102 Cuisines: Taking Inventory (SEA)

As some may have read, an out-of-work playwright in Santa Monica recently took it upon himself to eat in consecutive days one meal per day representing over 100 international cuisines. Most all of this was done in the greater Los Angeles area. For details: http://manbitesworld.com/

Looking at this made me ponder whether a similar feat would be even possible in the Puget Sound. While I lack this ambition (maybe), I decided to take stock of what's locally available by pasting in the Biting Man's list and seeing what is represented in the 206 (and 425, 253).

For each cuisine, I entered one or two examples I had heard of. I include only those I've tried and/or liked most where discrimination is possible. I placed a solitary ? where I had no candidates. I placed a (?) following places where I had doubts whether the listed place was actually serving items true to the cuisine in question (as opposed to pan-regional cuisines).

Personally, I would really like to see some Ghanian, true Lebanese, Burmese, Egyptian and Croatian/Slovak food.

Any ideas about what's lurking out there?
