Favourite Foreign Foods by Godfather on 4 January 2004 12:11am
 

Which foods that you've tried when travelling are ones that have become a favourite?. I have to admit that Indian food is the best in the world (imo) and my favourite. Not the rubbbish served in British restaraunts or in takeaways, but the genuine stuff made in local Dhabas in India. Indian Chai (masala tea) is one of my favourite local drinks also. Absurdly sweet,hot, and a street stall there right when you need it at 5am after getting of a train. :)

Thai food is a close second. :)

I'm soo looking forward to eating paella, I've heard great things about it. One thing I'm still a bit iffy on is a popular tapas dish, bulls testicles. :/

Well, the Cambodian amok curry lives forever in my mind, along with the Moroccan tagine. Berber Whiskey (mint tea) in Morocco is so wonderful, I could drink it all day!

Tex-Mex. The real thing though, at Nifa's on Canal St. in Houston. I know it's not foreign to me, but it might be for you. This, served along with a bucket of Corona Beer on one of these deathlessly hot Saturday afternoons common this time of year.

Best and worst........ one of the most varied and interesting diets was on a turkish gulet last year where all the meals were cooked by the same cook on board. We were expecting fairly average food though received really nice fullfilling and healthy meals 3 times a day.

My second best/favourite food was the real Thai food we ate in Thailand, though also the worst as I also had a major stomach upset while in Northern Thailand in the jungle. I think it was something to do with the 2 day old pork the guide had wrapped up in his rucksack in 90 degrees temperature, or not washing his hands properly after wiping his b.. with his hand as you do out in the jungle.

Did you try the extra hot Papaya Salads, Philson?

we had some fairly spicey food with both the above trips so very likely. I'm a bit of a foodie, in the way as long as its tasty in the mouth i'll eat it so don't always necessarilly know what i'm eating.

..returning to the testicles... they are often referred to (in the Western US) as mountain oysters.. and tend to be deep-fried. Beware.
