I like soups, vegetables, meets and seafood.

My favourite food is difficult to define, but I think is seafood's soup.

Nacatamales. We have the custom to eat "nacatamales" on Christmas time and many people in their offices buy they each Fridays for breakfast. Nacatamales are made of corn floor, pork, potatoes, carrots, olives, among other ingredients, then wrapped in banana's leaves and finally cooked on water.

I like pasta, every kind of pasta is nice for me and I like my country's traditional foods a lot. For example Turkish kebab, sarma, mantı ( a kind of ravioli), pide( Turkish pizza) etc :)

I like meat foods like steak. And in Turkey there are a lot of restaurants sell kebab.
