    Sunday is my cheat day and I treat myself to a bacon cheeseburger from Five Guys and it's always heavenly.

    ^ I'd lay off their peanuts. Their fries, named by Men's Health magazine as among the unhealthiest at any fast food joint, are cooked in peanut oil, notoriously contaminated with the carcinogen aflatoxin (from a fungus that commonly contaminates peanuts). Peanuts they serve can have the same toxin, so you're getting a whopping dose of poison. But yes, satisfying.

    There's a pizza place near me that does these square pizzas that taste fantastic, and even their fries and garlic bread are to die for too.

    I'd have that. In large. And eat myself to death.

    Seen Se7en? Yeah, like that.

    Burritos Tipicos (Beef Tips) smothered with queso, lettuce, tomato, and guacamole salad.

    Or a good, charcoal grilled Ribeye with a baked potato and a salad.

    then again, I'm jst as happy going to Olive Garden for unlimited pasta ***ioli soup, salad, and bread sticks.

    I ain't real picky as long as it's good!

    *** can't believe editor blanked out "eff" "a" "gee" in the soup name ***

    Alas, some of the best tasting food is also the unhealthiest :/

    Surstromming puts everything but the kitchen sink in stink--whew!

    Compared to surstromming and other "aromatics" such as lutefisk and hakari (a Danish 'delicacy' of rotten shark meat), pickled herring and canned mackerel come off smelling like a dozen long-stemmed roses.

    Looks like the cups (kinnums) were obsessively arranged by Rafa

    Opening a can of surströmming is like detonating a nuclear bomb of the most pungent rotting fish on the planet. If done indoors, there will be casualties.

    Ha ha, I noticed that only after you mentioned it. Personally, I don't care much for the kinnums. I like all the food on the plantain leaf so that I can have my 'kootanchoru' (medley) styled devouring.

    King Taco is my go to place for gluttony. Carne Asada nachos, three carne asada tacos and a large Horchata.

    It really is the only place I can go to, eat till I'm sick, then go back the next day (not that I do). I try and limit myself to once or twice a month.

    Surstromming: For Strength!!!!

    tennismonkey, I don't know where you live (there's a few Scandanavian specialty shops around here), but maybe try your local IKEA store? I think they sell food items like Swedish meatballs, caviar in a tube, etc. Maybe they'll have surstromming.

    Millions of Swedes can't be wrong. Here's a quick 10-second video below of a lovely Swedish maiden after ingesting surstomming:

    Though I'm a Swede, I've never tasted surströmming. It's kind of "thank you, but no thank you".
