Italian cuisine, by far. Pizza and pasta are so incorporated to the meal of weekends in São Paulo to the point that it cannot be more considered "foreign" cuisine. In second place comes the japanese cuisine, and then, arabic. However, due to some obscure reason, mexican food is becoming increasingly popular in São Paulo. We don't have a mexican diaspora; so I guess that this is due to brazilians entrepeneurs who travelled to Mexico - which is a somewhat popular destination amongst upper-class people in Brazil - and tried to bring here their ideas. Fact is that mexican tourists in SP say that the taste of these restaurants is very distinct of Mexico.

For Lima, Japanese or Venezuelan. If you count chifa then it would easily be China, but chifa is like peruvian-chinese fusion so that is different than your typical Chinese cuisine

For New York, Italian

Funny how foreign cuisine is such a minority in Italy, but Chinese is getting common. Greek and African are also present where I live, with some Indian thrown in. Kebab is strangely not very common compared to France where it's become almost national food.

Once you're out in the province where I live, even a southern restaurant is a rarity, it's all Bolognese, or Tuscan at the most when going towards the Appenines. People in Italy are really close to their food and generally have little interest in foreign cuisine.

I am not going strictly by city, but by region. I live in Southern California, in Greater Los Angeles Area. I would say overall, the most widespread foreign cuisine found here in Mexican. But, since this area is sprawling, there are pockets of areas where the most common foreign cuisine will be Chinese, Taiwanese, Korean, Vietnamese. So, I just state it vary broadly, if its not Mexican, it usually is some type of Asian cuisine. There are some cities within the Los Angeles area where it would be Armenian or even Persian.

In China, it is American fast-food.

The city I was born in is not very big, but AFAIK it has 5 KFC, 2 McDonald's, 1 pizzahut, 1 Burger King...

After that, it should be Japanese (mostly run by Chinese).

In most French cities it is probably North African fast food. They are everywhere.
