Top 7 Most Popular Ethnic Cuisines in the US

As people grow old, it is quite natural that the love to stick to their native food. The system works better when you consume dishes that you are accustomed to. But when it comes to measuring the food cravings of a population, statisticians probably pick the population that falls within the ripe age of probably 18 to 40. That is, in fact, the age that craves for food. In case if you belong to a particular region it is quite natural that you prefer a different cuisine or at least something that is not a part of your native. Sticking to the US people, we are here going to make the list of top 10 cuisines that the US people crave for.

Chinese Cuisine:

Come on you are not supposed to be shocked. What, were you expecting the American cuisine to top the list? That is probably not happening. It is the Chinese cuisine that most Americans crave for. Chinese on the other hand is a global cuisine, and the US nationals aren’t an exception to it


To see the Mexican cuisine on the list is quite convincing. At least you have one cuisine, in the first few places, that is partly American. Mexican dishes are always exciting. It, in fact, is one of the dishes that is preferred globally just like the 74% of the Americans.


This is probably because of envy, as Italian dishes take the first place in the global platform. There is a recent study that states more than 65% to 70% of the US Nationals prefer the Italian cuisine. But even then I will not say that the Italian cuisine has gone too much off the ladder. Only with the difference of 3 to 4% Italian dishes still, stand to be the best.

Japanese Cuisine:

When it comes to the Americans liking the Japanese, they are quite narrow, and the same happens in food as well. When I say Japanese, you are not allowed to imagine Japanese cuisine as a whole. It is only the Sushi that more than 40% of the Americans prefer, even on a regular basis.

Greek Cuisine:

About 32% of the Americans like Greek cuisine as well. That is quite interesting as close to half of the population fall under this category. One good reason as to why Americans love Greek cuisine is that they have a quite similar taste and the choice of ingredients also falls in line.

French Cuisine:

If we have to take the whole world as one population then probably the French might fall within the top three positions but not when we slice the population and stick to the Americans. But still, about 25% that is one-fourth of the population craves for French Cuisine.


Thai cuisine is quite close to the Chinese cuisine, but only 24% of the Americans love it. But we have to be glad that at least the Thai cuisine has managed to grab a place for itself on the top 10 list.
