Countries with the Best Food

The Top TenXW

1ItalyItaly, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe . Italy covers an area of 301,338 km2. With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the 3rd most populous EU member state . Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, ...read more.

I'm in love with Italian food! I can also say that it has variety from 10.000 kinds of spaghetti and pizza also sea food. I've eaten there a pizza and it only had tomatoes and mozzarella it was the best I could ever imagine it's awesome! And also let's face it everyone like Italian food!

Most of the negative comments were written by one mentally disturbed idiot who posts the SAME comments to any list where Italy is at the top or close to it: most beautiful countries, best countries, etc...

Sometimes he pretends being swiss, sometimes African, sometimes Asian, etc... Then he always votes his own posts tens of times to give them visibility, he can do it because no registration is required to this website. You can easily spot him by looking at the hilarious grammar mistakes, he can barely speak English. He clearly has some sort of mental issues, or maybe he's angry because he was beaten by some Italians (who should be thanked for that).

That's how sad, meaningless and completely failed his life is. A total failure for someone who should have never been born.

And yet Italy tops the rank anyways...

Everyone is complaining about the fact that Italy doesn't have enough "cultural restaurants" or even fast-food restaurants although I have to agree with that, this list is about the foods that are famous and from that country. You may not have to agree with me because of course we have different taste preferences but I am currently living in Italy (I'm form Canada) and find myself easily finishing a whole fairly large size pizza to myself and still able to eat some amazing gelato. While as in Canada I can barley finish a few slices. It's the quality, freshness and overall culture that's put into the Italian food which makes it so amazing, it's never greasy and everything is made to perfection with care.

Italians take so much pride in their own culture and food although sometimes a bit too much which is why you may see a lack of diversity when it comes to cuisine in Italy.

In Italy every region is different with it's specialties. For example, the original ...more

Pizza, lasagna, spaghetti, must I go on?!?

2Mexico

TACOS, QUESADILLAS, TORTAS AND OF COURSE A MARGARITA TO ENJOY. MEXICAN FOOD IS TRULY THE BEST FOOD.

Mexican food has every thing, from very spicy, to sour, sweet, all kind of eatable meat and all variety of seafood, the desserts are also tasty. The food can be eaten in a very fancy restaurant as in a food stall on the street and it taste just awesome. The ingredients are very common now and can be found in any where in the planet and can still taste just as it is eaten in Mexico, obviously if is well prepared.

In some countries, you need to go and explore the street to definitely find the real flavor of the local food, and if you eat it out side the country it is very difficult to meet the right flavor as in the original.

Undoubtedly the best food in the world. The only problem is that real authentic food with real authentic ingredients can only be found in Mexico. What you get outside the country is a poor rendering of what Mexicans really eat at home: meat, poultry, vegetables, sea food. You have to remember that Mexico has given to the world many of the ingredients of the other cuisines: tomato, chillies (most chillies come originally from Mexico), beans, vanilla, Turkey, cucumber, avocado, and a long etc. What would be Italian food without the Mexican tomato? Or the Indian without our chillies?

Mexican food is love

The ever-popular sushi, teriyaki, tempura, and miso soup all belong to Japanese cuisine. Add to that a healthy balance of vegetables, fish, fruits, meat, and rice EVERYWHERE, and you have Japanese food!

Admittedly some people may get a little put-off by all the weird stuff Japan comes up with to eat, but I think a little adventure and mystery thrown into a meal is a wonderful thing.

The Japanese have the TASTIEST healthy food on the planet!

Ever seen a fat Japanese guy? Well I have... But he was a sumo wrestler! - MeowMix

Healthiest, tastiest, mouth watering food ever. Anything in Japanese is gold.

I used to be a foreign missionary (Christian) in China so I've eaten my share of Chinese food. The food over there has a more far eastern flavor to it. Over here in the USA the flavor of Chinese food is more westernized. However I like both styles very much & I like the wide variety of food they have as well! I love lo mein & mu shu beef the most! They have the best food in the world in my humble opinion!

China's food AMAZING! Who doesn't want sweetcorn soup, duck pancakes, and lovely spicy sweet new food to try. China's the place to eat throughout a holiday.

Yeah no offense to you whities, but what you call "Chinese food" really isn't Chinese food. Even though I am half white have Chinese, I still understand this culture. REAL Chinese food is duck, pig blood, pig ears, pig intestines, beef with noodles and soup, also called ็‰›่‚‰้บต.

But things like lo mien, dumplings, spring rolls, fried rice, although I love all that stuff, is American Chinese food. If you want real Chinese food, don't go to those buffets, they suck! Go to China Town, and buy duck, it's great!

But Chinese food is awesome. My family makes Chinese food all the time, so I know what good Chinese food is!

Well, China deserves to be 1 or 2.

Well anyway, whities (no offense my dad is white, but he eats REAL Chinese food. ) stop acting like you eat Chinese food, cause you don't...

I agree Chinese food is the best you need to try that's a recommendation

I believe that when you travel around in China, you can try different kinds of food. In China, different places have different characteristics. Because of the long history, Chinese people have many opportunities to focus on the food. What's more, Chinese people always pay close attention to making food. Chinese food is praised by not only Asians but also the people who come from all over the world. I promise that Chinese food would never let you down. - JerryGuo

Some people may think that the only things there are to American food are hamburgers and hotdogs, but my response to that assumption: Bar B Que, country cooking, and Cajun cooking. That's all I really need to say and then there also hot wings and philly cheese steaks. Also got to love the Mac n Cheese. - guyonawebsite94

American food is more than burgers and grease, guys. There's tons of options. You can go down south and try Cajun foods such as gumbo, or try some amazing seafood dishes in New England. Better yet, try a pastie for food of Michigan's upper peninsula. There's the Coney dog, Detroit and Chicago-style American pizza, as well as many other foods. It's amazing, so give it a chance. - Turkeyasylum

Tex-Mex, BBQ, Cajun, New England, Fusion. There's so many cuisines to try, a variety of foods, and something for everyone. All countries base their opinion of American food on McDonald's, but no American eats there every day. - ethanmeinster

American food is the best for food and junk food

Thai food is one of the best food in this world. It have a variety of tasted. who can compared to the thai food? I wonder. Before you vote for other country, ask your self have you try the real Thai food yet.

Thai food is very tasty and unique. It is healthy because of the herbs and vegetables as well as delicious... It has a great mixture of sourness and spiciness.

I have thai meal everyweek here in Australia and yes, It's really yummy.
Last few months I've been to Thailand and I just discoverd their street foods are 10 times better!

Looks like people voting in this pool haven't tried anything beyond fast food... Sad. French and Spanish food should on the top of the list while I'm still figuring out why English food is even considered...

How on earth is Spain so far down on this list? Healthy and tasty.

Spanish tortilla, paella, ham, olive oil: healthy and tasty food

Spanish food should be on TOP THREE among with Italy and China, COME ON who are voting on this list?

10EnglandEngland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west.

Roast dinner, sherperds pie, fish and chips, pork pie, toad in the hole, bangers and mash, cornish pasties, jam roly poly, rhubarb crumble, apple eves pudding, key lime pie, victoria sponge, scones, bakewell tart, banofee pie, custard, wagon wheels, eton mess...

The list is endless. Our food is amazing and should be first on this list

Thank you for the examples, but key lime pie is an American dessert and as for custard I'm not sure what it is, but it's not particularly English.

Its always nice to have a real English meal, made with local fresh meat and veg. Its a shame that true homemade English classics are getting forgotten. And people never seem to find the true English/British greats.

I have traveled considerably, I am not an exenophope when it comes to food - I'll try anything. However for sheer variety you can't best Uk shops... The supermarkets and specialty shops are amazing. Virtually anything I've tried abroad I've been able to buy in the UK. Sometimes with difficulty but none the less I've found it. As for Brit food, give me roast anytime... Rule Britannia...

Who doesn't like Yorkshire Puddings, Shepard's Pie, or Roast Dinner?! - LemonComputer

Greek traditional cuisine is unique. If you don't believe it, come find out yourselves! - funkymonkey

I go to Greece every single year for months at a time, and have never, EVER had a bad meal. And I'm not joking. Me and my family brought some friends with us one time and they said the exact same thing. In fact, sightseeing and the beaches come second to food, which takes up first place on my trips and is all I think about there.

Moussakas, Tzatziki, Gyros, Ouzo.. So mediterranean and so healthy!

My vote is for Greek food with Italian a very close second!

13CanadaCanada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world . This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories .

Although I do prefer Mexican food, I have to clear up some of the comments left here because it is making my country appear super lame. Quebec is home to the famous Poutine... Greasy and artery clogging, but EXTREMELY tasty. Then there's the east coast. If the Maratime provinces could classify as a country, they would give these other guys a run for their money. Atlantic Canada is home to the tastiest seafood you can find ANYWHERE. Lobsters, clams, scallops, mussels, oysters, quahogs, shrimp, mackeral, bar clams, dulse, crab, salmon (particularly maple-candied smoked atlantic salmon. M... ), and much more. All fresh from honest hard-working fisherman. Don't knock Canadian food until you've tried shellfish recipes from your friendly folks on the east coast!

I can not speak for all of Canada but Toronto, Canada has some of the best food your will ever taste anywhere in the world. Mass competition in this mega-city has left it with high quality cuisine at affordable prices. The food comes from all over the world because of its very diverse population of people. Very underrated because it is in Canada and Canada is a small country population wise.

Canada is um... Made up of different cultures, but we do have some signature Canadian food items, like beaver tails, and French toast. And you will never find another country that loves making their own food! And boy do we love our meat and seafood!

They barely have any food that America doesn't have America has the best burgers and New York which is in America has the best pizza

14Korea

There are so many types of food-just go to their dinner table and they have these tons of delicious things... Like so many types of things and I don't even know how to describe them. Versatile tastes... And very very healthy. There was actually this guy (American-as in blond with blue eyes)who had cancer and cured it by eating strictly healthy Korean food. Korean food are mostly, although not all, plant-based, and extremely healthy. That is not to say that their meats are not delicious, because they are amazing!

I been in Korea for three years and I love em. Korea not only has spicy and filthy looking food--although they do still taste good, just that a start is not easy laugh out loud--, they also have mild and soft cuisines. In fact, most of their traditional dishes are not spicy, but sweet, keep the flavor of original ingredients, look gook--use at least five colors--, use natural unique ingredients. Kimchi and Bulgogi are not just enough to explain Korean food!

Korean food is so tasty. I visited a friend and stayed with her parents in Korea. So I ate home cooked meals, restaurant food and traditional dishes served for a family gathering marking the death anniversary of my friend's grandparent.

The food is so tasty and varied. I loved when dining out how the table was filled with a variety of Kimchi, not ordered, but just the condiments to every meal.

The Korean sushi was very disappointing however compared to Japan (I ended up cooking the fish in my soup! ).

I love Korean food!

Germany has a wide variety of food which is misrepresented globally. Germany is not only home to the widest variety of breads on earth, it was the founder of the pretzel, hamburger and serves some of the best meats you will find. Most Germans still eat at home, hence the lack of German restaurants, hence the quality of German produce! Try it out!

Just visit the Oktoberfest. Germany should be number 1!

best food on earth. Especially the bavarian food is just legendary!

19TurkeyTurkey was established on October 29th, 1923. It is located in Westernmost Asia or Southeastern Europe. ...read more.

It is quite simple actually: Ottoman food covers all delicious Lebanese, Balkanise, Greek and Syrian food. More over finises with delicious Turkish coffee. Syrians are proud of their baklava and humus, greeks for their musakka and gyros, balkans for boreks and dolmas. But actually all these are parts of Turkish cuisine.

Food is taken extremely serious in Turkey. Any form of food has to taste delicious, otherwise people would never buy it. This includes the cheapest meal you could buy for $1 to fancy restaurants where a meal could cost over $100. There is no need to pay more if your goal is only eating something extremely delicious. Furthermore, this cuisine is capable of cooking every single vegetable on earth in an extremely delicious way. Finding home style vegetarian meals on streets can become a bit challenging than finding less healthier options. However, inside homes, Turkish people do eat these mastered vegetarian gems more frequently than anything else. Pretty much every nation has master cooking meat and junk food in their own style, but this nation is one of those rare ones that completed their trial and error process probably a few thousands of years ago on cooking vegetables without compromising heath compared to raw vegetables and taste compared to delicious unhealthy ...more

Think of it this way. The Ottoman Empire controlled all these Mediterranean countries and Slavic countries and took their cuisine. Throughout the years, they improved upon all the food they gained. A small shop selling food in Turkey taste just as good as any extremely expensive restaurant in countries like the United States or England. Turkish food is healthy and delicious. Nothing can compare. If you want to go to a country for food, you can't go wrong with Turkey. They understand food better than anyone.

Best food ever

You simply cannot beat the Aussie "Hamburger with the Lot" - fantastic! Also lots of fresh seafood to make our wonderful seafood platters, exotic fruits - mangoes, pawpaws, drinking coconuts etc. A great selection of multi-cultural cuisine, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Japanese, Mexican, Italian, the list is endless. No, Australian food cannot be beaten!

Foods of the world belongs in Australia. You can have anything. Pizza, Fish 'n Chips, Curry in hurry, Peking duck, juicy steaks, or the humble yet mouth watering meat pie. Bloody oath, you could even have shrimp on a barbie. - moses

Australia has some of the best quality fresh foods not to mention the variety. We export top quality beef, lamb and seafood to many countries. We also have some top quality restaurants at reasonable prices without the abundance of chain restaurants common in other countries.

Trust me, go to our country and food from every country you can imagine will be here. Mexico, Japan, China, Italy, France, India, Spain, England, etc. It's limitless! - Mumbizz01
