What's your favorite meal?

Whether its steak tartar, spaghetti bolognese or a grilled cheese sandwich - your favorite meal can be as extravagant or as bland as you want.

Does the Japanese dish of sushi interest you?

Does the Japanese dish of sushi interest you?

The age old question of what you would want as your last meal on earth has been discussed in movies, books and even amongst inmates on death row.

Most countries around the world can lay claim to at least one or two national dishes, but whether your geographic location influences your personal tastes is another story.

Americans may say they are home to the apple pie and cheeseburger while people in Canada call the beaver tail - a pastry like dessert - their national dish.

In South America, Brazilians have their version of BBQ meat called churrasco and Peruvians are brilliant using a grain called quinoa.

Like the English meal of fish and chips?

Like the English meal of fish and chips?

Travelling east to Europe, the English are famed for their fish and chips and the Italians are infamous for everything pasta related.

In Africa, the corn dish fufu is generally regarded as a staple and any goat dish is also very popular in the region.

Of course, Indian cuisine is synonymous with curry dishes and for its use of dozens of fragrant spices.

In Asia, Japanese food can range from sushi to vegetable tempura and Koreans are famous for their national dish, pickled cabbage called kimchi.

As we can see, cuisine around the globe can be as different as apples and oranges, but this is where we want you to come in.

We want to know what your favorite meal is - whether it's from Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe, Australia or any mix in between. Maybe it's something you've had once and will always remember or is it something you eat every day?

We also want you to send in your photos of your favorite dishes so we can show them on CNN International's Connect the World - send your pictures to connecttheworld@cnn.com

Please leave your comments below and if you have some photos you want to share, please e-mail us on the address above.

    to be honest, I've been "victim" to many cultures and foods, but personally I am a Canadian Chinese mix.

    I'll list them out, and if it's my last meal, I guess all of them together will seem nice:

    Japan: Pufferfish sashimi (never tried)
    Korea: Korean BBQ
    Taiwan: Bubble tea
    Canada: Poutine, Tim Hortons Iced Cap.
    USA: Krispy Kreme, seafood from Alaska
    Europe: Fish and Chips.

    choose only one? Pufferfish Sashimi.

    Mansaf, the Jordanian national dish which consists of lamb meat, yogurt and rice. Served in a big dish and eaten by hand. A Super treat.

    For my last meal, I would have a lot of canned beans with sauerkraut, fried onions and boiled eggs with a couple of Canadian beers to wash it down. Guess why.

    A Kurdish dish named (iprakh) is rich of vitamins and very delicious. I recommend every family worldwide to make it weekly because it is very good for health besides it is extremely delicious.

    At that point I really don't think it would matter because I don't think it could be tasteful ,whatever ,you chocked down, preparing to Die..... Don't be to happy to pick your last meal. If we are lucky we don't have to choose... I'd be glad not to choose ..

    Nothing better for your "last meal" than a nice Bolivian spicy pork fricasé, served on a bed of warm hominy with a side of black "chuño" potato...and some Paceño beer to accompany it. Yummm!

    Here's a picture of this delectable plate: http://degustarycomer.blogspot.com/2009/03/fricachito-de-chancho-para-su-paladar.html

    Why on earth is this an important question. Is there something being planned that we don't know about yet? If you knew this would be your last meal, would you have apetite?

    Aloha, Your story line is a good one,, if we could choose one last meal, or 'dish" if you will,,, I have been around the world,in search of the most fine Sushi, or simply put,,fine Japanese delectable. Here it is, In my opinion,,, the best there is on this planet, prepared by famous Japanese Master Chef,, Watanabe san, Sushi paradise, in Kihei Maui, Hawaii. The dish is " Seared Salmon" quite simply named, but but be advised it is a world class simplicity divine! Made from the "Toro" or special slice of the salmon belly, that he saves for us special people,,, the most rich portion, hand seared with a special torch, bound with shiso leaf, fresh ground spicy dikon radish, scallion, and fresh ground ginger,, now,,, just a few drops of Watanabe's infamous ponzu sauce,,, so here is the anecdote and special quote for your story,, when people ask me about it I have always said,,,, well,, if the Captain comes out of the cockpit and says , ladies and gentleman, we are going down,, "is there anything else you would like?" Then here it is, the very last taste i could imagine ,,, in the end,,, DP Maui Hawaii
    ps: If you are ever here visting Hawaii, You must have it here! I sent fab photos of this dish as well, to connecttheworld@cnn.com

    I'm a Nigerian and my favourite food is fufu and 'Afia Efere' soup. The soup is a white soup full of goat meat. I'm already salivating.
