Wow....what a small world....I grew up in Oakville but now living in Hong Kong. I'm a regular at Joy Hing for the past 10 years and have never tried their roasted goose (always thought it was their answer to the other places famous for roast goose, nothing more)

Some strange ones for me, but my criteria was that it would have to be something I'd seek out again.

- Roast goose in Budapest (Rosenstein)
- Yakitori in Tokyo (not sure it even had a name )
- Crispy aromatic duck in London (wish I could remember the place)
- Bitterballen in Amsterdam (multiple brown cafes)
- Oysters in Portland ME, or from The Publican in Chicago
- Som Tum in Bangkok (wish I could remember the place)

During my Bahrain - I tried 'Crispy Honey Chicken' for the first time. I loved it. I tried to replicate it at home but it didn't come as tasty as I had it from Bahrain at Chilis restaurant. I will try again to cook it at home.

Wow. We have a Chili’s a couple miles from home. I have to limit what I order there due to the high caloric content of most of their food. Your fave is deep fried battered bits of chicken breast in a honey glaze. I never noticed a predominant spice so I would say try making it sweeter.

We primarily go there because it’s close, generally uncrowded and drinks are two for one.

This is common at least in the Midwest. Many in my family did it, I never saw the appeal.

One of the bad parts of travel is when you return somewhere with your mouth watering only to discover the place is gone. We had a favorite place in Munich close to the zoo, they had the best wild mushroom soup and crispy pork shoulder I've ever had. Nice people, by our third trip we were getting hugs. Tried to go recently and it was closed for good. A favorite and wildly busy Chinese restaurant in London, don't recall the name - close the the theatre district - gone. A great hole in the wall under the train tracks sort of behind the PEN in Tokyo, just gone.
