    Mmmm, a big bowl of pho and a glass of ca phe sua da sounds excellent now.

    I'm a huge fan of spicy food, so much of my list will be hot. Ethnically I am quite mixed (Scottish/Russian/Egyptian) but as far as what I ate growing up, I will need to leave Mediterranean/Middle-eastern food out of my list.

    1. Would be a tie between Vietnamese and Thai food. A good alternative to pho is bun bo hue. Unlike pho's beef-based broth, bun bo hue is a lemongrass and chile paste broth, and it comes chock full of pig's feet and congealed blood.

    2. Is a toss up between either Indian food and Trinidad food. I love the spices used in Indian cooking, and Trinidad cuisine is a melting pot of Caribbean, Indian, African, and some Middle-eastern flavors.

    3. BBQ of any type. Be it Korean, Mongolian, or American. Ever since I got a Big Green Egg this past year, I've been going hog-wild. Have had great success with 11 pound brisket flats, and Boston butts.

    Pho is great. The utter simplicity of it, the way you can taste each and every ingredient. It's a beautiful dish...

    This is an easy one... Pizza.

    I'm not Italian.

    Wow, just about everything I have read in this thread so far.

    If you are not form Texas, smoked beef brisket is fantastic.

    Cajun food

    Friends from Columbia introduced us to green rice made with pork, eggs and cheese. The rice is green from cooking in water used to cook spinach.

    Mmm, all these posts made me hungry...
    For my part, I guess the favorite food is the shaorma (or shawarma). It's a Lebanese (I believe) food somehow similar to the burrito:
