Favorite Ethnic Food Dishes?

No...I don't mean generic like "Mexican" or "Thai"....I mean your favorite "dishes" of various Ethnic choices. Depending on where you are those Ethnic choices might vary. "American" may be an ethnic choice if you live in another country for example.

some of mine are


Thai - Panang (any meat is fine)
Indian - Chicken Biryani
Mexican - Chile Relleno
Chinese - Garlic Eggplant or Orange Beef (it's a tie)
Vietnamese - Vietnamese Iced Coffee
English - Cornish Pasty
Scottish - Scottish Meat Pie (does it have a name?)
Cuban - Palomilla Steak
Greek - Greek Potato Salad
Mediterranean - Combo shish-kabob over basatmi rice with those berries they use.

How about you?

I usually get "hot", but I can't take "Thai spicy".

Also I said any meat...but if I "had" to pick...pork is probably the one I like best in Panang too.

I guess you're sensitive to spicy food, because Thai food isn't that spicy.

I think you misunderstood me. I agree, Thai food in general is not that spicy.

Thai restaurants I have gone to usually have 4 heat levels.
mild
medium
hot
thai spicy

I am good with "hot", but their "Thai Spicy" which I only got once literally COVERED the plate with pieces of hot pepper (thai chili peppers). You could not get a single bite without about 2 or 3 pieces of hot pepper. That was the version that was too hot for me.

I forgot German. I'd have to go with good old fashioned brats and sauerkraut. I'd throw in schpatzel but that stuff is soooooo fattening I try to avoid it.

YUM Rice & Beans!

And I have to say - I can make it like the ladies (most of them are Puerto Rican and boy can they coooook - we love "bring a dish to pass" day here!) in the office (make my own sofrito, achiote oil, recaito, etc). And that sounds good ..... hmmmmm - may have to hop on the bike and make a trip to the grocery store for some good olives/capers ...
