    Thought this was an interesting article in smh.com.au
    http://blogs.smh.com.au/travel/archives/2010/04/where_to_find_the_perfect_meal.html

    What would you consider your Top 5 perfect meals?
    Links or photos if you have 'em.

    5. Ryo's Noodles - Crow's Nest
    Best ramen in Sydney! I'm hooked and try to be there once a week.

    4. Papaya Hot Dog - New York
    Delicious dogs and fantastic juice.

    3. Baguette - Champ Elysee, Paris
    Can't find a link to this one on Champ Elysee.
    For 5 EURO, the most glorious chicken baguette, cold OJ and coffee eclair

    2. Fish and Chips - Tower of London
    Just outside the tower of London. It was very cold day but for 5 Pounds, I got a local beer and the largest fish and chips I've ever ended. Glorious!

    1. Char Kway Teow, Penang - Malaysia
    Pure perfection! This tastes so good and there's a certain nostalgia associated with Malaysian cooking for me.

    I was so hungry writing that post!

    Love to hear any contribution you may have.
    It doesn't have to be the most expensive but just most memorable.

    I find Gumshara a little too thick for my liking (but that's just me).

    Not in any particular order:

    (1) Fry up - bacon, eggs, beans, fried potatoes, toast, fried tomato
    (2) Lamb roast with mint sauce
    (3) Pork roast with apple sauce
    (4) Chilli Con Carne
    (5) Tiki Marsala curry

    Makes my mouth water just listing them.

    meals i can prepare at home:

    1) Garlic prawn, avocado, bacon and chilli peanut pizza - on a home made base = pure WIN
    2) Spaghetti Bolognese - a staple for most households
    3) Fried rice - too easy Campese, and so tasty
    4) Roast lamb + roast veges - who doesn't love a bit of lamb?
    5) Caeser salad - choc full of bacon, home made croutons and WIN

    meals when i'm out and about:

    1) Hot chips - whatever, whenever, wherever. even if they're bad, they're still good. plenty of chicken salt, and sometimes gravy :thumbup:
    2) Combination hor fun (rice noodles) - at my local chinese is the best ever
    3) Pizza and pasta - Big Johns in Sans Souci, massive servings, love it
    4) Yum cha - sit down and you're eating within 60 seconds
    5) T-Bone steak w/ chips - medium rare please, and plenty of gravy on the chips!

    i am now salivating :(

    Char Kway Teow in Penang is damn near perfect. Went to Sister's CKT and it was sublime. Even the hotel CKT was pretty good, the chef made it to order at the breakfast buffet :thumbup:

    I'd say the juices in Rio are perfect, as are the empanadas, from this one shop near the Vermont Hotel in Ipanema.

    Shrimp Ceviche from the waterfront restaurant in the port at Valparaiso in Chile was pretty close too!

    Papaya Hot Dog, or any NY hot dog is pretty crap.

    Chicago hot dog is better.

    but they are two totally different beasts. Dirty Water Hot Dogs are good, then Chicago Hot Dogs, one dog is a full meal on itself!

    o the decisions!!!

    - Chicken kebabs (the ones on the skewers) with peanut satay sauce from a road side vendor in Bali
    - My mums beef stroganoff :D
    - Chips and gravy from Kingston TAFE in Adelaide. Best EVAR.
    - Venison, roasted in a Weber barbecue.
    - The steak I had at Cafe 29 in Ballina. The stars were in alignment and my sock matched, and it was the best steak I've had to date.

    Sushi with Raw Salmon/avocado/what ever sauce they put in there, or crispy chicken with lettuce. Could eat this all day.

    Subway Meatball footlong with olives, onions, lettuce, tomatoe, salt on italian herbs and cheese bread.

    KFC regular twisters.

    Pizza hut super supreme pizza + vegetarian pizza.

    BBQ pork.
