favorites in no particular order:

    1. Maine Lobster Roll. Any seaside shack on the Maine coast is fine.
    2. Horseshoe Sandwich in Springfield Illinois. I can't remember what "the place" was but I'm sure someone knows. Only eat about half of what you consider the appropriate amout if you plan on doing anything but sleeping.
    3.Kentucky hot brown...in Kentucky.
    4.Philly Cheese Steak from Michaels Deli in King of Prussia.
    5.Hot chicken at Prince's in Nashville. (Hattie B's is where the tourists go but it's good too)
    6.Jojo's from almost any convenience store in Mississippi. (You want em after they've sat so get the oldest ones between 2 and 3 PM)
    7. Halibut Cheeks in Anchorage.
    8. Belly clams in Rhode Island
    9. Oyster PO boy. Baton Rouge or New Orleans. (And possibly anywhere in the state)
    10. Dry ribs in Memphis.(Each of our 500 BBQ restaurants do things differently and if you ask 10 locals, you'll get 10 different answers) However, if you're worried about your car getting stolen while you're eating, you're probably at a good BBQ joint.

    When I think about this topic, it inevitably pulls me to the different countries I've visited and the street food I've eaten. There's something about being in a foreign land and diving into the street life.

    Yes.

    I missed out on a couple of the famous NYC delis that closed in the last few years, but I've had pastrami at many other delis around the country that are thrown out as candidates for "the best" and nothing I've yet tried was even in the same league as Schwartz's.

    I don't know many people that know Boudin outside of Louisiana! Love it!

    I'd have to add my grandmother's crawfish etouffee and my great grandmother's dirty rice, passed down to my mother.

    Mom’s spaghetti

    Roscoe’s chicken and waffles in L.A.

    Cuban style Roast pork, extra garlic sauce, from Versailles .... again in L.A.

    Baked scallop hand roll sushi

    Rib eye steak done my way... med rare, spicy sesame oil on one side, olive on the other dressed with s&p and furikake with some garlic spears stuffed into it.

    My wife’s sweet kettle corn

    Mint chocolate chip ice cream with caramel sauce

    Not a single item, but a meal at a Brazilian steak house in Vegas eaten decades ago... restaurant no longer exists.

    Beef ribs from Diamond’s ribs in the San Fernando valley... again long closed... but the best I ever had.

    Fried broccoli from a local restaurant here in San Diego. Not breaded.. just dipped into a pan of hot oil til the heads are browned. It takes on a nutty flavor that kicks.

    I can only come up with one ( now) and that is my #1
    Cold water!

    - don't even know if it qualifies but I have always been crazy about the taste and sensation of cold water

    *It's almost like I can't live without it!

    Yea man! That’s awesome. Don’t lose those old traditions. I’ve been thinking of making my own boudin lately. Nothing wrong with some boudin and gratons for breakfast. ;)

    If you make some let me know how it turns out! Never tried making my own. I live in OK now and you can't buy boudin anywhere.
