The classic chowhound "discovery" - tell us yours!

As a newbie to this place, I am curious to hear about how people have come to discover their off-the-beaten-track "gems". Was it in your neighborhood? Did you deliberately wander the streets of an unknown neighborhhod in search of a specific cuisine? Did you call the (fill in the country here) embassy and ask the receptionist where she eats? A taxi-driver?

I am often drawn to an errand in an out-of-the-way place simply because I can eat at a new and obscure (to me anyway) restaurant. I wonder how people find their "finds".
