    I really don't know if there is already a thread for this, but I can't find 1 for it in the Zoo Cafe, and I searched on several keywords, but I found nothing, so: what is your favorite food.
    There are of course many delicious dishes, but I still think my favorite is croquettes, preferably potato croquettes.
    What is your favorite food, and maybe also why:)?

    Though I think our namesakes like hoofed mammals, isn’t that right @Tiger?

    I thought I would do a video of my weekly food intake for reference in the future, please enjoy on ZooChat. My kitchen is a bit small as you can see.

    My favourite dishes are probably pizza, wiener schnitzel and a Hungarian meal called pörkölt.

    Sadly nowhere near a platypus
    My favorite is sushi especially ones with salmon. Pizza is a close number two.

    My absolute favorite is probably our home-made spaghetti sauce recipe.

    Some other favourites are lasagnas, potato and vegetable mash with baked fish, ratatouille vegetables, salmon, either baked or smoked and Iglo's Kombino's, which is a fish filet encrusted and breaded with a vegetable sauce.

    My favorite snack food is a simple piece of dark chocolate.

    I’m personally not a big fan of dark chocolate tbh, I like milk and white chocolate a lot though.

    I'm partial to a pretty wide range of food - too wide to really go into here :p but I've certainly developed a strong liking for Central European cuisine in my continental travels, quite possibly due in part to the fact that hearty stews, dumplings, preserved meats and cheeses are *just* the kind of comforting, filling food that keep you ploughing through a long week or more of travelling and zoo visiting! I've also always had a particular liking for North African and Middle Eastern cuisine, despite never having visited those parts of the world - things like tagines, couscous, falafel, flatbreads and so forth.

    To give you a general picture of how varied my general eating habits are, this afternoon I have had cooked Debrecener sausages with various Polish, Austrian and Bavarian cheeses, last night I ate rump steak with Spanish tortilla and garden peas, and yesterday afternoon I had gazpacho soup with Polish soft cheese and toasted bread.

    I don't see why :p I may be one of the few people to openly admit to enjoying haggis, but I only eat it once or twice a year maximum!

    I definitely eat black pudding more often, though.

    As far as drinks go I will assume you are fond of tea.

    #2 - Mexican food (tacos are yummy!)
    #3 - 'Meat and potatoes' meals (such as Shepherd's Pie)

    On #2 I wholeheartedly agree, but on the others I am unsure as I come from an Indian family, my mom makes a lot of Indian foods, so meat and potatoes and seafood aren’t often on the menu. I only eat salmon and tilapia actually.

    Which and how many Hungarian dishes have you ever tried? If there are a few 'missing' things from this cuisine, there is another reason to visit Budapest;)
