Fantasy World Wide Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

burlgurl Nov 4, 2008 06:56 PM

I got thinking after reading Worlds Best Products post on what and WHERE I would like to eat for one day, anywhere in the world.
I realized my tastes would be fairly basic and simple...
Breakfast: Montreal, bagel and coffee
Lunch: Rome, margherita pizza
Dinner: Japan, sushi dinner
Dessert: Belgium, for a simple piece of milk chocolate

any other dream day menus??

        Oh, this is a tough one! So many possibilities! Ok, this is how I'm feeling this question NOW. You ask me an hour later, the answer will probably change.

        Lunch: Babi guling in Ubud, Bali
        Dinner: Tasting menu at Pierre Gagnaire in Paris

                        They have a few locations now, one on the main street in Emmaus that is close to my old house, and one on Hamilton and 17th? 12th?

                        Found the website: http://www.wallys-deli.com/

                        I like the Squealer, but they're home cooked roast beef is great too.

            in keeping with my actual habit of eating something like 7-8 times a day, but imagining unlimited stomach capacity:

            * early a.m. breakfast of fresh-off-the-boat sashimi at a hole in the wall restaurant right outside of the tsukiji fish market (on my dream day, i'd be fluent in japanese and able to order the best cuts of the morning :)
            * later a.m. breakfast of pho in vietnam
            * lunch of stingray sambal and hainanese chicken rice in singapore (or maybe hainan -- i've never been)
            * early afternoon snack of dosa and south indian coffee in mysore
            * late afternoon snack of mezes in turkey
            * dinner of duck confit cassoulet in toulouse (the low brau kind where everything's cooked together)
            * evening snack of different ceviche variations in peru and mexico
            * dessert of green tea mousse, fresh custard apples, perfectly ripe mangosteen and bai hao yinzhen tea at a tea house in taiwan

                ha, it's only one-uppance if i could actually eat all that. i'm not familiar with the restaurants you name, but the food sure sounds good! (maybe a good excuse for a road trip while gas prices are still sorta low. :)

                  Go enter the New Mexico Chile Civil War. The Southern Hatch Green vs The Northern Chimayo Red. Great skiing at Taos. Sante Fe (Charleston, Savvannah, and beautiful Quebec too.)is one of the most beautiful colonial cities in North America.
                  Gee, I wonder why there are no chains on this thread?
