Dish you love, but don't really know what's in it

A lot of times with prepared foods even though we don't necessarily know every ingredient in a dish - we have a fair idea of what's in there without an ingredient list. But are there foods out there, from a store, deli, restaurant that you love but other than maybe one or two ingredients have no clue what it's made of?

There's a small store near near an old apartment of mine in Jerusalem that sold a dish that's name is roughly "eggplant chopped liver style". It's a smooth spread, pretty dark in color. Other than eggplant, I know there's black pepper - but beyond that I really have no clue. At this point I've gone so long without asking that I kind of enjoy the complete ignorance.

Are there other mystery dishes that people love but are really in the dark about a lot of the ingredients? Or do other people take more care to find out what's in their food than me.....
