It's been 12 months of good eating. After reviewing all my past blogs, I've pulled out some—though clearly not all—of the most delicious dishes from 2011 and listed them in no particular order. A couple are new discoveries to me (see L'Ardoise), some are rediscoveries (see Kiss), but most are new as of this year.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something. So remind me: What were yours?

1. Sausage and sauerkraut or chicken soup with dumplings at Leopold's (It's a toss up. Oh, and the apple strudel was amazing too.)

2. Steak frites at L'Ardoise

3. Pici with sausage ragu and chestnuts at Cotogna

4. Poco Dolce peanut butter bars

5. Sloppy lil p' sandwich (now being served at La Victoria Bakery every Thursday night) from pop-up Juhu Beach Club

6. Sloppy bun at Bun Mee (hmmm, I'm seeing a sloppy pattern)

7. Bocadillo de boquerones at Txoko (do not try to share this because you'll want it all for yourself) 

8. Burger at Super Duper

9. Fried chicken and red beans and rice at Criolla Kitchen

10. Benwaffles at Bar Jules (monthly)

11. Lamb chops at Locanda

12. Duck and sausage jambalaya at Boxing Room (Thursdays)

13. Laksa at Betelnut

14. Coffee-chocolate flan at Contigo

15. Omakase menu at Kiss Seafood

16. Brisket with braised daikon at Wo Hing General Store

17. Argentine beef empanada from Venga
