You know with so much diversity in ethnic food in the US (and other places) it's difficult to answer. The worlds gone global, you don't need to travel to Italy to get good Italian food. Travel and (or for) great meals is no longer a common component. To be honest, the best meals I've had are from a few places in my own town.

That being said - you can't have a bad meal in Italy, you just can't. It's all good. I love Indian food as well and have had good food in India but really a better Indian resteraunt in the US fills my needs as well. I love Chinese food, which is actually very diverse in China based on region and type, it's tough to classify. We all know the Chinese food in America is not like the Chinese food in China. My only problem with Chinese food in China is bones! I just can't take up the Chinese habit of eating it and then spitting out the bones on a plate.
Some places are food boring however - England, Netherlands. Again you can always find good Indian food in England and in the Netherlands you can find a good Indonesian reteraunt or two.

Default Nom nom nom

West coast Australia for fish (Barramundi)
But New Zealand also do some great fresh fish
The best black pudding in Glasgow, Scotland
Indian food in Birmingham, England (sorry, but tried this in multiple continents/ countries and still the best...hoping to travel to try the real deal soon!)
Stifado beef stew, Greece (any island/ and the mainland, but Rhodes was the best I've tasted)
Eggs benedict.. Roberts, New York

Unfortunately, there're some amazing meals that aren't necessarily repeated in future visits!
