I ate an oyster straight of the rocks of a beach on Waiheke Island, in New Zealand after hiking around the island. Being able to eat something so fresh and clean, that needed absolutely nothing added just can't be beat.

I'd been working way too hard on my honors thesis in college and Meg made me dinner and brought it to me.
It was a chicken split breast oven baked with butter, olive oil and some spices. It was the single most savory piece of chicken in history. Being Meg, no recipe was followed or written. Never been able to duplicate that chicken again. There should have been a monument in that quad.

...the best thing I ever ate was a kebab at the end of a night of heavy drinking.
Possibly the worst thing I ever ate was a very similar kebab when I was sober!

The one and only time I ever successfully fished: rainbow trout from the Rio Grande in New Mexico. Christmas vacation, 1000 miles from home, 15 degrees out, and every time I threw in my line I caught a trout. Ever an optimist I had a one-use disposable grill in the trunk of my car...and a tiny bottle of EVOO, S & P, lemons, and two red bell peppers. An incredible feast ensued.

My grandmother's cream of mushroom soup, made with a duck base. Absolutely the most sublime dish I've ever eaten - even as a child I recognised that it was genius.
Oh, and a mango fed to me by well-meaning friends when I was in the middle of an emotional crisis and hadn't eaten in over a week. (Thanks to Steve and Chloe!)

In a small town in the czech republic i visited a local flavor resturant. I ordered smoked pigglet and was greeted with an odd plate with little meat and alot of fat. I soon learned those strips of fat were pigglet bacon. With only a thin layer of skin and a very soft fat, the pigglet bacon's fat almost melted in my mouth and the skin disolved with a gentle rubbing on the roof of my mouth. I know my sister and barret have sworn off most meats, and are unlikly to make an exception for baby pig, but is truly is amazing.
