I love all kinds of ethnic food, like middle eastern, thai, chinese, indian, japanese. Thinking about all these types is making me hungry actually! however, I would say my favorite is Japanese. I especially love sushi and udon soups. What is your favorite type of ethnic food? Why? What are some good dishes that are popular for that type of food?

Italian food is probably my all time favorite. My Grandfather was Italian and used to cook the family favorites like Spaghetti with meatballs of course, Lasagna, Pasta and Bean soup, Eggplant Parmesan and Chicken Cacciatore and he always made incredible table relishes like Giardinera with wild mushrooms and hot peppers that he grew in his garden. He grew all his own herbs, tomatoes, peppers and beans too so everything tasted so fresh. I love Greek food too. My favorite dishes are Spanakopita, Pastitsio, Dolmades and Kalamarikia. Oh boy I'm hungry now!

My absolute favourite is Greek. I can never get enough souvlaki, greek lemon potatoes, and lots of tzatziki to smother everything in! I also like Ukrainian, my mom's side of the family is largely Ukrainian/Icelandic, and it's great comfort food. Perogies, kielbasa, cabbage rolls, mmmmm....

That's the danger of writing food articles; it always makes you hungry! I love Thai food, as well as Indian. Mediterranean food is great, too! Shish Kabobs and taouk are great. I also love a good Sonora-style burrito from Arizona, nothing like chicken, beans, cheese, rice and french fries inside a burrito.

My most favorite ethnic food is Thai. I love Tom Kha Kai, peanut dressing, vegie spring rolls, thai sweet pepper sauce, pan ang curry, pad thai. I love sticky rice with mangos and coconut ice cream as well. I'm interested in Indian food but it seems like every time I go out for it the food is completely different. I like Jaipur vegetables, I like curry, masala, naan bread, riatta, basmati rice, and rose ice cream. I like Meditteranian food as well... Greek salad, tzatski, and some kind of vegetarian pepper dish we got at the Sponge Docks.

I have never tried middle eastern, thai, indian or japenese foods. I would like to someday, but I am a very picky eater and have not ventured far from my daily standard diet. I do love chinese food, and my favorite things are the crab rangoons, hot and sour soup, and kung pao beef. I also like almost any kind of mexican food, the spicier the better.

I like so many kinds of ethnic food that it would be difficult for me to pick one. I really like Italian food and that would be my first choice, followed by Japanese, Chinese, Thai and then Middle Eastern food. I do really like Greek and Turkish food very much. My favorite Italian dish is eggplant rollatini and pasta ala vodka.

I am absolutely in love with Thai food. I love it more than anything else because I love the herbs and spices in the dishes. I think my favourites would be the grapefruit salad (it's really fresh and refreshing, it's perfect to eat in the summer time, they add a little chilly in it, so it's a little spicy); and all green and red Thai curry. I love their green beef or chicken curry with rice, I couldn't stop eating it once I start. I love the strong coconut scent in the curry and it's strong flavour. Now I am hungry *laughs*.

My favorites would be chinese food, Italian food and Mexican food. For chinese food my favories would be egg drop soup and pepper steak. Sweet and sour chicken is pretty good also. Intalian food standouts would be spagetti, lasagna, feuttci alfredo with grilled chicken or steak and minestrone soup. My favorite mexican food would probably be chicken chimichangas with cheese sauce. Gotta love taco's and burrito's too.

Mmm, Thai food is definitely my favorite. I love the creamy coconut base that a lot of the soups and curries are cooked in.

I havent had much ethnic foods. I live in a small town and there aren't many resturants near us...just fast food. And I dont think that even the city about 2 hours away from us has resturaunts like that. MABY. I know that they do have a sushi bar...Hubby said he would take me this summer. I told him he better have enough money to take me to RED LOBSTER just incase I dont like it, LOL. I would like to try different things though. I do at chineese ALL THE TIME. I order it at least once a week. YUMMO! I have sooo many fav dishes it is hard to decide which is my favorite. Mexican is considered Ethnic right? LOL. THATS MY FAV. I like ANYTHING MEXICAN...............YYYYYYYUMMMMMMMMM!

so many choices I am especially fond of Japanese Thai polynesian philipino Greek German Italian Mexican etc. etc. etc. etc. It is too difficult to pick a favorite, I am such a mood eater, my favorite can change at any given moment. I am kind of partial to good ole american beef and potato too! my least favorite would have to be east indian I have a repulsian to curry (the odor, the taste etc)
