Jason's Desert Island Food: "The sesame peanut noodles from Lulu's in Evanston, Ill. I grew up going to this place all the time, and this was my absolute favorite dish. It's the perfect balance of sweet, salty, spicy, sour, rich, peanutty—all my favorite flavors. It's not the single best food I've ever had, but I could eat it and nothing but it for the rest of my life."
