So there hasn't been a thread in a while for Des Moines/Iowa and I thought I'd try something different.

Not looking for "Best Itallian food or "Best chinese food" More of a specific thread. I'll post some examples. Obviously this is opinion but it'd be nice to see what peoples opinions of the best specific food item in the area. Chicken wings, egg rolls, cheesecake, whatever you can think of. You don't have to use any of my examples, just whatever you can think of.

Best Corned Beef Hash - The Library
Best BBQ Dish - Burnt Ends @ Smokey D's (There is NO Competition here IMO)
Best Place to take a first date - Centro bar area (Tables aren't stacked so close as in dining room. Not very loud, large glass windows offer people watching, etc)
Best Pizza - Centro (Their pizzas aren't original like Gusto or Fongs but you can't beat the brick oven pizza)
Best Spicy Dish - Lamb Vindaloo from Kurry Xpress (Yes... Yes I know. It's not a very high end place but the Lamb Vindaloo is blazin' hot. The hottest dish I've ever had in the area.)
Best Chicken Wings - Garlic Parmesan from Jethros
Best Pho - A dong (Not much of a surprise, I know)
Best Seafood dish - Beer battered lobster @ Jessie's Embers

Centro
Amaravati Indian Cuisine
