Pig's Tails with Nam Pla at Craigie on Main, Cambridge, MA
I love that the crisp fried onion rings on top taste so much like Funyuns. Really grown-up Funyuns, that is.

Grilled Pata Negra Skewers, Logroño, Spain
Logroño is a mid-sized town that still embraces the true spirit of tapas: each bar serves nothing but their house specialty along with 1 euro glasses of excellent win (after all, we're on the edge of the Rioja here). One glass, a couple bites, and you're on to the next spot. Unless of course, you're stuck on the pork (we were).
