    Mmmm – some of my own favourites here as well as some I haven’t tried. I SO miss watching Bourdain and Zimmern back to back now that we’re travelling. Only caught one episode of Bourdain while we’ve been on the road.

      Andrea – Bourdain has the best job. Not sure whether I like the food he is eating or his travel locations better, but it has definitely expanded my bucket list.

    Nice selection. Having eaten the Hawaiian, Mexican and Thailand options, I concur. Not sure about the woman, but good sushi is very very good. Conch Roti sounds fantastic.

      Jeff – yes, conch roti is excellent. My favorite so far was at the Port Hole Restaurant and Bar, on sleepy little Bequia, part of (St. Vincent and) the Grenadines.

    You have definitely been eating your way around the world. By the way, I don’t think you can call it naked sushi if the girl is wearing a bikini ;-)

      Stephanie – agreed. I was a little disappointed in the swimsuit myself… but it did lure us in.

    It’s impossible to name my 10 most favorable foods.

      Richard – this is in the context of the best food while traveling – still hard to whittle down to a top 10, but I managed to pull out my favs.

      Flip – imagine a semi clear jelly that is mainly a transport for chilis and chili flavor that you can spread on the livers. Really good.

    You and I are two peas in a pod! Tom Yum soup and fish tacos are at the top of my list! Nom nom nom …

      Rachelle – I still seem to order Tom Yum soup every single time I step into a Thai restaurant anywhere. I’ve had a lot of hit or miss fish tacos, but these were excellent.

    You had me at food- and then I loved you when you said fish tacos!! my favorite!

      Jade – I have yet to find a good fish taco place in Seattle which is odd, but I’m sure I’ll find it soon. I was really disappointed in the Taco truck near our house – no flavor. I wish I could transport myself back to Puerto Viejo for a quick taco fix.

    Some really interesting foods! Would love to try that risotto.
    What a job being the ‘naked sushi’ girl! Would you call that a waitress on your resume? :P

    Awesome Don, I share your passion for eating food while traveling.

    I saw that first picture and my mouth immediately watered. It’s been a few years since I have eaten poke, and it’s one of my favorite things to eat in this world (my Mother is from Hawaii).

    I’d like to sample that New Orleans style “cardiac arrest,” that just looks greasy and bomb!

    I miss Spätzle. I used to work for Mercedes-Benz USA and would travel to Stuttgart occasionally and always had the Spätzle while sharing a restaurant table with strangers.

    I was hungry before I read this post. Now, starving. Great photos. And naked sushi, cool.

    I think a bikini is appropriate for naked sushi — would’ve want to see her California rolls… :)

    My mouth was watering with every photo, even the last one! Awesome food porn. I especially love #1 – the poke; yes, a biased choice since I am from Hawaii. Luckily, we have a healthy supply of good tuna (ahi) in Seattle that I can always make my own whenever I’m craving it. Oh, and it seems that girl look irked to have all that sushi on top of her. Just tell her to give them all to me.

    I’ve added several of these to my bucket list. Not the conch though, not the conch . . ..
