What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

Excellent Japanese food. Many other kinds of food, of varying quality. It is tough to find restaurants because information about them is spread by word of mouth. Walk around neighborhoods and you will find lots of places. Kiulap is a great neighborhood to get to know first. - Aug 7, 2014
For familiar brands from the U.S., there's one McDonald's and many Dairy Queens, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf cafes and KFCs. There are some very good Thai, Japanese, Italian, Middle Eastern and Indian restaurants. Most food isn't expensive. Local food can start at US$1, but expect to spend about US$15/person on average for dinner and US$10 for lunch. - Nov 6, 2013
