What Are The Best Dishes In The Whole World ?

I am trying to figure out the best dishes in the world, icons, ones so good that when you get off the plane, that's where you head first.

They can be high or low, from Goose Island hand-crafted root beer or egg creams from Gem Spa on St Marks (if they still make 'em) to the single best dish in the world - Black Pepper Crab at East Coast Seafood in Singapore or the paddle-roasted barbequed baby pig in Chang Mai or the beignets at Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans.

Got suggestions ?
