    Who would stay true to a diet with your last meal? I would probably get something that reminded me of a better time. Like my favorite meal while growing up.

    I'd get something that nobody could possibly fuck up. It's nice to talk about foie or other fancy things, but how many places are actually capable of preparing it properly? Then you have to consider transport, unless it's prepared onsite (really not sure).

    Steak and potatoes dauphinoise with some glazed root vegetables would make me pretty happy and is pretty hard to screw up.

    A little bread and a glass of wine. I believe that is the "go to" for last meals.

    Food might not be the most significant thing on my mind at that point.

    they'd probably give you wonderbread and a glass of yellow tail (if you're lucky)

    Then I may request that they toast the bread and have a bit of butter.

    does it have to be jail food or can we choose anything in the world?

    if latter 25 bowls of pho bo from pho gia truyen and 25 bowls of pho from 49 bat dan street both in hanoi

    if former a quick run to an in n out. 2 x 3 by 3, animal style, whole grilled onion, chilis on the side and a neapolitan shake

    this was pretty cool

    Depends on whether I'd be able to determine the quality of the food. If so, I guess I'd go with an omakase sushi dinner and champagne. Or Neapolitan pizza and red wine.

    My mother's baked ziti and my grandmother's meatballs. Sure, fancy food is nice, but I think it all goes back to what you ate as a child.

    Its a hypothetical question, I'm sure in a real prison your last meal would be whatever the cook decided was on the menu tonight.

    Starter - pierogi
    Fish course - salmon, dill, parmesan, spaghetti
    Main - steak and chips, no veg
    Dessert - chocolate gateau

    Actually I'd order a Vindaloo from the dodgy curryhouse round the corner so I'd shit everywhere and the guards would have to clean it up.
