My Favorite 15 Foods

Have I got food problems? Have I gone too far with this?

Check and Check.

20. Sushi
I am pretty picky with my sushi. It can be too much raw fish at times, store bought usually isn't good. But load me up with soy sauce and yum.

19. Baklava
Amazing pastry, gotta be the sweet kind though.

18. Benihana Fried Rice
Chicken Fried Rice is amazing, but at this place they do magical things to it.

17. Arby's
Ignoring all the side effects, their roast beef sandwiches are amazing, cheese sticks, curly fries and a shake are the way to go.

16. Carmel Apples
Always good, but by design always a mess.

15. Cornbread
"Cornbread! Aint nothing wrong with that." - Chris Rock

14. Pie
French Silk is my favorite, Cherry and Apple are acceptable if made correctly. Don't understand Pumpkin!

13. Calzone
Pizza pockets when I was in elementary were good even then.

12. Buffalo Wild Wings
So many sauces, most are excellent. My four favorite are Asian Zing, Parmesan Garlic, Mango Habanero and Medium.
