What foods have you eaten from other cultures (either loved or hated)?

(Japanese)Sushi -Yuck! Never made it down.

(Greek)Gyro-Delicious-Wish I had one right now!

(Greek)Baklava- Mmm...Warm & Wonderful! 

(Mexico) Almost bugs, no organs and no innards, LOL.  Other than that I love Mexican food.

  • India- every sort of curry I could find in the US and UK, every sort of bread, every sort of fried thing, every lassi and pappadum and chutneys, some soups. I don't think there is anything I don't love and want to eat RIGHT NOW

    Mexico- see India. I have also eaten Mexican in Germany and Spain (really fun!). I have not eaten so many organ dishes like menudo and tongue tacos, etc.... but then the only places selling those I've been to, I didn't have my friends or alcohol to push me. I'd do it

    France- did the snail thing.... croque monsieur... lots of "standards", all tasty. Haven't really lived there, just short touristy visits to the N Coast and Paris

    Canada- poutine off a truck! Gravy and fries together??! It was fab. I was hungry, it was cold & potentially wet, the truck was a good one, you could have killed me content right then.

    I'd love to have Korean food, or African (just a few moroccan dishes), more S American...!

  • I've had a variety from many. I can't really think of anything that I really didn't like, though I wasn't crazy about Greek food.

    I love Japanese, Indian, Eritrean, and most of all, Thai food!

  • Norwegian- Fiskepudding (fish pudding) made with cod fish
    It is actually very good. And I am very picky about my seafood.

  • I love Sushi. Indian is a huge favorite. Italian. Central American. Yup Mexican, getting some of that tonight. Chinese bores me a little and I like Thai. I'm not sure there's a food I wont eat. I love organs: Liver and kidneys are my faves. The only thing I wont eat is bugs, Don't do bugs!

  • I love sushi! Not all of it though but certain ones I love!

    Enchilads, quasidillas, tacos, faijitas LOVE IT!

    Lasanga, etc simply cant get enough pasta is my fave food!

    I however, havent really eaten much food that isnt american other culture foods you know? Things that are from other cultures but I am sure arent made the same here as they are over in the other countries. I was thinking of trying to do a new meal each week from a different culture in our house though my daughter loves other countires & learning about them!

    Oh my friend made maracoo (omg I cant spell it!) food & it was AWESOME but I dont remember exactly what it was. It was a cook out & that was the food theme she did I liked the main dishes but the desert not so much!

  • I love to eat! A huge failing. Let me make myself happy in remembrance

    Britian/Ireland- shepherd's pie, beef and kidney pudding (w/suet!- mmmm), haggis (if you don't know, don't ask- it wasn't so bad), black pudding (quite enjoyable), fried breakfast (yum, w/ brown sauce!), beans on toast, yorkshire pudding, venison, curry chips (fries with curry sauce), mushy peas, treacle pudding w/custard.... lived there for months, ate everything, was surprisingly happy tummy-wise

    Germany/Austria- every wurst ever invented. Didn't care much for white, but thueringer, currywurst... heck, EVERYTHING was good (street venders). Also various Knoedel, spaetzle dumplings, pickled red cabbage...

    Spain- octopus, various shellfish (OK), fava bean casseroles, ciders (yum!), gazpacho, tortillas (ie omelettes)- wow!, homemade hams and cheeses, suckling pig, paella... many fishes...

    Japan- tempura and sushi, love both!

    China- everything sold here
