What is your favorite "Jewish" dish?

What is your favorite "Jewish" dish? We are having a pot luck at the office and we are supposed to bring something from our ethnicity. So many options and I don't know what to pick.

Potato pancakes, matzoh balls, knishes, blintzes and noodle kugel are a few that come to mind. Not sure if they are great potluck dishes though

Knishes were the first thing that came to mind. I think they would be great for a pot luck.

I'm not sure what you would consider Jewish food, many consider it to be more European style food. A few years ago I traveled to Israel and some of you would be surprised to know that Israel is probable the most multicultural country on earth. The only other places that compared were Singapore and London. So Jewish food could basically be categorized as food from anywhere within a 5000km radius of Israel. Encompassing Ethiopia, India, Kuwait and Russia.

That being said my favorite Jewish food, on that many Israelis seem to share with me was Yemen Beef Soup. Especially with the (somehow spelt) Swhuge, a chili, garlic and coriander sambal like concoction.
