Many of these dishes I try to duplicate.  From vegetarian to omnivore I have come full circle and know what is good.

Hawaii (Oahu)
  1. House Without a Key, 2199 Kalia Rd, Honolulu 808-923-2311
Italy (Florence)
  • on a group trip we went to a traditional style dinner.  Baked ziti was the best with lots of herbs, tomato sauce, and cheeses.  Repeated and loved by all.
Most chefs may be trying to kill me with too large of portions, over salting, using a microwave (hard on the outside and burning on the inside), too much cheese, too much sauce, over cooking pasta, burning my mouth, too much fat/ tough meat on the huge plate, and a little bad bacteria.
These cooks or chefs did it right so praise them.
