    A huge-ass sandwich called the Club Dear (triple decker turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato) at Carnegie Deli in New York
    Duck breast strips with honey, apple and pasta at Cafe Kor in Budapest. Sounds bizarre but it was lush.
    Red snapper at Fog Harbor in San Francisco. I'm not normally a big fish eater but this was delicious! So fresh and yummy.
    Fettucine Alfredo at Alfredo's in Epcot Florida. So so simple but done perfectly.
    Beignets and cafe au lait at Cafe du Monde, New Orleans - who doesn't love warm sugary doughnutty goodness with coffee?!

    Shikh Kebabs fresh off the grill in Bangladesh were fantastic. The meat melted in my mouth in a burst of flavours. You cannot get the type I had there in the UK, which is sad . Also, there's something called a Pani Puri as seen below which I also had in Bangladesh which was just awesome. The blend of textures and flavours in the mouth makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

    I know this is rather contradictory, but the best Indian meal I've ever had was in Halkidiki in Greece.

    I've also eaten at Raffles Hotel and in the revolving 'Top of the M', both in Singapore. Exquisite food there.

    And you can't beat American food really... Australian Outback to be more precise. <3
    The best Turkish food I've ever had was from a Turkish cafe in Auckland A delicious Turkish pizza and some absolutely heavenly baklava. Every baklava I've had since has simply paled in comparison...

    I've had a Singapore Sling at the Raffles, and some of the monkey nuts The meals were out of our price range though.

    Ahhh, the Australian Outback - the memories - I remember buying some kangaroo steak in Katherine and then driving for 100s of kilometres down the Stuart Highway to Tennant Creek, setting up camp for the night and cooking the steaks with chopped onions, before falling asleep under the stars to the sound of flying foxes and nocturnal frogs... The camel jerky was lovely too. What sort of food did you have in the Outback?

    Yes, Raffles was excessively expensive but my parents were like "what the hell?!" which suited me just fine.

    I was actually talking about the restaurant Australian Outback (it's an American chain). I'm sad to say that I've never been to Australia. Sounds wonderful though.

    Oh I see Well, I definitely recommend some kangaroo steak if you do make it to Australia!

    That sounds heavenly.

    Lokma are dough balls fried in syrup. Pretty simple, but delicious.
    And as for Koupes, it's more of a snack than a meal, and not exclusive to Cyprus, but it's essentially A ground and fried bulgur wheat casing around minced meat, onions and parsely. Probably haven't explained it that well but eaten hot or cold with lemon squeezed on them, they are a taste sensation.

    Ah we call them Kibbeh around here!
    I agree, so good! I love to dip them in tzatziki.
    Gozleme too, is great, it's like a stuffed parata. I like the spinach and feta cheese-yum!

    Also, nothing can beat authentic shish taouk sandwiches.

    In the Italian district of San Diego I had the most delicious seafood spaghetti dish known to man. Then for dessert we got to pick a cake from the bakery owned by the restaurant. It was lots of layers of puff pastry with cream and caramel and banana on top. *drool*

    Everything I ate in Rome <3 everything was just so much better than here. And also this is a bit odd, but when we went to Disneyland Paris a few years back, the hotel had the most amazing breakfast ever. Two rooms devoted to just tables of food :O It was amazing, I could have spend all day there.
