Just wondering what everybody likes to eat like American, Indian, Mexican, Chinese, Italian, Mongolian, Japanese, Greek food, etc...

I like hot and spicy food so I go for Indian food like Curry Chicken, Nann, Nasi Bryani.

What about you? Any recommendations?

Nasi Bryani sounds like Malaysian and Indian Fusion food.

Fusion food describes the kind of food I like, like pancakes on a sunday with real chocolate sauce. Or even a sundae with real chocolate sauce on a pancake.

Red Roast Beef and potatoes with a vegetable stir fry. Miso Soup for starters.

Thai! Er, make that Mexican! No, Chinese! I'd say Japanese! Or is it Indian? American Southwest!

Oh, let's face it. I'm omniverous!

Italian rocks...

Indian is nice if there are no after effects(like stomach aches), even if it tastes good while eating.

Indian, Greek (and other middle eastern foods), Japanese, other East Asian cuisines. I think that about covers it.

Italian, Italian, Italian... : drool:
Lebanese is good.

Err... Thai and Chinese - why do i always end up getting plain rice and boiled vegetables when i am in Europe and a plate of oily noodles when i am in India (i like it though).

Note : Bangaloreans, check out 'Little Italy' on 100 ft rd off Airport Rd.

America is a pretty big place, so there's a lot of regional variation. I think of "American" as steak & potatos, and bacon & eggs for breakfast (is breakfast "cuisine"?), perhaps because of time spend in the midwest when young

My own favorite: French cuisine. Our favorite French restaurant in Boston serves somewhat larger than optimal servings, but they're happy to let my wife and me share an entree, which brings the price down from astronomical to merely expensive.

After that, Mandarin (the only significantly spicy food I like), Cantonese, some American subtypes.

You're all a bunch of Homers I like most most styles. Top of the list however

Thai - for the aromas and spices
Italian and Greek style - for salads, bread, cheese and cold meats
Korean - because it's all around me

French gastronomical servings ??? I expect your favourite restaurant is catering to American expectations of big portions, but French cuisine has characteristically small portions ever since nouvelle cuisine hit the scene.
French cuisine.
More true in Paris than Calais where you can get great big bowls of seafood like the favourite Moules mariniļæ½re on the seafront.

At one time in Paris you could take a morning dip in your very grande tasse du the.

My favorite is Thai. Red chicken curry is my favorite. May be because Thai dishes and kerala dishes have some similarities.

I think that's exactly what they're doing. Sorry to be unclear - I consider the small servings at traditional French restaurants - such as one I've been to in Montreal - optimal; the "enlarged for Americans" servings are thus "larger than optimal".

Fortunately, while they've compromised on serving sizes, they haven't compromised on the quality of the food.

Actually I think the French eat quite a bit , though little and often in the form of several mini courses. Emile Zola's L'Assommoir has a piece on culinary reporting that is as much joy to read as it might be to eat at the roast goose
banquet. But I cannot find a good translation and my French is too bad to attempt one.
