But how to describe it?

Say the word "hash," and the canned variety usually comes to mind. You know, the product that features potatoes and either roast beef or corned beef in an impossibly fine dice of stunning uniformity. Decanned and fried with an egg on top, it's a diner staple beloved of folks who crave salty foods.

One of these dishes is #17 in our countdown, but which one?

A few days ago, Fork in the Road detailed how Northern Chinese BBQ carts have been multiplying and extending their menus to include such unusual items as green beans and lamb kidneys. There's another tendency, too. Some carts are going brick-and-mortar, something we've seen in other street carts around the city, and one of the first to do so has recently appeared on Flushing's Roosevelt Avenue, a bao's throw from Macy's.

I've eaten a lot of very spicy food. Last Sunday at a Thai restaurant in Elmhurst, I ate something that made me start hiccuping. I've endured the habanero-festooned food of the Yucatan in the shadow of Mayan ruins, and Sichuan hot pots so hot, that the seafood inside almost jumped out onto the tablecloth. And yes I've tried the phaal at Brick Lane Curry House, but none of this could prepare me for a soup I was forced to sip rather than spoon up at a West African restaurant last week.
