    I'd like to nominate taro pies in Chinese McDonald's, but one per sitting is enough.

    Oh, no, I forgot MOS Burger, a Japanese chain, and Kit-Kat Peanut Butter. Oh wait, that's not a "fast food..."

    I don't drink, but I do relish the late-night skewer options in various Chinese cities; eggplant, mushrooms, mantou (steamed bread, but only when it's grilled/fried), leeks...add a mischievous blend of spices and a spray of lemon juice, and that'd suit just fine.

    I tried the Ugly Creamy Chicken Puff a couple of weeks back! Thanks for the heads up HaveMilesWillTravel.
    I wrote a post about it on my blog which you can check out HERE.

    I've had kebab pizza in Edinburgh and in Stockholm too, I believe. Really good! In Hamburg, I had one or two (or three) WONDERFUL wursts wrapped in croissant pastry. I'm not a hot dog fan, but these were just outstanding.

    You know, whether the thread title had "10" or not, us MPers will still do our best to make this one long thread! It's a good thing (in this case); I'm an eater wherever I go, so the recommendations won't be for naught...

    in a Chinese KFC, I once had a papaya egg tart. That was good, but maybe it was a one-off/seasonal product? Anybody know?

    KFC products you won't get outside Indonesia/SE Asia/Asia:

    Spicy chicken strips
    Spicy Crispy Chicken
    Teriyaki Bento
    KFC Spaghetti
    Croquettes
    KFC black pepper chicken (seasonal but was on for a short time only)
    KFC chili powder chicken

    There are others, but I forgot all about them already

    I miss Coco's CurryHouse Ichybanya from my time living in Japan.


    Even if I needed to have every public restroom between base and the location mapped out prior to partaking in it's awesome goodness.

    I heard though the grapevine there was one in CA

    Is the spaghetti one in the Philippines? I walked into a Jollibee in Queens in NYC and noticed spaghetti (pro-bably flavored with brown sugar).

    If you're ever in Shanghai, they've got 'em too.
