Fantasy World Wide Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
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??
Breakfast: NYC, bagel and coffee
Lunch: Vietnam, Bahn Mi
Dinner: Mom's house: Pot Roast, Mashed Potatoes, Red Cabbage and Carrots
Dessert: Vermont: Ben and Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch
Breakfast: Nashville, TN - eggs, grits, home fries, country bacon, biscuits and gravy.
Lunch: somewhere in Burgundy - escargot, tête de veau w/ sauce Gribiche, potato gratin, Beaujolais.
Dinner: Hong Kong, the seafood village - many courses of fish, shellfish, greens etc.
Dessert: somewhere in Indiana - warm persimmon pudding w/ whipped cream.
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.
Breakfast: Pho in Vietnam and Pierre Herme macarons in Paris
Lunch: Babi guling in Ubud, Bali
Dinner: Tasting menu at Pierre Gagnaire in Paris

Seeing how I eat, it'd be a bit more like this.
Real Breakfast: Perfect Apples and yogurt at home in Tokyo, Japan

Dinner: Eating dinner at the family table in PA
After clubbing snack: Ramen, gyoza and a kebab in Tokyo, Japan
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
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?

Sushi Omakase: Brothers Sushi in Woodland Hills, Ca
Dessert. Just a big ol chunk of good, black seeded watermelon, a sweet California navel, and a ripe alphonso mango. (which would be impossible to have together because of their seasons)
Dream day of eating...
