I need examples of ethnic restaurants in countries you wouldn't expect to find that type of ethnic restaurant.

I have to make a small presentation to a work group in a few months, and I would like some real examples of ethnic restaurants in countries where you wouldn’t necessarily expect that type of ethnic restaurant.
For instance, there was a Mexican restaurant in Singapore in the early 1980's called Chico's N Charlie's (and it's still there, from what I gather.) But it was completly out of place in early 80's Singapore.
Other examples might be a Somali restaurant in Tokyo, a Malaysian restaurant in Namibia or a Mexican restaurant in Tasmania. Anything that caught your eye and made you go hmmmm, that seems a bit out of place here…..
Current actual examples if possible, though historical examples are welcome as well so I can put together a big list.
