So what will it be then?
If you mostly answered A, you should go with an English dish. Look closer to home instead of casting your eyes far and wide. There are some great dishes you can have, like a traditional roast dinner with the works (all the trimmings) or good old fish-and-chips. All the better for you if you reside close to the sea as there are so many fresh seafood-based meals waiting for you.
If you mostly answered B, you should go Italian. Italians express their rich culture in so many different ways, including through their architecture, their music and the deep-running love for art they harbour. Their food falls nothing short of depicting this rich culture of theirs and is top-quality as well, so you could perhaps go with a spaghetti dish or a pizza.
If you mostly answered C, it should be Spain for you tonight! Food plays a major part of the Iberian nation’s rich history, offering a diversity of unique and delicious cuisines that are indeed famous to that part of the world. A cured-meat dish, Spanish ratatouille or even paella make up just some of the options you can choose from.
If you mostly answered D, you best be going Indian with your dining choices tonight. Curry is the natural inclination one would have by way of an Indian dish, but you have some variety with regards to the spiciness. Balti makes for a nice and mild spice while those who don’t mind some serious zing can go with a vindaloo. If you’re looking for something a little bit different, a side dish of spiced roast salmon will do just fine, but you should definitely remember the naan and chutney.
