On another post, someone mentioned that eating a dish of Gelato wouldn't be a life altering experience. Someone else mentioned that there were certain dishes that weren't worth driving very far to eat.
Maybe "life altering" is a little dramatic, but what dishes would you drive 1 hr + to eat? How about travel to another state/country to eat?
We drive to Little Saigon every couple of weeks to eat Pho or Bun Tom Thit Nuong. We drive to Alhambra to eat Dim Sum almost every weekend. I've used a trip to Santa Barbara as an excuse to eat at La Super Rica. These are dishes that are good enough to justify the time and gas spent. They are also excuses to go to neighborhoods (SGV, Little Saigon) and make a day of it.
Just curious on what other people think. I also realize that I might be a little crazy.
