About curries stinking: I suppose they do, but in the best way possible. A bit like some cheese I bought one weekend, and was embarassed by it on the train on my way home, because it smelled like a person who could do with a wash. People kept glancing towards me, and I had to keep explaning that it is the cheese. It was delicious.

Andy; I find yet again that I agree with you 100%. If I had to choose the best meal I ever ate, I couldn't do it. I have had standout meals in the Phillipines, all over America, in Canada, and have sampled cuisine from Australia, South Korea, Japan, Hawaii, etc. (that's one good thing about being in the Navy, if you take the opportunity to get away from the bars and your shipmates (except for a few really close buddies of course), then you get to experience so many good things from so many great places. And of course, as has been said, you don't have to travel very far in the U.S. to try new and exciting cuisines from diverse places. There truly is no "best", as there are cooks everywhere that can turn local ingredients, often times ingredients that can't be found anywhere else, into amazing dishes.

Definitely hard question to answer. Lots of specialties from different parts of the world. But I personally love American, Japanese and Philippine foods.

Previously I would have said "I love Philippine food" across the board, but there's a Filipino restaurant near my house -- where Filipinos eat regularly -- that for my palate, serves inedible food. And I've tried it on more than one occasion. I've since come to the conclusion that what i DO love is good Filipino home cooking. That was what I was accustomed to. Same thing for Ethiopian food. I love the home cooking I've been served, the restaurant fare, not so much.

Let's face it no one mentions northern European in which I include Britain. The best cuisines are all those using more veg (less meat) and heavy on the spice.

I gotta go with the good old USA, anything you want you can get... Especially in New York City, there is pretty much every food you can think of... God I miss my old stomping ground...

Ooppss sorry... I mean yes, Filipino foods... specially Filipino home cooked dishes. So what exact Filipino recipe do you like? My favorites are Pork or Liver Adobo, Kare-Kare, Diniguan (pork blood stew) and many other home made dishes.

Hard question. From my own personal experiences, I would have to answer Germany. I lived there for some time and I crave everything I ate there all the time. Greece would be another top of the list country.
