I just wanted to say, IMO, it is the best Asian cuisine, and one of the best in the world. The flavors are generally more subtle and complex than Chinese. I have been enjoying Thai food for a very long time, and never get tired of it. Last night, my husband and I had a date at our fave candlelit Thai restaurant. We had Chicken Massaman Curry, and lemon grass soup with shrimp. Yum!

(As an aside, I doscovered this: The name Massaman is thought to be derived from the word "Musulman", the older form of the word "Muslim").

So, what are your favorite cusines?

Mine would be:
1. Italian
2. Thai
3. Everything else

Thai and Japanese are my favorites. Thai food seems to get that perfect spicy/sweet/sour combo just right. I still haven't found a receipt for Thai tuna salad, although Starbucks makes an excellent Thai tuna wrap (of all places).

I love Lebanese and Indian food almost as much, too.

It reminds me a lot of Thai food, but there is a hint of curry and coriander in a lot of the recipes. Cross between Thai and Indian, maybe?

I agree, Abbey - Thai is the best Asian cuisine.

Burmese sounds good. I'll keep an eye out for a place that serves it.

My husband just informed me that he has eaten a few times at a Burmese restuarant in Philly called Rangoon. According to him, good food, but Thai is better. I still want to try it.
