My STO Main, Takeshi, is Japanese, so he (naturally) enjoys a variety of Japanese dishes, but he also acquired a taste for Italian Food (particularly Spaghetti), Pizza, and Steak while in Starfleet Academy. And while Takeshi primarily drinks water, he acquired a taste for Hot Chocolate, Peppermint Tea, and Root Beer while in Starfleet Academy, and Takeshi usually starts out his day with a cup of Raktajino, which his First Officer (a Klingon who joined Starfleet) introduced him to.

Captain Robin Zhang spent his early years in his native East Asia on Earth (specifically Taiwan), and so naturally is quite fond of the local cuisine. The passing years and practical concerns, however, had led to a more varied palate.
His primary vice is Herbal Tea, always ordered hot from the replicator. He doesn't mind the odd Raktajino or Vulcan mocha, though.
Zhang begins his mornings with Quintotriticale porridge served with a small drizzle of maple syrup, followed by one fresh orange.
Lunch tends to be varied, although he is most often seen with a bowl of Udon or Tempura Soba. On Fridays he participates in what his First Officer and best friend initiated since their Academy days - Pieday Friday.
Dinner consists of steamed seasonal vegetables (both Earth and off-world) with rice or pasta. He likes to keep dinner reasonably light.
Whilst by no means a vegetarian, he expresses discomfort whenever he sees generous portions of beef or lamb on the table - he prefers Pork and Chicken in that order.
Zhang generally dislikes Earth beer, as they make him extremely nauseous. However, he has grown quite fond of wine (Chateau Picard), Andorian and Romulan Ales (the latter he often obtains from a junior security officer whose father is a Senator on Romulus*)
His Chief Tactical Officer and domestic partner sometimes catches him indulging on comfort food (fish and chips, lasagna) in their quarters, which usually leads to her confiscating said food item and making him sleep alone in the Officer's Lounge that evening.
