100 Foods to Eat Before You Die - Toronto/GTA Edition

dangerjno | Jan 30, 2012 09:30 PM

There is a meme going around about the 100 foods to eat before you die. After tallying my score, I got a pretty respectable 62. I showed my sister and she got a jaw-dropping 78. Needless to say, this cannot stand. I'm planning on winning the race to 100.

Below is the list of 100 foods - you can debate the list, but it is what it is (wot, no poutine?). I think Toronto is one of the few cities on the planet where you can get so many diverse items in one place.

Can we make a culinary guide to Toronto using the list as a map? Can we, Chowhound?

Post your best picks for items in the list in this thread. I'll try to keep this initial post updated as we go.
