In terms of music, I have the unusual quality of (mostly) only liking new music. So anything recent off of Pandora works. Nothing 90's or 80's, at least for any extended period of time! I've been mocked for liking house music but it keeps me productive and is fun. I think a great test for the timelessness of a song is how well it fits into film soundtracks years after it came out. The Stones beat the Beatles by that metric (although I don't listen to either).
Food - don't get me started! I love anything Asian, Middle Eastern, or Mediterranean. Vietnamese and Indian are big favorites, but I really will try anything, especially when traveling. I figure if they are serving it at a nice hotel overseas, it can't possibly taste bad, no matter how crazy it looks. Legit the weirdest breakfast I ever had - Nasi Lemak. Mixture of coconut rice, sunny side up egg, Chicken Rendang (which is like a curry), Otak Otak (like a fish bacon or sausage), peanuts, cucumbers, and these little things which I thought were some kind of seasoning or dried shallot until I realized they were just super-small dried-up fish! Getting a bite of all of the above onto a spoon first thing in the morning is a bit of a trip in and of itself!
