15I also have more than one favorite. I couldn't really nail it down.
The chicken with moles that I've had have been okay but I prefer a little dish I devised myself. Cheese enchiladas made with Monterey Jack on the inside, coated in mole sauce and covered with cheddar cheese. It sounds a bit bizarre but it's sweet and savory and almost like having desert and dinner in one meal.

There's an authentic Mexican tortilla dish called "Enmoladas", usually filled with shreds of chicken and coated in mole sauce. It's one of my favorite breakfast foods when well made. Photo
These are not well made.

17Wow Anonimo! The first picture looks pretty good. The second picture looks like someone had serious bathroom issues on the plate. I've had it before but it never look like either - it was always a rolled enchilada. I use a green mole for my enchiladas. I've never seen them made with cheese anywhere, although I did get a restaurant to do it for me once. They just don't know what they're missing.

19Sashac at #21: The first enmoladas photo was taken at El Gorgeo de Las Aves en Las Mañanas de Abril in Ziracuaretiro, Michoacán.
The second was taken at the once great Truco 7, in Guanajuato, GTO.

22I'd definitely agree with Peruvian ceviche - especially if followed by Pisco Sour. Lentil soup in Egypt was surprisingly delicious. Belgian chocolate (cliche but true). Homemade Apple Strudel in Austria ( for dinner. Followed by dessert). Kokoda in Fiji (best I tasted was in New Calidonia but can't remember what they called it.)

24#27.Nothing strange about putting durian on top of steamed/boiled rice out here in SE Asia
.In fact lots of rural folks do that at home during the "durian season" usually around July-September or occassionally around December.
Sometimes with a bit of palm sugar,coconut cream and a pinch of salt.
It is considered a "rich", sweet,filling meal and is packed with carbo and considered an aphrodisiac(?)
Fermented durian(tompoyak) is used in making types of curry with river cat fish.

25South Indian food like sambar, idlis, appam and of course masala dosa. It's very tasty and healthy. The problem is that you can't find South Indian food in Sweden!
