好きな

It's being used attributively, to modify "Japanese food". 好きだ is used predicatively. だ is the copula, so 好きだ almost always occurs at the end of a sentence. It cannot be used before nouns to modify them.

    Perhaps it would be valuable to elaborate on when it would be proper to use 好きだ . – Ringil May 1 at 12:06
