    Asterisk (*) indicates I've had the dish.
    Plus (+) indicates I've been to the restaurant.

    Note: The reason some dishes are marked * without being marked + is because of Tacolandia. I've had the listed dishes from Chichen Itza and Rocio's there. Coni and MexiCali were there too, but I didn't mark them with a +.

      1. re: Thor123

        You had the pork chop at Salt's Cure!

        1. re: Ciao Bob

          My Bad - poor reading skills!

          1. re: Ciao Bob

            It does look like he's had it. He copied and pasted my asterisks.

            1. re: PeterCC

              I have. Bob and I posted on it a few days back.

      2. re: PeterCC

        36. Not the biggest fan of the list in general though - felt like they were running out of steam in the middle and started to think of stuff on the fly.

        1. re: PeterCC

          Only 6 for me. Like schrutefarms, I don't eat any seafood, so that eliminates a good chunk of the list. I'm also not a big fan of most "non-mainstream" meats, so there are a number of other items that will never be on my plate (88, 39, 5).

          Corollary question: who has NOT had a Dodger dog (other than due to your dietary restrictions - vegetarian, kosher, etc.)?

          1. re: cookie monster

            Whoo hoo! Count me as a 6--I totally missed the Dodger Dog!

            1. re: cookie monster

              i've never had a dodger dog.

              But like everyone else, I have been to more of these places, but just not had the dishes listed.

            3. 14

              1. 100 - 39 = 61

                Many dessert/pastries/breakfast items that I do not care for are in the 39 no's. But there are are few "real dishes," that I would want to try but have not gotten to yet:
                Europane Egg Salad, Mole de Los Dios, Baby Goat T-Bone, Koobedeh, Sicilian Pizza @ pizzanista (is it any good?), Salsa de Chorizo Con Cesina, Island Combo @ TiGeorge.

                Also a few I will NEVER try - Lobster Thermador, Smoked Salmon with Mango, Truffle-Honey Fried chicken.

                1. re: Ciao Bob

                  After my last experience with the Truffle Honey Fried Chicken at Craig's I would never eat that dish anywhere!

                2. 21 with 79 still to go.

                  1. Hmm. Only 5. But I don't eat seafood (ANY seafood) so that's probably more than half the list right there.
