*** Turkish: Döner kebab and lots of stuff with phyllo dough. Plenty of yogurt, too, as well as stranger dairy items. Also, Turkish coffee. Expect pita bread as well.

*** Turkish: Döner kebab and lots of stuff with phyllo dough. Plenty of yogurt, too, as well as stranger dairy items. Lots of dishes featuring stewed or roasted vegetables, which may be made with meat or without it; in the latter case, the dish will feature lots of olive oil (actually true--these dishes are called ''zeytinyağli''). The vegetables are often stuffed. Also, Turkish coffee. Expect pita bread as well.

** Midwest: Dairy products and hamburgers. Minnesotan/Norwegian lutefisk. Hotdish/casserole in the upper Great Lakes area. Dessert bars, such as lemon, peanut butter and chocolate chip (which for the uninitiated is essentially a kind of giant soft cookie that fills up an entire rectangular baking tray and is then sliced into serving-sized rectangular "bars" rather like a brownie). Super-flat St. Louis-style pizza is some sort of national joke, even though most major pizza chains now carry similar thin-crust pizza.

** DeepSouth: Grits, black-eyed peas, and the occasional Appalachian moonshine. Meat is generally fresh from the hog, particularly ham or bacon. Fried food popular, especially chicken.

** DeepSouth: Grits, corn bread, biscuits & gravy, black-eyed peas, and the occasional Appalachian moonshine. Meat is generally fresh from the hog, particularly ham or bacon. Fried food popular, especially chicken. Lots of stuff doused in ketchup, which probably doesn't help the obesity problem. Sweet tea. Coca-Cola is so ubiquitous that [[{{BrandNameTakeover}} 'coke' can be applied to Pepsi without batting an eye]], although Dr Pepper is also popular (the stereotype about RC Cola, on the other hand, seems totally without merit). Bourbon or mint julips for the FatSweatySouthernerInaWhiteSuit. Sweet potatoes. Georgia peaches, pecans, and peanuts.

*** A classic one is kale, making its current status as fancy, hipster, health food bemusing to Dutch. The 'health' part is also questionable as in the Dutch manner it's served with nice amounts of gravy, rashers of bacon and smoked sausage.

*** ** Have you ever eaten English cookery? Oh, you have. Have you ever TASTED English cookery? I thought not! not! ** British people, however, eat lots of curry to the point where curry is in effect the national dish. Many are about as not-bland as anybody could wish for and the proprietors of Indian restaurants have a good way of dealing with the bravado of obnoxious drunks without resorting to gross and unhygienic methods simply by upping the chilli content.

*** Have you ever eaten English cookery? Oh, you have. Have you ever TASTED English cookery? I thought not! Glasgow, which isn't the Scottish capital but is the largest city by a big margin and Glaswegians know what really matters, is getting a reputation for innovative restaurants which, unlike their London counterparts, are affordable to mere mortals. One of best known of these restaurants is called the Ubiquitous Chip. All the same, a typical Glasgow meal is likely to comprise a haggis supper (a battered and deep-fried haggis with chips) washed down with a can of Irn Bru.

** In the culinary challenge ''Come Dine with Me'', in which five carefully selected random strangers living in a chosen British town are brought together to plan and serve dinner parties for each other, various American expats in Englad have featured and while some were polite about it, an American resident in Bristol (home of the ''edible'' faggot) frankly said the biggest ordeal was going to be eating disgusting British food on four successive nights.

* Spanish: Is [[{{Spexico}} the same as Mexican]]. If cursory research has been done, ''paella'', ''chorizo'' or ''gazpacho'' might be mentioned. For some reason ''tapas'' are thought of as classy food for the intellectual hipster.
