I definitely can't stand the hard taco shell on its own, but thought taco bell was onto something when they introduced the gordita crunch. Also, I do love me some soft tacos with a lightly toasted exterior
I agree with the above - what about the apple sidra??
salad greens with tomatoes and cucumbers, topped with sesame ginger dressing, side of soba noodles with a splash of sauce, along with some fruit and cottage cheese
All interesting responses! Personally, I don't mind sharing recipes that have worked out well for me - I consider it good karma, especially since ones of the reasons why I've been able to progressively improve my cooking skills is from using recipes that others have freely shared, and experimenting with them to see how flavors and textures can be changed to suit my taste.
I can see how some people might want to keep a few secret recipes - ones in the family, or ones that you personally developed that took a lot of time to perfect - but witholding recipe after recipe? That's being a bit stingy. Besides, with everything that's available on the Internet and in cookbooks, it's only a matter of time before somebody who's determined to make the dish will figure out the way.
I'm surprised no one mentioned Eat n Park cookies
a mix of the sweet and savory - there has to be at least one thing that goes with maple syrup: pancakes/waffles/french toast with bacon/sausage and eggs
Going to Taiwan with a tour group and having delicious fatty pork belly served at several meals
Ribeye ...but most of the time I'm just happy to have steak
Haribo gummy frogs!!!
The thin crust pizza from Oregano's in Arizona. Lucci's pizza in Pittsburgh. The margherita at Bertucci's is pretty good too.
rocky road fudge!
War and Peas.
Food is serious business
Cake from an Asian bakery -- white cake with slices of fruit sandwiched in between, topped with a very light whipped cream and more fruit!!
Some of my favorite Boston area eats:
Zoe's - best authentic Chinese food in Somerville MA
Punjabi Dhaba - great Indian grub in Cambridge MA (cheap, too!)
East Coast Grill - tasty seafood also in Cambridge MA
Not exactly world class dining, but if there's room for dessert, Christina's Ice Cream has quite the assortment of traditional and offbeat flavors - haven't found one that I didn't like yet
In Phoenix, Saigon (for Vietnamese), Cornish Pasty (for some Cornish Pasty), and Angel Sweet (for gelato). Also, can't resist a bit of In-n-Out, for the Neopolitan shake, if not for the burgers & fries
grabbing aloe yogurts from the QQ (99 yen) store at the end of the day in Japan, often intending for them to last the week, but only to finish them in a couple days
chinatown dim sum
I practically grew up on French's Honey mustard, and later became partial to Deli Mustards - Grey Poupon's always been good to me
Inglehoffer's another brand that I've tried and liked
Lakeside BBQ on July 4th: Asian style, complete with yams, fish, and kebabs
Egg custard tart from dim sum
Fuddrucker's burgers - but also, burgers topped with pepper jack cheese and a heaping dollop of guacamole
How bout a reuben
