A Question Of The Palate

There have been many questions about "Where Is The Best Place To Eat", "What City Has The Best Food", "Where Is The Most Romantic Place To Eat". But the question I would like to know is this. If you had to limit yourself to only eat one type of cultural food (Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Spanish, German, French, etc.) what would it be?

    Wow, that's a tough one. I'm leaning toward Japanese because it's really pretty diverse. You go from Japanese curry to ramen to sushi to okonomiyaki and all around! It covers a lot of ground.

    Oddly enough, I find myself craving Mexican/Spanish food more than anything. I say "oddly" because I didn't have any of this type of food growing up in North Dakota. When I moved to Arkansas, right out of college, and friends would be making plans for a dinner out-I would say "anything but Mexican" because I didn't understand what much of the food was. Once I moved to Houston, I finally got it. Now, I have to have Mexican or Spanish food several times a week, we make it at home and even though a jalapeno almost killed me the first time I tried one, everything HAS to have fresh jalapenos on it these days!

    If I had to go out on a limb with the one, I would answer Greek! With the Mediterranean diet, a nice mix of meat and seafood, decent wine and even beer still, there's not much you'd be totally lacking with this choice. And I think in the end this may be healthier long term than some other choices that sound equally appealing, such as Italian or Spanish.

    Korean for me. I lived in Korea for 3 1/2 years and lost lots of weight living there without even trying cause it's so healthy. I ate congbiji chigae everyday( soup with kimchi, beans, and beef) for lunch with sides of banchan(I.e. An assortment of vegetables that vary each day with kimchi). For dinner, I would eat Kalbi (marinated korean beef) or dwaejibulgogi (spicy chicken) with rice and banchan. Mostly water, homemade food, and no msg. I ordered their well being rice when I could(healthy purplish color rice mixed with beans). I had fire chicken when I could find it, the wonderful soups, casseroles, etc. I could go on and on. Disclaimer: I'm not Korean so I'm not obligated to pick this. I live Korean food! The best part of eating in Korea was my meals were almost always $5-$7 only in Seoul. My favorite road food was sugary fried potatoes called kamjatong. Yum! I miss those too!

      Korean food is pretty delicious. I get along really well with kimchi, and all the banchan are just delicious (fish cakes and anchovies are probably my favorite). · (0 likelikes)

    This is an interesting question, mostly because so many cultures have mixed and mingled that even 'traditional' foods have taken on a flair that can be seen moving from district to district. That being said, I would have to say food from the southern coastal area of Spain around Rota (Spain). The variety of dishes are overwhelming, and I could probably spend years eating my way through Rota alone. One of my fondest dishes was a roasted chicken that was basted with orange juice, Sangria wine, Rosemary, and several other flavors that escaped me. At one point in my life I had a wonderful photo of a wall of chickens turning in front of a wall of burners, with a large trough at the bottom that contained the juices and wine. Moving north in Spain would also be a culinary adventure!

    This is a really tough one, but I would have to say French. When I was living in Italy and Spain, the quality of the food was great, but I grew bored after a few months. I think French food delivers on both variety, quality, and flavor for me. Love how simple the food can be, but also how chefs who want to push boundaries can add complexity to it as well.

    This is a tough one! I really can't narrow it down to one, so I'll go with my top three -- and they're all completely different:

    • Japanese: specifically anything that involves raw fish
    • Italian: the best carbs to spend my carb allowance on!
    • Mexican: something very comforting about a giant burrito, quesadilla or taco...

    Although I love Indian and Greek, I'd have to say Spanish because of the variety there.

    The beef and pork (hello, jamon serrano) are extremely high quality and the variety of seafood is mind blowing. I'd never get bored. There is good wine and fresh olive oil, beautiful farms with artichokes (my favorite veggie).

    The regional differences add variety, so if I need a little zing, I can head to Andalucia for food with a little Moroccan flair.

    The chefs are very creative with flavors even while keeping true to tradition.

    Japanese would be my first choice but since I wouldn't want to ruin it since I would be eating it forever I have to go with my second favorite and that would be Italian or Mediterranean generally for me. Wine , olive oil, salamis , seafood. Tons more to list whats not to love!
