Top Cuisines of The World

  • Oct 13, 2009
1
Chinese Fake take out!
It's a feast! The trophy of best cuisines rest with the Chinese for its variety, presentation and taste & scents. Be adventurous!
2
Sushi
Oishii desu ne! I love Sashimi, Sushi (in Japan) & Teppanyaki. Japanese took seafood to new heights by eating them raw! Absolutely fresh!
3
Thai Cuisine
Sweet, sour, hot, spicy, you name it, they have it. Not only is Thai food delicious, it is colorful and entertaining. I love taking guests and friends to Thai restaurants where a feast doesn't end just with the main meal but with a sumptuous Thai dessert buffet! Spectacular!
4
Indonesian Cuisine
You've to love Indonesian cuisine for its fried fish, barbecued prawns (as big as a baby lobster) and all those coconut milk. Nasi Padang is a feast where you'll have plenty of choices as to what to eat first and Kolak is the dessert you'd like to end it with. I never get tired of Indonesian food since I practically grew up eating them. Next time you're in town, give me a buzz & we shall all have a feast!
See the full review, "Enak!".
5
Vietnamese Cuisine
Spring Roll, Summer Roll, Pho & Curry Crab. They are all fabulous!
6
French
Of all the European cuisines, the French has got the style and the flair. I love fine dining and French Cuisine is associated with fine dining. The chefs are more creative and experimented more than other cuisines, I believe. New varieties of appetizers, main courses, desserts are being served in restaurants and hotels. French cuisine is fun & stylish and I like that! :-)
7
Belgian Mussels
Coming close to the French are the Belgian. I love the use of seafood, especially the Belgian Mussels in Belgian Cuisine. Wide selection of wines is another pluses. Belgian Cuisine is quite homely and has a cosy feel to it. That's probably one the major difference between the French & Belgian Cuisine. While we go for French during special occasions, Belgian Cuisine is finest for everyday dining. I love it!
8
Shrimp Pasta
I'm not into pasta or pizza, that's why Italian Cuisine doesn't rank as high as the French & Belgian. However, at times one can also find great selection in Italian Cuisine especially with regard to fine dining.
9
Korean Food
I love the side dishes of the Korean Cuisine. Having it the Korean way means one is fed with a variety of pickles and vegetables even before what you ordered are being served on the table. It's all for free too! And I love variety. So, that's the cheapest way of getting variety, Korean Style! ;-) Generally though, I like Korean BBQ more than the Ginseng chicken soups which is typical of Korean dishes. It's fun gathering with friends around the table having BBQ. Lots to do and eat!
10
Portuguese Cuisine
I don't even recall specifically what I liked about Portuguese Cuisine but I had the finest company when I was eating them. Hehe... that makes the experience extraordinary. In fact, my most memorable when it comes to the food itself about Portuguese Cuisine is those of Portuguese restaurants outside Portugal, in Macau, Hong Kong & Shanghai. These 3 cities have the best Portuguese restaurants in the world. If you need the name, email me & I'll direct you to them!
11
Argentine Cuisine
The best thing about Argentinian Cuisine is their BBQ and what do they BBQ? Innards! I've a liking for those and this seals the deal for me :-)
12
Chilean Cuisine
I was surprised at how fresh and lovely the seafoods are in this country. I guess it's no surprising since the country has a long stretch of sea next to it! But boy, it's so darn cheap to eat seafood here too! Oysters, prawns, etc... Delish! Awesome! Can't wait to get back there again!
13
Ostrich Steak
Ostrich meat, anyone? It's great! I love it! The South African provides great dining experience too. I like the feel of its restaurants. Had some excellent times here!
14
Polish Cuisine
Soup is what the Polish does best!
15
Mexican Tacos
Tacos are the greatest in this country and the salsa is beyond this world. Heavenly!
16
Irish Food
Soups are great and the Guinness on the tap is just the best in the world!
17
burger
I love Prime Rib so here it stays.
18
Russian Soup
Again, soups. Somewhat similar to Polish cuisine.
19
Spanish Cuisine
I found the Spanish Cuisine a little too salty for my taste.
20
Turkish Cuisine
Kebab! Turkish Cuisine consists of mostly lamb and in Turkey, the smell can be quite distinctive. It takes time to adjust and a lot of people simply couldn't take it for an extended period of time.
See the full review, "Turkish Delights".
21
Curries
Indian Cuisine is actually very interesting and a lot of people love it. For me though, I don't fancy the taste of its curry although I like curry a lot (like Vietnamese, Indonesian & even Japanese curry!). I found Indian curry a bit repulsive. The taste is just too strong. Otherwise, Indian Cuisine is actually not bad!
22
German Food
I'm not fond of sausages and German Cuisine is highly geared towards that.

What did you think of this list?

Oh yeeehhhh! Asian cuisine rules! I would like to add that Burmese and Filipino cuisine should be here. nice list!
November 03, 2009
:-) Well, I'm Asian & was brought up tasting all these cuisines, so the tendency is towards that. I haven't had much of Burmese food since I was in Yangon only for a few days. Same of the Philippines. Cambodian food is great though but I don't think you can get much of it outside Cambodia!

Nice!  Of course all the Asian cuisines are at the top!  I added some drool-worthy pictures for your list, by the way ;D

No problem, and I know the feeling. There's gotta be more hours in a day!

That's part of the problem. Javascript on this site is too slow and it takes me 3 attempts to upload a data point. If I don't know what frustration means, I do now :-)
