Why would you think anyone is talking about take out? At least I didn't get that impression. I didn't even get the impression the Op was talking about restaurant food. I took it as talking about food in general. Maybe I just didn't get it????

I think I would have to say: good old American because we do have so many choices depending on where we live or what we like. Second to that would be any Asian and spoiled brat would pick Mexican. We really like almost all ethnic foods, whether we eat in a restaurant or prepare the food at home.

Punjabi (Indian).

I would argue that American cuisine is a national cuisine made up of multiple ethnic cuisines and thus an invalid answer :-)

DH would say American because he could never give up his beloved steak.

I'd would grudgingly say Chinese simply because there's enough variety to keep me reasonably happy. Noodles, vegies, all types of meat and seafood, rice, fried foods, soups, hot and spicy, sweet and sour, garlic, etc.

However, Chinese food doesn't generally go well with red wine. I might have to rethink my answer.

I haven't even tried Korean yet, but I hear good things about it. Same with Brazilian. Nor have I tried anything African.
I like Chinese buffets ( at least the places where there is enough turnover of the food that it's reasonably fresh and not all dried out), but a year of non-stop Chinese buffet would put you into sodium overload for sure....

Yeah, when I go back and re-read the title of the thread, I see that's what the OP meant. Meaning, of course, that I'd have to limit myself to fried chicken when it's time to pick ethnic food. I think I'll revise my pick to Chinese in that case. Thing is, what type of food would NOT be considered ethnic food of one sort or another?

Asian would do it for me, particularly fond of Thai food.
