100 Heavenly Dishes in the World

I received an amazing scratch-off poster for my birthday this year called “100 Heavenly Dishes in the World.” Since I’d eaten about half of them already, I figured it would be fun to try the rest. I made them all at home because of the lack of international restaurants in my town. I’ve provided ratings and links to the recipes. If the recipe doesn’t have a link, then I tried it in a restaurant. There are some things that I’ll only eat in restaurants (like sashimi).

the completed poster!

Ratings Key

1 star: Gross. I never want to eat this again.

2 stars: I’d eat it if served to me, but I don’t care for it.

3: It was pretty good, but it didn’t stand out.

4: Loved it! I’d definitely eat it again.

5: This is going in our regular rotation. I like it enough to pay for it at a restaurant.
