This wil probably sound rather pedestrian but here goes:

Green hazelnuts (the shell is not completely hard yet).
Shawarma/gyros made by one of the "Sam's" chain shops around the eastern mediterrannean. Damn, enough garlic to be radioactive Yum!
Iranian/Persian style ice cream with rosewater, pistachios and cardamom.
Greek-style cold rice pudding with piles of cinammon on top. Indian style with cardamom is good, too! Mahallebi as done in Cyprus, with rosewater sugar and rose cordial poured over the top (Lebanese style without the rose is a wee bit too bland for me but good)

Ooh, we can include drinks too?

My grandfather's zivania-based liqueur (which I managed to put togeher). Tastes so innocent yet sweet, luxurious and potent
Flemish red sour ales like Duchesse de Bourgogne/Petrus Oud Bruin
Cantillon Geuze. Sour like hell but by Jove, hell of a flavour!

And, pork spare ribs - marinated in honey and soy sauce, with piles of basmati!
