Sushi, sashimi, tom yum, kimchi, tempura, any Cantonese food, falafel (yum!), souvlaki, pita, borscht...
Reality is an illusion caused by lack of alcohol.

I cooked enough for three people and ate them one plate at a time.
St-Louis BBQ ( and probably all over the USA south ).. oh man that was good shit right there.
Sushi is pretty smart but I don't know how much the stuff we eat has to do with actual sushi. Didn't know they had so much spicy mayo and grilled chicken to deep fry back in japan.
Love me some butter chicken too.
But yeah, most "authentic" foreign food is not good because they come from poorer countries who have a harder time accessing actual good things like butter, refined sugars and chicken and they have to rely on beef penis and dried squid to sustain themselves ( or in some more extreme cases, vegetables). The "authentic" foods we tend to like from other places are generally not very ancient and mostly consist of fat / sugar / carbs / meat / spices... For instance, sushi, which was mentioned many times here... I bet most people like the more recent sushi creations to the actual authentic traditional raw / marinated fish forms.
For instance, the california roll, the most popular sushi in america, is a novelty for Japanese people ( http://voices.yahoo.com/the-california-roll-most-popular-sus hi-roll-in-437539.html ). In Japan, the raw fish nigiri sushi are vastly more common than all the different kinds of rolls we find here in America.
The same goes for "Chinese food" which is not really Chinese food so much as American food made by Chinese people. If you've never been to a good Chinatown, you don't know the horrors that Chinese people ACTUALLY eat. Holy shit. Dried pizza-flavoured anchovies anyone? YUM!
99.9% of the food you've never tried won't beat a good burger or a scoop of ice cream, basically. So don't feel too bad guys!
And remember the rule of thumb: If a new food doesn't contain sugar, meat or fat, it's probably shitty.
I have such a weakness to Indian food that I literally can't control myself when it's in front of me. I don't care if I'm hungry or full, I'll eat Indian food if you put it in front of me. The first time my family and I went out to an Indian food buffet, I wouldn't stop eating even though I was full and I almost threw up.
The Dutch kitchen happens to be very bland and not very diverse, so I eat a lot of food from foreign countries and it's very difficult to really pick a favourite. I love pizzas and pastas, but I also like rice and noodle dishes, shawarma and lahmacun, curries, whatever. It depends on what I'm in the mood for really, but I think I enjoy the Italian kitchen the most.
Fresh sushi from a nice Japanese steakhouse is the best meal ever.
For I am and forever shall be... a master ruseman.
Sushi of any and all kinds, obviously.

YES. I lived in Prague for four months and naturally ate tons of delicious goulash. Czech dumplings are also great.

Ooooh yeah. Did you go to Pappy's? It's basically the best BBQ I've ever had, and I'm lucky enough to live within a ten minute drive from the place.
I've had a strong fascination with sushi for the past year. I never get bored of eating it and I always want to try different and more exotic roles every time I have it.

Boiled cabbage with salt is one of my favorite vegetables along with boiled turnips with salt and butter.

I still haven't gotten to try any Indian food. I've been wanting to try it. There's an Indian restaurant nearby that's supposed to be good.

Trust me man, you will not be disappointed. The stuff is heavenly, there's spices and ingredients in it that are not only very healthy for you but are there to give it so much flavor and it tastes amazing.
