I've eaten at a lot of fine restaurants. I've had foams, froths, and brulee's and I've drunk Dom Perignon, 100 year old port, and 40 year old scotch.
But the best thing I've ever had was from a street cart vendor in New York City. It was one of the first times I'd been in the city on my own (I think it was the Saturday after a week of work there). I hadn't really seen New York, so I walked half the length of the island and back on Broadway, taking in the atmosphere. It was Spring, the day was sunny, and by the time I hit Houston street, I was ravenous.
I bought a souvlaki from an elaborate cart run by a slight Middle-Eastern man who had very little hair and a goatee. I was a little concerned by the appearance of the cart, and wondered just how sanitary it was to cook all day outside on a city street.
The scent from the skewers were amazing, and my hunger quickly overcame my better judgment. I'm glad it did, because when I bit into the spiced smoky meat I was in heaven. I tried another one the next day from another vendor, but it just wasn't the same. Cervantes was right when he said "Hunger is the best sauce."
So what's the best single thing you've ever eaten and what were the circumstances? Tell us in the Comments.
