The food thread

Well there had to be one right?

Big fan of anything Asian myself: be it Indonesian, Thai, Indian, Chinese or Japanese. Also liked the Iranian food I've had (so much aubergine there) while the Lebanese food I had was really more Mediterranean style.

Currently eating seaweed crisps as we speak



anyone ever had them?

Have a feeling there's also a bit of horseradish in it as it's a bit stronger than just seaweed.

ps anyone ever had Korean food? heard it's sour

Korean food that I have tried:

Kimchi, a pickled cabbage dish. It tastes sour and spicy.


Bibimbap, white rice topped with seasoned vegetables, a raw or fried egg and sliced beef with black pepper paste, served in hot plate bowl. You're supposed to stirred the whole ingredients before eating them.

Last but not least is Bulgogi, which is Korean beef BBQ..

Chinese I have the most history with and is one of my favourite cuisines although I don't indulge as much because some of my old favourites tended to be on the battered side. Japanese food is better for you and I've been having more of that in recent years, since discovering the profound addiction that is... SUSHI! Maki rolls, nigiri, yum. I can even take a little wasabi of late. Aside from that I know a small cosy eatery named 'Shuji Sushi' which offers aside from the obvious - a variety [four] of bento boxes. There's different compartments each with a different tasty snack, like terikayi.

I had a dish called Pad Thai which was very good, it consisted of lots of thin dark brown or black strips, that's how I'd describe it.

I haven't had seaweed crisps.

Indian food yes, my experiences are mixed, I tried a new dish only days ago but it was very hot and the taste wasn't really to my liking. On the other hand, I've tried this butter chicken dish which was very addictive, creamy, more mild.

When I was in hospital I asked for Korean cuisine for the first time. Some of the food there wasn't much chop and I fancied something different, and Melbourne is renowned for offering so many restaurants, eatouts, so on. The place my family went to was called "Grandma's Korean BBQ," although I forget what I ordered, sorry.

By the way, there's a crazy place in the city which offers sushi burgers. They're outrageous and delicious!

You can get Stash Premium Teriyaki Seaweed Snack Chips, 0.71-Ounce Pouch (Pack of 12) from Amazon.com.

Pad Thai is my favorite.

I got them from an aunt. I'll check out next time I'm in an Asian store though.

Could be wasabi in those seaweed crisps, which gives it that horseradish effect.

Indian cuisine is the best of all IMO.

I guess it depends on your taste. Indian food can often, but not always, be quite spicy. There are obviously many curries of varying flavours which are mild, most of which are made for non-Indian palates. Perhaps also try something like tandoori chicken, which is very nice if made well, and Indian kebab meats.

Indians actually don't eat a lot of meat, so such things mentioned above are not too common there. Vegetable dishes are, and there are many good ones. I really like dhal, which is like a thick lentil sauce/stew. Quite a simply but tasty dish which is also good for you. Also if you have a sweet tooth try their sweets.

Dhal sounds promising. I've been concerned about some of the Indian foods I've consumed with regard to their nutritional contents. Thanks for the shout.

I had a really nice sweet and sour dish with rice from a place called the "Toy Yeon Cafe." I'll have to ask for the name. They also offer Singapore Noodles which I'm a fan of.

I'm a sucker for Asian food. Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Iranian, Lebanese food, plus more I can't think of right now I've all had and loved at some point or another. I'll post more tomorrow as right now it's way past when I should be awake and this is making me quite hungry.

Had Korean barbecue on New Year's Eve, great food, plenty of soju too.

Went out for Thai food tonight had some lamb curry and vegetarian pad thai, and of course a couple Singhas.

Also, one of my friends lived in Beijing for six months and brought back baijiu (strong liquor distilled from sorghum and millet) to share with all of us, and dear lord, I cannot stand that taste. He said it is very popular in China though. What do other people who live/have lived in China or have tried it think about it?
