Around the World in 80 Days- The Challenge

So, my friend Matty just offhandedly said one day, "The boy and I are thinking of trying to eat all the different kinds of food in HK." I of course, cannot just hear something like this without thinking of how I can turn it into a challenge/game for myself and my friends to compete in.
So, I told Matty "I have an awesome idea. Let's try to eat all the food in HK in 80 days and go around the world cuisine wise in 80 days." We can do it as a team and try to hit as many as possible in twice the amount of time as baby Jesus spent in the desert.
So here are the kinds of cuisine we're going to hit.
The last 10 we had to get really creative on because we ran out of countries! Let us know if we have missed a major one or know of secret spot we should check out!
