What is everyone's most favorite Asian cuisine?

I ran this poll on chinese-forums.com, but could only put in 10 Asian cuisines. Good thing I can put in more diversity into these cuisines here.

My favorite is Korean. What about yours?

I love sushi and sashimi, bibimbap and haemul jeon, and any sort of fried or boiled dumplings (my favourite is mandu), but after honeymooning in Vietnam I'd have to choose Vietnamese.

I voted Sichuan cuisine though I like them all. I prefer Cantonese breakfest, Vietnamese pho for lunch, and Sichuan cooking for dinner.

If you travel through China you'll notice Sichuan resturants are everywhere, can't say the same of other cuisines. Though I must admit if you want seafood Cantonese is the way to go.

People actually plan vacations by going to Chengdu and sample the "small eats". I highly recommend it if you're ever in Chengdu. Most people think Sichuan cuisine is all about hot or "la". Sichuan food is about careful and complex seasoning. Many untrained cooks are ignorant and just drizzle everything in chilli and call it Sichuan cooking. :no:

I think Japanese cuisine is the best. I especially like Kobe steak! Too bad I have had it only once, probably for the only time...
