Eating the World Cup in DFW

txram | Jun 10, 2010 08:13 PM

I'll admit it. I'm a soccer fan. And on the eve of the World Cup, I have full-on World Cup fever and the only cure is some good food.

I thought I'd try something. Over the course of the next month (the length of the WC) I'd try to eat one meal at a restaurant representing each of the 32 countries. Some are going to be easy to find...some are probably going to be impossible to find in DFW. In that case, I figured I'd try my hand at making one of the "national dishes" of the country.

So...I'm looking for suggestions for my quest. Preferably not too expensive, but if I have to spend a little money, I will...Here's the list of the countries participating...Thanks in advance!

Algeria - ???

Argentina - La Carretera Agentina in OC (something better?)

Australia - there 's gotta be something better than Outback!

Brazil - Fogo de Chao (Something better? Cheaper?)

Cameroon - ???

Chile - ???

Denmark - ???

England - Something better than The Londoner?

France - Should be easy. Open to suggestions.

Germany - Bavarian Grill?

Ghana - ???

Greece - Should be easy. Open to suggestions.

Honduras - I pass a place (Baledas Express - Spring Valley and Coit) every day going to work. Says Honduran cuisine on the sign...

Italy - Should be easy.

Ivory Coast - ???

Japan - Yao Fuzi?

Mexico - Taqueria El Fuego!

Netherlands - ???

New Zealand - ???

Nigeria - ???

North Korea - Easy?

Paraguay - ???

Portugal - ???

Serbia - ???

Slovakia - ???

Slovenia - ???

South Africa - ???

South Korea - There's got to be a decent Korean place around here that serves food from both the North and South. Forgive the ignorance, but I'm assuming there is difference in the cuisine?

Spain - One of the tapas places?

Switzerland - ???

United States - What is an iconic American food? Hamburger? BBQ?

Uruguay - ???
