Foods around the World

I asked friends from several countries around the world what food they think represents their country (or at least is a recognized symbol). Here are their answers!

America - Steak, Hamburgers and Hot Dogs

Italy - Wine and Pasta (I have to add Gelato)

Spain - Cured Meats (Chorizo, Jamon)

Mexico - Mole

Australia - Beef Pie

South Korea - Kimchi, Bulgogi (grilled marinated beer sirloin) and Galbi (beef rib)

China - Xiao long Bao (steamed pork bun)

Iran - Chelo Kabob or Ghormeh Sabzi

England - Fish & Chips, Bangers & Mash, Pork Pies and Cream Tea

Phillipines - Adobo (a type of cooking involving of marinated meat or vegetables) and Lumpia (egg rolls)

Taiwan - Braised pork over rice, Beef noodle soup and Potstickers

Switzerland - Swiss cheese (ie. Gruyère, Tête de Moine, Berner Hobelkäse, etc.), Mountain meat (ie. Bündnerfleisch (dried beef), Rohschinken (the Swiss version of prosciutto), Speck or Mostbröckli) and of course Swiss chocolate!

Do you agree, or have other suggestions based on where you are from?
