Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, etc are Mediterranean. This is why you see a lot similarity between Greek, Turkish and Lebanese food.

I remember during the Iraq War, a Middle East expert was explaining that to understand Iraqi culture, you have to understand Mediterranean honor cultures like in Sicily. This is why before we went to a counterinsurgency posture our tactics were counter-productive. Iragis have a similar sense of honor where you have a vendetta to restore your families honor, so we were making enemies since any mistake we made was then magnified by the victim's family turned against us.

Easily Europe. Most versatility, biggest innovator, lots of tradition. It's also underrated in so far that the regional traditional meals are unknown to most but usually extremely delicious.

Took a family vacation to Africa. Mombasa, Kenya to be exact. African food is the best food I've ever ate. Especially the meat. Everything I ate was very delicious.

eh, not a fan of Ethiopian food

everything is spicy goop that you put on that sponge bread ("injera" I think?)

It's okay I guess, but if I had to eat that every day I would get sick of it real quick...

1. Asia: Sushi, Korean BBQ, pho, fried rice, Thai, curry, etc.
2. Mideast: Shawarma, falafel, hummus, kabobs, etc.
3. North American: Burgers, fried chicken, burritos/tacos, soul food
4. European: Worst in my opinion except for Italian. When I travelled Europe it was all sausages in Germany/Switzerland and ham and cheese in France. England doesn't even have a cuisine. Italy had fun and interesting food though.

There's traditional southern barbecue and soul food, as well as distinct regional food styles in areas like the Southwest, the Northeast, and California. Also Mexico has its own wide variety of food styles and traditions.

I'm gonna sit here and pretend that the plural version of n*gga excludes the possibility of me addressing you and him at once.

Probably Asia, but if I had to pick one country, I would have to say American. You just can't beat an American diner breakfast or southern comfort food or Thanksgiving. Those three, along with CEREAL(one of my favorite foods of all time) can go up against anything else in the world.
