Now that I’ve eaten my way through somebody else’s list (Time Out New York), I’m ready to compile my own 100 spectacular things I’ve tasted in 2012. Look for another five dishes every few days.

NUMBER 95: RICE ROLL WITH FRIED DOUGH at NOM WAH TEA PARLOR

Why does fried food taste so good? Well, it probably has something to do with lots of oil, salt, and often a good amount of carbs.

This whopper of a dish is basically carbs upon carbs. At the newly re-thought old time dim sum parlor Nom Wah they take a chunk of dough and wrap it in steamed rice noodles. The Chinese cruller known as youtiao gives the dish a doughy sweetness which is complemented by the chewy texture of the pasta. A drizzle of sweet salty soy sauce brings the carb bomb to life. Price: $3.50
