Poutine is all the rage these days, and so is pizza. Put them together, and what do you end up with? Why, poutine pizza, of course. In what may be the pinnacle of drunk munchies food, Brado Pizza in Vancouver, British Columbia, is serving a thin crust, topped with french fries, melted cheese curds, and a thick, beef-tinged brown sauce. While I've never tried poutine before, the calorically massive combo of curds, fries, and gravy doesn't intimidate me — and I love a good pie. I say bring it on! What say you?
The other day, Party asked me how I feel about eating foods that I can't identify. Since I've often found myself at food events that serve an overwhelming number of complicated bites, I do it all the time. But despite the fact that I've eaten lots of random (and unidentified) foods, there are still scores of foods I've always wanted to try but have never gotten around to sampling. Although some New York gourmands claim poutine is becoming routine, I've never had a chance to try it, so it's at the top of my list. And I've also always wanted to try belon oysters, black pudding, blowfish, boudin sausage, and wagyu beef from Kobe, Japan.
I'm sure you've got a running tab, too — so I'd love to hear it! What's on your must-try list?
