    Talking about Mexican food in the Cinco de Mayo thread made me hungry. It also made me curious, what category of food is your favorite? Give some of your fave dishes from that category.

    I voted American mostly because there's greater variety there than in the American versions of the other cuisines listed. When you have everything from barbeque to shrimp 'n' grits to Chicago-style pizza, you can't go wrong!

    Cochinita Pibil (achiote-marinated slow-roasted pork), chilaquiles and more authentic Mbexican dishes in general.

    A close second is Indian and Thai curries.

    Mexican, easily. I could eat it almost every day.

    Competing for second place would be Irish, Italian, and Middle Eastern.

    I would definitely agree with Middle Eastern. There is a place down by the University of Pittsburgh where I would eat all the time when I was in undergrad.

    Also am a fan of Indian food, but cannot eat it all the time.

    I'm just a big fan of food in general, although mexican is my favorite. As a matter of fact, I think I could eat a good chimichanga (sp?) for breakfast.:drool: Unfortunately (or maybe by the grace of God) my favorite food doesn't always like me.:surrender:

    I'm fond of the "New Mexico" cuisine found exclusively in my corner of the world. It isn't exactly Mexican, since the particular taste is uncommon south of the border. It's really a region-specific American cuisine, heavily influenced by Mexican.

    My second choice would be Cajun, also a regional American taste.

    Have you ever had breakfast enchiladas? I need to get the recipe from a sister at church... Eggs, sausage, hash browns, spices, wrapped in tortillas and covered in cheese. With salsa and sliced avocado. WOW!

    Good call! I totally overlooked Cajun. My wife's and my favorite place to vacation is New Orleans, and it's all for the food.

    What exactly is porridge? Is that like oatmeal?

    Yes, porridge is oatmeal. There are different types of oatmeal, steel cut, rolled, or crushed oats.

    I'd love that complete recipe if you can get it. Sounds like it's full (pun intended) of all my favorite things. Thanks.

    I would have to say Asian cuisine. That includes Indian food. My favorite restaurant right now is Panda Express. I love their mushroom chicken and Bejing beef. I also love chow mein and fried rice.

    I like food. I'll eat just about anything that is put in front of me. But I particularly relish meat.

    I voted American because it seems to envelope all different types of food including mexican, chinese, indian, etc.

    Is this limited to what people get in America? My palate tells me that the Chinese food I get in Singapore trumps absolutely everything else available in the world:p

    Such wonderful food needs to be tasted right out of the wok/frying pan. You ought to come to Singapore and I'll be more than willing to treat you to some;)

    You can't go wrong with the grill. Hamburgers, sweet potatoes, corn yum. I like to experiment with my own marinades for the meat. The barbeque season is quite short here so maybe that is what makes it special.

    Favourite dish - grilled beef (with only salt,pepper and oil), grilled sweet potato and grilled giant mushrooms filled with cheese and wrapped in bacon!
