94 for me! I think I ate my way through southeast Asia... My goal is to get Chicken & Waffles and Philly Cheese Steak in before July.

And when did you eat squirrel??

Cari,

Wow! 94 is amazing! Remember that I grew up in rural NW Ohio, my uncles would go squirrel hunting....tastes like dark meat chicken :)

54 for me. I guess its time to try some new restaurants! Two I will NOT try: Durian - I saw this fruit in the markets in Malyasia, they smell like rotting flesh. Haggis - absolutely not... Thanks for the entertainment!
