2. Delhi pista korma at the Delhi Club

3. Filet Van Hertekalf at Belga Café (filet of venison with sweet potato, pomegranate sauce and a foie gras crème brulée)

4. Chocolate bombshell at Café Divan (a baseball-sized ball of vanilla and chocolate ice cream with a cherry in the center, cut into sections with crushed pistachios and a berry coulis)

5. Zucchine Ripiene alla Ligure at Bebo Trattoria (baked zucchini filled with Ricotta cheese, marjoram and basil)

I am intrigued by the "dusty" pork in Tom's picks. What's that about?

My bad for editing his submission. He described the dish this way: "Grilled marinated pork with a fine rice flour coating is surprising fun yet satisfying."
