An American Version of the Omnivore's Top Hundred

So Slashfood decided to post their own list. An American version of the Omnivore's Top Hundred that ran a little while back--which originated from Great Britain.

I've got 28 more items I need to try. Meaning I've tried less items on the 'American' list than the original list from Great Britain. Interesting. Does that make me more British than American? At least when it comes to my palate? Who knows? Maybe there is a reason why I think American's don't know how to eat. And that American's are ignorant when it comes to food and eating.

God Save the Queen.
