1. Horsemeat (Iceland, Antwerp)- Don't scowl, it's delicious. Lean with a nice nutty flavor. My favorite meat.
2. Black Pudding (Ireland)- Don't ask what it is, just eat it at breakfast. Nice delicious smoky flavor goes great with eggs.
3. Smorrebrod or Open Faced Sandwiches (Denmark)- Sandwich is not exactly the term I would use, as the one piece of hearty bread just acts like a plate for heapings of a variety of goodness: Shrimp, lamb, fish, anything really.
4. Reindeer Dog (Bergen, Norway)- Much longer and tastier than the traditional hot dog. Healthier too. Scandinavians sure like their "dogs"
5. Tapas (Seville)- Small inexpensive plates of local foods. You can get seafood, pork, chicken, anything really. Grab a few and get a nice sampling of Andalucian cuisine. Drink with a local wine.
6. Pinchos (San Sebastian, Madrid)- Kind of a cross between tapas and smorrebrod. Bread is the plate, drink with local wine.
7. Burek (Slovenia)- Phyllo Dough stuffed with sheeps cheese and either meat, spinach, apples, or sauerkraut. Great for breakfast or lunch.
8. Goedda (Cincinatti)- Grain and pork in a kind of loose sausage and fried. Yum yum! Some people compare it to Scrapple. Ignore those people.
9. Wild Boar Shin (Venice, Germany)- Pork on steroids, and oh so tender. Falls right of the bone. Give horsemeat a run for its money as my favorite meat.
10 Paski Sir or Pag Cheese (Croatia)- Delicious and rare mild sheeps cheese with a slightly herbal flavor and dribbled with olive oil. Awesome appetizer. Great with white wine.
