Favorite International Dishes
OK, so its saturday night, and im hungry. Its my cheat meal and I was thinking of getting some chinese chicken lo-mein, when I thought to myself, maybe i should try something different.
Anyway, what is y'alls favorite International (non - "american or canadian ") foods, i.e chinese, korean, italian, Indian etc..
And what is your favorite international* dish and why?
Mine is a beef chow mein because if made right, the combo of noodles and beef is amazing
*by international i mean "americanized" international ~ for t-bone.

I think beef chow mein is more of americanized chinese food. I don't think in China that they eat stuff like General Tso's Chicken. They don't have nearly the obsesity rate of the US....

Call me boring, but the spaghetti I had in Venice was probably the best pasta + sauce meal I have ever had. I had something in France but I couldn't tell you the name in a 1000 years.

Mexican!!!Fajitas,chimichanga, burritos,steak,chiken,taco salad,enchiladas,tacos,nachos, quesedilas,tortas.I could go on forever.It's all soo good.Full of flavor and or spice,if no spice,throw on some hot sauce!Free chips and hot sauce and once you know where to go,some hot sauce is amazing.I usually have 2-5 bowls before meal.I'm in Tx though,northern states hardly have any mexican,and what they do have sucks,same with bbq.

I gotta go with some Pad Thai. Awesome dish!
Chicken Shwerma is really good too.
Jambalaya counts, cause Lousiana is like another freakin country.
I like Pantera's tex-mex idea. Him and I live about 1 hour apart. We've probably been to the same places.

too many to list! You should come to Hawaii, seriously it has to be the biggest melting pot of diverse cultures you have ever seen. International food you ask? We got it ALL! Thats why people love it here so much and miss it when you leave, besides the beautiful views and women, the selections of good food is unmatched and somethings are very unique only to hawaii.

This chicken + thyme (or tarrogon depending on the day) and polenta dish my girlfriend makes. Shes 1/2 Sicillian and she's learned how to cook alot of the Mediterranian dishes. Lamb and polenta is good as well. What ever it is she cooks I can't wait to get home from the gym to eat it.

My favorite had the same problem...Chicken Tikka Masala. To the uninformed, it is an Indian dish, actually it's not! It's British and actually referred to as England's national dish! It influenced by Indian cuisine since India used to be a colony. Another oddity about it...there's no set recipe! On British paper did a survey and found over 50 variations with the only common element being chicken!!
My experience with it...my wife is British and makes KILLER Tikka...actually one of the first things she made me...she woo'ed me through my belly!
