There is still time to get to know the best of 2012, things, places, news, flavors that caused a stir for being unique and unmatched among others on many lists.

We found the selection of food critic, Jonathan Gold, who presented a collection of the best flavors of the year. 

Among the finalists is “La Guerrerense", a seafood cart run by Sabina Bandera, whose flavor has been around the world and is located in Ensenada, Baja California.

Gold’s taste buds were conquered by the “tostada de caracol” which is a crispy tortilla with seasoned sea snail, onion, cilantro and slices of tomato among other ingredients.

Sabina prepared this at the L.A. Street Food Fest and won the prize of the event.

Located at the corner of First and Alvarado Street in Ensenada, Sabina has become a stop you must make on your visit, because her food is simply unique and within the culinary world of Baja California.

 It can be compared to the food of great chefs.

In a way one could say that 2012 was one of her best years, because the flavors that were created from her hands transcended the border, in particular with the visit of another food critic and chef, Anthony Bourdain, who also considered her cart to be as one of the best 101 places to eat at in the world.

Sabina Bandera has over 36 years of experience in the business, and eating at her cart you will find artists, politicians, tourists and citizens of the municipality, because taste does not make any distinctions.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST

Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.

However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.

Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
