I don't think I've had Columbian cuisine, unless you count cocaine.  Haven't had Afghan either, but all the rest I have. 

I can generally find something I like in each one.  Italian probably wins, but only if Mario Batali cooks it.  I think I'm going to one of his restaurants for my birthday next month.

mmmm... oxtail!  I used to have this GREAT Jamaican patty place around the corner from me in Brooklyn and I'd always get the oxtail.  Delish.  Also had a tasty Senegalese place... don't see many of those.  Probably the best thing I liked about living in NYC was the great access to such a wide variety of ethnic foods.

Eldon... what's up with all the flirtation?

Does soul food count? They may sounds disgusting but I love some chitlins. If the soul food doesn't count then II will say Italian as well. I miss eating Cuban food though....Wishes I could make trips just for the food.

Philly: A nice quiet setting with a dimly lit room with candles lit while the soft music is playing in the background is definitely a choice of a relaxing dinner to be had.

Casual conversation to take the Stress away from the day.

My grandmother made awesome food.  Pickled watermelon rind and pan fried salt cured country ham.  Corn bread with pork cracklin' all served up on our family tobacco farm.  And yes, there were fancy ceramic spittoons in each room!

Yes, but my grandmother insisted on wainscoting in the living room.  And french doors in the dining room.  She was kind of high faluttin' for country folk, or so she thought.  She could never keep up with her brother who actually owned a Mercedes and *gasp* drank a martini every night before dinner.  If my grandfather wanted some hooch she made him go down to the stables with the workers.

Based on my observations of what?  If my grandmother kept up with my uncle?  Hell no... they had a fierce house in Florida on a canal, ALWAYS a Mercedes and had lived in Aruba for a while as an engineer for an oil company.  My grandparents owned a Ford and lived in the middle of nowhere.

I'm an able cook of Indian food, but verging on the spicy side. And all vegetarian.
Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

For me, it would mean moving back to NYC because it's not just the food, it's the whole thing, the restaurant, location.  Except Chinese which, however it reflects on my mother's disinterest in cooking, means 'homecooking' via the smell and warmth of it through a paper bag on a cold Sunday night.  I can cook Italian, but if I were siimply talking about eating it: Little Italy.  Cuban via the Cuban/American places in Chelsea.  Indian via Indian row on East 6th Street.  Japanese via Japanese row on East 10th Street.  French at Paris Commune in the West Village.  Win

Love food. Period.

In no particular order except the first:

Mexican - not that "TexMex stuff or the cheap knock-offs they serve in Arizona and California. Real Comida de NorteŮo Nuevo Mexico. If they don't ask you "red or green,"  if the salsa or the sausa doesn't make you sweat, and the meal doesn't come with refritos and sopapillas, it ain't a real Mexican restaurant.

Thai

Chinese (Szechuan)

Navajo (kneel down bread, mutton stew and fry bread)

Belgian (mussels served any and every way possible)

Japanese (primarily sushi)

I do research into recipes written pre-1600 as part of a medieval recreation group I participate in. Example: as part of a course, in a feast, that I'm serving to a group of 80 people next month I will be making" Mushroom Tarts". They aer in a pie crust and have chopped mushrooms, Brie cheese, and assorted spices, baked at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
