    There's a great fish & chips place in the Village, called "A Salt & Battery", they've even got deep-fried Mars bars (British Mars bars of course, no peanuts).

    [color=green][b]Potato Lakas with fresh Zimmis (a chutney made with carrots, raisins & apples mixed with honey).

    only deal is that because I'm on a modified Zone Diet - Potatoes are off my list! :(

    This is going to be one rough Chanukah![/b][/color]

    I forget many of the names of dishes....I&#39;m not familiar with Kai Grob...I think Mei Grob? is a sweet, crunchy appetizer w/ shrimp? My wife likes sweet stuff...I go for the HOTHOT..

    If anyone is on L.I.....there&#39;s a ZAGAT rated place in Bayshore/Brightwaters called Siam Lotus....service is always above average(the owner is always present). Many Thai dishes are sweet as opposed to hot if you are afraid of the hot stuff, to answer another question.

    Another great thread. I like food from all over the world. I&#39;ll sort &#39;em by favorite cuisine and list favorites for each:

    0. Cajun and Creole -- the one true American cuisine that holds up worldwide, besides gigantic pancake, omelet, and homefry breakfasts anyway. :lol: all-day beans and rice, oysters rockefeller, andoille sausage, shrimp or crawfish bisque, and of course Jambalaya (Jet?).

    1. Indian -- best "East Meets West" cuisine out there. Paneer in spinach sauce, Chicken Makhiani, lamb or goat curry, malai kofta balls, slow-cooked ghee-glazed dal over basamati rice, any vegetable fried in chickpea batter, nan, the obligatory tandoori bbq meats, and that great tomato-onion chutney (good call dickkotite)

    2. Japanese -- the most elegant anal-retentive food on the planet. Second to Indian mostly because I like it spicy and I can cook Indian at home better. Sushi, miso and cucumber sticky rice, dumplings, and anything made with raw beef.

    3. Mexican -- best comfort food in the world. tamales, homemade carnitas from pork shoulder cuts, any meat in dark mole sauce, homemade tortillas, carne asada.

    4. "Middle Eastern" -- bit of an unfair catch-all, but specifically Morrocan, Turkish, Tunisian, and Egypt/Jordan/Lebanese foods. Homemade falafel, any stuffed dolmas (grape leaves), olive salads, kibbeh balls, lamb ragouts in couscous, yogurt sauces, and chickens roasted in clay pots stuffed with mint and fruit.

    5. Italian (Northern, Tuscan) -- I was raised on bad Sicilian-American food, and while I&#39;m all for the occasional ragu I much prefer the lighter Tuscan, Milanese, and Florentine stuff. Bread soup, artichoke antipasta, chestnut crepes stuffed with anything, seafood and squid ink risotto, and anything with fresh porcini or truffles in it.

    6. Thai -- used to dislike it, but since I live in a place with 30 Thai restaurants I&#39;ve come around... duck in panang curry, purple sticky rice with mung bean paste, papaya salad, vermicelli and ground meat steamed in banana leaf (mok gai), and of course the pad thai.

    7. Korean -- recent fascination. Bibimbap, spicy cabbage and pork soup, kimchi, and bbq spareribs korean style.

    8. Chinese -- ubiquitous and another thing I grew up on and god sick of. But I&#39;ve been rediscovering it with some new dishes recently. I really love salt-baked fish, any szechuan seafood dish, and pretty much any weird dim sum pastry.

    I&#39;ve been getting into more latin American food like Cuban, Brazilian, etc. lately as well, but haven&#39;t developed real strong favorites. Eastern European I can take or leave. I love a good homemade beef goulash, but there aren&#39;t many restaurants catering to the cuisines as a whole.
