As an addendum to my post below about the emergence of a Mexican cycling team at the top level of Europe, and because it's Friday, here are my top five best cuisines in the world.
- Italian (I'm biased)
- Chinese -- kind of cheating, because it encompasses about ten different subsets. If you insist on a singular region, let's say Sichuan.
- Spanish. I'd prefer to say Japanese here, but it's not quite diverse enough to pass the marooned-on-an-island test.
We'll start a second thread around 300 comments or so.
