Recently the Houston Press published a list of 100 foods that ‘Foodies’ should try before they die, after a different list was doing the rounds on Facebook. Some of the things in both lists are truly wonderful food, but some are really only there to be as outrageous as possible. I’m all for being adventurous and trying new and unusual food, but there are things in this world that apart from the bragging rights for trying something like Hakarl, it would never be something you would want again and again, which is my definition of a food that should be in a top 100 list of foods to try before you die. A better way to think about this sort of list, is what 100 foods would you try if you only had 100 days left to live. I think the lists would be very different.
How many foods from these lists have you tried, and do you have your own list of 100 foods or drinks that you want to try before you die?
