    I have a very large gut that attests to this.

      As for the US, NYC easily has the best food IMO.
      Indian food is my favorite food on the planet. My experience in India, though, was not that great with regards to the food. The first meal I had in Mumbai smelled like it had been cooked in an outhouse. It was nearly inedible. Then we spent time down south in Goa, which was really fun and weed was plentiful but it isn't known for its cuisine.

      Best food I had was for sure in Rome. Also had a religious experience eating a tamale in Oaxaca --- they put theirs in banana leaves and mole (how the f do you do a tilde over the e?) on top. Overall, best food worldwide that I had was a tie between Mexico and Italy.

        You know, I take it back --- we have good food here other than New Mexican food. There are a few places I'd put up against just about anywhere. Of course, New Mexican only really exists here which is kinda cool. There's a "Santa Fe" restaurant in San Francisco now, though, if you want authentic stuff. I think the owners lived in NM.

        What's your delicacy there? Pasties?
        Dang, Iím impressed that you know about pasties!

        The stuff I live for around here is fresh water fish - walleye, trout, Coho salmon.

        And beer.

        The Frontier was awesome. Also went to another really good place, but Central American. Canít remember the name right off, but given all the time Iíve spent in El Salvador and Costa Rica, I was really impressed.

        Albuquerque is definitely on the serious list for retirement.

        And food in Rome...yeah, thatís incredible. Though I loved Tuscany - Florence, Lucca, Viareggio. My lifeís best meal was at a place called Nebraska about 10-15 km outside of Lucca. Man, that was a night.

        • I started googling "best state for food" and things like that. Nearly every one has California at or near the top, although some have Texas up there so obviously they're garbage rankings.

          • Money quote from the one I just read: "This state has it all, honestly. And if you don’t agree that it has the best food scene in America, well, you’re just plain wrong."


            Ha! Suck it, Heyelander!

              Spending extensive time in Baton Rouge sure increased my gut, that’s for sure.

              • But no one can really deny that California has the greatest variety and freshest food in the country, can they? I mean, California is the agriculture king of our country and whoever is in second isn't even close. Plus, seafood, proximity to Mexico, and gluten-free farm raised GMO free avocado tofu toast!

                    I only eat gluten free wheat, personally. And wild-caught beef.

                      I buy my beef from a local farmer; all grass fed and open range. But not wild caught.

                      But I’m definitely giving you a hard time on avocado tofu toast.

                        Lol I was just joking --- are there wild cows out there?

                        I like tofu okay and avocados okay and don't give two shits if anything is GMO free because I think that's, to borrow a turn of phrase, a bunch of malarkey. Never tried avocado toast. Maybe if I go visit Heyelander I'll give it a shot!

                        • Yay on GMO!!! I’m with you there.

                          Dunno about wild, but grass fed beef is yummy.

                              When it costs a million dollars to buy a modest home, that's a big part of it. Half of that $117k would be going to housing costs. But it does seem like the other half would be plenty for everything else.

                                Overall, food here is pretty meh.
                                That was my experience in San Jose, as well. If you were selective, you could find some pretty good places, but you couldn't just stumble into a good restaurant in San Jose the way you could in Austin.
