Best Restaurant Dishes of 2011 in Vancouver BC, Austin TX and beyond

It’s been a remarkable year.  Looking back at my Flickr feed, it’s apparent that I ate very well. Exceptionally well. Ridiculously, unreasonably well.

Without further ado, here are my top, most memorable restaurant dishes of 2011 in Austin, Vancouver, and on my travels to Montreal, San Francisco, and Portland.

What was your most memorable meal of the year?

Have a wonderful New Year and cheers to another year of fine eats with great company. xo

    I agree with a lot of this! Man. Why did I read this right before lunch? My brown bag isn’t as appetizing.

    Is there a ‘Love’ button around here?  Great yummy dishes and will try out those dishes at Ho Yuen Kee when I visit my folks (I live like 1 block away from there haha).  Miss you and hope to see you soon in the new year!
