I see you made me a new poll!

I pick Vietnamese, although all are of course pretty darn good

as much as I love Korean and Japanese, Vietnam has some of the tastiest and most interesting cuisine on the planet

I've got a couple more polls in mind: Mediterranean and Carribean would be fun.
Spanish, Italian, Greek, Lebanese, Turkish.  We have restaurants around town that do those.
Jamaican, Cuban, Puerto Rican.

I decided to go for the one I have most often, Japanese.  Give me some good sushi with wasabi some miso soup, and I'm in heaven.  One of my go to dishes to make at home is marinated raw tuna.

Love 'em all.  I went with Vietnamese because it's the least commonly found, and a good bowl of pho is like Christmas in your mouth.  I live an hour away from Cleveland, the nearest city with Viet eateries, so when I need a pho fix, I make a day of it.

I'm a fairly recent convert to Japanese, although I still won't eat sushi.  Thai is rapidly gaining adherents (green curry is my default dish).  I have to travel a bit for Korean, but not as far as for Viet - Cuyahoga Falls has a very good Korean place, they make an awesome tak bulgoki.

Cambodian is another good cuisine.  Gotta travel to Cleveland for that too.  Basically it's like a cross between Thai and Viet with a few ideas of its own.


WORSHIP SMARF!

Not trying to make you jealous or anything:

I live and work in the area of probably the coolest road in Atlanta - Buford Highway (or as like to call it Bruford Tongue).  Drive up from the bottom, map wise, and you can get all kinds of major Asian except Indian and Japanese, I think. The restaurant with the Japanese buffet closed.  Several Taquerias, Tex-Mex, Mex-Mex, and the Buford Highway Farmer's Market, which is the go to place for picking up world cuisine items. 

Sadly, the Vietnamese restaurant in Clarkeston quit doing the French sandwiches.  Nice fresh and fried rolls in the cuisine.

Thanks to all the other restaurants, I don't go out for the BBQ often.  There's this place called Pig 'n' Chik http://pignchik.net/

that I've probably been to more than any other. LOL

Can't say I've had much Korean or Vietnamese, but I love teriyaki, sushi, sashimi, and practically everything I've had Japanese. I've recently started getting into Thai, and it has a very spicy and wide palate. It may have more variety, I don't know, but my instincts told me Japanese.

Americanized Chinese, however, will always win. :)

Well, in either case, Japanese.

I've only eaten twice korean, but it was delicious; >>> Frying beef slices upon a convex grill with spiced oil

 

Thai and Viet foods are much more refined (spice-wise)  and subtle than Japanese , IMHO
