A gastronomical bucket list of epic proportions…or portions. haha!
Carlos here and I love being a foodie. Trying foods from all over is fun and the flavors you find are rarely duplicated. Talk to anyone who’s ever lived in New York City and ask them to try some NYC styled pizza from anywhere else…9 times out of 10 they’re gonna say, “Not even close…get outta here with that!” (or at least that’s how they would sound in my head). So here is a list of the places I want to go and the foods I want to try, its my Ultimate Foodie Bucket List!
- Fresh Caught Lobster from Maine. Lobster doesn’t get any fresher or tastier than it does from Maine and its on my list!
- Dim Sum from Hong Kong. Enough movies have shown the epicness of the old school traditional teahouse dim sum to make this a must.
- Pierogis from Poland. My wife LOVES pierogis and I never understood it until I tried some, now I must try them from their origin, Poland!
- Tapas from Spain. I love a good tapas restaurant. You order these small plates and you can try a multitude of different flavors. Its so much fun, now imagine doing that in the country that invented it!
- BBQ in Hill Country, North Carolina, and Kansas City. Lets be honest I could make BBQ ONLY Bucket List with a few different locations, but I just combined them into one with my three must try places. One day I may know which is truly the BBQ king.
- Steak in Argentina. I’ve done the Brazilian Steakhouse thing here in the states and tried “Argentinian Steak” but they say nothing compares to the actual thing and hey who’s gonna complain about a trip to Argentina?
- NYC Pizza. Pizza may have started overseas, but its been perfected in New York. There’s nothing like an NYC slice and I can’t wait to actually try it.
- Pho in Vietnam. You can find Pho nearly anywhere these days but trying some from the country that created it would be a foodie dream come true.
- Tacos from Mexico. This one is actually coming true for me next year when I go to Mexico for vacation. I’ve had authentic style tacos in Texas, but getting them from a street vendor in Mexico is a must. It doesn’t get more authentic.
- The Original Cronut from NYC. The controversial croissant-donut hybrid’s origin may be up for debate, but its been said that it doesn’t get better than Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York.
- The Kiss of Death, Fugu in Japan. The restaurant preparation of fugu (pufferfish) is strictly controlled by law in Japan and only chefs who have qualified after three or more years of rigorous training are allowed to prepare the fish. Sign me up!
I will admit, half the fun of being a true foodie is the travel associated with it. Going to the source of a foods creation simply adds to the fun of it. So if something’s missing from my list, feel free to add it! Just comment below and let me know!
