Wow.... Nobody is taking the food challenge
These are not fancy dishes... This is what will be on the menu at regular restaurants or food stands
Of course you can always request a menu in English...

10 points - Only # 9.
We were there and enjoyed that a couple of years ago.

I’ve visited every one of the first nine countries, not #10. But enjoyed BEERMAN's trip report there!

you get 5 points if you got the country where the dish is from so I bet you did better than 10.
5 for country and 5 for the dish
