The "Foodie" in all of us...


So during the off season I've been watching many channels and shows. One of the two channels I just can't help watch or rather the show is, The Best Thing I Ever Ate on the Food Network.

So I didn't know if anyone made a map of all of the restaurants. So I thought I'd share it with you all. There are places all over and it's from the people that have shows on Food Network or appeared on the network.

I'm dying to try some of these places while on the road.

It's a pretty good show. I enjoy Diners, Drive Ins, even though Guy Fieri comes across as somewhat of a douche. Though he is local, I hate to rip him. I am always looking for nice places to eat. PBS has some great cooking shows on Sat.'s but as we all know, our Sat.'s will be used watching other things more important, like baseball. I enjoy cooking alot so I am always watching shows on cooking

It's been a while since I've watched Food Network, but that show is the best food show I've ever seen. I love it. I got sucked in flipping channel late one night.

I love that the places are all over the map. I want to go eat crab cakes at that joint that DiLaurentis went to in Seattle. Looks awesome.

I also like how Tyler Florence chose Hog Island Oysters and they actually went out to Tomales Bay and showed how they grow em.

More on the Food Science rather than Foodie end of the spectrum, I've come to love the show Food Tech. I think it's on the History Channel. Shows how they make some products. Part "How it's Made" and part "Good Eats."

I like Diners Drive Inn and Dives. Travel channel and their (insert food item) Paradise and found Food Tech on History. Any thing that tells you what's good is worth trying. Sometimes Guy's places are a let down. Been to a few and they were a dud (nothing special). The best find and Merkin would back it 110% is Super Dawg in Chicago. Found that place from Travel Channel and it was Hot Dog Paradise.

Re: …


The Diners, Drive-ins and Dives they did in Portland was AWESOME.

They chose really good places. A couple of them were some of my favorite places to eat on the planet earth.

Chef, I saw that episode too wth Tyler going to Tomales Bay. And those oysters are damn good. One thing about the Bay Area is that we have so many choices of great places to eat.

Yup.

Portland is the same way. I miss both places horribly. Been here in Bumfuck, OR for the past six months.

It's not even teh fancy stuff I miss. I miss getting a good sandwich or being to find quality cheap ethnic, like Ethiopian or Thai. Or being able to get some nice salami or a loaf of good bread.

I love food. And great restaurants. One of the things I do when I go places is try to find the "best" restaurant. I have hit some homers and struck out on a few as well. I regularly consult the food channel and most of the shows that you guys are talking about.

Some of my [sign in to see URL] in [sign in to see URL]' incredible food and service. Maestros in Scottsdale (there are others as well), Cafe 222 in San Diego (still the best breakfast I have ever had). Jeffreys Burgers in San Mateo. (I LOVE THIS PLACE).....
