Default Which Continent Has The Best Food

I am gonna borrow from the thread about animals and replace it with food. Now I do not profess to be a know it all .......so please folks, add to the list to make your case, here is my $0.02

(ps. Do not include Antarctica please)


#1 Asia - No Contest
Too many good cuisines, Thai, Chinese, Indian/Pakistani, Vietnamese, Japanese, Malaysian, Korean.....the list goes on and on and on

#2 South/Central America

#3 African

#4 North America (Mexico pulling its weight and then some)

#5 Europe

#6 Australia (gotta be right?)

Let the bragging rights begin, feel free to use photos of the dishes to make your cases.

I'm from Australia and I don't even know what constitutes as "Australian food"? Vegemite? Shrimp on the barbie (even though we call them prawns, not shrimps..)?

I'm going with Asian. Thai is possibly my favorite non-dessert food, I also love Indian.. though I think Chinese is hugely overrated. Europe is next because of Italian.

Upon further review I think I will re-rate as such

I'm not a huge fan of Chinese food. Pretty much for the fact that all of their meat has bones it. Its awful.

Penguin makes for a superb dish when combined with giant squid (known to roam in the freezing waters of the Southern Ocean). Once upon a magical time in the long long ago, Eskimos inhabited the dark continent (and no, the dark continent is not Africa), also known as Antarctica.

So before everyone jumps the gun and says Asia or Europe (which are obvious second and third choices, respectively) - let us not forget penguin is not only rich in protein, but taste as well.

To be fair, Antarctica deserves its place at the dinner table (pun-intended).

Europe easily (Italy, Greece, France, Spain, etc). North American #2.

Asian food is generally gross.

Overall, Asia takes the cake. Too diverse when it comes to the ingredients and tastes they can bring to he table for others to even contest, in my opinion. Plus they can make the simplest stuff taste AMAZING. European comes 2nd for me,then all the others can duke it out.
