Saltimbocca is an Italian dish that means ‘jumps in mouth’.  It is traditionally veal with sage leaf wrapped in prosciutto.  However, chicken is commonly substituted for the veal.  Supposedly this food is so good that it ‘jumps in mouth’.  There are only two other foods that I can think of that describe what the food is like in the mouth,  croquembouche (crunch in the mouth) and amuse-bouche (amuses the mouth).  But there has to be more.  What are they?  Let me know!
