I used to think that I loved Indian spicy food. Until I went to India for a couple of months.

I love Swedish Chinese food. I'm not too enthusiastic about real (tm) Chinese food.

I still have to lose my enthusiasm for supposedly authentic Indonesian fare. A couple of months in Amsterdam rather increased my opinion.

Favourite treat cuisine: Japanese, sushi and sashimi.

Favourite staple-diet cuisine: Meat and two veg British.

I don't think continental actually exists, except in the mind of Indian menu writers!

So difficult

My tastes constantly change. I can crave pancakes for a month, then bacon, lettuce, tomato sandwiches for a month then South India staples like idly, vada, dosa, uppuma

And Italian!!! Good Italian, really good available in the U.S. because of large Italian population.

And Thai food. OMG! But not like in Thailand, too hot for me. Same thing in the U.S. with less heat.

This poll was very hard for me. I voted for South Indian because where I now live I can't easily get it.

I like to eat a big variety of foods and it's why I can't lose any weight.

Turkish or Moroccan

It will be something else in a few months.

I guess I always go back to North Indian, Thai and real Chinese

Hands Down

South Indian here for this fella. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy other cuisine but if deserted on an island and given a choice of only one type, it would be south indian.

Frankly could it be any other????

Me love Avial and a Sri Lankan dish (or spice) called Ambul Thiyal that is used to cook extremely hot fish curry.

Also love Indonesian, Greek and Italian food.

Mucho gracias

first choice - South Indian
Second would be North INdian - but not rajma chawal or Choley Bhature - more like dal roti sabzi

It's all Greek to me, but Benglish will do

Ethiopian. Spicier than Indian food, and delicious! Doro Wot, Ethiopian spicy chicken is to die for. Kitfo. Kik Alicha (spicy puree of fava beans). Tips wat (lamb chops with chillies + onions).

Greek. (Obviously - yummy veggie dishes; fish straight from the sea grilled; fruit straight from the tree, currently pomegranates.)

English. (Childhood favourites, such as Fish Pie, Apple Crumble, Eccles Cakes, Bangers n Mash, Fish n Chips)

Bengali. (Fish and sweets...no need to elaborate, as they are so famous)

Vietnamese. (now I think of it, maybe this is my favourite cuisine of all - Bo Bun noodle soup for instance on a cold day)

Tibetan. (MOMOS!!!)

Momos most definitely!! Love them!

What interests me is the 'out of the commons' taste IMers share. Great!

Anyone tried Hungarian food??

Regarding Turkish food, I think 50% of Turkish cuisine is similar to Mughlai, being grilled kebabs, just with different spices. They use different bread too.

What about Lebanese food? It was my bread and butter in 2008. I literally survived on Humoos and Khuboos and Labneh! I miss it though!

Talking Mughlai Of course

I always belief that moghals were very special in their food practise. they had their special chefs for their cooking who introduced large number of delicious receipies. Now they are indianized and popular. I love mughlai khana - u just cann't end the list starts with biriyani, kabab, kofta, tikka, oh I just cann't write any more as mouth is watering just naming them.
