    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.

    Green chili. Not chopped up bits of canned Hatch chiles. Gag me. No I mean real green chili made of Pueblo chiles stewed with pork, tomatoes and a little flour. The real stuff, like you get in Pueblo. Not this "verde" crap. And Hatch just has better marketing to boost their inferior product!

    Also love Thai red curry. Especially with pork. Just don't ask me to pronounce it.

    I am SUPER picky about Chinese food, but from a good place I LOVE me some Mushu!

    All kinds of curry are my absolute favorite Ethnic food, mainly the creamy varieties like madras and butter chicken. I make at least two curries a week and don't plan on stopping any time soon.

    I have a lot more ethnic favorites like shawarma from the Middle East, Turkish pizza & baklava, Indonesian satay and stews and so on, but curry does top them all.

    Northern Italian is a favorite risotto with porcini mushrooms. Another favorite is,
    Pasta carbonara with real prosciutto.

    I love Greek food. Of course, when I cook it myself, I make sure that I bulk up the recipe with extra calories. The occasional Greek meal in a restaurant doesn't do too much damage to my figure.

    Who serves Jägerschnitzel with green beans???
    (... much as I like them...)

    If you go Swabian with Spätzle as carbs - you would still have a salad as the vegetable side.....
