104 Travel Bloggers Revealed Their Last Meal To Have (I like 15th & 102th)
If tomorrow is your last day on Earth and you have one last meal to enjoy. What will that last meal be? I used to fantasize that if I was about to have my last meal, I would eat everything I never let myself have. We ask 104 of our favourite food and travel bloggers to find out their last meal on Earth.
1) Annette White from http://bucketlistjourney.net/
For my last meal I would immediately head to the Basque country of Spain to indulge in countless flavors of pintxos (or pinchos). These small snacks have an array of toppings placed on crunchy bread, spiked with a toothpick and displayed buffet style in many Spanish bars. My favorite is the piquillo pepper jam with goat cheese and a vinegar reduction or the blood pudding morcilla cocida. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
2) Shannon Ullman from http://livesabroad.com/
Choosing a last meal is difficult as there are so many equally delicious dishes around the world. But, if I have to choose one, I would pick the raw/vegan Malaysian Laksa soup from Seeds of Life. This restaurant is located in Ubud, Bali and it’s healthy, all vegan and offers a huge selection of desserts! The soup itself has all of the right flavors without any of the unhealthy ingredients and it’s refreshing too!
3) Gordon and Paula from http://www.contentedtraveller.com/
Because of the conviviality of the experience, and the fact that this is a rustic meal to be shared with friends and family, we select Paella. We attended The School of Paella, Escuela de Arroces y Paella Valencian in Valencia, Spain under the tutelage of Master Chef Cross. Our Diploma in Paella is now proudly displayed on our fridge. As our last meal, we would share our paella with people we love, so that makes it a very special last meal.
4) Laurence Norah from http://www.findingtheuniverse.com/
I’d have to go for some British comfort food – something like a steak and ale pie with chips (fries to my American friends). This would have to be served in a lovely British pub, ideally by a roaring fire, washed down by a pint of local beer!
5) Jessica Norah from http://independenttravelcats.com/
Lamb is my favorite meat so I’d definitely go for lamb cutlets with mint sauce accompanied by Israeli couscous with lemon & red pepper seasoning. Then, I absolutely love Creme Brulee, so if there’s room for dessert, that’s what I’d have to finish! To drink I’d have a glass of water and then a cup of Mariage Frères tea.
6) Michael Turtle from http://www.timetravelturtle.com/
If I could have just one last meal, I wouldn’t go for something expensive or exotic. I would choose one of my favourite things ever – ramen! I love the Japanese noodle dish and I eat it all over the world. There’s something so comforting about the warm thick broth. Of course, the best ramen you will ever find is in Japan so, if I could, I would go to Tokyo to enjoy that final meal!
7) Anuradha Goyal from http://www.inditales.com/
My last meal would be definitely the street food of India – specially Pani Puri. It is also called Gol Gappa and Puchka. There is nothing in the world that can beat the tangy taste of Gol Gappas. You must have it standing in the corner of a street in the evening for the best taste. You can get it anywhere on the streets of India though the taste varies with the region.
8) Robert Schrader from http://leaveyourdailyhell.com/
If the world was ending tomorrow, I hope I’d be in Japan—not just because of the food, of course, but that’s what this hypothetic is about. I’d be seated in a sushi bar, preferably one off the tourist trail, chowing down on a sashimi donburi bowl, a.k.a. a heaping serving of rice topped with delectable pieces of fresh, raw fish. My bank account would be ending along with the world, so I’d probably order a few and eat myself into a food coma!
9) Max Hartshorne from http://www.gonomad.com/
Once again, on a visit to Italy’s magic island, Sardinia, I’ve eaten a 100 foot meal, and boy was it good!
We drove out toward the coast, to the Sinis Peninsula, to Agritourismo Il Sinis in Sardinia, Italy. Here, brother and sister Salvatore and Magdelena Porcu brought out dish after dish of simple food that all came from their farm.
Set before us as we entered were a panoply of plates. Grilled eggplants and peppers. Fried eggplant balls, stewed beef, fried squash blossoms, olives and artichokes…and these were only the starters. Then Magdalena brought out her homemade ravioli, filled with ricotta, and after sweeping away our second plates, the piece de resistance, suckling pig, two months old, from the barnyard. They told us that the sows had plenty more piglets for their table, and don’t worry–if the nine of us didn’t finish the groaning board, “roast pig is better the next day anyway.”
The wine in little carafes flowed, and then Salvatore broke out his own liqueurs–one bright green made from wild fennel, and another from pears. We asked them how the got those big pears into that those small bottles. And they said that many of the trees branches grow right into the empty bottles, affixed with rope the a branch.
Times like these are when I revel in my life as a travel writer, I enjoy meeting people like this, hearing their stories and eating such delicious food that came from right here.
10) Adam Groffman from http://travelsofadam.com/
Maybe it’s silly, but I think I’d go with pizza for my last meal. It’s one of my go-to foods (like it is for everyone) and it’s just such a comfort meal—perfect anytime of day and or any type of occasion. In Naples, they make the best pizza in the world (trust me when I say the hype is based on reality!) so I’d go with a classic Neapolitan pizza.
11) Lynn and Noah Camp from http://www.becausewecamp.com/
If it’s our very last meal on Earth, then we’re flying to Japan to experience our first Izakaya (Japanese Tavern) all over again! While we were there we indulged in the chicken skin, tender beef skewers, cheese crisps with drizzled honey, scallions and chicken in a citrus sauce and roasted soy sauce rice balls just to name a few! That’s the beauty of this place, you don’t ever have to settle with just one dish so we’d want sample the entire, mouth-watering menu before finally going to that big Izakaya in the sky.
Kidoriya, 590-2 Higashishiokojicho, Karasumadori Nanajo-sagaru, Shimogyo-ku | 1F Yodobashi Bldg., Kyoto 600-8216, Kyoto Prefecture
12) Randi and Michael from http://justapack.com/
For our last meal, we would choose the local dining experience that was organized for us by Interesting Times Bureau in Bucharest, Romania. We indulged on five star dining, prepared with delicious Romanian ingredients, and enjoyed it friendly locals.
Each dish was steeped in Romanian tradition, from the pickled mushrooms, to the Salata de Vinete (Romanian eggplant dip), to the bell peppers stuffed with buckwheat and mushrooms, to the fried polenta sticks. The dishes were robustly flavored and unmistakably Romanian.
13) Matthew Long from http://landlopers.com/
I’m a carnivore at heart and one of my favorite meals is a classic American steakhouse experience. Starting with a crisp salad, the star of the show is of course an expertly prepared steak – in my case a filet mignon. Add plenty of family style sides like potatoes and mac n’ cheese and you have the perfect meal. No meal is complete without dessert and the steakhouse staple is also my favorite – a sweet and delicate bread pudding.
14) Earl Baron from http://www.wanderingearl.com/
Tostadas from the Dona Mary Restaurant in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. It might not be the fanciest meal or the most atmospheric place to dine, but this simple restaurant serves up tostadas that I simply can’t eat enough of. Homemade crispy tortillas topped with shredded chicken, fresh cheese, sour cream, lettuce and avocado…so yummy every single time.
15) Alesha and Jarryd from http://www.nomadasaurus.com/
Our last meal would be at Tuan Ngoc’s Restaurant in Phong Nha, Vietnam. Besides cooking the absolute best blend of unique Vietnamese food around, they also provide the a homely atmosphere. Tuan and Ngoc are too of the most welcoming and caring people we have ever met and they make every single customer feel like a member of the family. But what meal would we order? Either their secret hotpot (not even on the menu), or their twice-cooked melt-in-your-mouth pork ribs! Total cost – $4!
16) Giselle and Cody from http://mindfulwanderlust.com/
If we had to choose a last meal, we would absolutely have to go with vegan Khao Soi, an incredibly flavourful rich textured coconut curry broth, served with rice noodles, native to Chiang Mai, Thailand, AND crispy tofu sauté with creamy peanut sauce.
Surprisingly we did not find our favourite dishes in Chiang Mai; we found them at Kwan’s Cookery, a modest Thai restaurant, and cooking school in Koh Lanta, Thailand. Both dishes are an absolute dream. We look forward to another visit in early 2017.
17) Amanda Burger from http://www.burgerabroad.com/
My last meal would definitely be at Thai Vegan in Albuquerque, New Mexico, US. They have an amazing entirely plant-based menu of inventive Thai dishes sprinkled with classic American comfort foods like burgers, fries and ice cream sundaes. My all-time favorite meal is the Creamy Chicken, which is lightly battered pieces of soy chicken on a bed of fresh veggies and greens, covered in a delicious sweet and spicy creamy sauce that is to die for!
18) Melvin Boecher from http://www.traveldudes.org/
If I would have to choose my last meal, what would it be? There is so much amazing food out there in the world, which makes it hard to choose. I’ve eaten at some of the best restaurants in the world, but I’ve also explored the street food on the different continents. But for my last meal, I would stay to what have accompanied me for most of my life, the Pommes Currywurst! I’m German and the Currywurst is probably the best, most popular and traditional street food you can get in Germany. You’ll find an “Imbiss” selling Currywurst in every city, if not, I would not call it a city. Every currywurst seems to be the same on the first look, but it’s not. There are different tastes, depending on the sausage, but especially with its sauce. Usually you order to your Currywurst a Pommes rot/weiss (red/white). So the french fries gets served with ketchup and mayonnaise.
Just thinking of it, makes me hungry and I’ve just made my decision of what I’ll have for lunch today.
19) Nick & Dariece from http://www.goatsontheroad.com/
For our last meal on earth, it would have to be something from Italy. We recently ate our way through Rome, Florence, Tuscany and Venice and even though we already loved Italian food, we feel like we had never eaten any proper, authentic food until visiting the country. We would love to have a margarita pizza with buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil, as well as homemade spaghetti carbonara pasta.
20) Dr Paul Johnson from http://www.aluxurytravelblog.com/
As a last dish, I would go for the signature dish of ravioli of black Bresse chicken with pan-fried langoustines on a bed of forest mushrooms as served at the Parkheuval Restaurant in Rotterdam. This is rich and gutsy yet somehow wonderfully light at the same time…
21) Jessica Festa from http://jessieonajourney.com/
My last meal would be traditional Uzbek cooking at Damira’s house in Brooklyn. I recently did a culinary workshop with her through League of Kitchens, and was able to immerse myself in Uzbekistan culture through music, dress, traditions and, most importantly, food. Along with the snacks Damira prepared before the group arrived like samsa pastries, non flatbread and meat pies, we used her family recipes to create dimlama (beef and vegetable stew), fried and boiled barak(dumplings), boemjon salat (eggplant salad), bodring salat (cucumber salad), fruit compote and achik chuchuk (tomato-onion salad) — all prepared with fresh produce and fragrant herbs and spices. As we cooked Damira also told us about the medicinal properties of the ingredients, like how cumin kills food-borne bacteria and that cabbage is an anti-inflammatory.
22) Jacob Fu Esther from http://localadventurer.com/
When it comes to food, we both have very different tastes. As a last meal, Esther would have a meal at French Laundry. Everything is cooked to perfection! I on the other hand, would love to have a simple Double Double with grilled onions from In-n-Out.
23) Dave Brett from http://www.traveldave.co.uk/
If the world was coming to an end and I could only go down after enjoying one last final meal, I would book the next flight out to Seoul, South Korea and head to the closest Korean BBQ establishment.
Koreans have hands down nailed the BBQ experience and not only made it tasty but fun too.
It’s important to share the experience with friends and a glass of soju and that only adds another element to why I enjoy this cooking experience so much.
Having an endless selection of side radishes, salads and pickles to choose from such as Kimchi, to accompany the whole BBQ only adds to the experience.
In fact, every time I think of Korean BBQ and the tender grilled meats, my mouth starts to water.
If that’s not an indication of wanting to make this my final dish, I’m not sure what is. Korean BBQ, you will always be my final meal.
24) Erin Bender from http://travelwithbender.com/
Growing up in Australia we are big fans of lamb. However the best lamb dish we had was on the beach in Sifnos, Greece. If the world was ending tomorrow I would head back to the town of Vathi for lunch at the restaurant Tsikali. Everything was faultless, the hospitality, the location, the view, the food, the flavour. All the food is locally grown and prepared by the restaurant owner’s family. The cheese is handmade. The vegetables are grown on his farm. The animals are respectfully hand-reared especially for restaurant guests. The respect for food is palatable, literally. The food tastes alive, brighter, more flavourful. On top of that the location was unbeatable. Our kids loved the beach, and after quickly eating their fill, took no time to get their clothes off and splash around in the shallow water. As parents, this gave us a few rare moments of uninterrupted relaxation. The pace of life in Vathi could not be rushed. It compelled complete relaxation.
25) Rob & Nat from http://www.loveandroad.com/
No doubt our last meal on earth would be Turkish food! Any dish from a street stall or a local restaurant would make us happy. Give us some köfte, meze, manti, çörba, pide and homemade olives that we can rest in peace. Turkish food is simply delicious and you don’t need to go to fancy restaurants to try the best recipes. From the street dürüm kebabs to the sweet and nutty Turkish delights, everything is mouthwatering and comfy food.
26) Clelia Mattana from http://www.keepcalmandtravel.com/
As far as my “last meal” before I die is concerned, I’d have to say that being Italian, I’d definitely go for a local dish. In particular,I’d choose one that is not only traditional in my island, Sardinia, but it’s also only found in my hometown! Its name is “Panada” and it’s truly delicious! It’s a salted “pie” made of pastry filled with several different ingredients, such as potatoes, anchovies, fava beans and peas for the vegetarian version or different types of meat. The content of “Sa Panada gets cooked by the steam created inside the “pie” (which is closed by a pastry top) when it’s in the oven. The best part for me is the external “crust” and the bottom, where you can really taste all the amazing flavors of this dish.
27) Nelson Carvalheiro from http://nelsoncarvalheiro.com/
I would want my last meal on this planet to be the one that brings me closest to home, and no other food in the world that this for me like Charcoal Grilled Portuguese Fish. No complicated arrangements would be necessary. I would wait for the fisherman of Praia da Leirosa, Portugal to arrive with the catch of the day. Then I would just need some charcoal, a hand full of rough sea salt and my final food wish would be complete.
28) Carolann & Macrae from http://onemoderncouple.com/
No question about it, if we found out the world was ending and we had one meal left to enjoy, we’d head to Cebu, Philippines to one of our favourite restaurants, Carnivore. While in Cebu we couldn’t help but return day after day to try different dishes. Their fresh ingredients and innovative recipes left our taste buds singing praises and begging for more. Serving new American cuisine and incorporating local Filipino ingredients, Carnivore would be our last stop, literally, where we’d work our way through their entire menu, item by item.
29) Anton Diaz from http://www.ourawesomeplanet.com/
My last meal would be over Richman’s Lechon de Lechon with truffle rice and foie gras over the company of friends to celebrate life! This is the best lechon in the world with crispy thin skin and only the most decadent ingredients. You can eat and enjoy without any worry!
30) Karolina & Patryk from http://karolinapatryk.com/
If the world was ending tomorrow, we would have a hearty 3-course meal! For the starter, we would eat our favourite fois gras with crispy toasts. For the main course a traditional Polish dish: cutlet, mashed potatoes and hot beetroot salad. And for a dessert a chocolate cake, preferably sacher torte. Everything served with a glass (or bottle if it’s the end of the world!) of good red wine. Yummy!
31) Howard Blount from http://backroadplanet.com/
Without a doubt, pasta is my favorite food group! And in all of my travels, the signature seafood pasta from Shells Restaurant in Brandon, Florida, is hands-down the best pasta I have ever had. This mound of linguine, shrimp, scallops, and mussels, smothered with a mystical blend of garlic, cream, and wine is heaven on a plate. If tomorrow would be my last day on Earth, I would want to leave the world with the taste of Shells seafood pasta on my lips!
32) Keith Jenkins from http://velvetescape.com/
My last meal would be a journey that reflects my life and all the amazing cuisines I’ve experienced during my travels. I would start in Girona (Catalonia) where I would dine at El Celler de Can Roca to experience, just one more time, the culinary genius of the Roca brothers. From here, I would head to Italy to have one last fettuccine vongole before continuing to Penang, Malaysia, to feast on Penang char kuey teow and Penang curry laksa. I’m sure my stomach will be at peace with itself after this journey!
33) Jeremy Albelda from http://www.theworldorbust.com/
Call me crazy, uncouth, or just the typical-American I probably am, but if I was on death row, or so hungover I had only minutes to live, I would sink my teeth into a sausage egg and cheese McMuffin from McDonald’s. One last greasy, artificial piece of heaven sliding down my esophagus as I slowly head down to hell.
34) Barbara Ann Weibel from http://holeinthedonut.com/
I would hop on a plane to Bangkok and order vegetarian Thai Green Curry (Gaeng Kiaw Wan) at Siam House on Silom Soi 20. This dish is loaded with fresh vegetables, which are sauteed in coconut milk that has been mixed with hot green chili paste. Since I’d only be around for a few more hours, I’d order it spicy enough to make my nose run and my eyes water – no worries about the after effects 🙂
35) Jonathan Look from http://lifepart2.com/
I have eaten strange and wonderful foods all over this planet of ours, but if the world were ending tomorrow, as my last meal I would have a “Blue Cheese Burger, with fries” from Ray’s Grill in Vientiane, Laos.
I have eaten a lot of hamburgers, of all different styles and types, in all corners of the world, but Ray’s burgers are truly world class. Specially spiced, tender Australian beef is grilled to medium rare and two slices of tender bacon are added on top. A slice of white cheddar and a slice yellow cheddar is then placed on top and a metal bowl is placed over the patty to further cook the burger and melt the cheese. When cooked to perfection, the party is placed on a soft toasted, locally made, artisan bun with lettuce and tomato and blue cheese crumbles are added.
It is comfort food for sure, but I think that is what anyone would want in their last day on earth.
36) Anja Beckmann from http://www.travelontoast.de/
I love to discover new places via food. I traveled for one year around the world and tried new dishes in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and South America. After my world trip I started my blog „Travel on Toast“ in German language. The name means „travel on the base of good food“, for my blog I travel 4 months per year.
Last year I went to Singapore, fell in love with the city, the people and the huge variety of food. I could eat laksa every day, it’s so tasty. I’m also fond of chicken rice and I tried fish head curry.
What would my last meal be? A tough question! As I love to try small portions of everything, I would opt for dim sum. I had it several times with friends in Singapore. I would order a whole lot of savory dim sum. But as I love everything sweet there would be some egg tarts too.
37) Vicki Garside from http://maketimetoseetheworld.com/
My last meal on earth would definitely have to be something with seafood. I love raw seafood dishes – ceviche’s, capriccios, sashimi’s – there is nothing better, but the one dish that sticks out in my mind is the Wasabi Tuna Tartare at Kilo Bali. Amazing fresh tuna marinated in citrus and sesame with just a kick of wasabi for spice, mixed with silky avocado and served with crispy flour chips for crunch.. it is simply perfection on a plate.
38) Alice Nettleingham from http://www.teacaketravels.com/
If I’m going to have tears rolling down my face with it being the end of the world, there’s no better way to make myself cry than by heading to the nearest Korean restaurant and eating the spiciest Kimchi Jiggae! Furiously bubbling away in a black scolding pot, this distinctive Korean comfort food hits the spot every time with its infamous ingredient: tangy, spicy, fermented cabbage! Sounds off-putting but it’s absolutely scrummy served with dollops of rice and a glass of soju’.
39) Jayne Gorman from http://www.girltweetsworld.com/
For my very last meal on earth I’d go for something very British – fish, chips and mushy peas! Eating salty fish, vinegary chips and a pot of mushed up peas reminds me of my childhood as we would visit the Fish n’ Chip shop for a weekend treat. The ones in the picture are from Poppie’s in East London, which is regularly voted as the best fish and chips in Britain.
40) Lauren from http://justinpluslauren.com/
My last meal would be at Tori’s Bakeshop in Toronto, Canada. The establishment is a vegan bakery by day, but in the evening, they open their “After Hours” restaurant. Tori’s offers comforting meals that are completely plant-based. I adore the margarita pizza topped with vegan mozzarella. Their vegan cheese platter is to die for! There are three types of cheeses (brie, smoked cheddar, and peppered chevre) made without any animal products. It’s one of my favorite meals ever.
41) Mark Wyld from http://wyldfamilytravel.com/
My last meal on earth would be lamb and fresh vegtables with gravy washed down by tyskie beer at Ochodzita Karczma. The vegtables taste amazing locally grown and cooked fresh. The lamb is tender braised in a brown gravy sauce. Ochodzita Karczma is located in the tatra mountains on the Border of Poland and Slovakia.
42) Sarah-Jane and Mate from http://www.chasingthedonkey.com/
Octopus Under The Peka
The Croatian classic of octopus cooked under the peka is the absolute definition of the simple things in life being the best. A peka is a bell-shaped clay lid which is heated and placed over the top of a dish containing potatoes, onion, garlic, various herbs, a succulent Adriatic octopus which is drizzled with local extra virgin olive oil. Embers are then placed over the peka as it bakes away. The result is something out of this world with crispy octopus flavored potatoes and absolute tender octopus. Peka is Croatian comfort food at its finest.
43) Matt Gibson from http://xpatmatt.com
My last meal would definitely be lots and lots of xiaolongbao (小籠包) (soup filled dumplings) and gan mien (dry noodles with sesame sauce) (乾麵) from the original Din Tai Fung on Xinyi Road in Taipei, Taiwan. The Taiwanese restaurant is famous for it’s soup dumplings for good reason. They are salty, savory, and delicioius.
Din Tai Fung has opened branches of the now high-class restaurant around the world — which is comforting while on the road — but none compares to the original on Xiny Road in Taipei, which is still just another hole-in-the-wall dumpling store the same as when it served its first xiaolongbao in 1972.
44) Chloë Gunning from http://www.wanderlustchloe.com/
I would definitely go for brunch at Caravan in King’s Cross, London. It’s one of my favourite restaurants in the city – buzzing from morning right through to night! I always go for the baked eggs with spicy sausage served in an iron pan. The eggs are in this amazing spicy tomato sauce, and it smells (and tastes) so delicious!
45) Kathryn Burrington from http://travelwithkat.com
One of my favourite places to eat from all my travels is actually in London so relatively close to home. Borough Market, just south of the River Thames, is a fabulous colourful place to visit, with food stalls overflowing with edible delights. Stopping by Shellseekers is a must whenever I visit for their scallops with crispy bacon and bean sprouts. They are collected by hand by divers off the Devon coast and are one of the most wonderful things I’ve ever tasted.
46) Audrey Lesner & Harry Lesner from https://thebudgetsavvytravelers.com/
A Chicago style pizza would be our choice for our last meal on Earth. Consider a thick, oven-baked, crispy crust. Next, comes a plentiful layer of flavorful red sauce. Now the chef places handfuls of fresh mozzarella cheese on top. After it bakes, in order to serve it properly, each stringy slice has to be manually detached from the pizza. A Giordano’s pizza leaves nothing to be desired, except that sadly it’s solely found in Chicago. If you find yourself in Chicago, we recommend an Italian sausage, green pepper, onion, with extra sauce pizza. Chose thick or thin crust. Both are heavenly!
47) Marissa Sutera from http://www.littlethingstravel.com/
I am a sucker for any kind of Italian food, especially when it comes to pesto. If there is a pesto pasta on the menu, I can’t help but order it. Tucked away on a quaint street in the heart of San Diego’s Little Italy, I enjoyed some of the freshest pesto I’ve ever had at Buon Appetito. They even served the Italian Birra Moretti, another favorite of mine. My craving would be satisfied with this meal as my last!
48) Mar Pages from http://www.onceinalifetimejourney.com/
I have been to a few molecular cuisine restaurants. The experience is usually fun, intriguing and feels more like a chef’s show than a meal. This is particularly true at Disfrutar, a restaurant that received its first Michelin star the year it opened and which is expected to receive its second this year, the second. It is the second entrepreneurial venture of Castro, Xatrutx and Casanas, three head chefs from elBulli, considered the world’s best restaurant for 10 consecutive years before it closed its doors in 2011. Disfrutar, translated as Enjoy, offers set tasting menus of 18 or 25 morsels that can be defined as smart explosions of flavours. The cuisine served is Mediterranean and deeply rooted in Catalunya with several references to childhood memories, like the waffle cream cookies turned cheese ice cream, and a few souvenirs from elBulli like the spherical olives. Each dish is incredibly well presented and cannot be repeated in a conventional cuisine, these are dishes you cannot make at home. I particularly enjoyed the prawn cocktail sandwich where the bread had been replaced by an airy crunch or the jelly macaroni carbonara, where the pasta is made of jelly and the sauce comes in foam texture.
49) Chris Backe from http://www.oneweirdglobe.com/
The end of the world is a big deal. Assuming that all other preparations had been made and all essential items had been escorted to an appropriate place from which to allow the end of the world to happen, I would thus attempt to make my way to the nearest steak restaurant. The biggest steak on your menu, please, medium rare. Garlic potatoes. Mixed veggies. Maybe some other side dishes. A generous slice of chocolate cake with mint chocolate chip ice cream on the side. A light lager.
50) Jonathan Sacks from http://everybodyhatesatourist.net/
My last meal would be at Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong. I visited it a few months ago, and I can still remember the exact taste & texture of their crispy bbq pork buns. They were so good that one order wasn’t enough. I was traveling solo & managed to eat six pork buns, plus more dim sum as well. I don’t care, it was all amazing. If that’s my last meal, there’s no better way to go out.
51) Karisa Klee from http://flirtingwiththeglobe.com/
My last meal would be Polish pierogi, or dumplings. Pierogi can be stuffed with many different fillings (savory or sweet), but you’ll commonly find them filled with potato, cheese, meat and sauerkraut, and topped with a sour cream and bacon bits “gravy.” I grew up eating pierogi in my hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin (which is home to a large population of Polish immigrants), and have also been lucky enough to travel to Poland (where I’ve eaten more than my weight in pierogi)!
52) Lexi J from http://www.theygetaround.com
I would have my last meal on earth back home in Australia at a Japanese restaurant called Wagaya. You can order a ton of yummy and well thought out dishes in one of the cooler settings I’ve eaten in. This is the restaurant that opened my eyes to the fact that Japanese food is more than just sushi and I couldn’t be happier about it. My back up would be slightly less classy – pizza with extra cheese.
53) Jennifer Lachs from http://squarehippie.com/
My favorite dish in the world is ceviche. It’s made from raw fish that is marinated in citrus juice, with onions cilantro and sometimes tomatoes. It’s often served with crackers and goes perfectly with an ice cold beer. You can find ceviche all over Peru and Central America and I am sure President Obama would enjoy it. My favourite ceviche is served in little cups at the fish market in Panama City, and this version here is made with octopus, squid and tomato and I tried it in Celestun in Mexico.
54) Karyn Locke from https://www.sandandorsnow.com/
I’m a total foodie, so narrowing down my final meal has been nearly impossible- so I’m going with a Primanti Bros. sandwich from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania! Two thick slices of Italian bread filled with grilled turkey, provolone cheese, tomato slices and then the ultimate toppings- vinegar-based cole slaw and homemade French Fries! So perfect. It’s served on deli paper (an homage to its beginnings) and with a side of freshly-brewed Sweet Tea I’d be sure to head straight to heaven.
55) Nina Ragusa from http://whereintheworldisnina.com/
Spicy, sour, sweet, crunchy, and fresh. These are the flavors and textures of my favorite Thai dish, Khao Soi. I could go totally cliche and eat something like macaroni and cheese (which is a favorite too), but I’d regret not being able to taste all of the variety of flavors and textures that’s out there in the culinary world. Many dishes can be one note. Not Khao Soi!
The curry and coconut broth is a perfect mixture that has a smooth taste with a tang. Adding the chili paste to taste is a must, even if you don’t like things too spicy, just a tad will make a difference. Then there’s the heavenly mixture of seasonal vegetables, including pickled cabbage, and egg noddles. The best part just might be the crunchy egg noodle topping. Who doesn’t like crunchy noodles? This would be my ultimate last meal since I’d get to tantalize my taste buds with as many flavors and textures as I could all from one dish. When in Thailand, it would be a sin to miss out on this bowl of goodness!
My favorite spot to get to this dish: Nong Beer Restaurant in Pai, Thailand
56) Zara Quiroga from http://bkpk.me/
If we had one last meal on Earth, we would head straight to Spice of Life in Goa’s Palolem Beach, India. This places serves the most delectable tandoori items we have ever tasted. We would ask for a platter of fiery tandoori chicken, juicy mushroom tikka and freshly baked tandoori roti. We would wash it down with fresh lime soda, and enjoy everything with our bare feet buried in the sand.
A combination of the greatest Indian food, soft sun and seaside breeze… can you imagine a better last meal than this one? We can’t!
57) RaW from http://www.rambleandwander.com/
For my last meal, I’d want something simple, familiar and comforting, something that reminds me of home, family & my growing up years. As such, Nasi Dagang Terengganu would be IT, the breakfast meal & festive dish of my home state of Terengganu in Malaysia. I wouldn’t mind which restaurant/food stall it is from as there are plenty of great options in Kuala Terengganu. As long as it’s complete with acar (vegetable pickles) and tuna curry prepared in Malay-style with some belimbing buluh, I guess I’d die a happy man.

If we had to choose one last meal on earth it would have to be a big plate of authentic egg Pad Thai. When we were in Chiang Mai, Thailand we lived next door to a small restaurant where the chef would cook up the best Thai food we’ve ever eaten. With just the right amount of spice from crushed red pepper to the perfect crunch from chopped peanuts, her Pad Thai was simply the best.

As a traveling family of four, we’d love to spend our last meal together by a lake or the ocean, enjoying an ice cream with our kids. One of our very favorite ice cream parlors is at Moolix Ice cream Shop in Kelowna, BC, Canada. Moolix has the perfect location right by the beach on Okanagan Lake, and lineups are usually out the door and down the street in the summer.

If the world was about to end, it would have to be the meal of a lifetime, inspired by my travels! For a starter, I would go to Bologna and make my own tortellini with raggu sauce. As a main, I would have Argentine steak from El Boliche de Alberto in Argentina, with a side dish of Japanese salmon sashimi. Then, French cheese with a thaï papaya salad and as a dessert, chocolate fondant with coffee. All with some tasty Argentine wine and Cognac for digestive. Yes, I’m French so a mea lis always full-on !

Hidden in the narrow lanes of Old Delhi, once the capital of Mughal Empire is a Mansion carefully restored one brick at a time. Here on the roof of 120-year-old “Haveli Dharampura’ is the restaurant called “Rooftop’, it is here overlooking the spires and domes of places of worship of every faith around me, I would like to have my last meal surrounded by my friends and family.
62) Sam and Toccara from http://forgetsomeday.com/
If the world were ending tomorrow, we would want a repeat of our amazing meal at Hotel Schutzen in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland.
We started with the apero platter, containing savory dried meats and alp cheeses. Sam ate the meat, while I enjoyed the scrumptious cheeses! For his main course, Sam ordered the beef sirloin steak, which he proclaimed was “the best steak he had ever had”. It was served on a hot stone, so he was able to decide how much the meat got cooked. The steak was served with variety of traditional and unique sauces, including curry and garlic butter, which were his favorites. I went for the vegetarian-friendly fondue. Now, this wasn’t just any swiss fondue, it was deliciously flavored- one side herb cheese and the other- tomato flavored. And if the meal wasn’t enough… check out the view!!
63) Kris and Tom Bartel from https://travelpast50.com/
My last meal would be a paella in Barceloneta, the dockside section of Barcelona. Although Barceloneta was irreparably altered by the 1992 Barcelona Olympic redevelopment, luckily it maintained its precious supply of family owned restaurants that specialize in the characteristic seafood paella particular to Barcelona. Add a green salad garnished with sweet Spanish olives and white asparagus, and Crema Catalana (Crème Brûlée) for dessert. Of course end it all with an espresso and a copa of Cardinal Mendoza brandy.
63) Marie-Eve from http://toeuropeandbeyond.com/
I vividly remember the tortellini I had at Da Danilo in Modena, Italy. In true Italian fashion I set out to find a place to eat right after dusk, finally sitting down on the flowery patio (those warm September evenings, y’all) at what must have been half past eight. The meal lived up to every expectation I had from Italian cuisine: the tortellini was stuffed with creamy ricotta and spinach, and was generously doused in balsamic glaze – the brown elixir is, after all, endemic to the area. If I had to pick one last meal on Earth, it would easily be the tortellini at Da Danilo.
64) Sally Elbassir from http://passportandplates.com/
My last meal on earth would have to be ahi tuna tacos with a side of french fries. I’m obsessed with ahi tuna and eat it at every chance I get. Since I’m from Southern California, fish tacos have always been a dietary staple for me – and the competition here is fierce to create the best one! It’s a tough call which restaurant I would choose because there are so many good ones, but my favorite is from El Pescador in San Diego – so fresh and flavorful!
65) Lotte Eschbach from http://www.phenomenalglobe.com/
Furano Maze Soba at Yuki to Hana in Furano, Hokkaido.
Maze Soba, also known as Abura Soba is known as Oil Ramen Noodles. It’s a noodle dish without broth, but with oil and several toppings. The toppings for this particular Maze Soba dish included a raw egg, vegetable tempura, pork slices, sesame seeds, chili oil, strips of nori, watercress and probably more ingredients I haven’t been able to identify. Most importantly: it’s one of the most delicious tings I have ever tasted… All the flavors and different textures came together perfectly and made it a very memorable dish. Besides it being a standout dish, the little restaurant was also very nice. A clean interior with wooden tables and chairs, an open kitchen and incredible staff. If I could fly back tomorrow I would, just thinking about this dish makes me hungry;-)
66) Claire and Dominic Down from http://flashpackingduo.com/
If the world was about to end and we had to have our last meal, then, without a doubt, it would be at Anna’s Restaurant on Koh Phi Phi. The restaurant is a fairly typical Thai restaurant but with a great atmosphere in a tropical setting. They serve the best chicken satay and chicken kebab we’ve both tasted in a very long time and that is why it would be our choice for our final meal.
67) Bethaney Davies from http://flashpackerfamily.com/
I would choose xiao long bao from Din Tai Fung as my last meal on earth. They are my absolute favourite food on the planet and I could literally eat dozens of these delightful little mouthfuls. I love the way the hot soup spills out of the dumpling and you get so much flavour right from the first bite. I’ve eaten them all over the world – Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Seattle and Melbourne, and they just can’t be beaten for any meal.
68) Daniel Noll from http://uncorneredmarket.com/
For our last meal together we would eat at one of the many pintxos (Basque tapas) bars in San Sebastian, Spain. We just discovered this style of tapas and eating during our last trip where we walked the Camino del Norte through the Basque region and we became addicted to it. The diversity and freshness of pintxos means that you never tire as you can go from seafood to smoked meats to cheese to vegetables seamlessly with so many flavors — sweet, salty, creamy — incorporated into such a small package that usually fits on top of a piece of bread. And, to finish off our last meal we would certainly have cheesecake from La Viña as it really is the best cheesecake in the world.
69) David & Veronica from http://www.gypsynester.com/
The smörgåsbord at the Grand Hôtel in Stockholm would be an ideal choice. It is more of an event than a meal, requiring several hours to sample all the delicious delicacies. It begins with cold tables of herring prepared several ways, salmon, smoked, salted, or marinated, and an array of bread and cheeses, along with a dizzying assortment of meats. As if that isn’t enough, a whole table of hot foods awaits, led by the classic Swedish meatballs. Of course there is also a dessert table which, in recognition of the abundance that precedes it, is mercifully small.
70) Joanna Kalafatis from http://www.losethemap.com/
One of the best dining experiences I ever had was at Chez Fonfon in the Vallon des Auffes section of Marseilles, France. They are renowned for their bouillabaisse, and it was truly as savory and delicious as I had heard it would be. Besides the food, the location of the restaurant in this small, charming fisherman’s village set a perfect tone to the evening, and the fact that it was hidden away from the more tourist-y spots of Marseilles made me feel as though I had discovered my own little corner of the city.
71) Eric Stoen from http://travelbabbo.com/
There’s no competition – for my last meal I would head to Dimitris Ammoudi Taverna in Oia, Greece for tzatziki, grouper, zucchini and tomato fritters and baklava. It’s my favorite restaurant in the world, both for the food and for the gorgeous setting on Ammoudi Bay. We’ve actually re-routed European trips the past couple years just to have lunch there.
72) Angie Silver from http://www.silverspoonlondon.co.uk/
I recently had one of the most incredible meals of my life at a restaurant called Sushi SORA in Tokyo. It was my first time visiting Japan and although we do have some wonderful sushi restaurants in the UK I’ve never tasted sushi so fresh or cut so beautifully. That dinner would certainly be my choice for my last meal.
73) Carmen Edelson from http://carmensluxurytravel.com/
If the world was ending, and I had to pick my last meal it would probably be eggplant lasagna in a local Italian cafe called iL Paesano. Eggplant lasagna is one of those great Italian comfort foods that is best with a glass of wine. There’s also the location, the vibe, and the people you share it with that make it extra special.
74) Ana Silva O’Reilly from http://mrsoaroundtheworld.com/
My last meal would be surprising for some – but I know exactly what I would want. I would be at a beach in Portugal, where I come from, by the sea, and enjoy a very simple meal: clams in white wine and coriander, followed by a fresh prawns and a beautifully grilled red mullet with roasted pepper and onion salad. The fish would have been caught that morning and it would be beautiful. I would pair it with a white sangria and majestic sea views.
75) Zoë Dawes from http://www.thequirkytraveller.com/
My last meal would be a starter of fried Haloumi cheese with a lime, coriander and capers dressing served with olive bread to remind me of living in Greece. Main course Cumberland sausages (well-cooked) with diced carrots and garden peas to remind me of Cumbria and home-cooking, with a dessert of fresh strawberries, gooey meringue and whipped cream to remind me of a quintessential English summer. The restaurant would be my own kitchen but with my son cooking for me and all my family and friends to share it.
76) Fabio Nodari from https://www.fabionodariphoto.com/
I lived in Taiwan for one year and had the chance to try the best street food in Taiwan as well as in other countries in Asia. I love the food there but if the world was ending tomorrow my last meal would surely be Sushi! I tried Sushi in Taiwan, in Hokkaido and also in the famous fish market of Tsukiji, Tokyo. No matter where I am in Asia, I’m always ready to eat Sushi!
78) Muhammad Arif Rahman from https://backpackstory.me/
Located in a corner of one of the famous markets at South Jakarta, Pasar Santa, it is not too difficult to find this legendary sate stall. But to find a seat there is another thing.
Sate Padang Ajo Ramon Pasar Santa –started in the ‘80s by Ramon Tunjang, is now served hundreds of customers every day, from 16.00 to 24.00. People’s favorite there is ox tongue sate drenched in spicy, and delicious, Sate Padang gravy.
79) Shandos Cleaver from http://travelnuity.com/
I can’t go past choosing gelato for my last meal on Earth; after all, if the world is ending, I might as well have something totally unhealthy! I loved the Burnt Caramel gelato pictured above that I tried recently (it’s Turkish-style, so takes longer to melt, perfect for hot days), however, my absolute favourite gelato is at Cow & the Moon Gelato in Sydney’s inner-west suburb of Enmore. They’ve even won a Gelato World Tour title in Italy!
80) James Clarke from http://www.nomadicnotes.com/
My last meal would be a seafood night on Vĩnh Khánh Street in District 4 of Ho Chi Minh City. There are dozens of seafood restaurants here with little tables and chairs spilling out onto the street. Sometimes it is a matter of stopping at the first one with available space. This would be an ideal last meal because it is something that is best done with a large group of people, so what better way to commiserate the end of the world than with a group of friends.
81) Michelle Minnaar from http://www.greedygourmet.com/
Having always adored seafood – crab, prawns, fish, cockles, mussels, calamari, sea urchin, you name it and I’ll demolish it – this is an easy question to answer. Lobster. Simply grilled lobster drowned in a herbed butter served with garlic and chilli spaghetti. What a way to go out with a bang! The dish can be ordered at Vicino (http://www.vicinorestaurant.com) in London.
82) Macca Sherifi and Brianna Wiens from http://www.abritandabroad.com/
Helsinki may be a surprise destination for food, but the city boasts four Michelin restaurants, which considering its small size is a huge number! The one we visited, Olo (http://olo-ravintola.fi/en/), plays upon Scandinavian and Finnish principles of locally sourced seasonal ingredients, all assembled with that Finnish flare for design. The one stand out dish was the steak tartar with a bone marrow snow on a bed of pickled cabbage. It was simply out of this world, and I could’ve eaten that dish all night long!
83) Karin-Marijke & Coen from http://www.landcruisingadventure.com/
If the world would end tomorrow, I’d love to eat a typical Dutch winter dish, zuurkool: potato stew with sauerkraut. I suppose that despite being a world traveler my deepest relation with food is connected to my roots. Zuurkool is the first thing I ask my mother for when I return to the Netherlands for a visit!
The dish is very simple: put potatoes in water with sauerkraut on top and boil until the potatoes are done. Drain off the liquid in a separate bowl. Mash potatoes and sauerkraut, using as much of the liquid to mix it into a smooth dish. Traditionally it is eaten with a type of sausage calledrookworst and fried bacon (instead of the liquid some will use the bacon grease when mixing the potatoes and sauerkraut). Vegetarians, on the other hand, may combine it differently, e.g. adding raisins or apple to the stew and serving it with fried bananas.
84) Romain Beuvart from http://www.la-thailande-et-l-asie.com/
Since I’m French, I would probably go for something french, we really do have some delicious food there and some that I really miss, one of them being “tartiflette”, a famous “savoyard” meal, yet, quite simple as made of potatoes, onions and reblochon cheese melted inside. Served with fresh baguette (essential as French !), that would be a great option !
Source from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tartiflette
85) Hayley Lewis from http://www.alovelyplanet.com/
If I had to pick a restaurant for my last meal, it would be The Rock (http://www.therockrestaurantzanzibar.com/) in Zanzibar. It really is paradise. Located on a rock, off the east coast of the Unguja, there is a small rowing boat to take you from the shore. It’s a tiny place with around 4 tables inside and the same out on the terrace, and the views of the Indian Ocean are breath taking. They serve seafood caught fresh that day and delicious wines.
86) Céline Simon from http://www.je-papote.com/
If the world was ending tomorrow, it’s without hesitation that I will have for my last meal on earth a Mauritian chicken chow mein called “Mine frit” in Mauritius. Of chinese inspiration cuisine, this dish is a specialty of Mauritius. No need for a great restaurant to eat it, you just have to go on the beach and order it in a small shop. My favourite way of eating it, is just in front of the ocean !
87) Sue and Dave from http://traveltalesoflife.com/
Under the Tuscan sun, the paradise of Cortona calls to travelers from an Italian hilltop location. Retaining much of it’s 3000 year old history behind Etruscan walls, Cortona is filled with jaw dropping views and medieval architecture. None of that compares to the succulent smells wafting out of multi-generation owned stone-walled restaurants. Our final meal on earth would be a succulent Caprese salad on a patio, a pasta course down the cobblestone street and chocolate delights from stalls lining the main square. Deliziosa!
88) Christian Lindgren from http://unusualtraveler.com/
My last meal would be a “Pluto Restaurant” in Copenhagen, Denmark. I would visit during the Pop Up brunch and have some Italian and French cut meat. Iberico Bellota – Italian Coppa – and don’t rememeber the last one. Cheese is Comté. Bread is sourdough
89) Brian and Noelle from http://wanderingon.com/
Choosing just one last meal is so hard – in reality, we would probably spend the entire day eating! After thinking long and hard about it, we finally settled on Shakshuka, a spicy middle eastern dish of poached eggs in a tomato and pepper sauce. Although it’s usually a breakfast dish, it can be eaten at any time of day. Could we have Thai and Indian curry for starters, sushi for dessert and Pizza with our tea at the end of the meal? Now that would be an incredible final meal on earth!
90) Carolynne and Chris from http://www.thethirstytourist.com/
Hands down my last meal would be from The Prime Grill in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. This restaurant is my guilty pleasure so it would only make sense to have my last culinary experience catered by the very best. I’d enjoy their salad to start. Mmmm. Even though a salad may seem like a healthier option it is mouth-watering with goat cheese crumble and savory balsamic dressing. For dessert – extra cheesecake please! I think cheesecake makes any situation better, especially the your last meal on earth kind.
91) Jennifer Campbell from http://www.justchasingrabbits.com/
As travelers, we have tried many interesting foods on our journeys including poutine in Canada, conch fritters in the Bahamas, and tempura shrimp in Japan. These foods quickly became some of our favorites, but if I had to choose my favorite meal knowing that the world would end tomorrow, I’d have to choose my mother’s pot roast with potatoes and carrots.
This dish is the definition of comfort food. It’s delicious, filling, and no one can make it like my mom, so if I’m eating it, I’m visiting with her as well!
The potatoes and carrots take on the meaty flavor of the roast, which is seasoned just right with salt. The juices from the meat and the veggies combine to make such a yummy gravy.
To make the meal even more perfect, I’d have to add homemade banana pudding!
92) Natasha Alden from http://theworldpursuit.com/
If the world were ending tomorrow, my last meal would, of course, be sushi. Sushi is my all time favorite food, I love salmon and tuna nigiri slathered with wasabi. My only requests would be that the sushi be made with the freshest fish from the Tsukiji Market in Tokyo, and that it be unlimited so that I could eat until my hearts content.
93) Sabine from http://www.thetravellingchilli.com/
My last meal would be a steaming pot of mussels. I love this traditional Belgian dish when made with mussels coming from the Dutch / Belgian coast. They are large and have a full, intense and briny flavour. There are various ways to prepare them, but I like it when they are steamed with a handfull of shallots, cellery, parsley, freshly ground black pepper and chilli flakes. To get some variation, I sometimes add coconut cream and curry or white wine and garlic.
94) Jenna Kvidt from http://wanderthemap.com/
My last meal would have to be ramen from Japan. I’ve always been a fan of ramen–not the kind that comes in a package but the kind that has been slow-cooked and crafted by hand. We tried bowl after bowl throughout different regions of Japan and my favorite has to be tonkotsu ramen–it’s simple, delicious and warms you up from the inside out!
95) Lauren Manuel from http://thetravelmanuel.com/
When it comes to last earthly meals, there are far too many to mention but almost all come from my mother’s kitchen. One of my favourites would be a classic lamb shank with mash potato and steamed vegetables. And the other would be an all-time favourite of South Africans: a braai. This is our version of a BBQ ( plus it’s way better), we usually braai lamb chops, beef boerewors ( sausage) and serve it with potato salad and garlic bread. Winner meals before the world ends for sure.
96) Liz Stark from http://www.flyisabella.com/
I love alfresco dining and the farm-to-plate movement. Brooklyn Grange owns two fabulous roof top farms in New York. Their commercial operation is hugely inspiring and brings a lot of positive benefits to the community. I hope some day I can enjoy one of their creative roof top feasts. They sell out in seconds! I’d invite my family and closest friends. We’d dine on fresh organic dishes under the stars with the Manhattan skyline as our backdrop.
97) Andrew and Emily from http://www.alongdustyroads.com/
We’d actually opt to enjoy the simplicity of fried fish – caught that morning – rice, plantains and a selection of homemade salsas, served on a rickety table by a woman with wrinkled skin and twinkle in her eye in a little town nestled between the Colombian desert and sea. To drink? A cold, illegally imported bottle of Venezuelan beer would be essential to ward off the stifling heat in this part of South America. Simplicity, happiness and honest food in a place which holds many happy memories for us.
98) Corinne McDermott from http://havebabywilltravel.com/
We just returned from a trip to the Orlando, Florida area, and funnily enough we ate what I would definitely consider a last meal-worthy dish. At Madd Jack’s BBQ in Cocoa Beach, Florida we ordered the Locos Nachos with Pulled Pork and was it ever amazing! We went for the double cheese (shredded cheddar AND liquid cheese) and I can definitely say it was super tasty, if not super healthy. I am usually not a pulled pork person, as I usually find it too “sauce-y,” but Madd Jack’s BBQ’s is just tender and delicious–not overly sauced at all.
99) Ted Nelson from http://travelingted.com/
If the world would be ending soon, I would jump a plane and fly to Trinidad & Tobaggo. The street food scene on this Caribbean island is phenomenal and rivals any country that I have visited. I would start with a couple of doubles, which are like a burrito, but filled with local spices and peppers including cumin, minced garlic, curry powder, and onions. It is a delicious ball of flavor. Then I would enjoy a bake and shark sandwich with some corn soup. A bake and shark sandwich is fried shark with your choice of fixings.
100) Rijal Fahmi Mohamadi from http://catperku.com/
It would be Kaledo! Kaledo is made from Kaki Lembu Donggala. This is is a traditional cow’s trotters soup served in spicy broth, special food from Donggala regency, Central Sulawesi, Indonesia. I ate this food once in Palu, and after that I just can’t forget these delicacies.
101) Marcello Arrambide from http://wanderingtrader.com/
I would like to start with a salad and avocado from Colombia. Followed by a King Crab from Ushuaia, Argentina served with sushi from Japan. During the meal the water would be from the foothills of the Swiss Mountains, without gas, and the coffee would be from Ethiopia but served in Italian style. The desert of course with be Nutella from France and Tiramisu. Delicia.
102) Maureen Ow from https://www.misstamchiak.com
Singapore has recently launched our inaugural Michelin Guide, highlighting the best places to hole up and indulge in the world’s most highly rated city for gastronomy. Two street food vendors (hawkers) are awarded 1-star. My last meal will be minced pork noodles at Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles, one of the street food vendors who was awarded 1-star. Singapore’s minced pork noodles is served with minced meat, pork slices, pork liver and stewed sliced mushrooms. Only available in Singapore, we can eat this for breakfast, lunch or dinner! One and only stall in a coffeeshop, Hill Street Tai Hwa’s noodles is cooked till perfect – al dante and springy. Tossed in chilli and vinegar, there is a robust mix of savoriness, spiciness and tanginess with fresh pork ingredients. Now that they are in Michelin’s coveted list, it means the queue may get longer but it’s totally worth it!

103) Karianne & Fabio from http://thegoodglobe.com/
We absolutely love Japan, so it would have to be a dish from there, but which one to go for is a tough choice. As a joint decision we’d have to go for a katsu dish served with rice, shredded cabbage with dressing, pickles and miso soup. That way my husband can have the traditional pork version, while I can go for the delicious vegetarian versions like aubergine or sweet potato. This would be washed down with some green tea or a Japanese beer.
104) Niina from http://www.bizarreglobehopper.com/
I’d yearn for a candlelit bush dinner in Africa and my all time favorite, beef tenderloin with grilled vegetables. Royal Zambezi Lodge in Zambia conjured up some of the most delicious meals we’ve ever had. We arrived there after traveling straight for 10 hours and were treated by a five-star steak dinner under the starry skies. I’d love to repeat that joy! Elephants cross the grounds frequently, so we got used to staring at them while dining, which multiplied the delight.
