Best National Dish in the World
Halibutboy Flatface stashed this in Eat drink party
I sense some first-world bias here...
The US cheeseburger is #2?!
2. USA - Hamburger
What it is: All that is good in the world
Why it placed where it did: Whether fancified and topped with an aioli you cannot pronounce or just a simple American cheese masterpiece, burgers are the lifeblood of America, and there are few things in life as pleasurable as the first bite of a burger as the juices of the patty, the crunch of pickle, the smoky, sweetness of caramelized onion, and the tang of cheese meld into… whoa. Wait. Sorry we just blacked out for a second.
Iceland, no. I would hakhurl.
What it is: Fermented shark
Why it placed where it did: Sharks in the movies seem to have a big appetite for people, but the reciprocal isn't really true; Anthony Bourdain tried this stuff -- rotten, fermented shark -- and said it's the worst thing he's ever eaten. And that dude's eaten raw seal eyeball. And probably a lot of other things that weren't on his show.
LOL at "man eating shark" ...
