Top 10 Countries with the Best Food
Liu Chiu-long, if you get married in Italy, of course you're going to be served Italian food. It would be like Italians going to Taiwan & expecting Italian food - it wouldn't happen. Did you not check with the person arranging the wedding what cuisine you would be eating? Some detailed research about the wedding cuisine would've saved you from your so-called "disaster".
I've been to Italy and found Italians to be hospitable and friendly.
People have only tasted the tip of the iceberg of Italian cuisine, their are so many delicious dishes that no one knows of outside of Italy like Chiacchere, Recco focaccia, Piadina and much more. Most of the Italian cuisine is made out of the most simple and healthiest ingredients, preparation is also very simple, the final result is a savoury and delicious dish which screams Italy in every bite.
If you ask me I think Italy is a little "overrated". I mean I love Italian food but it's India that should be at first place because India is the main spice producer.
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...
Among the best pastries in the world, the best sauces, the best sweets, the best meats, fishes (form Atlantic, Mediterranean for the mainland and lots more with including islands..).
France it's also lots of different regional cuisines.
Lots of different tastes coming from other territories and also Caribbean, Polynesian, from French Guiana, Reunion etc.
Also in France, aside from its great diversity of tastes and flavors of its cuisine, you will find lots of cuisines from more than 85 other countries.
Which makes France the first European Country with so many choices.
Without missing the fact of the native country of modern cuisine, now presents in any country.
The only problem of French food is that they are not known as they should. People know only snails, frogs and mussels, but definitively French are just rarely eating those kind of foods and in a complete different manner that they are known abroad.
Just France must be in the top ...more
You are clever? So, don't listen stereotypes about France and French stuffs, just go in France and try the numerous kind of restaurants, from the farmer to the gastronomic via the fast-food, even the gastronomic fast-food. You like to eat lots of variety of meats, fresh fishes (from Mediterranean, Atlantic, North Sea..), most famous cheeses with an harmonized red wine, the most famous sauces from the lightest one to one made with butter ans cream.. You want to eat Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Spanish, American etc... no problem, you will find finest restaurants offering food from more than 120 countries.
French food is one of the healthiest in the world, from OECD the risk having a diseases related to food is one of the lowest in the world.
Snails and frogs are eaten in more then 60 countries and there is absolutely no risk of diseases coming from those species. And you should know that the slime produced by snails has interesting properties used in medicine to treat some skin disorder, it's used in cosmetic, it's an antiseptic.
Concerning cheese, it's absolutely the contrary, used as probiotic. Telling the contrary is totally wrong and can be, those kind of claims, accusations may also be consequences of prosecution.
In France they eat lots of diverse vegetables, fruits, fishes and meats.
Their meals are really complete even if in certain regions they are still using maybe too much fat (butter or meat). In general they have eat import large amount of food from the whole world (Rices, cereals, Asian food, African food..). And the ratio of healthy food and oil is increasing (Quinoa, wild rices, canola oil, colza oil, walnut oil...). The ratio of obesity is one of the lowest among the so-called Western countries. And the famous baguette is eaten in more than 98% of countries.
Mexico has the best food of any country, it's not even up for debate. I could understand the popular opinion that has led to Italy being at #1, and as delicious as Italian food is, it's all the same. Pasta, cheese, and some sort of tomato sauce. Meanwhile, Mexico has the largest variety of spices, meats, and fish of any country. Tomatillo sauce is particularly out of this world. Also, personally, Mexican food is always something I will be in the mood for. With other cuisines, I'm only occasionally in the mood for it. I also must mention how Mexico also has the best beverages of any country.
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?
Most of the people do not know the huge variety of cuisine that a country like Mexico can offer not even the Mexican people. This is natural since the number of delicious dishes found in Mexico is disturbingly big!. In 2010 UNESCO added the Mexican cuisine to the Intangible Cultural Heritage list, being only the Japanese and French the other two recognized cuisines. It was very surprising for me to find a traditional soup in restaurants in Europe under the concept of luxury when in reality the soup was very cheap and fast to make. For me it was very basic Mexican cuisine (way far from the good one) at a very expensive price.
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.
Japanese and French food are the basis of Gastronomy in the early 20th century they join their talent and create the Nouvelle Cuisine. They are both complementary and progress, to improve, involve themselves in a mutual respect.
Japan and France are also known to share ideas with each other in the realms of art and cooking. Japan has been heavily influenced by French cuisine within the past few decades, as seen on the television show Iron Chef. Anime and manga are popular in France: manga represents 1,400 of the 4,300 annual book publications and 40% of the comics sales.
While sashimi and sushi are my favorites, it feels like Westerners have access to a sliver of Japanese cuisine. There's the elaborate multi-dished haute cuisine, kaiseki, which maximizes the flavors of fresh ingredients that reflect the four seasons. There's the wonderful pub food, izakaya, which encompasses all sorts of ingredients raw, grilled, simmered, steamed, and fried. Japan has an awesome range of unique vegetables. And more than any cuisine, except maybe French, it melds the aesthetics of food with taste. And the Japanese may indeed prize freshness more than any other nationlity.
Why is this only 6, should be at least 3 behind Thai and Chinese. Sushi, tempura, sushi, their spin on onion soup which I can't remember what is called, sushi, Asian fusion roles like the Philly roll. I want to go to Tokyo some day, I love the culture, food, and people. Plus, it is far healthier compared to all else. That is, if you get it with real, sushi-grade fish and fresh-made. Fish, seaweed, rice, all superfoods. I love Asian in general, mostly it tastes pure, is fun to eat (chopsticks! ), and seems to be not nearly as mass produced as other foods. Love you Asia!
Chinese food should be first place. Like, seriously. Whoever wrote this has no meaning of understanding to food. American food is all fat, but Chinese food is healthier; like, you certainly won't see a bucket of popcorn with caramel if you order on-the-go, right? Indian desserts are like kheer and whatever. But Chinese have these SO much better picks. Like, nian gao, egg tarts, rice pudding, and...wait, WHAT THE HECK?! There are Chinese desserts called grass jelly and-DRAGON'S BEARD CANDY?! I am not saying that is so wrong, as I would usually, but the pictures for dragon's beard candy looks nice enough and the grass jelly looks-um, eatable. For goodness sake's, it is NOT made of grass, okay, people?
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!
Look at chinese faces and their talons, any food made by them, no matter how palatable you guys persuade me to believe, I lose my interest.
come on, in china, Mc Donald and KFC are elite foods, for graduate celebration parties and some other rare opportunities. KFC is expensive in china, by china's standard.
I m a chinese, by the way.
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 牛肉麵.
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 love Indian food. Mango lassi, rasagulla, laddoo, gulag jamun, jalebi, burfi, peda, ras malai, yes please! Paneer, curry, creamy potatoes, samosa, roti, butter Naan, chapati, dosa, pakora, dhal, aloo gobi, gobi Manchurian, kachori, chana masala, I NEED THEM ALL. I don't really like spicy that much, but my mom is an amazing cook, so I don't need to eat out. As a person hopelessly addicted to sugar and milk, Indian food is a god sent. India needs to be higher. Much, much higher. Not a lot of countries can make vegetarian dishes so versatile and tasty. To me, if a country knows how to cook its vegetables, I salute them because it's an art in itself.
Spicy, sweet, tasty all variety available only in India..
Pavbhaji, Panjabi, Dhosa, Pani-puri, Idli, Rasgulla.
Vegetarian best food available only & only in INDIA...
heart melting, brain storming, mouth watering, totally fulfilling, Indian food- best in the world.
Each states in this country has its own type of food and totally different recipes. For people who are less familiar to Indian food might think it is spicy but hot and spicy is just one of the many choices. There are thousands of choices that Indian food stimulates each senses of our body and mind. If cooked the proper Indian way, it is healthy, nutritious and absolutely tasty. How many of us can quickly list more than 10 vegetarian recipes well I will stuck with salad, soup, grilled/sauteed or steamed vegetables - no wonder many of us feel vegetarian food is boring. There is endless vegetarian recipe and Indian food is a hidden treasure of tasty vegetarian food as well. India has half of the population who loves their fish and meat - we need 3 of our life times to fully taste all the varieties. I absolutely love Indian food, very well knowing what is available other than the standard restaurant menus. I would rate
The fact that India isn't in the top 5 bothers me a bit. I don't care how spicy Indian food can get, it's nothing I can't handle. From mango lassis, to basmati rice, potato samosas, Indian food is quite a versatile cuisine. And everything is dipped in the creamiest of sauces.
There's more to the United States than food eating competitions and the disgusting fast-food side.. If anyone has had true southern cooking they can say that American cuisine definitely ranks amount the top! And Sloppy joes YUMMY! New York system hot wieners (only found mainly in Rhode Island) along with coffee milk. The United States definitely I would vote it at number 3. 1= Italy (if you've ever eaten a REAL genuine Italian dinner you know that it's been your most favorite meal ever. My fiance and his sisters are first generation Americans but their parents are straight the old country. Every sunday we have a huge family dinner and to me it's just pure bliss) 2: Chinese/China 3: United States/American cuisine 4: Mexican 5: Japan/Japanese 6: India/Indian 7: German 8: French (only thing I've ever like was escargot.. I had that in the French quarter of the Bahamas) 9: Cambodian/Vietnamese 10: thai
United States not only has original fan favorites, like burgers, hot dogs, and chips, it also has all our other favorite foods. Pizza, chocolate, steak, chicken, ice cream, tacos, ribs, bacon, sushi, fruit, macaroni and cheese... Can't believe we're getting whooped by that England crap. The only good things they have are fish and chips, roast dinner, custard, and key lime pie. Everything else sucks, from haggis to shepherd's pie. And Mexican food, I love you so much. You deserve number 1. You're not the best, but at least you're a country with rocking food.
The barbecue here is amazing. KC, Memphis, North Carolina, and Texas all are spectacular. KC is famous for its ribs and beef brisket. The sauce is thick and sweet. Memphis has its ribs, which are prepared with a dry rub, a mixture of spices. North Carolina is pulled pork country. They have an interesting array of sauces. One is clear and vinegar-based, another vinegar-based but with a tomato base, and the last, a mustard based sauce. Texas is all about brisket. A Texas sauce balances the tartness of a NC sauce with the sweetness of a KC sauce.
Best food can be find in USA, this huge and famous country offers you all the food you want, all the food you need. Each state of America has its own types of various food and really typical food due to the diversity of their inhabitants, you will find any kind of foreign cuisines from Mexican to Sri Lankan, from any country of Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania. No other country can offer that, USA should be number 1.
PS: I'm a chef in a restaurant, I came in USA in 1993 and started my current job in 1996, USA gives me everything like it gives any food.
The Thai cuisine is something I'm rarely in the mood for, but when I am, there is nothing as tasty. There is always such a large variety of noodle dishes, and they take vegetable stir fry to another level. I also must mention Thai curry. Insanely good! And there is nothing more refreshing than Thai iced tea.
Thailand is blessed with weather and resource to grow or raise a variety of material. That explains lower cost of living. There are 6 regions in Thailand, each has its own tweak of distinctive flavor, most popular would be northern, southern, and e-san or north eastern.
I'm Thai who has been living in the states for a year now, and I miss the food so much! There are Thai restaurants here but.. It's a completely different story when you get to Thailand itself. I missed fresh seafood, river fish, herbs and all veggies, and noodles shops! I will vote Thailand number 1 definitely, a paradise of food, real tasty, variety and cheap! ($1 awesome street food, $5 nice restaurant... )
Thai cuisine (in Thailand) is by far the best cuisine on earth, much less the rest of Asia.
If you're outside of Thailand, or Southeast Asia, and want to make real Thai dishes, you can forget about it. Outside of the region, you simple cannot get the same, correct, fresh, ingredients that are essential to making real Thai cuisine.
Unfortunately, most folks' experience with Thai cooking is at their local, so-called, 'Thai' restaurant, outside of Thailand, which uses substitute ingredients and other modifications to traditional dishes because either the real recipe is impossible to make in whatever country they're in, or because they're afraid the local culture won't be able to handle the real thing.
Even the street vendor food, the kind they cook to order--not the pre-cooked kind sitting in vats--is better than anything I've had in all of Europe and Asia. With the exception of the Somboon restaurants, stay away from the tourist traps with the fancy decor, and ...more
Duh, best food ever. It's a no-brainier for Thai food. Do you like sauces, flavorings, herbs, veggies, meats in glorious combinations with sticky rice. Pad Pepper Steak is my favorite: Bell peppers with thinly sliced steak in a brown gravy type sauce perfect for dipping sticky rice into. Absolute Heaven! Or try the mildly sweet Mus Mun Curry: Curry sauce with potatoes and chicken. Pad Thai: rice noodles with slight vinegar/ soy sauce flavor, egg, scallions, cilantro and crushed peanuts.
Out of the Top 10 restaurants in the world, 3 are in Spain. Only country with more than 1 Top 10 restaurant in it! Come on! Also, Spain is full of different tastes-- from Andalusia to Barcelona to the Basque country. Spain has many different faces all with different cultures and flavors. Tapas, anyone? Spain has some of the most renowned cheeses, wines, fast foods (tapas), gourmet cuisine, etc and some of the best people! Sweet, sour, spicy, and HEALTHY. And from many wine connoisseurs, I have heard that Spanish wine is equal if not better than many French wines. If any country deserves number 1, it is definitely Spain. Better than English food, at least...
I have tasted worldwide food and that list is completely stupid. Of course if you like going to McDonalds it's pretty sure that you would vote US but we are talking about the BEST FOOD not the most known. Spain is in a Mediterranean country so it has a perfect weather to cultive fresh vegetables and fruits, it is also a peninsula so it has one of the best seafood of the world. Modern Spanish cuisine is the best recognized of the world but the best Spanish dishes are those are made in traditional restaurants... Eat one day in the centre of Madrid or Barcelona in a traditional restaurant and let the tastes enter in your mouth, it's magical. For me, the best food is the Italian but the Spanish is also amazing! I cannot even imagine that is so far away from the top 1, crazy list!
In my opinion Spanish food should be among the top 3. Italian food basically comes down to pasta, while Spanish food has a wide range of awesomeness, from high-quality stakes to delicate, tasty sea-food. Furthermore, it is healthy. Spanish people have the highest life expectancy in Europe for a reason. French food is over-rated in my opinion. In the case of Mexican food, if you are not into spicy, you're messed. I agree Chinese and Indian food are great too if well cooked.
Spanish food is complete, yummy, with a huge variety and a lot of different dishes to taste, depending on the geographical area. Inside Spanish food, mediterranean food will be one of the best. Also, there are some typical meals that are not seen outside the country and, of course, a paella is not a paella if is not ate at a valencia'n restaurant.
I don't know how English food is included here, in my opinion is one of the poorest of the world.
Korea as so many amazing food. From spicy food to sweet pastries, Korea has it all. The ingredients put together are none like the other Asian foods I have tried. There are many spicy foods that Korea has, but you can eat it in a more mild way, which tastes exactly as beautiful. The pastries that they have in Korea is really different. Their combinations are unique. I have also tasted other simpler foods, such as Kimbap, which I highly recommend, along with neng myung, which is cold noodle. Korean food, in the easiest way to express, is wonderful to my taste buds.
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!).
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!
Is only about tasty greek food if by far better quality that any other European country.
Bread is not coming from frozen dough.
Honey 100% natural coming from bees that never feeding with sugar during winter time.
Meat is always fresh and same day. NEVER FROZEN
Vegetables and fruits are almost organic because coming from farmers that never produce big amount of vegetables and thaw mean they have not reason to use chemical for faster grow.
This is the reason that anytime you visit a super market in Greece its impossible to find offseason vegetables and fruits
Actually Greece made pizza no joke They gave it italy for there queen to try queen margirita and they didn't get credit tahts unfair
But the other food in greece is super good to like Gyros and Ouzo.
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.
Mousakas, Tzatziki, Souvlaki, Ouzo, Tsipouro, Retsina, and many others traditional foods... Here in Greece we have Mediterranean cuisine.. Its probably the healtyer cuisine in the world based in greek oil and different types of fruits, vegetables, fishes and many many others... I read something about China and Japan and I realised that those people are really really stupid... Imagine 1.000.000.000 people (in China) eating only rice and diffent kinds of insects and bugs.. gross!
I am sorry, but to people whom have grown up with different cuisines, English food is generally bland and tasteless. I come from an Indian background but live in England, and the people I know think that English food is stodgy and dull. It relies heavily on meat, especially beef. In fact, the only reason why English cuisine is being voted for by me is because of its pastries and desserts.
Also, I see people talking about how England has improved the food of other countries. To this, I have to remark that you have not. You have curbed the taste of the foods from other countries to make it more suitable to the general English palate.
Because English food itself is not especially good (forgive me for saying so) English people (unlike most other countries) seldom go out to eat English food (or even eat it in their homes). This helps make choices for eating out in the UK more eclectic than almost any country.
English food being bad is such an old boring cliché. The variety is a phenomenal mainly due to multiculturalism. Go elsewhere in Europe e.g Italy all you get is pasta and pizza. True there are other restaurants but the locals don't use them and economics takes over.
Switzerland - pizzas, cheese, beef, pizza, kebab, pizza end of.
France - Tripe, Variety of bottom feeding arthropods, pizza and kebab
England - Fish n' chips, Carvery, Pub Classics, Chinese, Indian, Italian, Local and that's in a Devonshire village.
One thing that makes me sad is that people insult English food because after WW2 we had limited things to cook with and the food was quite bad at that time. However nowadays the food is great. Another problem is foods such as egg tarts are thought of as being Portuguese when in fact an English man named lord stow created them. A lot of English foods people think were created overseas. A lot of semi English/Indian food was created with a mix of both thanks to a British born Indian woman. Some of those foods you wont even find in India.. The list goes on but I wont..
I was stationed there while in the Army. NEVER had a bad meal in any gasthaus and always started with the goulash soup. These great meals washed down with a good German beer is as good as it gets. Forget it if you are a calorie counter. Tastes great because anything fried is cooked in lard and/or cream. No diet soda, no lite beer, no lo-cal crap. These folks know how to eat! Loved being there and always looked forward to eating in their restaurants. AND if you go there, Augsburg had the best bakery I have ever shopped. Located on the Rathaus plaza. Thanks Germany for a lot of great dining experiences!
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!
Such an underrated cuisine. And it's more than just sausage; and there is a willingness to mix sweet and savory as well; and if this were a list of top foods that pair best with beer, German food would have to be #1; and if it were a list of the best beers...German beers. There seems to be a slow realization of this in the States.
Better than Turkey... Turkey has enslaved too many people for me to be sure if some things are really theirs... Germany on another hand has their own original stuff. Bless them. I really enjoyed their food on my holiday there. Highly recommend them.
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, mackerel, 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!
Our food is underrated. It is so good, like jeez! Maple syrup Is a famous Canadian thing that we add to our recipes. Like maple cookies or maple bacon. We also have good fast food like A&W which is a fast food burger place mostly found in Canada. We have tasty French Canadian food like poutine. Tasty fries covered in gravy and cheese! If you like seafood Nova Scotia has very amazing lobster and Newfoundland has the best Atlantic Call of Duty ever. On the west coast there are millions of delicious seafood. In Vancouver you can eat salmon with maple syrup. On the island (Vancouver island) there is so much seafood like crab, salmon, prawns, tuna and it is all just so fresh! Canada is just so tasty! Alberta beef, west coast salmon, east coast lobster and Quebec poutine!
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.
Some of the best beef and pork in the world are raised right in Canada! Maple Syrup, Mac n' Cheese, and poutine, they truly are Canadian staples. Not the mention that we have people from all over the world that have joined our great nation and brought their cooking styles with them. If you can think of a type of food, odds are, you can find it somewhere!
Pho, bun, spring rolls, summer rolls. Their flavours are so nice. All the herbs add a freshness to the dishes. The lawns are really succulent. Vietnamese panache use crispy and filled with delicious meat. Too underrated! So healthy!
The most healthy food. The least fat/oil, more veggies (raw and fresh), not salty, plenty dishes with their own sauces. Feel full but not heavy.
Vietnamese food is combination between the tropical cuisine, Chinese influence and French culture as Vietnam was colony under the French for more than 80 years.
For me, Vietnamese food is number one. You'll have the same opinion as mine if you try it once. CNN has announced the list of 40 Vietnamese cuisines which you should enjoy. They are really very delicious. Hope you'll visit Vietnam and enjoy them someday. Make sure you'll agree with me.
A beautiful combination of east and west, very balanced I guess that is because the country was ruled by both western and Eastern powers in the past. Nowhere else you could run into a French baguette and a bowl Chinese noodle right then. Should be in top 5!
I would have to agree. Most people have not tried many different foods. I would LOVE to say and be able to vote on every nationalities food. All are so unique and tasty in their own way!
They have delicious local dishes such as Fondue, Rösti, Raclette, Roast and even Risotto is Swiss. Also they are inspired by their neighbours France, Italy and Germany. Great wine they have too. Just delicous.
Don't make the Swiss number 38 they make better chocolate than Belgium
Swiss are not able to cook delicious pasta or pizza, just able to get money to put in ther banks!
I believe that Moroccan gastronomy is phenomenal and extremely diversified. Tagine, Moroccan couscous, pastilla, tanjia and rfissa these are my favourites. I think that everyone should definitely taste Moroccan food. Did you try Moroccan tea? Believe me, once you try, you'll be addicted to it and forget about morning coffee. Likewise, Moroccan food is rich in vegetables and olive oil, and thus in powerful antioxidants, so it is really prefect as a healthy diet.
I'm a HUGE FOODIE. I've been to 24 countries and after Morocco, it topped my list! Not only are the regional dishes themselves an incredible blend of spices, meats, veggies, and dried fruits, but the produce itself is EXCEPTIONAL. Even something like freshly squeezed OJ or almonds, and dried fruit blew me away in its taste and freshness. Morocco tops my list.
I love me some Japanese cuisine and flavors (not it isn't just sushi), Gallego regional Spanish cuisine (freshest seafood on earth), and Peruvian flavors, specifically from Andes.
I tested several cuisines through my travels to Asia, Europe and America but I keep very tasteful souvenirs of the Moroccan cuisine which I think is a unique work of centuries of tradition and rich of the diversities that the Moroccan culture is known for.
The French absolutely adore moroccan cuisine, for a reason, it's one of the best! So why it isn't as popular as the others? Well, their dishes require a lot of work, we're speaking 2hr per dish! Only moroccan women could do that, but once you try some, you'll come back for more, garanteed!
Lebanese food is amazing. This is coming from an American.
Like humus? You betcha.
Like cheese pizza but without sauce? Got it.
Like Falafel? They have that too.
You probably never tried these, and more counting, but once you try it and be free, you will never leave again. If you are looking for a store in America, try Oasis, they have some Arabic/Lebanese food that will blow your mind!
And I also find it funny, that a lot of newcomers, aka Americans, try like a humus, or a burrito. Closest they can get to American food. Kind of disappointing, but oh well, their choice. JUST TRY THE FOOD!
Given it is very vegetarian based with little usage of oil, and when needed, it is olive oil in place, given it replaces strong spices with natural aromas (somak, lemon, olives, rose water, nuts, thyme...), and given its large variety that keeps you attending a Lebanese restaurant without a brake more than any other restaurant, I would vote Lebanese cuisine to be #1.
Turkish would go #2. Why after lebanese? Main reasons: (1) lots of fats in meat and grill and (2) less rich in meza offerings. (3) Yes they got Rakis, but Lebanese not only they got the original Arak but a great choice of wines too.
I'm Lebanese and we have all kinds of restaurants (American fast food, Italian restaurants, Mexican restaurants such as Chili's, Sushi restaurants, french steak palaces...). I have tried them all and even though every country has something special about their food, Lebanese cuisine is my favorite. There's a combination of variety, texture, taste, authenticity and healthiness that you just don't find in other countries. A must try for anyone who hasn't tried it yet.
The best. Did you know the us sells fake orange juice to consumers. When they say 100% orange juice, it's a lie, they take out oxygen from the orange, which removes ALL flavor. Then comes in artificial flavor, which they don't have to label as an ingredient. Also, their steak is mostly other prices of steak glued together. Also, 90% of American coffee contains twigs, and dirt.
They make fries like I've never tasted before! Just, wow! They have a lot of similar restaurants like everywhere else in Europe, but it's usually very clean and people are friendly (contrary to places I've been in France or the Netherlands).
And! Belgian waffles! How can such a little country make such a genius snack? Also I love the chocolate and the "pralines". You think Swiss makes the best chocolate? Guess again, it's Belgium!
The chocolate and the waffles in Belgium are amazing!
Belgium should be way higher on the list because of the French fries (BELGIAN FRIES)! The food that everybody loves!
And plus the beers! The country with most brands of beers in the world!
I am Belgium and about French fries, nobody really knows, so let's say they are both French and Belgium.
By the way, everybody say that pasta are Italian, in fact not they are Chinese, that's a real fact.
They have many star restaurants for just a little country plus the french kitchen is the best in the world belgian also has the french kitchen grade
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.

Turkish food is one of the world's largest cusine and it tastes incredibly delicious. The climate and nature creates this diversity in turkish kitchen. Every region has their own traditional meals. And actually it is much more than what you can even read on wikipedia. To learn and taste real turkish food, you should have a trip to Turkey and from north to south, from west to east, you should have breaks in traditional restaurants. Turkish people have a great taste of food and their hospitality makes the food much more attractive. Once you taste turkish food, I guarantee that you will be biggest fan of turkish food. It is very healty and rich. Just the sad thing is that its neighbour countries are stealing some of the food and introduce as it belongs to their kitchen. Turkey should do more commercial for their delicious food! Definitely! They deserve to be the best kitchen on the world!
Som lor kor ko is a mix of veggies in soup that make Khmer Food taste very traditional and capture represent of this country. My favorite is Ah muk Trey. It is hard to find it in anywhere besides this country. Thumbs up.
Just really great food. And most are made with healthy ingredients. They can make vegetables absolutely delicious
Cambodian food is fresh and they use a lot fresh fruit in desserts. Quite awesome!
Eating spiders? that's hideous.

Taiwan can compete for the best food in the world. For me it is second after Italian (I'm Italian). I spent a month in Taiwan and I tasted more than one hundred kinds of food that where new for me. Taiwan has the best of the Chinese tradition, mixed with some of the best from Japan (the island has been a colony of Japan for 50 years), and mixed with their local unique culture. You can try ten different dishes in a meal, if you go to noght market. Dish number one for me is their dumplings, but they are also great in fish dishes, sushi, hot pot, fried fish. What is amazing is the variety of foods especially of street food and affordable dishes. If you travel in Taiwan you do not need a lot of money to try their bests. The only dish I cannot stand is "stinky tofu" because it relly stinks :-)
Absolutely the best food on Earth. Everywhere you go, you can get cheap, flavorful food. Even the smallest food stand in a small alley can lead to a palette-tingling experience. The food, though originated from China, contains flavors from Japan, Korea, as well as European nations like Netherlands, and Spain. The diverse culture and people on the island symbolizes the eclectic influences and unique creations that are found solely in Taiwanese food.
Best food, high quality and hygienic even in night markets, good fusion cuisine with high quality local ingredients, its Chinese food is also the best I can find so far in the world unlike those chemical and greasy dishes in China, I recommend to try it in Taiwan, you won't regret it.
Lots of varieties, blend of all regions of China, as well as some Southeast Asian, Japanese, and western influences. All these make an unique outstanding Taiwanese cuisine culture. While outstanding, the price is very inexpensive. You can have a huge feast and leave the country without going bankrupt.
The best use of spices in the Western world. Plus the salted Call of Duty dishes are simply a national treasure, there are thousands of them, and they all from good to great. Then you come to deserts, the Pastel de Belem, Ovos Moles, and lots of other fresh and complex delicacies will make you salivate from just thinking of them, let alone see, smell and then taste one of them!
Wine-wise, it's hard to beat a country where you can buy a bottle of decent wine for 1 Euro, and if you wish you can also have a sip ot the timeless Port and Madeira! There's a reason why Shakespeare would make characters sell their soul to the Devil for just a sip of these nectars, and why the drafting of the US constitutiuon was celebrated with copious amounts of them!
Grilled chicken with Peri Peri sauce, second to none, excellent options for people that have had recent cardiac/heart surgeries. Rice with chillies, great for getting lots of different vitamins with raw vegetable salads, and to prevent common colds via drinking water when you know that you are having the first phase of common cold symptoms.
Portuguese food is one of the most tasty food in the entire world. The chefs are incredibly talented and make add so much variety on their that it's hard to choose which food is better, and they're so underrated. How come chinese, english, american and spanish food be better than the portuguese one? Portuguese food really deserves a top 5 spot.
Probably influenced most of the countries in the world. These, somewhere around 1500 jumped on what now you'd consider a raft with a sheet for a sail, and went around the world discovering India and Brazil. About the food, well... You have to try it, and I bet you'll never want to try anything else in fear of disappointment...
Iran has so many delicious and tasty food with different spices and old history. There are so many different kinds of food that people love them so much. I love Iranian food, they are so tasty and delicious. There are so many different kinds of them that each of them is more delicious than the other. In Iranian foods, you can find so many different salads and seafoods and almost all of the food has red or white meat and they smell so good, you want to eat all of the food and the kebabs are the best and the Iranian food is so healthy that won't make you sick.
Iranian food should be well known to those who rarely visit Iran. Why are the people go there to try when housewives never have the experience preparing Iranian food at home?
There needs to find better ways to help housewives in various countries around the world how to cook and prepare Iranian food, especially during meals. Time to roll up their sleeves, ladies at home.
The variety of food in Iran is enormous. Many soups with vegetables, herbs, beans and legumes, meat, dairies. These soups are so rich that can be a full dish. kababs, Best and healthiest prepared rice in the world, Pastry of unique taste. Ice cream and several summer drinks. Fish and sea food, Stews. A lot of traditional vegetarian and vegan foods, etc...
Only the back ward terror regime has closed that beautiful country for the world.
This site is just being racist. Iranian food dare I say it has the most variety in its food between any other. (Expect Italian) you can find all sorts of food from the ones that are made with rice to the 3kg meat kebab. But I think the reason it's so low is that:
1. It's very difficult to prepare.
2. It can be very expensive.
3. The flavors might not suit most people's taste.
But that's just my personal opinion.
PS, if you haven't tried it, I recommend you to.
