8. Melbourne, for restaurants that look like bars

There’s something about the city -- from its narrow laneways to its scruffy inner suburbs -- that means Melbourne’s natural inclination is towards the casual, despite the grandness of its central city.

Here, you’ll find restaurants halfway between bar and restaurant, at once casual and slick. The food is uniformly inventive and the service is fabulous.

But MoVida (1 Hosier Lane; +61 3 9663 3038) is still the restaurant that continues to set the pace for casual dining in Melbourne -- four restaurants across the CBD, serving some of the most sublime tapas you’ll find anywhere on the planet, Barcelona included.

9. Naples, for pizza

Naples might be dirty, corrupt and disorganized, but it is also the home of the food we think of as Italian -- dark, ripe tomatoes, basil, pasta, seafood, all of it fresh and bursting with flavor.

And then, then there is pizza. Neapolitans didn’t exactly invent pizza, but you could say they defined it -- they were the first to put tomatoes on it and a Neapolitan chef was the first to add Mozzarella, at Antica Pizzeria Brandi (Salita S. Anna Di Palazzo 1-2; +39 081 416 928), which still exists.

The pizza here is rustic, robust, unruly -- it is wood-fired, with puffy edges blackened from the oven, a chewy base and minimal ingredients.

As you’d expect, no one can agree on the best, but you should start with Da Michele (Via Cesare Sersale 1; +39 081 5539 204), a traditional 19th-century pizzeria which only serves two types of pizza -- Margherita and Marinara. They’re both mind-bogglingly good.

10. San Francisco, where modern eating began

It has some of the world’s best restaurants, but it was San Francisco’s cult restaurant Chez Panisse (1517 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley; +1 510 548 5525) that ushered in a new generation in dining.

Alice Waters focused on seasonal food and organic ingredients before anyone else knew there was a problem with the food chain; it still serves up fabulous food, night after night -- best of all, on Mondays you can eat a three-course meal for US$60. But you knew that.

So we would also direct you to Tartine (600 Guerrero St.; +1 415 487 2600), in the city’s Castro district. It started as a bakery: a loyal following and one gorgeous cookbook and it has expanded along the block. We insist you go to the original, and eat a pecorino and toasted almond sandwich.

Bread will never be the same again.

My vote is for Saku, Nagano Prefecture, Japan.
They have, by far, the best McDonalds and KFC I have EVER experienced.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
