One of my favorite, most mouth-watering, questions to ask someone is: If it’s your last day on earth, what would be your last meal? There are no limitations. You can have 10 things from 10 different restaurants in the world… you can have 20 different tastes of things… you don’t have to concern yourself with fat and calories and cost… you don’t have to worry about having enough room in your stomach… you can have whatever, wherever you want.
The highly awesome Serious Eats just asked their readers that same question, this time they phrased it “What’s your ‘Death Row’ meal?” The comments were hysterical–many of the commenters appear to be my long-lost best friends, as I would love to share my ‘Death Row’ meal at their table.
So here you have it, MY last meal on earth, in no particular order. What’s yours??
Pearl Oyster Bar lobster roll with shoestring fries
One dozen raw oysters and jumbo shrimp cocktail with cocktail sauce, loaded with extra horseradish
Vietnamese fried spring rolls
Doritos, any flavor
Pepper jack macaroni & cheese
Kung Pao Chicken, extra spicy
Otto’s Escarole salad with sunchokes, cheese, and Marcona almonds
Everything bagel with scallion cream cheese and TONS of sliced tomatoes
Babbo pasta tasting menu (without dessert)
Glazed doughnuts with skim milk
Guacamole, roasted tomato salsa, and tortilla chips
Really great red wine
