Some meals really are once in a lifetime. It could be a local restaurant that stole your heart or a dish that was so good that nothing comes close. A user on a popular internet forum asked: “What’s the best meal you ever had that you will probably never get to have again?” Here are the top responses.
Foods You’re Now Allergic To
This adventurous foodie shared: “Scallops. They were incredibly delicious. Sautéed with garlic and butter, perfectly cooked, melt-in-your-mouth.
Unfortunately, that’s how I found out I was allergic to shellfish. So I won’t ever be having them again. Unless I’m ready to die.”
Family Recipes from Deceased Relatives
This nostalgic foodie shared: “For me its because the people who made them are no longer alive. but my grandparents food simple Mexican food that no matter how hard I try to recreate will never have the same taste or smell. And every bite filled you with an internal warmth that just made you feel like you were some important being idk how to explain it. Even breakfast tacos i remember waking up two hours before school to go sell them and his home made salsa everyday. simple times.”
A Once in a Lifetime Chef Experience
This traveling foodie shared: “I went on a fishing trip with my brother and a couple friends down to Marathon in the Florida Keys. We took our boat, stayed in a tent in this campground, and there was a restaurant there with a Cajun chef."
One day we had a pretty good haul. Spanish Mackerel, Yellowtail Snapper, and quite a few fish we didn't really know what to do with. Chef saw our catch and offered a deal. Give him the fish we didn't want, and he'd take the rest and cook it up Cajun style with sides and everything...for free.
Okay, drinks weren't free, but oh my god. A couple hours later the four of us were treated to a feast of epic proportions. Imagine one of those "all you can eat" fish dinners but with fresh fish you caught that day, cooked expertly by a real Cajun acting as your own personal chef for the evening.”
Freshly Caught Fish with Good Company
This ocean-loving foodie shared: “The best fish I’ve ever had was one that was spear fished by my husband’s uncle and served a couple hours later. I don’t even remember what kind of fish it was, we were anchored off some tiny island in the Bahamas. But it was amazing.”
Freshly Picked Produce
One foodie shared: “Most people also don't seem to understand how different freshly picked fruit and vegetables are to what you buy. Even stuff from farmers markets and roadside stalls have usually been stored for a week. Those beans that were picked months ago from the supermarket compared to ones picked fifteen minutes ago from your garden, there is simply no comparison.”
