There's always one, 'ain't there LOL .. thanks for that, Jedimaster.

23. Tequilla Sunrise - USA

Susie, 15 looks disgusting but I'd like to know what it is to make sure I don't order it in a restaurant by mistake!

Thanks for posting Steve. If I'm right then 15 is laverbread, Wales.

It's a kind of seaweed and not bad when eaten with bacon. I did buy some years ago from Swansea Market when we were on hols down there.

PS I'm not clear as to whether each country only has one mention in this Quiz in which case your tequila sunrise USA would not be allowed as we've already had burgers. It does certainly look like that however.

PPS I now know what 22 is as found the very same picture on Google images. Hope that's not cheating!

Laverbread probably tastes better than it looks. There are a couple of dishes from France already so I think countries can crop up more than once, although my answer could still be wrong!
PS I won't tell anyone you've been looking things up on Google!!

Just looked up Kate's post 38 in which she gives the answers and yes there are two things from France on there but I would quibble and say moules frites is Belgian... was going to suggest a French dish for no 5 but not sure now!
Anyway,... 22 is moussaka from Greece. And I'm sure I'm not the only one to look for a little help in these matters.

What else is there to do on a Saturday afternoon?
