The options are endless...Chinese, Vietnamse, Thai, Korean, Japanese, etc.

Personal Favs of mine (not necessarily stuff I make at home, but could given enough time and ingredients...)

Chinese: simple pea sprout stir fry (w/ garlic and oyster sauce) w/ rice and some sort of protein
Vietnamese: roasted pork w/ fresh noodles wrap
Thai: shrimp tom yom soup (spelling?) I've seen some rest. do it w/ noodles, but I prefer mine w/ no noodles
Korean: beef spare ribs w/ rice and all the trimmings (kim chee, spicy cucumber, big bean sprouts, etc) OR bulgolgi (sp?)
Japanese: sushi or teriyaki of some sort? (dont eat this much so maybe someone else has better ideas)

Let me know if you need recipes for any of this...
