    I'd chose my own Estonian cuisine, because it's what I'm used to and it is influenced by a lot of other countries. Most typical foods are rye bread, pork, fish, potatoes and dairy products and it's all very versatile and tasty and you wont get bored. It's all also linked to seasons and what is currently available, though we do lots of pickling, marinating and smoking foods too, so we could enjoy these things all year round.

    Or, if I should choose another one, then I'd choose Italian cuisine, because I love pasta and pizza and their desserts. Tiramisu is something I make all the time.

    My immediate answer was Japanese + Chinese (I'm pretending they're the same cultural cuisine even though they're not).

    But Indian ranks a close second - in the last few years I've really become a fan. Biryani, murtabak, masala, roti... I love the strong flavors and the diverse textures. Nowadays I can even enjoy plain rice and dal (lentils), which I came to hate when I was backpacking in India on the budget of a working-class 20-year-old.

    Does American count? It's what I eat 2/3 of the time without putting much thought into what I'm going to eat.

    If it had to be cultural or ethnic cuisine, I'd probably pick Italian. It's supposed to be the most common in the U.S. after American and I do like it.

    I might pick Indian but if that meant my husband could only eat that he would not be a happy camper, so I would go with Thai. I think we could both live with that.

    Everywhere has a culture including America so yes I count American. It's really interesting the influence Italian food has had on American food!

    I love a good Thai meal, they always include a great amount of vegetables too!

    Chinese or Thai I'm not sure they are both delicious!

    Frech because I tried a few french dishes while on a trip; they were probably the most delicious dishes I have ever had.

    I had a Mac-n-Cheese dish that was bigger than my hand, really cheesy, and it was absolutely amazing.

    I probably overlooked this because you automatically think about how expensive it is. It's always been delicious, like you say. Yum.
