    However, any list that does not include duck confit is clearly not worth the time it took to compile.....
    I was going to say pretty much the same thing. First of all, good Massaman is hard to find even in Thailand. Yes, it's a curry type food but I agree it's weird and lazy that they didn't mention one actual Indian curry. There could easily be five of those on that list.
    Can't disagree about duck confit either.
    Of course, any list of 50 is going to leave hundreds of arguably better dishes to many out.

    Coming to mind --

    Massaman? It's nice but reminds me too much of Burmese oil curries. Now, a good southern Thai jungle curry is different! It's a TC says, entirely subjective. Huge swathes of Indian, Chinese and Middle Eastern dishes are absent.

    Maybe the trend of choice was to omit third world countries.

    Bolivia likely won't win any prizes. OK, the siete lunares joints in Sucre have decent chorizo, but other than that...not a lot to get excited about on the Altiplano.

    Buttered toast with Marmite? I never put butter on toast.
    Real. Butter. Only. Nice with marvegemite. Good bread a requirement too.

    But buttered popcorn? I ask you. And massaman does not come from Thailand- it is Malay. The donuts shown I wouldn't touch with yours. And aussie style chicken parmi? Cheap pub grub. Ketchup- well it's certainly ubiquitous, but give me HP sauce anytime.

    Not one lamb dish either. Reckon I could have compiled a better list meself.

    ^^ At least they've got Lechon Grace. Would've liked to see Bicol Express too!

    But for any serious foodie, it's a meaningless list.

    ...I wonder which members of the "CNN travel staff" actually "scoured the world" for their recommendations: white folks all? A few Asians?...the ethnicity of the writers may have played a role in their selections...

    If you take the time to read the original article, and I recommend you don't bother, you can enjoy a large picture of some rice with the caption "Rice, a common factor in many dishes". I begin to understand the mentality of the suicide bomber...







    To say nothing of the "juicy handburger" which I seem to have been the only person unfortunate enough to notice.

    It's there...at number 27 on the list.

    No oysters though or crying lamb and no foie gras, which would be on my list...

    Maybe his list of the world's 50 most delicious drinks will go over better.

    I just read the OP link.

    Good topic: food.

    Ketchup #39?

    Hell no.

    Lots of good foods listed.

    It is....a 'travel' link.

    Seriously, I think one of the best food out of many are eggs. Yes, eggs.
