Being the end of the year this should be a post of things gone past. An attempt to delve back into those tastes I want to remember and a punishment of the ones I want to forget. Except I’m greedy and am more interested with what’s next and how I can best develop gout.
So forget the memories and let’s look forward. This is where I want to eat next year:
Penang in Malaysia – comments on previous posts have driven me slightly food feverish about I place I had barely heard of before.
Taipei in Taiwan – for my first visit to the Republic of China and not the People’s Republic of China. Apparently many of the Mainland’s best chefs fled there so the food is meant to be pretty heady. It also is apparently great as a base for kitesurfing.
Seoul in South Korea – it seems to be one of the cities the future will be created as it is where a lot of young, educated people are. I can’t wait to cycle around it and eat. I just need to find a guide.
North Korea – for the mass games though this looks slightly unlikely given the current succession issues. The food could be “historic” as well.
Okinawa in Japan – to backpack, eat and feel at peace.
Bangkok in Thailand – for the ultimate place to taste the combination of sweet, salt and acid.
Thanks to everyone for reading and helping me compile the above. I look forward to eating with some of you in the New Year. Let me know what you are excited about next year.
PS if you are curious my list of the best of for last year is pretty easy:
