El Pote in NYC, hole in the wall, tight space... but the Paella is out of this world
I love me some Paella! I spent 3 years in Spain and have been hooked ever since!
(+1 to Paella)
This is not in any way inclusive, and I'm trying my best to not make it a mile long. lol
Latin American and the Caribbean - Pretty much everything. lol Some examples include Arroz con gandules, tacos (with extra cilantro), Jamaican oxtail, Jerk anything, pernil, arepas, empanadas,
Indian - Naan, Lassis, chicken tandoori, tikka masala, goat curry, samosas, korma
Korean - Bulgolgi, Yaki mandu, Kimbap, Dolsot bibimbap (with lots of gochujang), Kimchi
Japanese - Sushi/Sashimi/Nigiri, teriyaki, tonkatsu, yakitori
British - Beef Wellington, fish and chips
Irish - Bangers and mash with Guinness.
Thai - All the curries, Larb gai, Thai tea
Vietnamese - Broken rice, spring rolls

Hawaiian - Huli Huli chicken, Kalua pig, adding pineapple to meat dishes (and it goes on pizza )
Chamorro - Kelaguen, red rice, spam fried rice
Filipino - Lumpia, Pancit, Bistek, Adobo
Isn't food just awesome?
Please tell me that you learned how to make it!!! Then immediately post the recipe.
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.
wow, you definitely are a food connoisseur no doubt. Yes, food is great, but it can also be ones enemy.
Fattoush Salad & chicken shawarma
Almost anything Authentic Mexican
Pasta and salads
And a good bbq with or without sauce.
