Here in the Philippines, as my other fellowmen said, it's basically rice. For me, it seems like i haven't eaten anything if i can't eat rice. I think in China, they don't eat rice that much eventhough they're in Asia. Because a friend told me, they visited their relatives in China, there were so many meals but no rice, and they're son was looking for rice.

In he United States it's definitely corn. Corn's in practically EVERYTHING here, so if it's not our staple food, I'll be highly surprised, lol.

In the US, I think it's either bread of potatoes. Probably bread, I can't think one day in my life in the past month where I haven't had a bread or breaded product at least once. I don't think of anytime in the past year when I haven't had either bread or potatoes at least once. I'm not kidding!

Well I am Northern Irish so everyone assumes our staple food is potatoes, or chips. However I am much more fond of pasta, spaghetti as well as raviolis and other stuffed pasta. Though we always eat roast and mashed potatoes during our Christmas dinner with our turkey.

Hi! Im from the Philippines and we are both from Asia so our staple food is also rice.^_^ Its just in our culture isnt it that a meal is not complete without rice. Well, I can eat without rice for my meal as long as I have pasta or something starchy and those do resemble rice so I guess my body thinks that Im eating rice.^_^
