Favorite Cuisine

Ok, you can only choose 3 cuisines to eat for your entire trip. What would they be?

1. Mexican ~ melty cheese, spicy food and margaritas all in one, yes please
2. Italian ~ again melty cheese and WINE plus there is gelato and tiramisu
3. Japanese ~ sushi and hibachi any day please! don't forget the sake

I found my self with pretty much ALL Mexican and Japanese ADR's and had to switch it up a bit. What is your top 3?

If I can only eat foods from three cuisines...

African. That gives me all of the awesome choices at AKL's restaurants plus Tusker House. Can't get more specific than African in this case since those restaurants feature dishes from all over (and sometimes completely outside of) Africa. And since Morocco is also in Africa, that gives me an option at Epcot as well.

Can I also generalize and say Asian? Probably not, huh? Then I'll go with Japanese for the several Japanese restaurants around WDW, plus the Japanese menu items at Yak and Yeti in AK.

At this point I've got to pick a third option that will allow me to eat at the parks I haven't mentioned yet. So I'm going to have to go with good old fashioned American food. That means anything from counter service burgers and chicken sandwiches to Liberty Tree Tavern to several other restaurants and buffets. And Hawaii is part of the USA, so 'Ohana makes the cut, too.

So to summarize: African, Japanese, and American.

Mexican, French, Seafood. In general, I would choose Japanese over French because I LOVE hibachi, but our local hibachi place is as good if not better than Teppan Edo and WAY cheaper.

I was going to go with "American" but wasn't quite sure how it would fit. Other than all the steak and potatoes I would eat LOL

laugh

The mexican and sushi I can get any time here but it's my favorite and I wouldn't be able to give it up for an entire trip.

I'm not really adventurous when it comes to food and spices. So I picked what I know and like the best.

Mexican, Mexican and Mexican.. (cheese, avocado, hot sauce, peppers, margaritas.. yummmm)

But really for WDW I'd have to go with:
1) Mexican (obviously)
2) French (because I love the France booth at F&W)
and for 3) I would say seafood, but I'm not sure if that counts since seafood exists in so many cuisines in different forms, so I'd have to go with African since we're staying at AKL

I tend to not want to get the things that I can easily find at where I live when I'm there. I mean, if I have a choice, I wouldn't want to eat the same thing that I can get barely 1/4 mile from my house. So my choices will be

1. African (I love you, crazycatperson!). Boma and Jiko are two of my most favorite places to eat.
2. Moroccan. Even though this is technically in northern Africa, I consider Moroccan cuisine more "Mediterranean" than African. So a meal at Marrakesh is almost a must (don't care much for Tangerine cafe, though).
3. Disney. I term these things as "Disney cuisine", because they are often unique to Disney, or at least, I haven't found anything similar elsewhere: Smoked turkey legs, smoked chicken at Flametree BBQ, a number of entrees at The Mara at DAK, and the same with entree at Sanaa where they tried to mix and combine flavors from different cuisines, some with limited success.

American, American and American. I usually end up at MK and HS the most. I hardly ever go to Epcot and DAK.

Good question. Let's see for me:

American (Come on, I can't turn down burgers, BBQ, steak and seafood to name a few. It's pretty hard to find some quality American food that isn't overpriced, frozen and pre-made from a casual dining chain restaurant.)

African (It's something I definitely can't get in my neck of the woods. So Boma, Sanaa, Jiko and Tangierine Cafe, it's on!)

English/Irish (Both countries serve roughly the same cuisine but for me, it's so hard to find a good place that serves fish and chips and I love fish and chips around my area. And besides fish and chips, there's always shepherd's pie, stews, bangers and mash, foods I would most certainly enjoy eating.)

1. American- specifically steakhouses and BBQ
2. German- I seem to be the only one who picked this. What's not to love about sausages and beer?!
3. French- or as I tell my husband...small portions, big prices, lots of sauces, but it's oh so delicious.

Mediterranean - I will miss Kouzzina
Japanese - Teppan Edo is better than most of the hibachi restaurants at home. Although we do have killer sushi restaurants
American - esp. The barbecue at Flame Tree

I seriously considered German just for the Biergarten. But I needed something that would allow me to eat at MK and DHS, so American it was.

Not a big one on spicey as it pays back in a less than fun way; same for DH.
So,

Steaks/home style food (50's, Narcoossee, Tavern, etc...)
AfricanAsian (love Bomas and Yak and Yeti)

DH wanted to know if beer and desserts were categories???? waiting
