Favorite type of food?

46 posts in this topic

We all like talking about food. It's too hard to construct a mutliple-choice poll for this, so I'm just listing the food I like.

1) Italian food - some of it is better than an orgasm

2) Greek food - a lot of Middle Eastern food is equally good - there are some awesome Greek combo platters

caution: there is some bad Greek food out there and, if it's lamb, it has to be fresh and not gamy

3) American food - reliable

The food I can't stand is of the variety that will make you "keel over" from the smell when you walk into the place that serves it - Ethiopian, Indian and Thai

Your favorite food(s)? (What foods don't you like?)

You and I have nothing in common. :spin:

(Southern can be good and I always drop in to eat at Mary Mac's when in ATL)

Creamy Cheesy Mac -n- Cheese with a crunchy top, Oven Baked.

Love Indian Food

Love Korean and Japan Food. Course went to college in Japan. Nothing better than Sushi and a woman who pours the beer into your mouth with a kiss. :P

American

Some German, Yup my german relative would kill me. :D

Just about willing to try almost anything at least once and then I can say I do not like it.

Woman and Food what better combo.

Thai

Wow, I feel like a lone wolf. Am I the ONLY person that doesn't like Thai?

Same thing at work:

"Let's go get Thai."

"You can go without me."

Top 15, in order of preference:

1. Thai

2. Italian

3. Mediterranean/Middle Eastern (Greek, Iranian, Lebanese, Israeli, Morrocan, etc---there are a couple great Israeli restaurants here in Phoenix that I like a lot).

4. American

4. Indian (both northern and southern, and Nepalese).

5. Vietnamese

6. French

7. Southern

8. S./Central American--Mexican, Peruvian, Argentinian, Brasilian

9. Japanese

10. German

11. Chinese

12. Sri Lankan (some of the spiciest and most flavourful I've had).

13. Mongolian

14. Korean

15. Ethiopean

(I've never wanted 'keel over' walking into an Ethiopian, Indian or Thai restaurant--I love the scent of lots of spices and ingredients...then again, I have a very poor sense of smell, too much perma-congestion).

I've also enjoyed Jewish, Carribean, West African (Ghanan), some Polish.... Not much of a fan of Russian dishes.

I think my dislikes are not so much specific cuisines but certain ingredients---i.e. I won't touch eggplant or food made from internal organs.

Moltie, have you ever tried Russian food? It sounds like it might be good. I wonder what it's main staples are...

Maybe it depends on what you order, or which restaurant you go to?

A lot of Thai dishes aren't too different from Chinese dishes. You could always get fried rice, or dishes that aren't garnished with a lot of flavors... steamed mussels, for example. Pad see ew is almost identical to Chinese stir-fried rice noodle with broccoli, egg, and beef. I can't imagine there being anything offensive in that.

I've had a few dishes that were supposed to be Russian, didn't really care for it. Can't remember what was in it, some kind of cold soup that tasted like old socks, IIRC. One of my best friends is of Russian ancestry, but he doesn't cook any Russian dishes, just Jewish staples (matzo, corned beef, etc).

I got burned twice. Both times, I said "ZERO stars"...that means MILD, Mr. Order Taker...

They didn't get it...or he has a warped sense of humor. I went home from work sick both times.

Now, mind you, I love Cantonese Chinese food and some of the milder, blander dishes...the vegetable chow meins, the beef broccoli, cashew chicken, lemon/orange chicken and the soups...provided they don't have a pungent aftertaste and don't punch you in the stomach when you go back to work.

A coworker made too much jambalaya and he brought some in to work today. It was :hot: and tasty!

I love spicy salmon roll, I get a double order of that when I go Japanese. Oh and I have to have :hot: Chinese mustard with my fried noodle, no duck sauce for me.

Now I may not go near it. Since I know you're a food connoisseur, I would imagine you like French food.

Since they generally don't have French restaurants all over the place, I will have to say it is delicious, when you feel like splurging a little.

I like :hot: foods as well... unfortunately I can't have them like I used to since my surgery. For some reason, the sensation isn't there--like the nerves didn't reconnect after the surgery. It's spicy on my tongue, but it's an uncomfortable tingling in my mouth... it's very weird.

I love spicy salmon rolls too... and the other roll I'm drawing a blank--it has soft shell crab in it. Alaskan? I can't remember.

Speaking of degrees of hot, usually Thai places have no spice, mild, medium, hot and Thai hot...I used to have a coworker that I was very competitive with--when i'd order hot, he'd order Thai hot. One time, I ordered double Thai hot---he ordered quadruple Thai hot...his whole noodle dish was covered in red. Don't know how he finished it. These days, I don't do Thai hot anymore--usually just mild or medium. Without downing a few Immodium before and after (and guzzling Pepto-Bismol afterwards), I can't handle really spicy food anymore. It's not much fun not being able to make it home without firehosing.

Mexican is my favorite. I also like to go to good ol' American all-you-can-stuff buffets.

What I don't care for: Ethiopean, Indian, Thai, and Vietnamese.

I love Alaskan food. Nothing beats a delicious salmon filet broiled then glazed with my favourite BBQ sauce mixed with orange juice and chives. :drool:
