Okay, this one's amusing enough to play with. Taken from lots of people, but I think goldsquare first. Oh, and in the course of looking these things up, I stumbled across the site that this seems to be lifted from: the BBC's "50 things to eat before you die".

1. Fresh fish -- Depending slightly on your definition of "fresh", but I assume "on the pier, recently off the boat" counts.
2. Lobster
3. Steak
4. Thai food
5. Chinese food
6. Ice cream
7. Pizza
8. Crab
9. Curry
10. Prawns
11. Moreton Bay Bugs
12. Clam chowder
13. Barbecues
14. Pancakes
15. Pasta
16. Mussels
17. Cheesecake
18. Lamb
19. Cream tea -- Hmm. I'm not 100% sure I've had scones with clotted cream, and I don't think I've ever sat down and done this properly. (It sounds like proper cream tea is all about the properly-constructed meal.) So I'll count this as a "no".
20. Alligator -- I think the answer is yes, in a more complex dish. But I'm not completely sure.
21. Oysters -- Once, as sushi. Once was enough.
22. Kangaroo
23. Chocolate
24. Sandwiches
25. Greek food -- Not really my cuisine of choice, but I've had a bit.
26. Burgers
27. Mexican food
28. Squid -- Mmm; squid. (One of my favorite sushi varieties.)
29. American diner breakfast -- Pancakes and greasy bacon. Nothing quite like it.
30. Salmon
31. Venison -- At several SCA events.
32. Guinea pig
33. Shark -- I have a vague inkling that I've tried it, but I'm not sure.
34. Sushi
35. Paella -- A relatively recent discovery (past few years), but I've found that I adore it when well-made, abundant with a riot of random seafood.
36. Barramundi
37. Reindeer
38. Kebab
39. Scallops
40. Australian meat pie
41. Mango
42. Durian fruit -- The BBC description includes "it's also notorious for emitting a pungent, 'distinctive' odour (think clogged drains in August)"
43. Octopus -- Almost as good as squid
44. Ribs
45. Roast beef
46. Tapas -- Discovered the same day I first tried paella. Wonderful stuff, but I want a better option than Solea, which is a smidgeon over-expensive and was only good.
47. Jerk chicken/pork
48. Haggis -- Not 100% certain, but I believe I tried it at the Glasgow Worldcon ten years ago.
49. Caviar
50. Cornish Pasty -- Somehow, ending with madamebuttery's specialty just seems somehow appropriate. My favorite Pennsic lunch for several years...
