Favorite Asian Dishes

I'm looking for your favorite 3 dishes for each of these cuisines:


Anything in those cuisines you wouldn't want to eat? Anything deserve special mention? The question goes out to non-natives mainly, but I'd be interested to see how these lists compares with native or Asian-Am responders.

  1. Click to Upload a photo (10 MB limit)
  1. Don't eat much Thai or Filipino.....


    any kind of homemade clear soup

    steamed or pan fried whole fish with ginger and scallion

    roast suckling pig

    1. For Chinese:

      Cantonese steamed rock cod with ginger and green onions
      Beijing duck
      Stir fried scallops

      1. Thai-Miang Pla Tu
        Chinese- Fish fragrant aubergine with pork
        Filipino- Palabok

        1. Thai- Prik King (red curry with green beans and protein)
          Chinese-won ton soup
          Filipino- don't know the name but a noodle dish with cellophane noodles and ground pork, I believe.

          1. Just 3 each? :-)

            Gua Tiew (dry or wet, the best version of which I had on Kho Phi Phi)
            Tom Yam

            pretty much any Sichuan dish (hot pot, mapo tofu, dry-fried green beans, chicken with hot peppers, etc. etc... the list is truly endless)
            Peking duck
            Cantonese roast pork

            I've only had lumpias which I loved. Not familiar with any other dishes....
