humanity’s culinary achievements.

I’d love to take two months off, and work down this list one by one:

The 50 best foods in the world.

Just reading through the line-up makes my mouth water.

    Suddenly my breakfast bagel just ain’t cuttin’ it…

    Thanks a lot.

    I think we’re going to have to dispatch you into New York to test that hamburger. 🙂

    And I’m a bit skeptical that the best steak in the world is to be had in Spain.

    I had fun reading through and noting the location of the Best Of. Most of it wasn’t particularly shocking (you’re going to get the best French food in France, unsurprisingly) though I did *not* expect the award for best pizza to go to Connecticut. How’d that happen?

    That’s not just a list. That’s a checklist. Hum. Drunkard’s Walk, Least Spiral or ranked by other things I want to do in the locale? Decisions!

    Best beefsteak I’ve had was at a little brassiere(grill) in the old town of Nice, France, outdoor table, view of the beach. Can’t seem to find it on google earth… but it’s been 7 years, and the whole area is chock-full of restaurants. Some of my landmark places are gone, that grill could be too.

    “38. Best place to eat: Currywurst
    Konnopke’s Imbiss, Berlin”

    I thought Berlin was anathema for currywurst?

    • Marko Kloos says:

      Well, Berliner currywurst is made with knackwurst, which is precisely the wrong way to make a currywurst. Real currywurst, Ruhrpott style, is made with bratwurst instead.

      It’s a feud, like Mac vs. PC, or Coke vs. Pepsi. Westphalians will invariably come down on the side of Bratwurst currywurst, while Easterners and Berliners will stand fast in defense of their version.

    They didn’t include modern masterpieces such as deep fried coke and deep fried butter.
