Nicole’s Food Heaven

This is an incomplete, disorganized list of the foods and dishes that exist in my own personal food heaven. Some I have blogged about, some I haven’t.

The first question I get when I tell someone that I have a food blog is almost always “What’s your favorite restaurant?” But asking a food blogger “What’s your favorite restaurant?” is like asking a PhD candidate to briefly describe their thesis. Cuisine? Location? Price range? Time of year? I can go on, and on, and on, and …

Since I can never choose a “favorite” but do want to answer the question, I usually pick items from two or three restaurants on this list and describe them in detail. There is no other reason that this list has been moved outside of my mind and onto the Internet. Enjoy!
