It does depend of course, but any meal that starts with garlic bread is going to be a good one!

North Americans seem afraid of garlic. We have it in almost every meal. No armpit stink here.
Oh well, what the feck.

Fegatini al balsamico from Al Duomo in Brighton.

Yes, it's still great - best pizza ever - although it's been a year or so since I took the bambinos (they love kids the Italians!)

It's mentioned in Will Self's My Idea Of Fun too :)

Fresh, wholegrain Italian bread with some extra virgin olive oil - superb.

As much as I love bread - with olive oil, with butter, as garlic toast - I find it too filling as an app. I really love a Caesar salad, or soup. LOVE soup. Best soup I ever had was a creamy cold cucumber cocoction. Magnifique.

At our local Turkish restaurant, they have a chopped salad platter that includes hummus. Freshest pita ever.

With Thai food, I like those wee crispy spring rolls with finely chopped shrimp, ground pork and veggies. That's the only time I'll eat shrimp.

Mexican - nachos with chili con queso and pico de gallo. Best ones ever were in south Texas.

Our US cousins call them appetisers. Mind you they call main courses 'entrees', which shows both an ignorance of French and a desire to confuse tourists. ;-)
