Iranian
Many people confuse Iranian with Turkish, Indian or even Greek food and whilst there are some similarities, Iranian cuisine is in a league of its own. Utilizing ras al hanout, saffron, preserved lemons, cinnamon and pomegranates, as well as a vast range of nuts, you can easily find something for every taste. Fruity, tangy, and just a little spicy, try chicken stew with walnuts, served with tahdig rice, which has a crunchy bottom (or top). Of course, you might also associate kebabs with Iranian cuisine and you wouldn’t be wrong. Enjoy a lamb kebab with plenty of yoghurt and mint tea for afterwards.

Russian
Russian cuisine gets a bad name for often being quite dense and lacking complex flavours. However, there are also plenty of famous dishes that more than rectify this reputation. From blinis with caviar, to stuffed cabbage rolls, and grilled shashlik (similar to a skewered kebab), there is plenty to suit even the most refined of connoisseurs. For dessert, try Charlottka, a layered cake reminiscent of a Napoleon, washed down with plenty of vodka, of course.

Hawaiian
Hawaiian cuisine is having a real uptake in popularity at the moment, thanks to poke, a mix of tuna or salmon, rice, edamame beans, wakame, and vegetables. Whilst this is one of the top recommendations when eating Hawaiian food, you can also try their pork buns, which are not dissimilar to those found in dim sum. Thanks to all the influences surrounding Hawaii, which range from China to Japan and Portugal, Hawaiian food is a lot more international than you may think.
