After my previous post about trying Moroccan food, I realized that it had been very long since I had tried any new cuisine. At some point of time, I was very eager to try out new cuisines, but of late I have not experimented much with food. Being away from India makes me crave only for Indian dishes. I do want to try some new cuisines and hence this post.
I just browsed through yelp to see what cuisines I have never tried before and found such a huge list. I am not sure I can try all these cuisines as most of them have very limited vegetarian options. I definitely would have tried all of them had I been eating non-vegetarian food. But still I hope to eat something in these restaurants some day.
I found out from yelp that my city has restaurants from all these countries. I was shocked to see the list. Idea behind this post is to make a note of all the possible cuisines available.
- Japanese – Vegetarian sushi
I have not tried the above cuisines for the obvious reasons – very limited vegetarian dishes available.
I realized that I have never tried anything from this continent so far. So it gets added to the list. Looking at the menus, it looks like even they have very less options for vegetarians and their food resembles mexican food mostly.
Same goes for Caribbean and Puerto Rican. They are famous for sea food and have very limited options.
No idea what kind of dishes make up Cajun or Creole, but will try them some day. It’s supposed to be some kind of an African/southern food.
I have heard this term before but never knew what it was. Searching in Wikipedia helped – Link
“Tex-Mex” (portmanteau of Texan and Mexican) is a term describing a regional American cuisine that blends food products available in the United States and the culinary creations of Mexican-Americans influenced by Mexican cuisine. The cuisine has spread from border states such as Texas and those in the Southwestern United States to the rest of the country as well as Canada. Tex-Mex is most popular in the state of Texas. Tex-Mex is very different from the Southwest cuisine found in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah. The southwestern state of Nevada and West Coast state of California tend to lie in the middle as far the preferred style of Mexican-American food.
I have no idea about these cuisines.
- Irish pubs
- German bakery
- Tapas bars – Spanish
I think it will resemble Chinese food (noodles etc) in many ways.
Updated: Tried this. It is a blend of Indian and Chinese food. Loved the noodles!
These must be very similar to Mediterranean food.
I have already tried Korean (mostly sea weed food and did not like it), French (it was good), Turkish/Greek (which is essentially Mediterranean), Malaysian (liked it) and Singapore (did not like), Himalayan and Nepalese food (Indian but with some different spices. Loved it), other than the ones I have mentioned in my earlier food related posts.
So have you tasted any of these cuisines? Do you know if these have good vegetarian options?
