The BEST thing I ever at is_____________________ at ___________________________.
The best thing I ever ate was the hand-rolled gnocchi at Spiaggia. I've had gnocchi many times before and had an expectation of how it would taste at Spiaggia. I was absolutely blown away-- it was like eating savory clouds in a creamy light sauce with truffle shavings.
My meal at Spiaggia was the most memorable one of my life, but I think the gnocchi was particularly special because I didn't expect something so simple to be so spectacular.
A runner-up would be the sweetbreads at the Publican. Another simple preparation that was extraordinary and memorable for me.
