Inspired by @jameshiga It should also be noted that I have the taste palate of an 8 year old.
  1. London - Red Fort
    54ca19d6 cffc 460f bc8e ba0492c427d9
    There is a dessert item called a "Funky Pie." Need I say more? Hands down the best Indian food in London.
  2. Tokyo - Tonki
    39385870 3188 4f96 a71a dae99e454221
    The Apple Pan of Tokyo, except instead of burgers they make a deep fried pork cutlet. This is me there for the 3rd time in one week.
  3. New Delhi - The Spice Route
    2c0ac2c2 8d4a 4007 94e1 68cdcf8e63e5
    Chinese, Thai, Indian fusion. Need I say more? I loved every bite and it was easily my favorite meal in India - even more than Indian Accent. The Spice Route is also located in a beautiful hotel from the time of the Raj.
  4. Kyoto - Yoshikawa
    F5c724e2 7604 460c 98d0 beb562696f14
    What Jiro does for sushi, Yoshikawa does for Tempura. If you make nice with the chef he may give you a private tour of their garden. Prepare yourself for a 3 hour dining experience.
  5. Paris - La Bocca Della Verita
    4d02aada 7711 4c51 a0d0 1ae4e0c8fabd
    The Jon & Vinny's of Paris (I hate French food.)
  6. Hong Kong - Crystal Jade
    Ae0ae097 3cd0 4b20 8f92 74355d209e18
    There's a location in the airport, which some may see as hokey but I see it as a perfect way to enjoy a Hong Kong layover. Nothing fancy, just excellent Chinese dim sum.
  7. Portland - Andina
    E5241377 3fbd 4e13 9dd2 de35c538f604
    I am not exaggerating when I say that the passion fruit dip they bring with bread is one of the tastiest concoctions I have ever put in my mouth. I'd eat it by the gallon. Also, the quinoa crusted chicken is the bomb.
  8. Los Angeles - Pacific Dining Car (2am only)
    3dbb77c7 0c46 4675 9577 08b3d80cdd34
    Very few things in life are as enjoyable as being with friends at PDC at 2 in the morning, enjoying steak and overpriced side dishes (CC @tay @Lisha @carolinek @jonosser @shawn)
  9. Boston - The Paramount Cafe
    C36ec810 fb2b 4e6d 9323 a536a3c549e4
    Tough decision but I'm going to say this is my favorite brunch spot in Boston. Why? Because you don't expect that short order food can be so tasty, but it is. I'm all about the breakfast sandwich with bacon.
  10. San Francisco - Yank Sing
    Dead308f f8f5 48c8 bfec 1bb5de1c012f
    Last I was there I timed it: 34 seconds between my butt hitting the seat and dining on delicious dim sum. It doesn't get better than that.
  11. Palm Springs - Norma's
    52321b14 27d4 4a63 be81 4d230a9726b1
    Let's be honest: Norma's breakfast is just dessert. Getting a S'Mores Frappuccino with a cookie straw is a healthier meal. That said, no one poaches an egg as well as Norma's.
