There were salty, sweet, sour, spicy, vegetarian, not vegetarian, dishes from all the origins imaginP2able, we had the luck to try dishes from the nationalities such as: French, Swedish, Finnish, Russian, Kazakhstani, Ukrainian, Nepalese, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Iranian, Lebanese, Mexican, Peruvian, Guatemalan, Ecuadorian, Brazilian, Bangladeshi. Everyone took the time to prepare and present their specialties, even though it was hard to get the original flavors and ingredients, everyone made an excellent showcase of their traditional food.
