My Favorite Restaurants in My Favorite Cities
Inspired by @jameshiga It should also be noted that I have the taste palate of an 8 year old.
- •London - Red FortThere is a dessert item called a "Funky Pie." Need I say more? Hands down the best Indian food in London.
- •Tokyo - TonkiThe 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.
- •New Delhi - The Spice RouteChinese, 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.
- •Kyoto - YoshikawaWhat 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.
- •Paris - La Bocca Della VeritaThe Jon & Vinny's of Paris (I hate French food.)
- •Hong Kong - Crystal JadeThere'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.
- •Portland - AndinaI 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.
- •Los Angeles - Pacific Dining Car (2am only)
- •Boston - The Paramount CafeTough 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.
- •San Francisco - Yank SingLast 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.
- •Palm Springs - Norma'sLet'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.
