A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Saturday, Oct. 29

Our good friends at Google run a daily puzzle challenge and asked us to help get them out to the geeky masses. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. Each morning at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here.

SPOILER WARNING:
As a test, we’re going to leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS!

Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience.

And now, without further ado, we give you…

TODAY’S PUZZLE:

You just ordered “?????” from a menu in the southernmost country in Europe. What will be brought to your table?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (mouseover to see):

Search [tallest peak Marin County] to find it’s Mount Tamalpais. Search [Gravity Man Mount Tamalpais] and find that he would “turn on the gravity” for passengers of wooden “gravity cars” on the Mt. Tam railroad. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was among those who enjoyed a thrilling, gravity-powered coast down what was known as the crookedest railroad in the world.
