If you knew for a fact that today would be your last day alive, what would your last meal be?

That is a question often asked of professional chefs the world over since there have been professional chefs.

Acerbic Anthony Bourdain has said he would like to have perfectly seared foie gras. Masaharu Morimoto of Iron Chef fame not unexpectedly said whatever was freshly caught off the sea of Japan as a sushi and sashimi. Italian-American icon Mario Battali would of course go for any fresh pasta or pizza.

How about you guys?

I'm still thinking of mine but a good start would have to be something truly Pinoy: a hearty bulalo. I'll work my way from there.

my last meal and testament:

corned beef sinigang like the one served in sentro 1771
peking duck
rack of lamb
wagyu beef
washed with vintage pinot noir

that way, matitigok ako sa kabusugan ;D

Since I wouldn't need to watch my diet and indulge my "love" for vegetables anymore...

Starters:

1. A platter of the sweetest, freshest Britanny oysters freshly shucked, (the large variety, please!);
2. A nice platito of sea urchin from Capiz with wasabi and kikkoman on the side;

Soup:

1. Fresh clam chowder from Pike Market, Seattle

Main Course

1. The chuleton cooked medium-rare rib-eye from Gaudi's, and for once, I will gorge on all the taba I can taste. No steak resto in Manila comes close, imho.

Dessert

1. A tub of Vanilla Swiss Almond ice cream from Haagen-Dazs if they were to revive this divine flavor just for me, OR a large container of gelatto from Pazzo or Pagliacci with the following flavors: rioce, gianduia and pistaccio

Drinks

Not being a wine guy since I am more of a beer guy myself -

1. 6-pack of bottled Sam Adams, chilled to perfection
2. 6-pack of Flying Dog Doggie Style Ale , chilled as well, courtesy of Jim Araneta (God bless him for bringing craft beer in volume to Manila's beer enthusiasts)

Dessert

- A good halo-halo, with finely-shaved (not crushed) ice, and with more than a dozen toppings, topped off with halayang ube, leche flan, and vanilla ice cream.

Drinks

- A bottle of Freixenet, chilled to perfection
- One half-liter can of Oettinger Blue

Padagdag na lang to each of the all-day "last meals" ni Joe: one or two properly seasoned and conditioned Cohibas. Brandy is optional, but since mamamatay ka na then make it mandatory.

Manong Joe,

Pag ganito karaming pagkain, last day na ngang maituturing.

Cause of death: Impatso. ;D

Dagdag ko na sa mga nabanggit. Beef Pares at Spareribs Double Garlic from Almer's.

I am a little torn whether to have foods I've always enjoyed all my life or foods I've always wanted to try but never got around to trying.

Frankly the overwhelmingly orgasmic overload that Joe enumerated will become anyone's last bloody meal whether or not it be his last day.

The Top 10 foods I have always enjoyed in no particular order:

American Black Angus rib eye steak. I am just not that big a Wagyu beef fan, I prefer American beef, and I do not like meat with the bone in so no t-bone or porterhouse for me. Who eats bone?
Sinigang na liempo sa sampaloc
Inihaw na buntot ng tanigue
Kare-kare laman loob with salty (not savory or sweet) bagoong
Maryland crab cakes at the market where George Washington went to market
Shrimp tempura at the old Tempura Misono of the once-grand Hyatt Hotel in Pasay
Lobster tail sashimi fresh at the Hokkaido Fish Market
Chef's salad with slivers of roast beef and blue cheese dressing at the US Embassy's Sea Front Clubhouse
Braised ox tongue at Hizon's in Ermita
Pecan pie ala mode at Camp John Hay

I would need to have all of the above as part of my last meal.

For a drink fresh brewed tea to be turned into iced tea, with real lemon and mint.

After the meal some Basil Hayden premium bourbon.

topic starter is a genius:

i will have what everyone will have and also...

mom's cooking or baking (whether spaghetti or graham's cake or macaroni, etc.)
wendy's baconator, kfc's zinger
goldilocks' mais con hielo and polboron
hany
skittles and m&m's

and most important, this burger http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/taste/41833417.html?elr=KArksLckD8EQDUoaEyqyP4O:DW3ckUiD 3aPc:_Yyc:aUUsZ:

Kung ang last meal niyo naman ay sa iisang restaurant naman, saan niyo ninanais kumain na restaurant?

Ako dun sa Spirals ng Sofitel, dating Westin, Philippine Plaza, siempre naman lalantakan kong buffet nila.

For home cooking:

Bulalo with broccoli flower
Bitsuelas with pata with bugu-ung (bagoong isda) and calamasi as sauce
Lecho Kawali that goes with dineng-deng. Again, bugu-ung and calamansi as the preferred sauce
Szechuan-style prawn

Why does Hollywood typically portray a death row convict's last meal as a "good steak and a baked potato"...?

Speaking of last meals, the last meals of the year are coming up - Christmas Eve and New Year Eve dinners as well as Christmas Day lunch.

I'm picking among Heat of Shangrila EDSA, Seven Corners of Crowne Plaza, and Jeepney Cafe of Intercon for those occasions because of their stellar buffets. Any recommendations?

Speaking of last meals, are there last meals that players are supposed to eat before a game? And does the old at least two-hours-before rule still apply? For instance, the day of the UST-Ateneo game, I assume players at least will of course have lunch at around mid-day. Will they eat anything else say an hour or maybe two hours before the game?

^ Karim has no such rules LOL. Pocehero is his all-time favorite especially the one from Mesa. "One order for me and get another for you guys if you want some". But he's down to 2 extra rice from 5 extra. And, mind you, he has requested for rice cooker and a supply of brown rice :D.

Aljon's mom cooks whatever he wants. So far bulalo is the most requested chow daw.

The dorm-based guys wil have to make do with the school-provided meal catered by Aling Eva's.
