Thanks for all the responses! I really appreciate it! What kind of dishes have you guys tried while travelling? Any special stuff (not necessarily nasty) from foreign countries?

My favorite from my travels are fish and chips from London, and Jambalaya from New Orleans.

It's really good to see fish and chips up there.

The best fish and chips are from seaside places where its obviously fresher. Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast is to be good for fish and chips. And its in a lovely part of the world. And British chip-shop chips are so different from fries.

You really need mushy peas with your fish and chips. They don't do them in London or down south.

I heard they eat mushy peas in Australia. With meat pies. (good combination) Is this so?

They do. I saw a stereotype bushman digging into a plate of pie and peas on Globetrekker. Thats a great show by the way, except Ian Wright can be a pain in the arse. Meagan McCormick is mint though.

Mushy lumpy bright green yumminess... I hadn't seen mushy peas until I moved from London to "up North" as a kiddie. I thought they looked revolting and didn't try them for years. Then I realised what I'd been missing. Yum.

Hey Joe, I love the use of the word "mint" like that. Everyone who was anyone said it in my primary school. Example from 1989: "Kylie and Jason are mint"

Then it kind of disappeared. With a bit of work we could maybe re-introduce it, like a rare bird.

Aye, my pals at home always use it, just to describe anything thats top-of-the-tree quality. You were obviously ahead of the game at primary school!

Top of the tree... another good one! We actually use gold in the same way you use mint. But mint reminds me of chocolate so I like it better! Hmm... I think I'm hungry for some chocolate...
