Have to agree with something wrapped in bacon. Pan fried scallops are a perfect combination with it, with a bit of garlic infused extra virgin olive oil, either with some sliced green onion, parsely, or green or white asparagus.

Stuffed mushrooms work well too. Prosciutto wrapped mozarella makes a good appetizer as well.

A restaurant near us used to make "tomato bread":

Flat bread, about 6 inches across
Very thinly sliced tomato
Sprinkle of minced garlic, not too much
Parmesan cheese
Drizzle of olive oil

You can make it at home, but I'm having a hard time finding the right flat bread.

Calamari

Calamari shocks even me and my parents. I don't have a wide palette so fried squid shocks me that I love it so much.

Chicken/Beef Satay from an authentic Thai restaurant where they make the peanut sauce right. I first had this on a trip to Thailand many years ago, and cannot get enough of it since.
I remember eating so much of this when I was there, that my sister and I would make little buildings out of the wooden sticks the meat is skewered on.
