Spring Giveaway!

I'm giving away a one year membership to Zagat.com! All you have to do is leave a comment answering the following question: If you had to eat the same meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? And no topping changes or condiment switches. If you choose a double cheeseburger and fries it can't be with mayo one day and pickles the next. The winner will be chosen at random on Saturday, May 2. The winner will have 48 hours to contact me with their home address, or I'll pick someone else who is more attentive to their inbox.

Zagat.com has much more than restaurant reviews and searches. The site (which is mobile phone enabled for all you Blackberry and iPhone addicts) boasts discussion boards, nightspot, hotel and attraction guides, as well as menus and virtual tours.

I would eat burritos for the rest of my life. Shredded chicken, black beans, tomatoes, sour cream, cilantro, and hot sauce wrapped in a grilled flour tortilla. I'm go glad I grew up in Mexico Southern California.

Good Luck!

Dolmas made from my grandmother's Lebanese kitchen (this means hot, not cold dolmas), cucumber/yogurt/mint sauce with pita for dipping bread and a side of rice--lots and lots of rice.

I can taste it now.

My choice would be a poor man's dish from my family's village in China. Steamed fermented shrimp paste with pork belly and thinly sliced ginger and a bowl of rice. This dish reminds me of my childhood.

I would have a mozarella cheese quesadilla lightly fried. Nothing like fried fat and carbs!

Ohhh. . . this is pretty hard for me. I am torn between 1)a simple cheeseburger with fries and 2) a salad with mixed spring greens, blue cheese, dried cranberries, candied walnuts and a tasty vinagrette. . .

I think I'm going to have to go with the latter. Since I can't have blue cheese right now (pregnant) it is probably the one thing in the world I want to eat the most!

I think it would either be a Cemita al pastor (spicy pork sandwich with avocado, whole chipotle, queso fresco, and pineapple slices on a hard sesame roll) from the taco truck on 14th st and 8th avenue, or the stuffed eggplant parmigiano from a (no longer existing) hole-in-the-wall italian restaurant in North Hollywood California called Sabatino's that my Dad took me to once a week starting when I was 5 years old. I used to order one for eating in the restaurant, and one to take home for the next day.

I love me some cemitas (which is my new weekly tradition), but I think the eggplant gets my official vote based on nostalgia and overall unquestionable deliciousness.

Taco dip & chips, but only how my mother makes it -- blend of sour cream, cream cheese & a bit o' lemon juice, with salsa, fresh romaine lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and a hefty layer of freshly grated cheddar.

No taco seasoning or ground beef or olives or any of that -- just the spread and fresh veggies. It is to die for.
