Now, what is your favorite dish? 

I honestly am having a hard time picking one cuisine.

I'm giving a slight edge to India for the vegetarian dishes.  If any of you out there haven't had a dosa, have one at your first opportunity.



One of my Chinese favorites, Ma Po Bean Curd:

I don't think I could pick just one. I go absolutely crazy at the lunch buffets. :)

Chinese easily.
 
And I don't particularly care for most chinese food either.

The last time I had chinese was probably a decade ago. It made me puke and I've had an aversion to it ever since.

I never go to buffets as I can never eat all I can eat.  Tongue

I just remembered this now defunct Japanese buffet that one of my old bosses liked to treat me to.  They had a sign in most of the booths imploring you to eat the rice with the sushi.  LOL  Didn't have a great supply of nigiri though.  Had some nice hot dishes and of course miso soup.

I love Indian food.  I eat Chinese more frequently but that's only because there's more places around here (only one Indian place in the county).

I don't really consider Chinese food CHINESE though, because most of the dishes served in US Chinese restaurants were in fact invented in the US.  My go-to dishes are kung pao and Singapore rice noodles.

There's only one Indian place I've been to that has dosai, and that's a vegetarian place in Parma (Cleveland suburb) specializing in Southern Indian cuisine.  I have not ordered one, because how the hell do you eat that big ungainly thing?  Maybe I should watch and learn.....

Here's a question that goes hand in hand with the main question:  How spicy do you like it?

Mysore of course.  By the way, big fan of Singapore rice noodles, too.  Big smile

Now that you mention it, I don't think I've ever eaten a whole one in one sitting.  Reheats nicely in a toaster oven though.

I'm not sure. I love Indian, but I've only really eaten American Chinese, not authentic Chinese.

I don't like curry, so it's obvious.

BTW: Peruvian Chinese food is the best in the world, I eaten Chinese in several country and none remotely compares, even when 99.99% of the people (including myself) eat it with fork and knife.

Chinese, by far.

I grew up with Indian food, and curry makes me sick.  While there is some good Indian food, I think I've just had too much of it.
