Have You Ever Been on a Food Quest?

Recently my dad has been on a quest to find the best Joe's Special in the Bay Area. He's determined to try every brunch place that serves the scramble until he finds the most delicious one. I don't think he's silly or even crazy, because I've been on many a food quest, so how about you? Have you ever wanted to try every restaurant until you've found that one perfect dish?

Hell yes, I'm on a food quest! I'm seeking out the very best tiramisu. The site "Heavenly Tiramisu" fed my obsession. I call my quests "Tiramissions!" So far I've only tried about thirteen different versions and I've been fixated with it for about two years. Kentucky doesn't offer a lot of 'misu. =( I'm pretty picky about them too. I want real mascarpone, lady fingers, and expresso! AND THE BOOZIER THE BETTER! The sad thing is, it's easy to get a god-awful tiramisu. Some are frozen and have ice shards, some use jello pudding instead of mascarpone, cake instead of ladyfingers...and the cream-to-cookie ratio has got to be just right...ahhh! Fortunately the best I've had is a local restaurant. They're only open four days a week and a small cup is over six bucks...but I've got to get my fix, at least once weekly. =( A girl there doesn't even have to ask what I want any more. She knows I just want tiramisu, to go. I dream about tiramisu. It's really sad.

I am a Cali girl and am def on the quest for great French Onion Soup- when I go to Italian restaurants I often order the plain ole spaghetti and meatballs cuz if they can't do that right.. the rest of the food prob isn't that great either. I also love good Pho (vietnamese) and Mexican! You disappoint me once.. I'll never go back!

The most recent quest was for an In-n-Out burger imposter south of Denver. The menu was very similar with a little bit of the wording tweaked.

Oh I go on quests all the time! Sometimes they are to find who has the best of something: Best chicken lettuce wraps, best moroccan cuisine, best cupcakes, best french bread! And sometimes my quests are to find a place that makes something really specific: a perfect french pastry filled with chocolate bits and pastry cream :)

A GOOD Italian Beef here in the Bay Area. After living in Chicago for a few years I miss them so. Someone told me they had found a good one in San Jose, but when I tried it it was awful. If anyone knows of a place I would love to hear it. :)

Too many to recount. Latest quest has been for the best Banh-Mi in Seattle. The vegetarian Banh-Mi made at the makeshift deli counter in a little Vietnamese market tops the charts so far.

Yes! Funnily enough I was looking for Jaffa Cakes, a british snack. there are a lot of ex-pats in Boston so I figured it wouldn't be too hard, but I was wrong! I finally got a tip from a woman in Harvard Sq to try a specific Indian/Irish grocer and I was so excited when they had them!

Best hash brown quest is a never-ending one in my life. You need different ones for different things, so it's a delicate balance of delicious!

I feel like I'm on a never ending quest for arancinis. Can never find them anywhere. Which is good I guess since 1) theyre deep fried, 2) none live up to the fresh ones in Italy.

In the Cinque Terra, Italy, I searched for pizza that was made fresh and not sold by the slice, which means it sits around under warming lamps getting soggy. And once in Paris, I got on a hamburger and pomme frites binge, looking for the perfect duo. Fixation is troublesome!

Holy shiite on a shingle! Three posts in a row from Minnysooodans! I think we deserve a prize, Yum. Might I suggest bacon? :)

Right now I'm looking for the best hanger steak in the Twin Cities. Preferably cooked medium with maître d' butter. Yum.

I'm always on a quest for Mom and Pop type independent restaurants that serve great food at a cheap price. The best burger in my area is at a Harley-ish bar, is flame broiled, perfectly seasoned, and comes in one of those cheesey plastic baskets. The decor is what I would call "Early VFW." A small price to pay, though, when your tab, with a fries and a soda, is just over 5 bucks! :)
