What’s the Best Meal You’ve Ever Had?


Best Asian Food

Asking me to pick the best meal I’ve had while traveling is like asking me to pick my favourite child. I’ve had so many delicious and diverse meals in interesting places that it seems unfair to pick a favorite. Also, it’s tricky because I don’t have children.
