best of 2009 and biggest disappointment

the best foods you remember this year.
doesn't have to necessarily be a new dish that came out this year.

chicken makhani-Delhi Heights (jackson heights)
warm maple butter-clinton street baking
pumpkin pie-Birdbath Build a Green Bakery
chocolate chip walnut cookie-levain
creamed corn with pancetta-striphouse
vietnamese coffee and ovaltine ice cream-Spot
brussel sprout pizza-Motorino
super heebster sandwich-Russ and Daughters
creme brulee donut-donut plant
ginger cupcake-two little red hens
torrone gelato-La Tulipe Desserts (Mount Kisco, Westchester)
shake stack-shake shack
bread pudding (go home and reheat it)-sullivan street bakery

my biggest disappointment this year was momofuku milk bar
I spent 30 dollars on various desserts there. None of them were horrible but they were all just way too sweet (and I have a huge sweet tooth!). I really expected better
