Re: Your country's traditional foods

I live in the United States---and the culture is very diverse with different ethnic backgrounds, and so is the food! There can be a Chinese restaurant, a Mexican food restaurant, and an American food restaurant all on the same block (I have seen it plenty of times!)

But I would see that overall--the typical meal, or a very American meal in general would be a dinner containing BBQ chicken, ribs, or other form of meat, corn on the cob or other BBQ vegetables, potato salad or pasta salad, baked beans, hotdogs and hamburgers, and macroni and cheese and french fries seem like the most "American" dishes to me--even though they are served in other countries as well.

Other popular American foods are seafood (like shrimp or crab), steak, eggs, mashed potatoes, grilled cheese, soups, salads, hashbrowns, cheesesteaks, and other foods that are probably popular in other countries as well, such as fruits and veggies.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

I'm Indian, and practically every region of the country has a different cuisine, so it' tough to say, but I suppose a foreigner on a quest for 'Indian' food would begin with asking for curry, or rice and daal (lentils). And 'gajar ka halwa' (I can only explain it as a sort of mash of carrots cooked with sugar and cooking butter and nuts, with assorted other things for flavouring- cardamom etc) if they think of dessert, even though large chunks of the nation don't eat it.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

We here in Hungary have the gulyás, pörkölt=special stew, hurka=disgusting things mixed but delicious, and anything spicy and fattening with a lot of potato is traditional here.

Re: Your country's traditional foods

I'd have to say that here in Israel it's falafel. I guess humus and pita are pretty traditional too....
And I haven't found a person who doesn't like shnitzel yet...

Re: Your country's traditional foods

I live in the southern US too, and the best example of "traditional" food that I can give you would be Thanksgiving: roasted turkey, stuffing, ham, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, mashed potatoes, some kind of casserole, cornbread, and sweet potato pie and bread pudding for dessert.

My dad's side of the family came from Jamaica. Traditional food from there would be
curry chicken with rice and peas (it's just red beans) ... or beef patties! Yum

I live in Birmingham (England) and our significant Caribbean population gives such flavour to the city in many ways!

Re: Your country's traditional foods

Haggis is a traditional Scottish food. I think it tastes and looks disgusting, but there you are.
Also deep-fried Mars Bars, though I can't comment on that cause I've never tried one!

"Arroz con Gandules & Lechon" - "Rice & "Gandules"(a type of beans) and Pork"

"Pasteles" - That's something with some green bananas, potatoes, pumpkin and other things (I don’t know the names in English lol so I’m not gonna try…) Anyways that’s stuffed with meat.. (Great flavor) “Pasteles are Christmas tradition.

And some “Frituras” that are fried stuff…
