So, each distinctive region in the world seems to have it's own tastes and flavors that stand out. However, there are certain foods (and especially drinks) that are just, all over. A number of the ones mentioned, but there also others that seem to some degree to be ubiquitous everywhere. So, given the opportunity to go to one city in the world in order to taste these products, and just sort of an atmosphere that caters to people who like these sort of things, where would you go? Feel free to add others.

For me:
Coffee in US: Seattle World: Trieste Italy or Bogota Colombia
Beer in US: Portland World: Munich Germany
Wine in US: San Francisco World: Florence Italy
Spirits in US: Louisville World: Dublin Ireland
Tea in US: ...Bueller? Victoria BC or Niagara on the Lake in Americas World: London UK or Kyoto Japan
Pizza (Not completely universal, but relatively common in the west): New Haven CT in US, Naples in world (obviously)
Street Food: New Orleans or Philadelphia in US, Mexico City in Americas, Berlin in Europe, Singapore/Hong Kong in Asia

Where/what else? What are your thoughts on these?

Possibly NYC on "Capital of Meat", because it is just such a blend of so many different places and their flavors (and thus, different cuts of meat).

No, more Buenos Aires I guess. Argentina eats two times more beef per capita than USA...

Coffee: Vienna? Or Paris.

Beer: Brussels. I hate beer in general but Brussels has beers that taste good.

Tea: Never been a fan of tea in other countries. Japanese tea is pretty terrible imo. The variety is weak and the taste is meh. They are better at desserts and haute cuisine. European tea is lame af. They are better off sticking to coffee.

Spirits: Idk. I guess one of the Slavic countries.

Pizza: Somewhere over Italy.

Street food: I'm usually disappointed by street food in other countries.

Meat: What does this supposed to mean?

Wine: There are like a billion countries claiming that their wine is the best in the world. I'll say that I like port wine so maybe Porto?
