Top 10 Foodie Cities?

Forbes.com has released a list of the ten best foodie cities in the world.

What defines "best"?

"A foodie city has a good mix of restaurants--some with an international reputation and that are true classics, others that are excellent but that people may not have heard of,"
- Martin Rapp, senior vice president of leisure at Altour International, a New York and Los Angeles luxury travel consultancy.

Here's their list:
1. New York City, U.S.A
2. Las Vegas, U.S.A
3. Los Angeles, U.S.A
4. Paris, France
5. Bologna, Italy
6. Singapore, Singapore
7. Palermo, Italy
8. Barcelona, Spain
9. London, England
10. Sydney, Australia

I don't agree with this list but I'm not a gastronomic expert.

The top three from the U.S. is a bit narrow. I have never been to Los Vegas, however all I can picture is "all you can eat" joints and shrimp cocktails (that's a bit narrow of me). You would have to think that central and south america must have something to offer, the majority of europe, africa and asia can't be that crap can they, to the point that three american cities blitz the field???? And then there is number 10, I have a lot to say about that but it would all boil down to bruised pride. Let them have their ugly ken done prints and sniff bum, we know what time it is.
