Oh my God, I love Indian tacos on fry bread (I generally don't like fry bread on its own, though)!

I tend to travel alone and I've had memorable meals in different places but I don't try to judge the "best". I remember a particularly good Reuben Sandwich in Boulder Colorado; a supper in Old Town in Albuquerque; a very good meal in an Amtrak dining car heading east across the Great Plains; several great dinners in Bra and Perugia (Italy); I have never had a bad meal in Santa Fe and some are quite memorable; and there's a late-night supper in Cusco that I will always remember. The place and the company help make a meal memorable almost as much as the food.

Maybe I'm easily impressed but I think a good hot dog at the ballpark when your team is winning in an important game can be the best meal you might have all year.

Cape Malay dinners (various including Bobotie), Noon Gun (now closed, alas) in Cape Town
Silver salmon that I had caught a couple of hours earlier, near Skilak Lake, Alaska
Fesenjan (Persian duck-walnut-pomegranate stew) in Isfahan, Iran.
Beignets at Cafe du Monde, New Orleans. Yep, a cliche. Doesn't matter.
A lemon tart at Hotel La Couleuvrine in Sarlat, France. O. M. G.
Definitely the beignets at Cafe du Monde. Heavenly bites that literally melt in your mouth

When I think of the most memorable meal, a bar in Eagle River, AK comes to mind. In the fall, when the fishermen were back in town, they served up a welcome home fish fry.

Beer battered halibut. Grilled socket salmon. Huge tubs of coleslaw and the bestpotato salad I've ever eaten.

Not sure if it was the food or the wild men, but it was sure a good time.
