I like Thai, Indian, Italian and Mexican but I voted BRITISH. Someone had to, if only to recognise the sheer culinary magnificence of Fish and Chips (preferably eaten at the seaside and subtly enhanced with ketchup, vinegar and mushy peas.).

Mushy peas are essential to the Fish and Chips experience - ideally they need to be a bit minty....

Pity them , for they do not understand,  LOLShocked    Minty, mushy, green peas, with ketchup and vinegar as condiment for the battered haddock, and of course somehow salvaged with Belgian french fries. Confused  We are doomed to starve Sleepy

Poutine is gruesome , spongyheavy -fat laden fries smothered in often packaged gravy with nary a spice in sight with curds of spongy cheese. This is not food , its edible crap.Ouch  Don't get me going on Moroccan, the ex was from there and I am still expiating the poison (hahaha) . Actually, of all the North African cuisines, it is by FAR the tastiest .

IndeedClap. Actually, only a part of Italian cuisine (that from the South) can be considered Mediterranean, sharing many of the same ingredients with other cuisines of the area. If you go to Northern Italy, you'll find dishes that have very little in common with those, say, of Greece or Morocco, relying heavily on dairy products and using rice rather than pasta. Risotto (one of my favourite dishes both to eat and to cook, as Micky knowsWink) comes from the rice-growing areas of Piedmont and Lombardy, and, not incidentally, is made with butter rather than olive oil.

Anyway, I'll be happy to talk about Italian cuisine any time you like - even if I'm about to leave my country, I still intend to cook Italian, at least occasionally. I am not chauvinistic when it comes to food, though, and I do love other cuisines as well - I've tried quite a few, and always enjoyed what I had (especially when prepared with good-quality ingredients). And I do agree with David about British cuisineWink...

This poll is so unfair simply because there's so many cuisines around the world and I've never met one I didn't like.  By the way, you did make a glaring omission with African as a general category as well, other than the Mediterranean portions of Africa. 

One of the great things I like about living in the Atlanta area is you get just about anything you want somewhere around town.

My favorite for the moment is Caribbean, Jamaican in particular, but many of the others are always a close second. Big smile

I also like to eat my way through different cuisines. the German one has some highlights too; it is not just sauerkraut with mashed potatoes and knuckle of pork. Germany is especially well known for its very many different kinds of bread and sausages; no other country has as many varieties of them as Germany. and of course this can be said about beer too.  there are, for example, 34 different kinds of beer in Dortmund alone

Indian for me. All the other nationalities have yet to top the great Lamb Pathia. Utterly delicious!
