100 Foods

I first saw this list through facebook and wanted to see just how many of these I’ve crossed off the list. I like that the list is very diverse in terms of ethnic and unique foods, however, if you live in a metropolitan area, you’ve likely been exposed to a lot of these already. some are only available in certain regions like alligator and chitlins.

94. Sweet Potato Fries
95. Sweetbreads
96. Tom Yum
97. Umeboshi
98. Venison
99. Wasabi Peas
100. Zucchini Flowers

So there are 18 foods I haven’t tried yet, not bad. I would definitley protest the Kobe beef one, because not many people can even get kobe beef – we now have a pretty decent supply of wagyu, which is commonly called Kobe even though it technically isn’t. basically this list sucks. if you’ve eaten at some decent ethnic places, you will have filled out a ton of this list. when I see a “100 foods to eat before you die” list, I want it to have exotic things that are unique or scary to eat. here is the start to my 100-foods list. we’ll see how far I can get:

1. wax apple
2. sugar apple
3. rocky mountain oysters
4. otoro tuna belly
5. skate wing
6. raw oysters
7. branzino
8. squid ink pasta
9. prickly pear
10. the “Elvis” peanut butter sandwich
11. whole steamed lobster
12. crabs of all kinds (alaskan, dungeonous, blue)
13. granita
14. a perfect baguette
15. sourdough bread
16. iberico ham
17. paella
18. nutella crepe
19. belgian waffle
20. schnitzel
21. high end ramen
22. umeboshi
23. sea urchin
24. taro/poi
25. roasted suckling pig
26. homemade marshmallows
27. foie gras
28. macarons
29. peking duck
30. beer can chicken

Now I’m sure there are other foods everyone needs to try, what are yours?
