    What is the most exotic cuisine you've ever tried and did you like it?

    I love trying different cuisines from all over the world. I have tried English, French, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Tibetan, Indian, Mexican, Moroccan, Persian, American, Jamaican, Greek, Turkish, Arabic etc.  My most exotic experience was eating at an Ethiopian Restaurant ( in Ottawa!) and enjoying a communal pancake and spicy dishes. What is yours?

    While it is not exotic but then maybe to some it is...I love sushi...I could eat it day and night.

      I love sushi- I often have a sushi lunch! It is tasty, healthy and not too filling!

    I have a friend that's from Trinidad and for Christmas eve one year, he had my friends and I over for an authentic meal just like his grandmother would have made. I immediately feel in love with the cuisine. Good stuff!

      My step-father is East Indian from Trinidad, Port of Spain to be exact.  I was raised on curry, peas and rice and Roti, I never think of food that I make all the time as exotic.
      When I make Jerk Chicken my neighbors want to know how to do it.

      I grew up on collard greens and cornbread, so most stuff is exotic to me! I do love jerk chicken!

    Thai green papaya salad. It was very good. I enjoyed it.

    I'm a big traveler and I love trying local cuisine; however, being a vegetarian, I'm always limited in what I am able to eat. Nonetheless, when my husband and I backpacked through Europe several years ago, I developed the habit of asking the waiters pick my meal (assuming it' vegetarian friendly). It exposes me to a wide variety of foods that I wouldn't have tried otherwise and it shows me what the locals consider their best dishes.

      This limited menu issue for vegetarians is very much a western flaw... In the east almost half the menu if not more are vegetarian dishes. As I grew up vegetarian in south India it's a haven for a vegetarian pilgrimage! There are so many choices !

    I am adventurous with food and enjoyed trying various exotic cuisines. Recently, I tried Burmese cuisine and it included green chicken curry and chicken coconut soup. Really uniquely delicious!

      Sounds yummy. I find. Lot of parallels in east Asian cooking in ingredients and palate...
