Happy Valentine’s Day!
Follow Me Foodie’s Top 10 Orgasmic Dishes!
So I was thinking of doing the whole “10 Aphrodisiac Foods” or “where to go for Valentine’s day desserts” post, but it was kind of kicking a dead horse and I couldn’t find a creative spin to it. I’m already tweeting Valentine’s Day desserts from various countries throughout the day today (see them here), so I wanted to do something different.
And then it dawned on me, that the 10 foods that I find “orgasmic” are not even the given oysters, chocolate and caviar (although nothing against those), but they are just dishes done well and done right.
I could eat a bar of chocolate and 75 oysters (which I’ve done before) and not feel lovey dovey, or I can eat one amazing dish that makes me want to kick the table and throw the plate across the room.
Sure oysters are scientifically proven to be aphrodisiacs and many varieties are freaking amazing, but here are my top 10 orgasmic dishes of this year. None of the listed dishes are scientifically proven to be aphrodisiacs to my knowledge, but they are fully capable of giving you an instant foodgasm.
If you’re a couple then go try these together, and if you’re single then go by yourself and have satisfaction knowing that you won’t have to share. If that doesn’t make you feel better about your current status, then just know “grass is greener on the other side”.
The list is limited to what I tried this year.
Listed in no particular order.

2. Chicken & Waffles – Deep fried chicken and Belgium waffles with gravy and maple syrup at Yolk’s Breakfast.
7. The Porker – Double smoked bacon, sage and apple sausage stuffing, home made chutney, goat Gouda, house made caramelized onion mayo, and greens all wrapped up in their handmade flatbread at Pig on the Street. My post here.
10. Kick A** Fried Rice with Pork Belly at Le Tigre.
And just because I don’t want you to think I have anything against oysters…

See! I love them! Maybe I should have just done a tribute to oysters… ?
