    Ethnic is relative depending on where you live.

    I like Japanese food though, particularly sashimi and sushi! icon_razz.gif

    French-based haute cuisine. You know, the stuff involving truffles caviar foie gras, or any combo thereof.

    I think it qualifies as a form of ethnic food because the experience is so outside my realm of day-to-day eating. Same goes for the price tag.

    From my years (ahem) of food experience, I would consider a true "ethinic" cuisine one that can be lifted from its native environment, set into a foreign situation, and appear distinct.
    btw, that means most American cuisine could be represented by Fast Food...

    Lahmacun!

    1. Falafel w/ tahini sauce - I go to this place called 'Giant Burger' near my university about every week just for the falafel! Unfortunately, making falafel at home and from scratch didn't go as well, but from the box, I would say that Sadaf is my favorite brand of falafel mix.

    2. Shiro wot w/ injera - my good friend is Ethiopian and when we lived together, he introduced me to shiro wot, a mixture of chickpea powder and a group of spices called 'berbere'. On my last trip to Oakland, I went to a shop called 'Brundo' and bought about 10 lbs. worth of it. It's about the only food that'll make me consider sourdough bread palatable.

    i was in Rome, Italy, recently and my friend and I found a place serving "American Breekfast". we were desperate for a brunch kind of eggy breakfast after a week in a hotel which only provided automatic machine capuccinos, high-fructose syrup 'energy juice' and sugar drenched croissants with jam. the "American breekfast" consisted of 2 pieces of concrete toast, 2 runny eggs, served on top of thin slices of cooked ham. icon_eek.gif which isn't far from the original, but you can see how its not quite right.

    When I was in Paris, I tried this dish and it was incredible. It was duck and there was this gravy sauce over it. As time passes by, I'm slowly forgetting the very details of the dish, but it was so good. Does anybody of an idea of what it could have been? I'm dying to go back to Paris and find that dish again.

    I've tried Asian duck and other ducks before and its truly disgusting, in my opinion. (I'm never eating duck again, until a fucking hot French Parisian man cooked it.)

    But anyone who has an idea of what I might had tasted in Paris, please inbox me!

    Other than this, When I was in Morocco, I had the best couscous of my life. BEST EVER.

    Pizza from Italy has got to be the best pizza though. I've always been disgusted by the thought of trying anchovies on pizza, but now I love it. When you go to a real local pizza bakery in Rome, or wherever in Italy, pizza's definitely a controlled substance drug. Why try MDMA when you can eat real Italian pizza?

    Being part Vietnamese, nothing beats Beef Pho though. icon_smile.gif

    South African, Canadian and Chinese are nationalities, not ethnicities.

    Yum. One of mine too.

    Chinese is my favorite though. Mapo tofu, twice cooked pork belly, "ants climbing on trees," bitter melon with black bean sauce, ong choi with preserved bean curd, I could go on forever.

    I got a good laugh from the guy who listed Outback as Australian food. icon_biggrin.gif
