It’s just a really good time to consider getting the
bibimbap, the McRib, the epic burger, and the Indian
Posted on December 26, 2017, 19:00 GMT
We asked members of the
BuzzFeed Community what
their last meal on earth would be.
And they had some delicious ideas. Like,
Here’s what they said:
1. This epic burger with the sides the
The Burnt End Burger from a restaurant called Q39 in Kansas
City. Imagine the best burger possible topped with tender,
juicy burnt ends and bbq sauce. I’m dying. Add some sweet
potato fries and mac and cheese for sides. Then a huge bowl
of ice cream that had both cookies and cream and rocky road.
I could die happy.
2. This artichoke ravioli that’s
literally to die for.
I developed a wheat allergy when I was 15. If I had to choose
a final meal, I’d say screw it and eat artichoke ravioli from
this Italian restaurant in my town, and like, two dozen
donuts. If I’m gonna die, I might as well die happy.
3. This sentimental gumbo recipe washed
down with dad’s favorite beer.
I lost my dad in the Spring of 2012, but there’s nothing I
wouldn’t do to have one more bowl of his flavorful and
experimental seafood gumbo, full of crab, sausage, Tony
Chacere’s, and mini squid. I also swear to everyone that I
meet that my nana makes the world’s best potato salad!
So my last meal would be seafood gumbo and potato salad with
a big glass of my dad’s favorite beer, Shiner Bock.
4. This IHOP breakfast that’s as
meaningful as it is delicious.
I would want to have IHOP breakfast for my last meal, not
only because it’s undeniably the most delicious breakfast
food in all the land, but because the most important moments
in my friendship and now relationship with my girlfriend were
at IHOPs in the middle of the night. We went to IHOP after
every concert when we were just friends, on what we didn’t
realize at the time were dates, and those conversations
shaped our relationship. I’m honestly probably going to
propose at an IHOP with the ring inside a pancake or
something, just to bring it full circle. Every time we eat at
IHOP on purposeful dates now, my heart is full.
5. This elusive duo.
A McDonald’s McRib with a Shamrock Shake. You can never get
that at the same time!!
6. This tribute to a southern
Thanksgiving with all the trimmings.
My final meal would be a southern Thanksgiving feast with all
my family’s traditional recipes: deep fried turkey, spiral
ham, chicken salad, pimento cheese, Cornbread Dressing with
the cranberry sauce that comes out in the shape of the can.
7. This simple but classic childhood
I would have my mom’s homemade pizza with a glass of Coke.
Typical weekend food when visiting my mom as a kid.
8. This comfort food
Bone marrow with garlic toast, mashed potatoes with gravy,
roasted Brussels sprouts, popover rolls, chocolate lava cake,
peanut butter pie, and a banana split.
I realize this seems like a lot but I’m pregnant.
9. This epic surf ‘n turf
She-crab soup, medium rare steak, roasted broccoli, red skin
mashed potatoes, a pound of crab legs, and a caramel brûlée
10. This feast courtesy of Grandma’s
My grandma’s stir-fried rice with eggs and shallots, with a
side of pickled cabbage. Maybe I will add a simple bowl of
tofu soup with tomato and spring onion. She made it for me as
breakfast before I left the house for school for years, and
now it’s imprinted in my mind as the flavor of home.
And if I can be greedy for once, I will ask for a hot dark
and thick chocolate cup, with a scoop of matcha ice-cream.
Not the one with mild matcha flavor, but the intense version
of it, please!
11. This combo, which pays tribute to
mom’s and dad’s best dishes.
Mine is mainly sentimental and nostalgic. So it would be my
mom’s homemade spaghetti and my dad’s barbecued steak, with
garlic bread and a Caesar salad on the side. And my mom’s
apple crisp for dessert.
12. And this bread-fanatic’s dream come
Just a bunch of bread. Baguettes, rolls, croissants, challah,
all of it. I can drift off into carb bliss before I leave
this mortal world.
13. This ironic but still ambitious
A lifetime supply of jellybeans.
14. This serious AF
breakfast-lunch-and-dinner all in one.
I’m a pretty indecisive person, so for my final meal, I’d
probably make it a combination of my favorite foods for each
type of meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, beverage).
That would be corned beef hash from a can with two eggs over
hard, tamago nigiri (a type of sushi made from a sweet egg
omelette), and a side salad with ginger dressing, four cheese
risotto, a hot fudge sundae with cake batter ice cream and
chocolate covered strawberries, and an iced vanilla latte to
wash it all down.
15. This epic meal that requires a trip
I am flying to Singapore (I’m in Australia) and getting the
xiao long bao, fried pork chop, and egg fried rice and a bowl
of wonton soup from the Din Tai Fung at Paragon on Orchard
Road because it is my all time favourite meal and it is the
first place I had it. Afterwards I would have a Venti iced
chocolate with a shot of mint syrup and extra whipped cream
from Starbucks, and a chocolate praline pop rocks cake and
Sailor Mary Gin from 2 a.m. Dessert Bar to finish.
16. This sampling of your top 10.
I would have sushi, shrimp tacos, a burrito, pasta, quinoa
salad, cheesecake, chocolate cake, fondue, cupcakes, baklava,
andddd that would be all.

chocolate-covered raisins for dessert.

in San Diego, Junior’s cheesecake from NYC, and a bag of
chocolate covered raisins.

Lobster mac and cheese, French fries, ice cream.
23. This tribute to peanut

24. This traditional German/Hungarian
stew that reminds you of coming home.
Paprikash. It’s a traditional German/Hungarian stew with
chicken drumsticks, potatoes, and dumplings. My dad always
made this for me when I’d come home from boarding
25. This feast fit for a
I’m vegetarian but for my last meal I’d have ribs as well as
an entire cheesecake and a large Diet Coke.

26. This perfect pairing.
Milk and cookies! Pounds and pounds of chocolate chip cookies
and Oreos and I would put some of them in a bowl with milk
and eat the rest dry.
27. This delightful Korean dinner with
frozen treats for dessert.
Korean bibimbap and soondubu with a tall glass of sparkling
pink lemonade on the side. For dessert, a chocolate chip ice
cream sandwich and some shave ice.
28. This direct-from-Italy
If I had to choose my last meal then it would have to be a
four cheese pizza from the best pizza place in Italy and a
large bowl of mac and cheese from again the most famous place
in Italy for that dish. Then a large glass of root beer to
top it off.
29. This “one of everything” act of
The entire Cheesecake Factory menu just so I can try a bite
30. This meal that marries Bahama Breeze
I think about this a lot. Buttermilk Fried Chicken from
Bahama Breeze and a Frosty from Wendy’s.
31. This very specific request.
A slice of cheese pizza from Two Boots pizza in NYC, and a
side of brown rice from Chipotle, along with a strawberry
smoothie from anywhere.
32. This decisive selection.
In-N-Out, no contest.

possibly ask for.

tikka! Oh…and gulab jamun for dessert! #fullonindianbaby
36. This crawfish before dying.
I am deathly allergic to shellfish, plus I’m a longtime
vegetarian, my dying wish is to go to a crawfish boil as I’ve
never tried it and it’s always been a dream of mine.
37. This Mexican soup with a wine and
Caldo de queso, it’s a Mexican soup from my hometown, and no
one on this earth will ever make it as delicious as my mom
does. That, a nice Malbec, and Nutella straight out of the
jar for dessert.

what they like.
Nachos with fake-as-fuck nacho cheese.

fresh baked peanut butter chocolate swirl cookies from my
grandma’s kitchen. And if I’m still hungry, some Ben and
Jerry’s mint cookie crunch ice cream.
