Name an ethnic cuisine you tend to crave A LOT.

36 posts in this topic

Mexican, Italian, and Chinese may as well be American...they don't count.

Need to try Cuban...

Haven't had Ethiopian in a minute.....

But dammit, I feel like I can eat Indian food three times a week, two days in a row, and never get sick of it.

Got so bad that one month, I decided I had to avoid the Indian spots.

I can get with most all Indian cooking, from spinach curry (sag) to tandoori chicken drumsticks (best dark meat there is, second only to tandoori thighs) to gulab jamun.

I mean, really, I just did the Indian buffet over the weekend, and I'm looking to see if I feel like paying $11 to go this week.

Any of you guys like this?

I love Thai and Indian in particular. I also get a craving for Middle Eastern (particularly Lebanese)...there is a really good Lebanese restaurant a few min from my office I find my self going there every couple of weeks. I have Cuban once in a while, only a couple of Cuban restaurants here. Love Vietnamese, esp. rice bowls and pho.

I went w/ an Indian friend to a high-end Indian place Sunday night..way out in the southwest suburbs, great view of the mountains and had some dal (lentils), chilli chicken for an appetizer, garlic naan, a couple Kingfishers, and something they call chicken pepper fry..delicious. Dinner conversation was funny, we mostly talked about Scranton, PA, where he travels to every other week for work.

Wow... I've never heard of a Cuban, Equadorian or Ethiopian restaurant. I thought Ethiopians were starving and ate whatever they could find???

For me it's Japanese. I tend to have sushi at least once a week.

Thai I like too, but that's a much rarer thing.

Wow.

You live in Toronto and don't get any of this? Never seen Ethiopians in your city?

I'm sure that those restaurants probably exist somewhere.

In the area where I live and especially the area around my company's head office, it's pretty much all Asian food. Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Indian, Viet. That pretty much sums it up.

Gosh guys, around here I just crave the usual Mexican. There is a dish called "cincronecatas" that is like a quesadilla with a corn tortilla. Its filled with ham, jack cheese, onions, and tomatoes. Very good!

Oh, I forgot Mexican and Greek.

Also REAL Chinese. That Chicken Ball - American Chinese stuff is NASTY.

Greek food is awesome. I love all the fresh flavors in that and Italian. A Gyro does sound good.

Mexican, Greek, Thai, and Chinese are the ones I like...I've had Japanese before but wasn't really a fan. A buddy of mine goes to an Ethiopian restaurant in Des Moines...I might have to try it out sometime. Authentic Italian food is great too, probably my favorite. There's a little restaurant near 6th and Mulberry called the Trattoria...it's pretty much like being back in Italy.

You know, that's the first thing I thought when I was invited to dinner at an Ethiopian restaurant, but it was some of the most delicious food I've ever had.

For me it's sushi as well. I think I could eat it every day and not get tired..

Really enjoy Thai, Indian, Viet and Middle Eastern food. Have them all at least a few times a month as the restaurants are all within a few miles of home. I've had Ethiopian too but many years ago, have to have it again soon to dash my memory. Not a big sushi fan.

KC, bud, glad to see you're back.

Greek food is something I actually get a craving for. I love it. I don't crave Italian food, but I think that it is generally better cuisine and tend to like it more...especially when it's Italian and NOT Eye-talian (oval casserole hiding contents under a skin of mozzarella and cooked by a Hispanic chef that has cooked at many of these restaurants).

KC, the Mykonos lunch buffet* on Centre Street in Calgary is now G.U. (geographically undesirable) for you!

*drooling thinking about it!

It sure is. I miss that place. The best food in CGY. I moved down to Montana after ahe breakup of my relationship. I am close enough to go up for weekend trips.

After rereading these posts, I am hungry for a gyro.

I'm always a fan of Japanese food, along with a good bit of Thai, haven't every had Indian, but I've heard is great. I'm also a big fan of traditional Italian and Mexican.

Mmmmmm... I'd like to try that. I had some wasabi-flavored macadameia nuts in Hawaii...they rocked.

Toronto is fantastic for different food... and I crave too much of it regularly.

Greek food- best gyros in the city at Messini on the Danforth

Japanese- for a regular meal, Big Sushi on Bloor is my favorite... I went to an all you can eat sushi place last week called Echo Sushi on Yonge Street in Davisville that was very good too.

Thai- I don't even know if it's 'real', but I love Green Mango spots.

I've been meaning to get out to El Asador for some real Mexican food too- another place on Bloor in the Annex.
