It depends a bit on the mood I'm in. I don't eat meat, so Indian is nice because there are usually a lot more vegetarian options. While I do like Chinese and Italian I quite often end up with pork or bacon in "vegetarian" dishes, which gets annoying. Greek and Turkish food can be lovely too.
I agree. One's mood can alter which type of cuisine you prefer. When I am at home I like more basic things customary to Britain, like corn beef hash, cottage pie, etc. I also like Italian ready meal pastas. When I am out in a restaurant, I usually like to go for Thai or Italian. Overall then, I guess I would say Italian.
Like Jennifer I'm vegetarian. Since most of the vegie restaurants in Perth are Asian, when I eat out I usually eat Indian or Chinese cuisine, which I love. At home, I cook a variety of different styles. Although for speed and convenience I often do simple Western foods like salads, soups and baked vegies, I also love cooking vegetarian versions of Italian meals such as pasta, pizza, lasagne and cannelloni and Asian satays, stir-fries and sweet and sours. Since time is always an issue I usually make things that are quick and simple to prepare and clean, but when I have more time on my hands I'll try to experiment with other styles.
I love Pasta. But my favourite dish of all is Sri Lankan Butter Chicken. I try to make it at home but the restaurants know how to make it better. I have spend so much time trying to find the best and I always order butter chicken at every Indian/Sri Lankan restaurant I go to. The best I have found is in Sydney's Newtown. When I go there I get my dinner and a take-away meal that I have the next day. I can't get enough.
I like to try various cuisine which is different from something I'd normally cook at home. That way I get to explore an array of flavors, ingredients and dining experience. Japanese, Italian, and Mexican are some of my favorites when eating out.
We tend to go to a mixed or non categorised restaurant so that all are catered for. Things like steak and chips, a pasta, pizza, chicken parmigiana are a must on the menu. I do, however, love to indulge in some Thai or Mexican. :)
I love all. I love Italian, Asian, Indian. I don't care for much Mexican or African. Certainly do not have any interest in American. I love to eat out in an expensive restaurant like Flower Drum in Melbourne for Asian, quite a few Indian and Italian everywhere in Melbourne.
But if I want to treat myself to something really special, something that would be considered very expensive in the world, I'll eat 3 grilled lamb loin chops with vegetables of some sort, or a scotch fillet steak with garlic sauce or fresh prawns with whatever, or oysters with nothing. So may beautiful cuisines to enjoy from all over the world- but nothing as good as a week night in Australia.
Oh! fran, I'd three LL chops, with two hash browns, grilled, for Dinner tonight!
Love my lamb, but it's SO expensive now. Did enjoy chump end leg of lamb, or lamb rack, or French lamb cutlets, crumbed, but just can't afford them.
My chops cost $10 from Woolies, on special! They were enjoyable.
Yes Donjo, remember when lamb was so cheap. I really object to paying what we have to for lamb, but I can't let the price keep me from it. Love them there little crisp tails on the LL chops and I love the luxury of chump chops and cutlets. Cutlets, o my goodness I wouldn't dare say how may I could eat on my own - whatever way they are presented.
Weren't we lucky to be brought up on meat and 3 veg every day.
I used to prefer Indian food, in particular beef vindaloo but as I suffer with dry mouth syndrome it makes my mouth, gums tongue and cheeks bleed along with anything containing any hot flavourings so Chinese is what I eat most when out, or Italian. I do miss those strong flavoured foods though, in fact a nice hot satay would go down well right now (if only I could eat it).
