Cuisine-top 10 list

I’m really into food. Lately I was thinking about the top world cuisines in order. I couldn’t include Austrian/German foods although many of my friends would; it’s just too meat-based for my liking :) Same with American food; for one thing American food is difficult to define, for another it tends to revolve around meat.
In my opinion, it would be:
1. Thai
2. Mexican
3. Italian
4. Indian
5. Japanese
6. Chinese
7. Vietnamese
8. Moroccan
9. Turkish
10. Russian
Very difficult to order, and in fact my list will probably evolve over time as I experience more food around the world. This list also exposes my dislike of Middle Eastern food. Anyone else care to make a top 10 list? I found another list here: http://www.hillmanwonders.com/top_10/top_10_travel.htm

Chinese
French
Italian
Indian
Japanese

The food can be pretty oily. Surprisingly, the top vegetable in the food here is peas. Those have never been a staple for me before. Something called paneer which is similar to cottage cheese is pretty popular.

The key to Indian food…spices! Cinnamon, cardamon, cloves, peppercorn. You buy them at the market wrapped in newspaper
P1030128 Ghee is a special kind of butter used in cooking. No handles on the pan, just use those clamper things to hold it still

That game is called Ludo and it’s like Sorry

Typical Bengali desserts: Rasgullah, a type of syrupy ball, and mishti doi (my favorite!), a sweet sort of cottage cheese

The bread poofs up like this after getting heated on a special kind of stove I think

This actually did not taste that good, it was very salty and oniony and the textures were just a little too crazy, even for me
I have not gotten sick yet here, it’s a kind of minor miracle :)
