So Alli_oop, aka THE DEVIL started this post about all the foods from her past that she would want near her in her current situation of being a hospital scutmonkey. Now I want to make my own list. Not only because I want to show off and brag about all the cool places I've been, but also because I'm only good at plagiarizing other people's post ideas as opposed to coming up with anything novel myself. Also, I friggin' love fooooood. So let me continue my list from her comments section.
Fresh baguette from anywhere in FRANCE
Fish and chips from this one corner place on Tottenham Court Road and Great Russell Street, London, UK
BBQ chicken jacket potato from the British Museum Cafe, London, UK

Grilled cheese, pear, prosciutto & pesto with tomato soup, Red Stripe Bistro, Providence, RI
ANYTHING from Bouley and his many permutations, NYC
