National Dish

  I may have seen something like this before but hey. What is your national dish i.e. food not the plate/cutlery set.

For the British its Fish "n" Chips (french fries) coming a close second is the Curry which is odd as its not British!

For the Scottish its Haggis, For Wales its either Welsh Rarebit which If i'm not mistaken is cheese on toast, or possibly the Welsh Cake a doughy round cake filled with either jam, currents or plain. Its probably not made from the blood of the local Englishmen.

And The Irish well to be honest i'm not sure, so for the sake of completion and racial stereotyping I'll just say Guiness until someone comes up with an alternative.

  Flambayed(flambeed) penis of our vanquished foes. With a side of halibut eyeballs and a nice bloddy Helmut(danzka mixed with blood from a guy named Helmut).

Bangers and mash for the Irish ? maybe . . .

Here in America I don't know if we have a national dish. Maybe cheeseburger or hot dogs for something uniquely American, but more likely our national dish would be pizza based on volume consumed. Regional faves could dominate too. Grits in the south, pot roast in the north and midwest. Tex-mex in the southwest.

  Haggis, Yummy.

I do enjoy meat and potatos with maybe some cabbage.

I enjoy lots of foods though.

  Pilav, which is pretty much, rice with carrots and meat, which sometimes also includes peas and raisins in it, depending on which part of the country you're in.

The other one is Shashlik, which is very similar to Kebabs of different kinds of meat, but with some vegetables and pieaces of fat on the stick. foreigners usually love it, but pieaces of fat make them sick. They're not used to it.

Oh I so totally like that. I think it is one of my favorites, but that must be because I don't eat it very often.

Hotchpotch must be ours I guess... or just any food mashed together.

  I dont know of what the names for the dishes are, but some of the food the pakis and the north afrikans brought was good stuff.

  I dunno what a national america dish would be...probably a Big Mac and some Supersized fries for all us fatties.

As far as a regional dish...I don't know either...here we're really big on foods of different ethnicities...There's so many Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Nepalese, Italian, Greek, etc, places here...
The town I live in may be boring, but there is good food.

  St. Louis is known for its dessert, gooey butter cake. It's gooooood.

Also, sweet potatoes and marshmallows at thanksgiving is an American thing. As is green bean casserole.

Don't be forgetting the bacon, eh.
The pemeal.
With maple syrup.

Canada doesn't have a national dish but those foods usually come to mind.

It is also said that Canadians "consume more Kraft Dinner per capita than any other nationality on earth". Hm...

Poutine is pure goodness in grossness form. J'aime!

  I will represent Ecuador as well, where the national dish would either be "ceviche". This is one of the best things I have ever tried. It is almost like a seafood salad, except not.

It is mostly shrimp prepared with tomatoes and a lot of lemon. There are a few ways of preparing it but those are the main ingredients.

Depending on where in South America you come from, you serve it with different "sides". Ecuadorians usually accompany it by popcorn, corn nuts, or plantain.

I would do [almost] anything for some right now.

Just cos I'm Canadian and you are jealous of a certain Canadian who has stolen a certain lady you would like to have as yours, does not give you an excuse to tell me [your once future-wife] to shut up.

So you just shut up now meshy.

  Some of the Slovenian national dishes are:
potica (a cake roll filled with walnuts and raisins),
prekmurska gibanica (several layers of dough alternating with layers of apple, poppy seeds, curd cheese and walnut filling)
pršut (air dried ham from the Karst),
jota (thick soup made of cabbage, potatoes, beans and dried pork),
štruklji (roll of buckwheat or wheat dough with curds or walnut filling)
žganci (side dish made of buckwheat or maize flour),
matevž (mashed potato with beans)

  I think McDonalds is our national dish, a big mac and fries. If not that then nicotene and beer.

  if you've not had green rice, then you're missing out!

it's basically rice, broccoli and velveeta (cheese) all mixed up. my mom's recipe is the best!!

that would be my national dish....besides puck, of course.

i also like sweet tatoes.

refresh my memory, what is haggis, again?

Today I can't stop thinking about summertime. I feel like I am way too excited for it. Just thinking about the sunshine and the lake and grass and running and no shoes and everything...it's too good.

It is still 4 months away [at the earliest!]

Oh my.
