    example? I can't conjur up what kind of food that would be.
    There's a lot, but something like this
    If you could edit on the mobile site I wouldn't have three posts in a row :/

    That look just 'indian' to me, what distinguishes between that and the south?
    I'm not 100% sure, I just know that my favourite indian restaurants are billed as southern indian!

    Thai is a good call. Could definitely live on that.

    I lived in Thailand for a couple of years, I had Tom Yum soup almost every day. So tasty.

    South is the typical spicy stuff really - I've known a couple of Northern Indian guys who didn't have that much more tolerance for heat that us.

    In my personal opinion, Italy and Austria.

    For me it is British food, I love the old favourites like an English breakfast, Roast Dinner, Shepards Pie and so forth. I enjoy other food of course, but the classics are what I always fall back on.

    My books, contests, reviews and author interviews on my blog

    Yes, Britain is the only country that applies to.
    Despite that being a spectacularly downs ridden thing to say, it is my favourite.

    Ive never been to another country that has the breadth and depth of food we have.
    Us, Germany, Switzerland, France, Japan
    Ive never been to germany or switzerland and while Japans food is excellent, it is not particularly varied.

    The main failing of most countries is that they see Indian food as one step above pig swill, so you cant get a decent ruby anywhere.

    Also, this is my personal opinion, so please do fuck off.

    Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore getting no love?! I'lm desperate to go on an eating holiday to one of them.

    South Indian is excellent too, we have a grotty takeaway with chairs in Glasgow, it's amazing. I would have no problem being a veggie and eating this all the time.

    True story. I once walked past a restaurant in London which called itself an Alsatian Restaurant. it had a picture of an Alsation dog outside with the words "Eat Alsatian!" on it.

    I assumed it was a restaurant with a sense of humour serving food from the Alsace region of France, but I never did find out for sure.

    I also think that Chinese food is a tad overrated. I find it to be greasy, and quite often unhealthy. They seem to soak everything in oil.
    As others have pointed out, this is a huge simplification on your part. I guess you are talking about the Chinese food you have had in Britain? If so it will mostly have been westernized Cantonese food (which isn't very pleasant).

    It's true though that they like their oil, but that's for old farts. From the time when loads of oil was a luxury.

    I love Chinese food personally. Especially the dong bei, xinjiang and yunnan kitchens. (Also as others have pointed out, talking about Chinese food is like talking about European food. No such thing really)

    The Chinese food I've had in Europe have been OK at best.

    But if I'm allowed to include the greatest hits from all of China then yes, Chinese would be my favorite cuisine.

    Otherwise it's the Florentine.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    I know that restaurant, it was closed down by the RSPCA a few years ago.

    No love for Mexican food?
    I do love a big fat burrito.

    I think the issue is that most of what we think of as mexican food is really tex-mex. The actual mexican food I've had was different. Less spicy, more delicate

    I love Italian food, but the worst pasta I've had was in Italy.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.
