Final: Armenia vs. Malaysia

Today comes the time that we must again eliminate a national cuisine that we enjoyed a great deal.  Whichever of Armenian or Malaysian food has made its last featured appearance on The World Cup of Food has been a pleasure to prepare and especially to eat.

Malaysian dishes on The World Cup of Food:

Armenian food is hearty, rustic, and rich with an odd familiarity despite its origins thousands of miles and an ocean away.  The amazing variety of meatballs, grilled meats, and rice pilaf-like dishes leaves plenty of room to explore the cuisine further.

Malaysian food is spicy, a little funky (shrimp paste and screwpine leaves are that rare combination of disgusting and delicious), and exotic.  The flavors and ingredients of Southeast Asia are ones that we want to continue to pursue and present to our readers, so Malaysia has been chosen to advance to the round of thrity-two, where its next opponent will be Cuba.
