If someone's travelling to your country, what meal/snack/drink/dessert/whatever from your country do you think they absolutely MUST try?

Or, I suppose the opposite could be useful too. Is there a local dish that you think should be avoided at all costs?

Weeeeee don't really have our own food, just like terrible versions of other peoples'. 8D
Though I was raised with a nice dose of j00f00d like kugel (noodles > potatoes), gefilte fish, and a shitton of couscous and houmous and weird soups with beets.

You just reignited my longing for Spanish food! I would love to have some patatas bravas right about now. Or tortilla de patatas...



I prefer the longer, coiled churros. I'd be pretty happy with either though

ufff .. everything from Mexico is amazing!

In Tamaulipas: cabrito en sangre (goat in blood .. it sounds gross, but it is amazing) or cabrito en salsa verde (goat in green sauce ... green sauce = avocado, tomatillo, and chile serrano)
In Nuevo Leon: arrachera
In Baja California: Langosta Estilo Puerto Nuevo (lobster)
In Oaxaca: Tlayudas (my favorite food ever)
In Puebla: Mole Poblano
In Aguascalientes: Pollo de San Marcos
In Veracruz: Tamales Veracruzanos and the coffee (especially at Veracruz, Veracruz)
In Sinaloa: any seafood ... any ... all of it is supposed to be amazing (I don't eat seafood, so I cannot tell you first-hand)

There's something special in each state. Mexico is a very diverse country, even though not many may think so.

I saw a video of Daul Kim eating this particular brand of dried mangoes.
These are great substitute for candies.


Prawns in sour brouth. Omg this is to die for.


Halo-halo. (‘mix-mix’) is a popular Philippine dessert consisting mainly of finely-shaved ice, evaporated milk, and a delightful concoction of preserved sweets such as young shredded coconut, beans, boiled banana chunks, macapuno, sago, gelatin and topped with crispy popped rice and a glob of ice cream, among other yummy tidbits such as ube and leche flan. It looks damn sweet but it's a pretty healthy dessert imho.



The ever-amazing Leche Flan.


Beer yo. hehe.


LOL. It probably takes away the guilt.

PS: I dislike Durian. It stinks but most people like it, even my father.

There's lotttttts of good Palestinian/Lebanese food, like:

Labneh, which is like some cream that comes from a goat, I believe? It's slightly sour but so so so so so good


Mlookhieh, rice topped with some spinach-like thing and chicken...doesn't sound good, but it's delicious


And as for desserts, we tend to end meals with dates,


Creme caramel,


And of course, Arabic coffee:

People from Quebec love poutine and it comes from here. I like it, but not that much.
We're eating "ragout" with meat and vegetables..and something that is really good: tourtiere. It's a kind of pie with beef and sometimes pork. I can't really explain it but it's really good.

Poutine:

It's like one of the largest food and beverage companies here. They've been around since 1890, and their beer bottle design is considered iconic.

From Denmark :D


Frikadeller (danish meat balls). The best thing ever :)


Red sausage. Hot dog with the red sausage is the "national" fast food dish ;)


Danish pastry is the best!


Smørebrød (open sandwiches). It's made with rugbrød (dark bread) which is also very Danish. I don't really like these, but my dad does!

For christmas we usually treat ourselves with:

Ris ala mande (rice pudding). We usually put an almond in there and whoever gets it wins a prize.


Æbleskiver (pancake like thingys). Usually served with gløgg (warm wine).
