Default Favorite "genre" of food

Omg! My good friend from work brought me to his house to have dinner with his family and it was some of the best food that I ever had! He and his family are Iraqi refugees and boy do they eat tasty food! Best part for me is that it is mostly Gluten free!
What's your favorite type of ethnic food? Mine is Arabic, Filipino, and Mexican !

I absolutely loooove Mexican food. I could seriously eat it every single day if I was able too. After that it would definitely be Chinese! Then Italian.

Italian will always be first. Then various kinds of Asian cuisine. Then Mexican.
They have to be 'real' tho, not fast food or Americanized versions. I pretty much love all 'real' kinds of food.

ETA This doesn't mean I never eat at fast food or chain restaurants or even the occasional "Chinese" buffet. I do! : )

Is this just about nationality/ethnicity? If so, I love Italian, Greek, Turkish, Korean, African American SE soul, Caribbean (esp Jamaican) and Peruvian/S American, in no particular order.

But if genre means other things besides ethnicity, I like: bowls of pasta (pho, pad thai, Piada), grilled steak, green salads w/ meat & unusual dressings, panini type sandwiches, Japanese Benihana type cooking and rustic pizzas.

Yum!

I'm currently loving the spicier (not necessarily hotter, but that's ok too) Asian foods - Thai, Indian, etc. Italian and Mexican are always good options. I love middle eastern food too. I would like to try everything, but I'm not a big meat eater and I don't eat weird body parts (lol). I like my meat in small doses with lots of veggies and grains.

I miss living in NYC for the food options. We live in the NJ suburbs now and so many restaurants wind up being just mediocre. It's been hard to enjoy restaurants since my kids are SO picky. I'll have 2 in college in the fall and my pickiest one still at home for another 5 years. When we go out, we try to go see live music and don't waste our dates on just restaurant meals.

I totally love Indian food. Of course, I totally love all food

But my favorite food is coffee! Hot coffee, iced coffee, coffee ice cream, coffee yogurt - is that a genre?

My favorite ice cream is coffee chocolate chip. I have to be careful to not eat it after dinner, though!

Jeepcurls, I knew I liked you for another reason. As a first generation American with both parents from Italy, definitely give me Italian. However (and this sounds strange) I do not like going to Italian restaurants because I will always be a tough critic based on what I grew up eating. I love Mexican food too but I could live off steak and pasta. You rock, honey

My favorite cuisines are Vietnamese, Brazilian, Cajun/Creole. I don't like noodles so I never eat pad Thai or noodle dishes. I like spicy and colorful foods that are a mix of flavors. I also like Middle Eastern food, though neither it nor Brazilian food are spicy as in hot, but have a mix of flavor combinations.

: ) I rarely go out for Italian for the same reason. I'm not fussy about food, but I just prefer to make my own Italian food. There is a small Italian place around the corner and I do like to go there for meatballs and sauce and bread. And they make a fantastic calzone (something never made in our family). But I go mostly for the busy Italian family type atmosphere. Reminds me of Sundays at the grandparents' house. Sometimes eating isn't just about the food.
Sorry, getting all sentimental about my food. : )

I love American Chinese food. I call it that because it's the kind you get in the typical Chinese restaurant.

Also Southern Soul food. It's getting into the holiday season too. Can you say "Chicken Dressing."

Italian would be No. 1 for me since I am first-generation American with both parents from Italy. After that, I'm down with an American steak and potatoes meal. I'm also down with Mexican.
