A Pacific Northwest Foodie's List of Top 50 Foods You Should Try

Bold the ones you've eaten, even if it was just a bite; italicize those you haven't eaten but want to try; strikethrough anything you have no interest in ever trying.

1. Fresh asparagus
2. Wild mushrooms (fresh or dried)
3. Sashimi (raw fish)
4. Arugula

5. Romanesco broccoli - Don't know if I've had this or not.
6. Beefsteak tomatoes
7. Wild trout I'm very fussy about fish, and trout isn't on the list.
8. Meyer lemons
9. Eggplant
10. Tempura
11. Tillamook cheese

12. Willipaw Bay oysters
13. Marionberries
14. Chocolate with more than 70 percent cocoa solids
15. Free-trade, organically grown coffee
(bonus points if it's from Coffee People)
16. Quince
17. Almond Roca
18. Applets & Cotlets
19. Lemon grass (fresh, used in any recipe)

20. Fresh habañero peppers
21. Chipotles
22. Pico de gallo

23. Velveeta fudge (Euw?)
24. Scrapple (Don't know)
25. Creme fraiche (bonus points if you made it yourself)

32. Taro root

34. A Bloomin' Onion
(Overrated, in my opinion)
35. Leeks
36. Sea urchin (uni)
(I was tricked into eating it, and I will never eat it again. Why someone would eat something that tastes like dirty, ground-up gym socks is beyond me.)
37. Aioli
38. Quinoa
39. Risotto (But I don't care for it. It's a texture thing.)
40. Polenta (See Risotto.)
41. Whole fresh cranberries
42. An authentic Philly cheese steak

43. Malt-O-Meal (I dunno if I want to try it or not.)
