    1. Italy
    2. China
    3. Mexico

    United States doesn't even crack my top 3, as they don't have anything but maybe steaks and fried chicken to add to their cause.

    What say you?

    the nicest meal i ever ate was in nepal, bizarrely. it was beef cooked in a mongolian style from a restaurant in kathmandu.

    my favourite food is indian tho, love those spicy curries.

    I think Indian food is the worst. The spices are too overpowering.

    China doesn't even have the top Asian cuisine. Korean, Thai, Japanese, and even Vietnamese are all better. Before anyone mentions anything, I'm well aware of authentic Chinese food.

    Truth.

    My personal top 3 (in no particular order):

    Thai
    Jamaican
    Peruvian

    Equatorial countries are gonna have the best food, imo. More plant/animal variety, more fertile soil.

    explain this, you have to expand on this what about thai, japanese, vietnamese cuisine is better than chinese cuisine. specifically what in those cuisines do you think is better than what you can get from chinese cuisine.

    also are we talking american chinese takeout or authentic chinese? in america most people haven't had authentic chinese. also there is a reason the chinese Americanized the food for americans, most Americans wouldn't find some of their dishes appetizing

    well the guy kuromusha mentioned authentic chinese cuisine so i think thats fair game. your right there are some dishes that americans might not find appetizing but dont get it twisted authentic chinese isnt all chicken feet and pickled vegetables, there are so many differnet dishes you can get it is unfair to pretty much anyother cuisine because china's is basically all encompassing.

    Mexican for sure

    Thai, Malaysian, Indian, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese. I love all that shit too, but the Mexicans have it on lockdown.

    There's a couple of African restaurants in my area that I love as well, I'm not sure exactly which country they're from though.

    Personally, I don't find Chinese cuisine to be as flavorful (some of the flavors are just plain weird) as the other cuisines I mentioned.I understand Chinese cuisine is very territorial so it's going to differ from region to region.

    Compared to Chinese food, Korean food has much better meat dishes. I love bulgogi, spicy pork, and pretty much any meat you can find at a KBBQ. Their marinades are second to none.I also love gimbap, kimchi, and most, if not all, of their side dishes.

    Thai cuisine has better curries, drinks, and stir-fry dishes.

    I prefer Viet soups to most Chinese soups I've had. I also love their rice dishes.

    I wouldn't say I'm an Asian food connoisseur but from the Chinese food I've tasted, I wouldn't say they're #1.

    I know what you're saying, I've had authentic chinese plenty of times in chinatown with friends and it's been hit or miss for me.

    I think this thread would be more helpful with names/pics of dishes from the country you favor.

    Like I like Spanish/Portuguese food because of paella:
