    As I'm sitting here eating Combination Lo Mein, Chicken Fried Rice, and Crab Rangoon, I'm wondering what ethnic food is the most popular here on the Forum. Although I'm not a big fan of Chinese cuisine, there are a few dishes that I absolutely love.
    I think my overall favorite would have to be Mexican food. I just can't get enough of it.

    This is one that always is hard to call. Ever since travelling to Japan, I've loved Korean food. This sounds strange, but there was an authentic Korean restaurant in Naha that had some of the best pulgoki and sokalbigui. Japanese food is great too - there's a Shogun restaurant that calls my name every time I pass by it. Chinese, well, it's hard to find 'real' Chinese food around here - it's mostly Americanized (read Southernized) by frying everything. It's still great, though. [​IMG]
    It's definately dependent on my mood. it varies from some good German sauerbraten to Greek muffalettas. As this is a poll, let's keep tabs; So far, we've mentioned:
    Chinese, Mexican, Korean, Japanese, German, Italian, Greek
    Let's see what others come up with. I'd be interested in trying something I've never had before.

    I love both Mexican and Italian food. Especially if it's good (and sadly, that's hard to find in Vegas [​IMG]).

    Mexican of course!
    ------------------
    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    No brainer for me, Mexican food all the way. But I do love food of all types. Indian food would probably be second, followed by Chinese and Thai.

    I'm too much of a wimp for many of the traditional Mexican dishes, like Lime Turtle Soup.

    It's not necessarily my favorite, since I like so many foods for so many reasons (just like movies), but if you guys haven't tried it yet, go give Ethiopian food a shot.

    As for the bad rap about the characters--hey, I've seen space operas that put their emphasis on human personalities and relationships. They're called "Star Trek" movies. Give me transparent underwater cities and vast hollow senatorial spheres any day. --Roger Ebert on The Phantom Menace
