Does anyone know a good restaurant to eat at?

The food that gives me gas is beef. If I eat a big steak or a large helping of roast beef I burp a LOT, and later on it turns to gas.

Also if I go vegetarian for a day or two I get all gassy.

I've never heard of Italian making someone gassy, but we're all so different on the inside that it doesn't surprise me.

I just don't think people should limit themselves from eating an entire field of cuisine because they don't like a particular ingredient, or because olive oil gives you gas... of course, most all restaurants use olive oil to cook a lot of things.

I love Italian of course, and Mexican, Chinese, Japanese... there's a great German restaurant in Hagerstown I like to go to, and some awesome Indian places in Harrisburg. And you haven't lived until you have some real, Spanish tapas. A Lebanese restaurant recently opened and I can't wait to try it... I'm a big "kabob" fan.

My favorite though would have to be Thai.

man...now i dont know what to get for dinner tonight...those all sound good.

i'd have a tough time ranking my favorite Ethnic cuisines, but here it goes

Japanese - sushi :-L plus that tepanyaki grill stuff is awesome too, and that bowl of Ramen i got in Japan was one of the best meals ever.
Italian - especially if veal counts. god i love veal :-L... :-? maybe that finds it's way into my belly tonight
Mexican mmm...chips and salsa and cheesy covered goodness. i really like Mexican Sandwiches
Thai i like the sweet and spicy contrast of the Gang Gai or Pad Ped with the coconut milk and curry
Middle Eastern Chicken Schwarma with garlic sauce and hummus ;-D they also make really good lambchops ;-D
Chinese i like it, but most of the places in my area...it's just kind of garbage. i hear the East Coast (and probably West Coast) cities have way better chinese food. PF Changs however ;-D

i'm not going to rank the Germans, Hungarians, Indian and other niche cuisines

i'd probably put good old American food (steak, burgers, seafood) #1

Nice round-up Lambskin...

I once read that over 90% of all Asian-Americans live on the coasts.

Tonight is looking like a sushi night for me; but I'm right with you on the veal... a good veal marsala beats just about anything.

You guys have to try Etheopian food. It's a blast. They don't use cutlery, you eat with your hands! :-B They give you these big fluffy pancakes, you rip of pieces off the pancakes and use it to pick up meat or veggies. Ususally pretty spicy stuff, lots of potatoes and goat. It's fun and goes great with beer plus it's dirt cheap.

Tes-Mex is best. I love refried beans. I get a hankering every month or so, anything more and I would get sick of it.

btw - kimchi chigae is horrible. Don't go near it. You've been warned.

I'd love to try Ethiopian food; there's a restaurant in Frederick that I've just never made it to.

I'm not really a big fan of kimchi either, and I love Asian food.

I love Thai and SE Asian food. Chinese restaurants here are a dime a dozen and most are pretty bad. A bunch of dishes served in heavy often times syrupy sauces with no real flavor to them. But we have a couple of Thai and Vietnamese restaurants that are outstanding. Good pad thai and curries.

We have two Japanese steakhouses but I haven't tried either. I've heard good things about both though. I think we're going to one next weekend.

Mexican food. It's amazing how things have changed. I remember back in the day when Chi-Chi's came out it was like this amazing place that served "real" Mexican food. Now places like that or Carlos O'Kelly's are laughable compared to some outstanding mom & pop cafes that have popped up in the last 5 years. The influx of Mexican immigrants has brought some great food to our area. We frequent this little place that makes homemade tamales that are phenomenal.

Italian. Unfortunately for me the closest we get is Olive Garden or Biaggi's. There are a few places in Dubuque and Galena that are decent and there's a great place in Muscatine that has the best pizza.
