World's best dishes & where you can find them

yosemite44 | Apr 28, 2011 11:46 PM


There are loeads of topics on chow about favorites,

Best foods in NY: (78x) and (153x). There there is even a separate section dedicated to "best foods" on the NYC boards.

Best world cities for food:

Best countries to live in for food: (131x)

I also found one thread about favorite foods, but this was very generic about home-made dishes or general types of foods (e.g. pizza).

What I haven't discovered yet is a "best foods in the world" thread - with focus on specific food at specific places.
