Every nation in this world has their own characteristics. On of the characteristics of each nation is their food. For example in Indonesia, I'm Indonesian and i love Gado-gado. Gado-gado is Indonesia food which contains only vegetables, so it is suitable for vegetarian. Would you like to share your national food here???

Hey there! Our national food or dish is "Lechon" It's a grilled pork, the whole pork. It is very delicious and tasty. I love it's crispy skin. What makes it more delicious is the sauce. It is being serve every time there is a special occasion like feasts, Christmas, birthdays, wedding, etc., etc..

i think indonesian food are really delicious. cause i can watch different international foods in cable tv. here in the philippines of course there are lots of good foods here but i think that you have more varieties in your countries. and lots of choices of places to eat at. cause i can see on one show the street foods in your city. and they look delicious those foods that are being sold there. makes me want to immediately fly over there to eat or try out those foods if i only have the money to do so to go to your country. i guess it is in the city where i can see those street foods.

no i have not gone there. i just saw it on television featured the different foods and places to eat in indonesia and i see by watching that there are wide choices of food out there. and i would definitely love to go there on day if i have the chance to. seems all asian countries have lots of different food to offer so we are really lagging behind here in the philippines in terms of food choices.

Since I live in Texas, I think that I would say that our national food is Tex Mex. Tex Mex food was invented here. I really love tamales, burritoes, chalupas, and quacamole. These things are some of my favorite food to eat.
