Fifty Things to Eat Before You Die

Was sent the BBC's list of 50 things to eat before you die - seems like not that new a list, but anyway it was fun to look through it (even some choices were really boring - I love pizza and burgers, but they seem so ubiquitous that to put them on a "things to eat before you die" list seems odd)... so, italicising what I haven't had, it looks like 46 down, 4 to go...

1 Fresh fish
2 Lobster
3 Steak
4 Thai food
5 Chinese food
6 Ice cream
7 Pizza
8 Crab
9 Curry
10 Prawns
11 Moreton Bay Bugs
12 Clam chowder
13 Barbecues
14 Pancakes
15 Pasta
16 Mussels
17 Cheesecake
18 Lamb
19 Cream tea
20 Alligator
21 Oysters
22 Kangaroo
23 Chocolate
24 Sandwiches
25 Greek food
26 Burgers
27 Mexican food
28 Squid
29 American diner breakfast - one of my great favourites
30 Salmon
31 Venison
32 Guinea pig
33 Shark - unfortunately - I won't touch it again, ever
34 Sushi
35 Paella
36 Barramundi
37 Reindeer
38 Kebab
39 Scallops
40 Australian meat pie
41 Mango
42 Durian fruit
43 Octopus
44 Ribs
45 Roast beef
46 Tapas
47 Jerk chicken/pork - although, interestingly, never with the Jamaican relatives
48 Haggis
49 Caviar
50 Cornish pasty



I'm not sure listing whole cuisines (Thai food, Chinese food, Mexican food etc) count as _a thing_ - I mean, there are tons of "things" to eat within that one item alone......

Dude...you've had haggis?!


Agreed - but well, that's how the public voted. And yes, I had haggis in Scotland, back when I was 14 or so...
