On occasion, I have a meal so pleasing to my palette that I just can't get it out of my mind.  So I fantasize about it.  In order to qualify, it must be a complete meal, not just any old food item.  Otherwise you'd be hearing about Italian gelato (which, lets face it, I could make a meal out of), creamed spinach from Benedict's, a very special hot salsa from Freebird, and a variety of other "little" things.

But, the following places are restuarants I wish I had the budget to fly to on a weekly basis and consume JUST THIS.

Foods I Still Fantasize About

  • Grilled Octopus and Tzatziki at Zorba's, Athens, Greece
  • Supreme Pizza, hold the sausage, add black olives, Vitale's Sports Bar, Grand Rapids, MI
  • Calamari Salad from Il Duo, Phnom Penh, Cambodia (and maybe the cannoli for dessert)
  • A big ole pot of Gramma's Mussels at Morel's in Beijing, China
  • Chicken on a stick and corn on the cob from street vendors in Bangkok, Thailand
  • HUGE grilled scallops (think saucer size) from Andy's Place in Tokyo, Japan
  • Red Snapper done on the grill, on the beach, in Jimbaran, Bali
  • Scallops and Broccoli from Hong Kee restaurant, Chung Chau Island, Hong Kong
  • Fresh Mussels served in pepper sauce from The Fig Tree in Rome, Italy
  • 2 Big Fat Porkchops with asian coleslaw and garlic mashed potatoes from the Seoul Pub in Itaewon, Korea
  • Steak Night at the Whitehall.  A large fillet for two done medium rare, drenched in a mustard cream sauce, served on a hot skillet, accompanied by a lovely salad, delicious brushetta, chicken wings (!), hashbrown potatoes and a fresh vegetable, topped off with Mounds dessert - for free, in Tel Aviv, Israel
