There's Chinese, Indian and possibly Japanese take-out, as well as pizza, but any other cuisines you think would do well as takeaway?
Coming from New Zealand poultry other than chicken are not that common at all. Ducks are considered game birds traditionally in New Zealand: any ducks on the table are usually results of hunting during duck shooting seasons from around May to August. The only exceptions would be the Asian background Kiwis (like me) where eating ducks is just as common as chicken. Goose and quails are unheard of, let alone pigeons.
How about your country’s traditional food or what’s actually popular (say, Chinese restaurants)? Do you get to eat ducks, goose, quails, pigeons? In your traditional cuisine or at ethnic restaurants?
I've been doing low fod for about a month and I've quickly learned that east asian food (especially viet and Japanese) is some of the easiest food to cook myself. The foundational carb is rice or rice noodles (easy and safe) and many of the staple vegetables are safe in smaller quantities. Donburi bowls (rice with meat or fish, picked veggies, and often egg) have become my lunch lifesaver and I made a low-fodmap pho broth to freeze so I can make a bowl of pho anytime. It's a lot easier to eat foods that don't require 20 modifications and I've also had a good time learning some new cooking techniques! Highly recommend if you're in a low-fodmap cooking rut.
In your opinion, what other style of cuisine would pair up nicely with Indian cuisine for fusion food?
Which country has the most UNDERRATED cuisine? Which country has the most OVERRATED cuisine?
Edit: According to everyone, French is overrated. I agree!
Differences in ingredients, techniques, customs etc
Edit: Thanks for the awesome replies! You guys have been very kind and informative, definitely piqued my interest in Indian cuisine of all kinds! Cheers!
It's What's for Dinner
Recently my SO remarked that it might be time for me to stop dancing pas de trois with refritos and salsa. The upper half of me was sorry and a little pissed to hear her say that. But of course, she was right. The secret to a happy life is to find a woman who is smarter’n you, and doesn’t want to kill you. Yet.
Even so, I reacted with righteous indignation. “Bullshit! I have et from the estuary and survived, woman! I am Achilles of the alimentary canal! Nothing can harm me!” She just smiled. Time and my small intestine were on her side, and she knows bullshit when she hears it. Rats.
Things are changing. Phooey. Wasn’t always this way. I have Et from the Estuary, and lived to tell the tale. In fact, I’ll tell it right now:
In 1968, southeast of Hué in Vietnam, were estuaries of the South China Sea. It was a mix of marshes and sea inlets, fishing and farming villages, reeds and bamboo breaks, all on top of a soaking-wet primordial goo that Mother Nature was banking just in case we irradiated the planet for 250K years and she wanted to start over with something that made slurping and sucking noises whenever it moved.
The goo hadn’t attained motion yet, but it had the slurping/sucking thing down pat. It kept trying to eat my boots. The goo was everywhere, under the rice paddies, under the bamboo, under the salt water inlets, under the fresh water outlets. There were a lot of slimy things living there.
I was living there too in 1968, along with about 400 South Vietnamese soldiers (ARVNs) and an American advisor (MACV) team. I was attached to them so they could use American Artillery - I was an Army artillery Forward Observer, a 2LT and barely twenty years old.
We were cleaning out the last of the local VC - most of them had died in the Battle of Huế earlier that year. Much of the muck had a mat of dried vegetation on it, so it was pretty easy duty if you watched your step. The Command Post (CP) of our battalion was hardly moving at all - the infantry companies were scouring the villages and tunnels.
When we did move, it was easy to tell when our Battalion Commander, the Thiêu tá (Major), had decided to set up for the night. We’d hear grenades exploding in the estuary.
Let me explain: Being a cook in the ARVNs wasn’t a matter of training. Most of our binh sĩ’s (lower ranking soldiers) had been drafted (more like press-ganged) from their villages. Unless you had some other skil... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am not a regular on this subreddit, so in case this topic has been already brought up recently and discussed, I apologise in an advance!
I live in Europe and few years back, I had an opportunity to travel through at least a parts of South India and experience first hand the diversity of the food in that region, which stood out in stark contrast to the Punjabi and Bangladeshi type of cuisine I had been exposed to in Europe till then.
I am curious to hear from you why do you think that places that would serve the type of meals such as dosas, idlis, vadas in all of their regional varieties are so difficult to find in Europe. I know of few places in London and Berlin, but that is pretty much it. Yet, the food is predominantly vegetarian and in many cases vegan (hence, aligned with the current trends in gastronomy), it is not particularly heavy – ideal as a streetfood/food truck choice during lunch hours/breakfasts prior to going to office etc.
Do you think South Indian food has a potential to break through or am I missing out something? Take care & looking forward to hear your takes on this.
In the UK, every foodcourt will have a kebab shop, Indian shop and a Thai shop.
What cuisines are always found in American foodcourts?
Is there any food that is "common" in Missouri that you cant find/have trouble finding in different areas of the United States? Is there a type of food that Missouri does better than anywhere else?
Title says it all, thank you!

Hi Toronto foodies!
A few years ago I was fortunate enough to take a backpacking trip across Southeast Asia. I went to Thailand, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam. I can safely say one of the best parts of this entire trip was the immersion into street foods that you just can’t (easily) find in the GTA.
There is one spot called Pai in Toronto (named after Pai, Thailand - one of the best places ever) that has some food like Khao Soi that is amazingly authentic, delicious, and brings me back...
I’m on a mission to find more places like this in the GTA that have unique, authentic and/or street foods from SEA and other places.
Please share with me some of your super authentic finds, or even specific dishes from a local restaurant that have that unique, street food vibe... I have yet to find any Malaysian, or Indonesian spots to try!
I have tried the usual big ones like Thai, Chinese, Korean, Mexican, Indian etc etc.
And have had some lesser known and more exotic ones around here like Ethiopian, Russian, Peruvian, Filipino etc etc.
But what are some random cuisines you have found around here that don’t fit the usual popular nations (or even Various US States food) that you have stumbled upon that you were shocked you would find. Whether it be a regional cuisine of a bigger nation ( this restaurant is Thai but specializes in northern cuisine, this is a American restaurant but specializes in New England cuisine etc etc ) or just some random country you never thought would have a restaurant here ( oh look it’s a Albanian restaurant, oh look this place serves food from Papua New Guinea etc etc.)
