Default 10 new cuisines you need to try - 09-11-2017, 12:11 PM

We're always on the lookout for exotic new flavours and emerging international cuisines. Take your tastebuds on a tour with our guide on what to eat, where.

Britain is a great place for trying food from around the world with people becoming more adventurous in their tastes over the years and wanting to recreate their holiday memories. Good Food is always keen to sample new, international flavours and creative dishes that exploit the best produce of different countries and regions. Check out our list of the 10 most up-and-coming world cuisines.
Want to learn more about UK eating habits in 2017? Take a look at the Good Food nation survey.

South American

Many people are venturing further than the usual holiday destinations and exploring South America. Here, prepare for fresh hot sauces, spices and mouthwatering meat dishes. Looking for a delicate starter? Try Peruvian
ceviche, which is cured raw fish in wafer-thin slices. If you want something hot and hearty in a pastry parcel, Argentinian empanadas filled with meat, cheese or veggies make a filling snack or main meal.

South Indian

Goan, Sri Lankan and Keralan food is having its moment in the spotlight with hoppers making their way into street-food stalls and fine dining restaurants alike. South India is emerging as a hotspot for travellers with culture and world heritage on their minds and the traditional dishes on offer are a real feast for the senses. For a sharing meal, try a plate of coconut-laced hoppers (thin pancakes with crisp, golden edges) that come with a whole host of fillings.

Goan mussels


Everyone loves a taco, or even a small taquito with a cool glass of something. Pile on the tomatillo salsa, curtido and fresh guacamole. With versatile, customisable dishes, Mexican food lends itself to big sharing dinners and casual help-yourself feasts. We could eat Mexican for every meal with huevos rancheros for breakfast and pulled pork tacos for supper.

Try these Mexican recipes...
Chicken fajitas
Belly pork & pineapple burritos
Fish tacos with baja sauce

East Asian

Laotian, Taiwanese and Vietnamese are just a few examples of cuisines that are establishing themselves in major cities around the world. We love the range of punchy spices, earthy umami flavours and fresh, zingy marinades and sauces. Our East Asian-inspired sesame-crusted fish dish has the characteristic heat from ginger and chilli oil, savoury miso paste and fresh vegetables. We love a fragrant laksa soup and some light rice paper spring rolls for a starter, too.

Try these East Asian recipes...
Vietnamese chicken salad
Thai green chicken curry
Vietnamese egg coffee


Polish and other Slavic dishes are typically warming, hearty and well worth the effort to make. Bigos stew, decadent blueberry mazurka bars and Krakow-style cheesecake are all on our must-try list. Traditional and modern flavours combine in a plate of pierogi
dumplings that can be filled with trendy sauerkraut and mushrooms, sweet white cheese curds, or American-style buffalo chicken.
Try these Polish recipes...
Polish apple cake
Polish sausage soup


Moroccan cuisine is known for comforting one-pots made in traditional tagines with big, bold flavours. It also makes the most of vegetables and classic slow-cooking techniques. Adding dried fruit and warming spices is also characteristic of North African cooking and adds a subtle sweetness to dishes.

Try these Moroccan recipes...
Moroccan chickpea soup
Moroccan harira
Moroccan lamb

Greek and Cypriot

Mediterranean food has been lauded in the press as the key to a long and healthy life, so go ahead and feast upon fresh chickpea salads, a slice of spanakopita and every now and then, some classic Greek lamb? We're firm believers that a dollop of tzatziki, houmous or a herby yogurt dressing can improve any dish and we're big fans of crumbly feta and golden-brown grilled halloumi.

Try these Greek and Cypriot recipes...
Stuffed vine leaves
Chicken gyros
Lighter spanakopita


Fermented foods and especially kimchi are at peak popularity due to the health benefits associated with friendly gut bacteria. There's a lot more to Korean food than pickling and probiotics, however. Try a bowlful of oriental comfort food where your choice of meat and rice are served with fresh ginger, spicy gochujang and a runny egg on top. You can do the same with fishcakes, too.

Korean clam broth
Korean rice pot
Korean BBQ wings

Middle Eastern

As diners become more discerning, restaurants are diversifying and offering more regional plates from around the Middle East. Persian, Syrian and Iranian dishes are more commonplace, as well as seasonings like za'atar, sumac and harissa. Serve up these barbecued meatball kebabs with a helping of mint, coriander and ras el hanout, a spice mix that adds a warming, slightly sweet flavour.

Try these Middle Eastern recipes...
Roasted roots fattoush
Pistachio lamb koftas


With Lisbon being a destination of choice for city breaks, Portuguese classics are topping menus all over the UK. Smoked sausage, custard tarts and plenty of fish and flavoured salts are the order of the day. Fans of seafood and even tinned fish are in for a gourmet treat, as well as diners looking for deli-style plates cured ham and strong cheeses.

Try these Portuguese recipes...
Portuguese duck rice
Portuguese-style custard tarts

I have tried all these cuisines (not Polish one) and honestly speaking Peruvian, Lebanese, Moroccan, Portuguese and Korean are amazing. Few years ago I went to this Korean restaurant in Emirates with some friends of mine. We had this Korean BBQ and it was amazing.

My cousins tell me that many of the Southeast Asian restaurants in Gulf and Pakistan are really good but here in the States, I've only found one that was OK, the rest always has this weird smell. Most Sushi places here on the other hand are pretty good.
