Bonus List

MOST POPULOUS COUNTRIES TO HAVE NO U.S. RESTAURANTS SPECIALIZING IN THEIR CUISINE

The United States has a lot of ethnic restaurants representing more than one hundred countries--anywhere from the commonly represented ones like Mexico, Italy, India, China and Japan to the rarely found ones like Angola (there's one in Massachusetts) or Mozambique (there's one in California). Here are the largest countries to not be specifically represented by a restaurant in the U.S. (though in some cases, a neighboring country with a similar cuisine will be represented, such as Kenya being represented when Tanzania is not). Most of the countries are African countries where emigrants are more likely to move to Europe than to the United States. Note that this list (compiled in May 2008) could change at any time due to restaurants opening or closing.

1. Congo, Dem. Rep.
2. Tanzania
3. Saudi Arabia*
4. Madagascar
5. Kazakhstan
6. Burkina Faso
7. Malawi
8. Niger
9. Zimbabwe
10. Mali

* While there are technically no "Saudi Arabian" restaurants in the U.S., there are a small handful of "Arabian" restaurants which address the broader Arab cuisine instead of that specific to Saudi Arabia.
