About 5 years ago, stopped at a watermelon truck. The one on highway 6 headed to Houston, right before 290. The best , reddest, sweetest, juicest watermelon I've ever eaten. Put it in a cooler and ate it on a beach in Freeport. Kinda ruined all watermelon for me.

I had an utterly massive-- 23oz-- veal chop at Harry Carey's Steak House in Chicago some 20 years ago. No piece of beef has ever come even remotely close.

In 2002, I had a salmon steak sammitch at a hole in the wall restaurant, hidden in a mall in Las Vegas. Was, is, and probably forever will be the best fish sammitch I've ever eaten. The measuring stick against which all other fish sammitches are compared, and they are invariably found lacking.

Don't worry we have lots here too - I don't buy them until the Ontario ones come on line.

This, except for me it was at a Mendocino camp ground after diving for and cleaning them...dipped in egg and crushed Ritz crackers, fried in butter. OMG it was delicious.

Part of it must be the setting!

I forgot to mention that the ab was thin sliced (after tenderizing). The most succulent comparison I can think of is fresh cooked Dungeness crab or perhaps Pacific Razor clam diggers (the foot) pan fried in butter. Then there are Pacific oysters barbecued in the shell with butter and garlic. Oh god, now I'm really hungry.

In this setting:


^ One of the best meals, my first day in Costa Rica. Everything was locally sourced and delicious.

But honestly, my favorite meal is still my grandmother's homemade turkey salad on bunny bread with a layer of potato chips (which I haven't had for years now). Standard lunch after a morning of swimming and hiking during our family's annual camping trip/reunion. You can take the girl out of the country but...

Too many to choose from but the shellfish talk above has me drooling for more of the mussels baked with pesto, garlic butter, asiago and jack cheese I had in Ballard, WA a couple weeks ago.

Love the Mexican food in NM. I had the best chile rellenos in Santa Fe a couple years ago and chicken enchiladas years before that.

The most recent incarnation of ambrosia in my life was dessert at a vegetarian place: sweet rice cooked in coconut milk with a sweet and salty coconut sauce, served with ripe mango. Orgasmic.

This incredible Sopa Mariscos at a tiny hole in the wall restaurant in Cabo San Lucas, before they ever had paved roads and put in a stop light... (long before the cacophony they have down there now...). This "fish stew" was probably cooking for weeks, had just the richest flavor, and just the right amount of road dust... and since we still talk about it some 30+ years later, it must have been the best food we ever had.

Over the years, I have had, and made, such wonderful foods it really is hard to say... what is the single best thing.

I remember wonderful meals in Spain and France, and fantastic coffee in a greasy spoon roadhouse off of I40... I recall simple street tacos, and fantastic haute cuisine plates at white linen table restaurants.

Good food is as much a situation thing as it is just pure taste.

Penn Cove Mussels no doubt...

Had those in Maui one time, with some fantastic and very well prepared sushi. We laughed as we knew exactly where Penn Cove was.

I wouldn't doubt it. The server said the mussels and oysters were all local.
