The most widely available dish/cuisine in the world?

Post by desertstorm » Wed Aug 15, 2018 9:39 pm

Inspired by the cultural appropriation thread, which leads me to wonder if Chinese food or McDonald's or something else being the most widely available dish in the world.

I can’t remember Indian eating that shit. Also not popular in Poland.

I think spaghetti with red sauce, or pizza, is the most butchered dish available everywhere. “Italian” restaurants are the most copied.

Also fried potatoes/French fries ar everywhere.

They’re popular in India and definitely used in Poland. See link in my last post.

I had a pizza about 20 years ago in what I was told was Mumbai's best Italian joint, imaginatively titled "Little Italy.

It was pretty good, in an Indian way.
Very spicy tomato base.

This is their menu nowadays:

Instant noodles?
A week from tomorrow they celebrate their sixtieth anniversary. Ten minutes from the BBC World Service on how Momofuku Ando came up with them. More than a hundred billion packets are sold every year.
