    Vietnamese Sandwich place (Lots of tofu and lots of cilantro!)
    Thai Place (Very veggie friendly!)
    Bakeries that I DON'T work at. Those are the best.

    Exquisite :cool:

    To be more specific, ones that use fresh local stuff.
    Fore Street in Portland, Maine is great.

    Its pricey, but very good. I like good burrito joints the same way.
    Its not about the food type, it is about the quality and dedication of the staff.

    I would include Mexican, Thai, pizza, and breweries as my favorites, if I had to name by cuisine.

    lol @ KFC. Thats classic, dude.

    Although those $0.99 chicken stackers have bread that tastes like recycled paper.

    1. Asian fusion/Pacific Rim (creative sushi)
    2. French (but only fresh fish dishes)
    3. Indian (saag paneer my favorite)
    4. Independent cafe + pastry places w/wireless (except for the Small World Cafe in Princeton which has no wireless, one secretly located power outlet that is usually locked. But the coffee and oatmeal is unbelievable. It may be my favorite place in the world!!!)

    Mmm... sushi. I'm scared of some of the more exotic stuff though, and I don't like eel.

    Street food in Bangkok, or just about anything spicy in the countryside. (You may require a few years in Asia for this not to anchor you to a toilet for a day.)

    Alternatively, in many Asian cities, there are little Thai shops selling Thai ingredients to expat Thais. Many of these places have informal restaurants attached, which are probably illegal, but will give you *real* Thai food if you're nice. "Sawasdee Khap. Tom Yung Kum, Tord Mun Pla, Gaeng Mussamun Kung khap." will get you spicy soup, fish cakes, a curry, and a huge smile for ordering in Thai.

    Egg tarts (Daahn Taht) in Hong Kong / Macau. (not spicy, but a nice combination of sweet filling and crispy pastry. Eat them when they're hot!) Finish off with some herbal tea from a stall down the street. Great for a feeling of being a real local.

    I would have said the Little Sheep (Xiao Fei Yang) chain, but my wife makes a better super spicy hotpot than their salt-laden one.

    what all is in the burrito? just a mexican mix of cheese? sounds tasty, regardless. for me, burritos are beans (preferably refried pinto, but black is good too), rice, and cheese. maybe some sour cream on the side, and ideally guac, though that is rare and big $. unlimited chips and salsa = heaven

    Good food, affordable, nearby.



    Given that, then I'd prefer the kind of food they serve be Chinese.
