** Japanese media has a peculiar obsession with curry (wich is absolutely unlike the Indian one, and is closer to the British version, originating from the galleys of the British-built Japanese battleships in the early [=20th=] century) and ramen, to the point that all other noodles in the Japanese cuisine (even natively Japanese ones, like the buckwheat ''soba'' and the thick wheat ''udon'') ''do not exist''.

** As do the homecooked dishes like the humbly nikujaga (a beef-and-potato stew with a sweet soy sauce) and tonjiru (a pork and potato miso soup), which feed more people than any other elaborate preparations. They might be ''shown'', but are never elaborated upon, unless that's a point, like with nabemono (hotpot) dishes, that, as communal affairs, are usually used as a shorthand for the PowerOfFriendship.

** If you're ordering a hamburger or fried fish, fries (as in "French fried potatoes") are known as chips; if you're ordering a deli-style sandwich, "crisps" are what the thin-sliced style potato chips (such as Lay's or Pringles, etc.) are known as over in the U.K.

** [[TheOtherRainforest Pacific Northwest]] - Asian fusion, massive amounts of fish, and gallons of [[Series/TwinPeaks damn good]] coffee. (This applies to the [[StargateCity Canadian portion]] of the region as well.) Washington State is famous for its apples (more than half the apples consumed in the United States grow in Washington) and in recent years has developed a positive reputation for its wines.

* German: [[GermanPeculiarities Beer]], sausages, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment beer]], sauerkraut, [[RuleOfThree beer]], black bread, and [[RunningGag beer]]. Sauerkraut is actually more popular in Russia and Poland, but is strongly associated with Germany (to the point that "kraut" became an ethnic slur), where again it is mostly served only in parts of the south. Everything will be extremely heavy and fattening, and so will the people eating it. Sausages and black whole-grain bread--especially rye--are also stereotypical, with "sausage-eater" being a secondary slur for Germans;[[note]]In fact, Poles and Russians, who eat even more sauerkraut than the Germans, never used it in their victual mud-slinging, and prefer to call the Germans "sausage-eaters".[[/note]] Germans don't care, and [[UsefulNotes/GermanPeculiarities proudly inform you that Germany has over 1500 kinds of sausage and 300 kinds of bread, so you could have a different combination daily for ten years and not repeat once]]. Expect massive steins being served by buxom maidens in dirndls to men in lederhosen. Also [[OverlyLongGag beer]] and Schnapps. Pretzels (when those aren't associated with Pennsylvania...but then, Pennsylvania got them from the Germans, so it all comes together in the end). [[BrickJoke Beer]]!

** A more general one for all British countries (plus Ireland) is "Breakfast": the greasy kind with bacon, eggs, potatoes, sausages, and tomatoes all [[BaconAddiction cooked in bacon fat]], plus baked beans and local bread (possibly toasted in bacon fat) and a slice of fried black pudding (probably [[RunningGag cooked in bacon fat]]). Each region has its own variation (for instance, the Welsh include cockles and laver bread--both of which are rather likely to be [[OverlyLongGag fried in bacon fat]]--while the Scots occasionally use haggis for the sausage, and in both Northern Ireland and the Republic the bread is usually soda bread), but to quote Creator/WSomersetMaugham:

*** Turkish: Most culinary experts would say the Turkish kitchen is even better than the Lebanese--including a good number of Lebanese experts, who often turn to Turkey for inspiration. At least one expert has stated that there are three truly grand culinary traditions in the world: the Chinese, the French, and the Turkish. Stereotypically consists of 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'', which means "with olive oil"). The vegetables are often stuffed. Also, Turkish coffee. Expect pita bread as well.
