SF Bay Area works for me, and I happen to be from here. But I can get any kind of food here that is authentic from pretty much anywhere in the world. I'm blessed

I’ve enjoyed great BBQ brisket in Texas, pork chops & steaks in Atlanta, sushi in Tokyo, Dim Sum in Hong Kong, Portuguese cuisine in Macau, and Cuban food in Orlando & Tampa. I’d say that the Cuban food (paella and roast pork) in Florida is outstanding, it’s so hard to find here in California.

I always thought Turkey until something better came along, and nothing ever did. Usually, with the language barrier, invited into the kitchen to point to things. But in the 90's, south China food, even at simple places, was rich and abundant and delicious. Absolutely nothing like "Chinese" in America, of course.. Hungary iis in the running.

Best food (by far) is from Home! (Tho we do enjoy Asian variety for less $ than cooking your own.)
We stay in international homes and appreciate their home cooking too, as well as regional specialties.

We have many international guests who enjoy using our home kitchen to cook their own 'home cooking!' (We enjoy that too!)

We often take Salmon from home as barter material while traveling.

in USA... (2) 50# Coolers per passenger fly free on SWA

I remember the first time I had Dim Sum lunch in Hong Kong at a business lunch. Each thing off the cart was better than the last.

My favorite breakfast is a simple French hotel breakfast of a sliced baguette baked that morning from the local boulangerie with strawberry preserves, butter, and cafe au lait.

I do Gumbo for lunch any time I’m in New Orleans. I’ve tasted my way through most of the well known restaurants. I like Antoine’s the best. I’m still bummed that Katrina killed Uglesich’s. Amazing food in a total dive served on paper plates. New York has world class dining in any style cuisine but I’d put New Orleans as the best foodie place in the US.

A Nepalese restaurant in Edinburgh.
A small dish of gnocchi in Tuscany. Too much would have been cloying, a small portion left me wanting more.
Brick oven pizza in Rome.
Unidentifiable fish on a beach in Indonesia.
Bagels in NY.
Fresh sourdough in San Francisco.
Poutine in Montreal.
Blueberry pancakes over a campfire on a cold morning.
Thai food in the Tetons


Italy has the most consistently good food, with wide variety, of any area that I have been, although they have many, many mundane options as well.
