    I am definitely down with the Bulgogi, Yaki Mandu, and even the Kimchi on occassion. Love me some Huli Huli chicken (which reminds me that I need to order some more huli huli sauce). I have some Lumpia in the freezer and I'll be getting some Adobo probably next week!

    A few of my favorites:

    • Ethiopian - gomen (greens), tikil gomen (cabbage and carrots in spicy butter), and injera (tangy, spongy flat bread made with teff)
    • Indian - malai kofta (ground spicy veggie balls in creamy tomato sauce, pakoras (round veggie fritters)
    • Korean - bibimbap (assorted veggies, tofu or another protein, and a soft-fried egg served over rice)
    • Burmese - tea leaf salad (fermented tea leaves, spices, nuts, and seeds)

    My next place to try is a local Venezuelan place that features arepas -- a new adventure. :)

    I mostly eat only ethnic foods unless I cook at home. When I go out it’s rarely to a typical American restaurant. If it’s not ethnic it’s veg/vegan. My fave sushi ever is Beyond Sushi in NYC - all vegan and yes, I promise, it’s amazing. Now when my family is there without me, they (all omnivores) always go there. I wish they would open up a location where I live, but that’s a pipe dream.

    Now I want to eat all the things because just typing this is making me hungry.

    I consider Cajun ethnic because of the blend of countries that inspire the food. ;) Lately, I have been trying Hungarian dishes as Hungary is one of my favorite countries.
