Right now I would say a giant bowl of spicy ramen.
1. First would have to be a giant chili cheese dog, from a sausage made of the highest quality pork, on a French baguette right out of the oven, with some spicy homemade chili completely smothering it, then 6 different cheeses stacked and smothered on the chili.
2. Next would be a big, cheesy burrito, stuffed with carnitas pork, yellow rice, beans, cheese, strips of steak, and two sauces.

Fugu is pufferfish. The liver is extremely poisonous - tetrodotoxin. It has to be prepared exactly correctly or you will die.
Chefs in Japan have to undergo special training in order to be certified to prepare it, and their final exam is to make it for themselves and eat it.
It is obviously, pass/fail.
I've heard it's actually not all that wonderful of flavor, but it's more the idea that you are eating something that may kill you and you won't know until you've eaten it one way or the other. There are always a few accidents every year.
