The 100 list

The Foodies "100" lists…Part I – Vegetarian

Have you ever seen those lists floating around on various food blogs that ask you to score yourself on what you’ve eaten? It’s kind of fun to take a look, and surprisingly, I didn’t do so badly in each of the three categories.

In each list, there are 100 dishes that people who consider themselves as foodies should have tried at least once in their lives. Each list may include fine food, strange food, everyday food and in some cases, bad food. The deal is that you have to BOLD off the ones on the list that you have tried, cross off items that you would never even consider eating, and then make plans to eat the rest. Sounds like a great challenge to me!

Now since the lists are quite long, I’m going to do this as a series of posts…so, let’s begin 🙂

About Eunice

I'm just a girl who is passionate about food. It is my personal quest to try to expand my culinary horizons both at home and abroad. However, I was not always passionate about food. I had my epiphany much later when I got my very first job...at a sushi joint here in town. And just like that "Hook, line and sinker"...a foodie was born! I'm a P/T blogger, P/T yogini...but always a foodie.
