Default Favorite non-American food

Having some Chinese for lunch, which I hear isn't real Chinese food anyway, and was thinking, what are the most popular/favorite non-American food? I love some Thai, Japanese, Mexican, Peruvian, some Middle Eastern, and some other stuff that I can't think of right now.

Poll to come because I just figured out how to make one and this power demands to be used.

Go.

Probably Sushi is my favorite - though I love Pho. Korean is very good too. I like any Asian food, really. New American is my favorite non-foreign cuisine.

I have issues with certain types of foods that are more expensive than they should be, especially when they were traditionally made very inexpensively and restaurants want to charge more.

I don't believe in expensive Mexican food, for example. I think the best Mexican food is cheap out of one of those family owned restaurants in north Denver or from a street vendor. Hacienda Colorado is ridiculous to me. Mexican ingredients are cheap so if you're paying 10 bucks for a burrito, something isn't right. Same thing for the Mediterranean food.

I love sushi and forgot about Korean. There is a good Korean barbeque not far from me.

After eating Pho, I felt like I ate nothing.

Oh yes. Mexican is probably my favorite, for obvious reasons, but sushi is special. My one son and I take each other for sushi on our birthdays. LOVE IT, especially with eel sauce.

cmon Kaylore Mexican cuisine is about a lot more then a burrito or a taco. Also a lot of what you pay for in a restaurant is service, them preparing your food, not just how much the ingredients cost.

Also Mexican food has tons of delicious seafood dishes and many other that contain a lot more then beans, cheese and a tortilla.

first!!!!

anyways, give italian and mexican some considerations. but its always the same stuff. nothing different.

italian, you got pasta with different sauces of which i can only eat the tomato paste because the white sauce is too filling.

mexican involves everything corn and salsa. nothing creative.

the different foods i can get in a japanese, chinese and vietnamese restaurant is unreal. forget the bullcrap chinese restaurants. i want the authentic restaurants. damn pf changs and pei wei gives chinese food a bad name. been to pf changs once, i looked at the menu and just shook my head.

thai is good too, but too expensive
korean is awesome as well, but the menu isn't that huge either.

i live in the suburbs of dallas. we got our share of tex mex here.

to me, its the same stuff. choice of chicken or beef with rice or beans wrapped in a corn or flour tortilla.

everything is based on corn, beans and either chicken or beef. no real exotic spices and herbs. even when it comes to desert, its sopaipilla and flan cake.

now i been to some nice mexican joints that served something exotic like fried plantains and pheasants. taste great btw, but on the side is a choice of refried or black beans. c'mon, can i get something besides beans.

you go to any mexican restaurant, its 2-3 pages max on the menu. go to an authentic chinese restaurant and its 10 pages long.

on saturday/sunday afternoon, its dim sum. they have everything. at night, enjoy hot pot. hell yes, they give you all different types of meat, 5 different types of mushroom, different types of noodles, different types of veggies and you cook it in a pot in front of you. how awesome is that.

if you don't like chinese food, its because you haven't been to one that isn't cooked by a mexican in the kitchen or you are very closed minded.

Love me some dim sum and hot pot! My favorite hot pot item is fish cakes- as long as they are good fish cakes. Bad fish cakes can be absolutely horrible though.

I'm bias, but Chinese still does it for me. But it has to be real Chinese. Like Dim Sum and the stuff off the secret menu. Next would be any Asian food except Sushi. After that would be Mexican. I love Mexican hamburgers (I know its not Mexican).

According to a former Chinese colleague of mine this is true. He had been in the U.S. (from near Beijing) for less than 2 years when I first started working with him. And every "Chinese food" item I would ask him about he said they didn't eat in China. His mother came to visit and they had me over for a home cooked Chinese meal and it wasn't anything like what we get from Chinese takeout places. He told me that better Chinese restaurants have a more authentic Chinese menu they give to Chinese patrons.

I remember specifically asking him about this, and his response was "no such thing". But, perhaps there is some variation of it in some parts of China? I'm just going by what he told me.

I refuse to believe that chicken nuggets in sweet and sour sauce is not straight off the boat.
