Correct! The best food in the world can be found in that middle eastern melting pot also known as Cyprus, although it would seem that the McDonalds fast food outlets are taking their toll on the more traditional food outlets. (Cant believe the Greek Cypriots flock to those god awful restaurants when they have so much excellent food on offer elsewhere!)

Re: What is your favourite 'ethnic' food.

you know...there should really be separate choices for "Asian" food. Indian and Thai food are nothing alike. the same for Vietnamese, Middle Eastern, etc.

As for my favorites: Japanese, Mediterranean (gotta love that hummus and olives), Vietnamese (love the simplicity), and Eastern Thai foods (yes, there's a difference).

I grew up in a predominantly Mexican city, and I've grown so tired of Mexican food, which technically in America is Tex-Mex, not real mexican food :P .

Re: What is your favourite 'ethnic' food.

hi, i suggest to try some Colombian food (i´m obviously biased here), specially:

frijoles (red beans...differente to mexican)
sancocho de gallina (dense soup...plantains, "yuca", ken, and lots of other stuff)
mondongo (like "callos a la madrileña" but better)
tamales (chicken and meat on a corn "masa", wrapped on plantain leaf...dont eat the leaf!!)
empanadas (like a fried small tamal....not really but i cant explain it differently)

i´ve seen colombian restaurants in ny and miami.....

hope you enjoy it!!

Re: What is your favourite 'ethnic' food.

I really like spicy stuff, so I'd say Thai and Indian, but I've actually been getting in to Mexican lately since there are actually some decent restaurants that have opened up here lately.

Re: What is your favourite 'ethnic' food.

My Italian grandmothers are spinning in their graves, but mine is Indian and Thai, the spicier the better. I've also been known to make jalapeño sandwiches.

Mexican. In fact I just had Mexican food for lunch. It's probably reponsible for the at least 50 of my overweight pounds. ---sigh---

Japanese. Do you really want to eat Fubo. Or is it Whale?
Chinese, Who the F... told you China was on San Francisco.
Italian. That's a hard one to catch. They get for breakfast my entire meal during the day.
So 'mexican' food they serve at 'mexican' restaurants is crap? I wouldn't expect it to be exactly what every mexican eats every day, but the dishes themselves in general come from that general area. Same for basically every food, it comes from a specific area.

Fast food more or less originated in the US. Of course there's more than that, but's it's a generalization. Fast food and pie is what most people, or at least me, think when they hear "American food".

And I'm assuming all those Chinese immigrants would never understand what Chinese food is, especially the ones that open restaurants, would they? Same for every culture, if it isn't directly made in that country, it is fake food. Mkay. Tell that to every chef in the world that cooks food not native to their birth place.

And yeah, I know I could have had a lot more options, especially for 'asian' food, but I could have put on 30 different ones and it probably wouldn't be enough.

I've been eating spaghetti bolognaise since I can remember. I get tired of rice and spuds but hardly ever Italian.
