    I LOVES me some good Indian food. Mattar Paneer, Saag Aloo, almost any Indian dish or drink (other than the seafood ones) are fantastic to me; I think it's my favorite type of food in the world. What culture or country produces the greatest or most unique dishes in your eyes?

    I like Thai food a lot. Loves me some spicy curry.

    I also really like sushi, I love how those little bits of tasty goodness can fill you up so well.

    The frozen north
    Sweden - fermented herring.

    Definitely not "the greatest", but for sure up there in "most unique".

    I loved all ethnic foods that I've tried so far, but right now mexican snacks are my favorite tv dinner - homemade salsa and nachos :)

    Yeah, nothing beats a bowl or nachos. I personally love making guacamole, I have a really easy, and really tasty recipe, that is remarkably good, and really really easy.

    acacado+Spike multiseasoning+lime+optional garlic salt(if you like that stuff)

    mix, and you are done.

    I cook Italian or Mexician most days. I order out Chinese often... first choice for eating out is the local Mexician places

    Yeah, guacamole is great too, funny thing is that most cook books got it wrong - way too much lemon/lime juice.

    Hmmm . . . Indian (north and south), Chinese , Thai, Mexican, Italian (north and south), Greek, Afghani (really a cross between indian and greek almost), Ukrainian/Russian, Japanese, . . . it's all good. Though my tastes for seafood are pretty limited.

    I think my favorite vegetarian food by a long ways is Indian.
     
  14. Oh man, geshel, you're so right about the indian vegetarian food. Oh man. They fry vegetables and make them taste really good, as if they weren't vegetables!:p

    Cambodian "teriyaki style" (for the lack of a proper term) beef. Oh man! I haven't had this in a while. It is soooo good.

    If you like the fried Indian appetizers, try some Japanese tempora. Same idea, but with a different flavor.
