We'll probably go.

There are the usual pavillions we go to: French-Canadian, Ukranian, Japanese.

I also like the Indian and Brazilian pavillions. If you haven't seen Capoiera (sp?) it's well worth it!

There was a Japanese pavilion last year but I don't see it listed this year.

The Brazil pavillion is amazing. It's the highlight of the ones that I've seen.

I would avoid the Romanian this year.....trust me. Unless you like the food at the Garden City Inn. It is not authentic Romanian anything.

Believe me I am no fan of Aalto's food! Okay Ukrainian for sure and maybe Cuban or Paraguay. Thanks grumpyrom.
