well the question wasn't referring just to the culture... it was also referring to what the country "has"... as in sells to people for eating.

also, american culture is basically infusion, and you get a lot of infusion cuisine in america.

At least the UK has lots of famous original dishes. All America's known for is fast food junk. :tape: (that's not to say they don't have great *cheap* food, though ;))

The food in the big UK cities is excellent now.

I voted for 'other', with Japan/Oriental cuisine in mind. It's just all the stuff like sushi that I don't like *puke* It's quite fish based out there so I dislike quite a bit of it, having said that I literally adore Chinese style crispy duck pancakes :drool:

Anyways I picked Russia even though it probably doesn't have the worst food. I love my british food and the US fast food. And I couldn't be bothered to think about other countries with even worse food.

Yes, me too. I hate fat, so when I eat meat, I always remove all white parts!
When I was young I was obsessed with it, so my parents had a very difficult job convincing me to eat some meals!

Without being defensive, I wonder how many people who voted for the UK, did so on the basis of the stereotype, rather than based on actual experience?

I agree with Bloc Party - there are hordes of really good restaurants all over the UK (yes, there are civilised bits beyond London ;) ) and me and my contemporaries believe we eat very well indeed in an ordinary Welsh city thank you very much. That "greasy spoon" image is pretty old hat now don't you think? They hardly exist any more. And with reference to the thread starter, I can't remember the last time I had a "greasy burger" in a pub? Pub food in the UK is not half bad in general terms, although you'll obviously come across the odd nightmare establishment every so often, just like you would in every other country on the planet.

well the only thing really "dutch" that the locals speak of is like some mixture of potatos or something, and those people didnt really say it was particularly good. There are some good vietnames and thai restaurants in the Dam though, but other than that, it's all french fries, pizza, gyros and the like. try do deny it.:lol:

There is more to Dutch cuisine than that. I never said it was particualrly spectacular, but there is more than a mix of potatos. So you should really go back and try out the rest.

I am going to spend 3 weeks next Summer in Holland, by the beach. It's near Bergen, a nice tourist resort and near the cheesemarket - Sluggy loves Holland, holland is nice, and the people are very down to earth. Of course there is delicious dutch food, it's just that Amsterdam caters to the tourist crowd and there is no reason to prepare super-quality foods, when you can sell fast foods just as well - the shere volume of tourists makes it necessary to provide american-style fast foods.

It's no surprise that most American classics are German derivatives. My mother used to make Jagerschnitzel, and it was pretty good. I like the potato pancakes too.

traditional British cuisine owes a huge debt to their converted subjects.

Clearly UK. I have been once in the UK and I will never forget this experience. Pizza with cucumbers and french fries on the pizza. But they also make french fries with lasagna. :banghead: That was awful. But they don't seem to realise that their food is horrible. The only way to eat correct food in UK is to go in an indian restaurant but that's expensive.

On the contrary I have heard it's possible to eat correct food in the US. There is some good restaurant and some specialities are very good. For example Jambalaya. :drool:

Scandinavians food is on the same level than british one anyway.

I don't know russian food but that can't be worst than british and scandinavians one.
