The Quest

My mission: to eat (reasonably) authentic cuisine from every country in the world (168 countries), without leaving New York City.

Countries are generally included only if the population is over 1,000,000; a native of the country must be involved in the food preparation. Meals prepared in NYC restaurants, food trucks, churches, mosques, and private homes (hint, hint) all count.
