    Best thing I ever ate- Appetizers

    Was going to have 2 separate threads for appetizers and bread, but decided to combine them into 1.
    Last week's pre-dinner drinks had me itching to try a few new things.
    So what is everyone's favorite appetizer and where?


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Pizza Rolls from Fong's Pizza
    Here is the item on their menu:
    Pizza Rolls
    four pizza rolls, handmade in egg roll wrappers filled with pepperoni, Graziano sausage and mozzarella, served with marinara.

    I have had many of their specialty pizzas but this is still my favorite item on the menu.

    That is not even the best appetizer at Fongs, they are good, but they are not the Thai sticks.

    Little Smokies are a guilty pleasure. No innuendo intended.

    As a general rule, anything that's deep-fried and contains cheese is likely to be high on the list.

    That could really be taken in the wrong way.

    Re: Best thing I ever ate- Appetizers

    The absolute best appetizer I've ever had was the "sauce sampler" at Vesta Dipping Grill in Denver. You just get a bunch of pita chips, and then they have all of these different dipping sauces you can choose. It was delicious.

    The best fried pickles are/were at Cafe Northwest.
