"Rare" ethnic restaurants?

Chartrand | | Mar 19, 2007 11:41 PM

I'm from NYC, but now in Chicago. Lately, have taken up a semihobby of trying as many different nationalities of ethnic restaurants as I can find. It's fun to explore and compare/contrast.

I'm coming home for a week or two, and know there's no place better than NYC to add to my "list". Any suggestions for places a bit different than Chinese or Mexican?

The following are those I HAVE tried, or seen in Chicago, so NOT looking for in NYC (in addition to the "obvious", like Spanish, Thai, etc):

Americas: Costa Rican, Guatemalan, Ecuadorean, Peruvian, Argentinean, Brazilian

Africa: Moroccan, Ethiopian, Nigerian/Ghanaian

Europe: Hungarian, Romanian, Swedish, Cypriot, Czech/Bohemian, Portuguese, Polish

Former Soviet: Russian, Armenian, Lithuanian, Uzbek, Ukrainian

Asian/Middle Eastern: Afghan, Burmese, Filipino, Lebanese, Malaysian, Israeli, Turkish, Persian, Nepali, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, Korean

So, any recommendations of Algerian or Laotian or Martian cuisine?

Thanks in advance!
