British. Although it almost died out, traditional British food is making a real comeback and a lot of it is excellent. Forget the soggy fish and chips you had in London (where it's almost impossible to get proper fish & chips anyway, although 2 Brothers in Finchley is well worth a visit), good Britsh food rocks!

I can't resist our portuguese food, particularly the typical from PORTO. Mediterranean from the list.

"Other" food is actually wax fruit and is highly not recommended. Tongue

FOOD!!!  Hot damn this is the thread for me.
 
I cast my vote for "Other Asian".  Thai, Korean, Vietnamese, Cambodian - these make me very happy.  I've also gotten into Japanese fairly recently, though I'm not sold on the idea of sushi/sashimi.  Give me teppanyaki!  And Indian is awesome as well.
 
A bit of amusement re chopsticks.  Americans as a rule are not known for using them.  I was in a Japanese place earlier this year, and the server seemed genuinely surprised that I, a typical American white person, knew how to use chopsticks!  I never use them with Chinese - it was Korean and Vietnamese cuisine that convinced me I should learn to use them.
 
My three favorite moments of restaurant cluelessness:
3) Mexican place.  I order arroz con pollo.  Server (yanqui) says, "You want that with the chicken or the shrimp?"  I reply, "Well.... pollo does mean chicken...."
2) Indian place.  A guy at a nearby table complains that there are no beef items on the menu.  DUH!
1) Thai place.  A guy at a nearby table, greatly enjoying his food, says, "Boy, this is the best Chinese I ever had!"
 
 
BRUTAL.

Well if you're at a vegetarian Indian restaurant, you won't be getting meat in any form, and if it's a good joint, you won't be missing it.  Indian vegetarian is one of the finest vegetarian cuisines on the planet.  Dosa, dosa, dosa....

Make mine mysore please. Big smile

If you want to see something really funny watch an ignorant guy ordering and eating extra spicy vindaloo.LOL
