One Day of Dining in Your City

Perilagu Khan | Jul 12, 2012 10:29 AM

The task is simple. A generic friend or relative who has never been to your city is stopping over for a one-day visit and wants to experience the best breakfast, lunch and dinner your burg has to offer. Where do you take him? What do you suggest he orders?

Lubbock, Texas:

Breakfast--Two breakfast burritos from the Burrito Tower. One with potatoes, ham and cheese, and the other with bacon, ham and cheese. All will be accompanied by their astonishing chile verde (hot sauce, not stew), black coffee and orange juice.

Lunch--Carnitas, tacos and margaritas at Cancun. When the waiter brings chips and salsa I'll put in a special request for their habanero sauce which is sheer murder.

Dinner--Chicken 65, rasam and spinach pakoras at Maharaja. We'll also drink a bottle of their Chateau St. Jean chardonnay. A pity they don't serve kulfi, although we'd probably be too full to eat any.
