The best thing you've ever eaten


Quote  |  Reply

I recently went to Walt DisneyWorld in Orlando and we got the dining plan as part of our package. We could use 2 regular meals to eat at a 'signature' restaurant. The first night there, we ate at The Yachtsman Steakhouse and it was without a doubt the absolute best steak I have ever had. Everything there was wonderful but that steak is haunting me in my dreams. I HAVE to go back!

Just wondering, what's the best thing you've ever eaten?

Well, the best steak I've ever eaten was a filet I had at Chicago Chop House.  The steaks there are so tender they provide non-serrated knives at the tables.

The best thing I've ever eaten overall is kind of hard to pin down.  I will say one of the most memorable meals I've ever had is some veal marsala I had at a tiny little Italian place in Rolla, MO (first date w/hubby).

Best steak I have ever eaten: Probably in Bukarest where I was taken out to a business dinner in the cities best steak house.

Best applecake: Ages ago in top of a mountain in Lichtenstein.

Best fish and chips...hm...hard to say. Possibly at Sole and Place in London.

Best Pizza: I haven't been to Italy so it was last year in Notting Hill. I'm sure there is room for improvement, though.

 

I'm a veggie, and the best meal I've ever eaten was also at Disney! At Chefs de France, the meal with french onion soup, macaroni gratin (best bechamel I've ever had!) and creme brulee.

1975 - After one whole month of eating nothing but military issued canned corned beef hash for breakfast, lunch, and dinner - fresh octopus caught and cooked by yours truly.

Best steak was at The Angus Barn in Raleigh NC (but the steaks at Ruth's Chris are wonderful too)

Best thing ever was in Virginia Beach at a little restaurant walking distance from where we were staying, can't recall the name now, but it was an appetizer, a few bacon-wrapped scallops that were broiled perfectly and came out of the kitchen hot and sizzling and it was the most perfect melding of flavor and textures. I would go back in a heartbeat.

I do not like steak, but the (last) best thing I have ever eaten was a Birthdaycake shake my friend made on her birthday. Not very healthy, but so delicious <3

Who knows? Tomorrow is another day for more delicious food

 Did you realize that french onion soup is made with beef and chicken stock?

I was about to ask the exact same thing. Oh how I wish French onion soup were vegetarian!

You can make it with vegetable broth, but the taste is not the same. Not even close to the same.

The best thing I ever ate was a pan-fried fillet Mignon with a red wine sauce.  It was wonderful, but I am so mad, because my wife and I were just learning, so we were all over the place and very disorganized and strayed from the original recipe quite a bit.  That was around six years ago, and we've never been able to reproduce it.

Not even if you try to use extra wine... it's just not the same.

I can't even imagine using that fake soy cheese with it either.

Open-faced grilled eggplant sandwich from this hole-in-the-wall restaurant just a hop and skip away from work.

Hells to-the yeah

Mmm. I am fortunate enough to have a friend who is a total foodie. Loves food, wine, recipes, quality cuisine. And I've eaten some of the best foods in my life because of him. Doesn't help that he's a lawyer and always buys, either ;)

My favorite though...has to be in Vegas. Bradley Ogden's restaurant at the Palazzo (I think)..best meal I've ever eaten in my life. But the crowning achievement was his butterscotch pudding. Made with real butter, cream, and scotch. Man...I've had dreams about that stuff. Tasted perfect.

Not to mention I've some AMAZING steak and wine pairings too. Can't even name them all.

 That sounds awesome - I love butterscotch pudding!  In terms of dessert, I've got to go with the tiramisu at Giovanni's on the Hill (St. Louis).  I swear they should just call that stuff "orgasm on a plate."

They do. That's what Tiramisu means!

Puffins.

 My God, if it is possible I will eat that. And make lion noises as I eat because that is TOTALLY what the cool kids are doing these days.

My wife. Tongue out
