The Omnivore’s Hundred

The Omnivorve’s Hundred lists out 100 things a omnivorve must try at least once. I tried 35 dishes out of 100. Needs improvement, I think. 

Though I think that most dishes listed are rather skewed towards the European and American cuisine. Where’s the Kimchi, live octopus and fermented beancurd??!!

Instructions:

  • Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
  • Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
  • Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.
