Thanks to buddy and marygabucan for helping me realize that I needed to add comments to the list.

Ooh.. I'm going to clone this and keep track of which I've tried. Great list!

Bon Appétit!

Great list, but what in the world is Doro Wat?

Doro wat is an Ethiopian dish featuring very tender chicken cooked with onions and strong spices, like cardamom and chili. You should be able to google up a recipe if you're curious. If you ever visit an African restaurant, I highly recommend it.

I'll eat at Penny's restaurant, any time.

Pull up a seat and have a cup of chai!

Ohhh you like LOTS of yummy stuff! And I always wondered what Chess Pie was! The only reason I don't like pecan pie is the pecans... that brown sugary stuff is DELISHHHH. And SUSHI -- I could live on that alone! *tummy growl*

I've never had Beef Wellington :(

Cajun coconut shrimp sounds delightful.

Beef Wellington is an elegant 1960s holiday or dinner party dish (although I’m fairly sure it originated in the 19th century). I’d love to make it some Christmas, although the recipe looks utterly exhausting. On New Years my family always has shrimp for some nutty reason, so it’s funny that you mentioned that, too.
