1. Massaman Curry, Thailand
With earlier writers from the mid-19th century calling the dish “Mussulman curry”; Mussulman being an archaic form of the word Muslim, this Thai curry is an interpretation of a Persian dish. Emphatically, Massaman curry is the king of curries and perhaps the king of all foods. Spicy, coconutty, sweet and savory, Massaman combination of flavors has more personality than a Thai election. Thankfully, someone invented rice with which diners can mop up even the last drizzle of this curry sauce.
Tastes best with: Rice and Naan.
Best Massaman curry spot: Supanniga eating room.
2. Neapolitan Pizza, Italy
Let’s face it, everyone LOVES Italian food. The best pizza was and still is the Neapolitan that insists on sea salt, high-grade wheat flour, the use of only three types of tomatoes and the strict use of a wood fired oven, among other quality stipulations. The Neapolitans created a food that only a few make properly but everyone enjoys thoroughly.

Best Neapolitan pizza spot: Pizzeria di Matteo
