I'm inclined to agree; with the exception of the cousine from the Indian subcontinent, anything east of Iran makes me queasy.

If we can revive the Mexican vs. Italian poll, we can dredge this one up too.

I understand that Thai places are starting to "water down" their cuisine to suit the undeveloped tastebuds of the average American - making everything sweeter and what not.  It looks like Thai in America is going to end up as a slightly more exotic version of Chinese.

And that cheeses me off.

Thai then Japanese - though my first experience of Japanese food was in San Jose, CA and found it bland and uninteresting, so much so it put me off trying it again for a good 15 years. It was only through my wife and daughter literally dragging be into one of the Wagamama resturant chains for a bowl of ramen noodles that I realised I was woefully mislead by what I'd eaten in California. (Although Wagamama is very westernised Japanese cuisine - as are most sushi bars I suspect). 
 
This year I celebrated my birthday in a Thai/Japanese fusion resturant, which for me was pretty much the perfect combination.

I'm actually half Thai on my mother's side so I've been having Thai food regularly all my life. I don't have it as much anymore since my mom has kind of lost her Thai touch from living in Canada for many years. I love it though, especially stir fry. Thumbs Up

Yeah, we have the same problem, most Thai restaurants around here serve "americanized" dishes.

Funny that almost all of these "cuisines" are derivatives of another cuisine.

I've always thought Korean food kind of sucks, seems I'm not alone. Thai for me.

I like them all, though Japanese would usually get my vote. But there are too few votes for Korean, so my vote goes there. I love bulgogi and kim-chi.

Whenever I eat Korean food, I feel I could've made it myself which is not a compliment. It often seems to be just stuff in a bowl but with less craftsmanship than Chinese or Japanese.

Are you sure you aren't having North Korean instead of South Korean? Tongue

Well, I can't see having a boiling bowl of tofu soup on a plate.

South Korean cuisine = stuff in a bowl.

 
North Korean cuisine = bowl.

The Korean menu does seem rather soup-intensive, at least at the place I go to.  I'm a bulgoki fan myself - puts fajitas to shame.

And I do enjoy the banchan (sides), including kimchi.  (Figure this out - I don't like sauerkraut but I do like kimchi, despite the fact that they're both pickled cabbage.  Maybe the spiciness makes the difference?)
