LOL I had them all except one with 25 seconds remaining and then thought to myself.... what if the last one isn't in Asia...what if it's somewhere like Brazil? I typed it in and started laughing... it was! Very interesting trivia there! Nice Quiz!

I was thinking the same thing. After typing all the Asian countries I knew, I figured, where else do people eat a lot of rice?

They actually do have a very large Japanese-Brazilian community there, but also Latin American countries use a lot of rice in their cuisines. I'm kind of surprised that Mexico doesn't make the cut.

Ecuador, Colombia, Dominican Republic, and South Korea are other countries where people eat rice daily or at each meal but aren't on the list. I guess because they're too small. Mexicans don't consider rice a staple like these other countries.

All the authentic Mexican restaurants around here serve generous portions of Mexican rice with their entrees.

Restaurants may serve it, but the staple is corn. Corn tortillas are at every meal in homes. I used to think rice was a staple, too, before being corrected by the with Mexicans (born and raised in Mexico) I lived with, and staying in Mexico. Rice is a filler, thus popular at restaurants. It's an occasional side dish in homes. Despite their popularity at restaurants (and trucks), tacos are also not very common as a home meal.

We eat rice every day in Brazil. Every meal must be accompanied by rice and beans. I was surprised Mexico wasn't there, though. I thought they ate a lot of rice too...

Only missed Myanmar, but only because I thought I'd typed it already.

Some reason about halfway through this quiz I began thinking it was Asian only and didn't think about Brazil... Whoops.
