What is the best food?

If you answered anything wrapped in a piece of bacon, you are correct.
I would've also accepted:
  • Anything wrapped in two pieces of bacon
Today I tried my hand a making musubi, a fine write up can be read in this wikipus. The actual wikipus on musubi is about a more traditional food than what I'm talking about and what is served locally.
Traditionally musubi was just a ball of salted rice. Today it's evolved into a ball of rice with a topping. My favorites have been Korean chicken and salmon. The ones I made today used Unagi (eel) and bacon as the toppings. I even made my own kabayaki (eel sauce), which is impossible to find, from shoyu (soy sauce), mirin and sugar. The ratio being 1/1/.5

Making musubi goes like this:
  1. Rice compacted to a sphere or oval shape
  2. topping of meat, fish or vegetable
  3. wrap it in nori
Seran wrap is ideal for storage until you're ready to eat.

I truly believe that there is nothing in the world that cannot be improved upon with the simple addition of bacon.
Nothing. Bacon makes everything better.

Cheese as well, I think.
