Countries With the Worst Food
No no NO! No WAY is the United Kingdom. The local produce is incredible and we don't rely on other countries to influence our food. *takes long look at America*. Buy saying this, I don't mean that we can't offer anything but English food. In fact, I have expirienced MULTIPLE cultures here but none of them have been manipulated into a junk food version such as Dominos. Bye the way-I am NOT trying to offend American food. I do love most of it. I just hate how stereotyped English food is as boring and tea related. I mean, look at Gordon Ramsay. I'm not saying that every restaurant chef in the country is that level. But, just saying...
There are comments here that are ridiculous. There's absolutely nothing wrong with British food. It's far and away better than American chow. Maybe Americans prefer to eat junk food.
I've eaten the most divine Indian cuisine in London, cooked to perfection, and there are excellent chefs in the UK, too numerous to mention here.
This has got to be a joke. Some of the best meat and fish in the world. If you're rating the food by the average restaurant, you're going to be very very disappointed. Fortunately, there has been a big awakening to home-cooked food in the last few years! We do fantastic pies, stews, puddings (desserts), pastries and cheeses. Remember, we didn't even have a potato until the 16th century, let alone a tomato. We basically lived on turnips, oats, grains, and whatever fruit and veg would grow in this pretty harsh climate. I think to put Britain as the worst in the world is totally unfair and extremely ignorant.
I think America should be number 1 that is the country of Fast food. We have better chocolate than America.
How about a cooking book? or
I've had spotted dick its ok.
Crumpets are ok, when I was little I always wanted one I used to play with them.
Cooked Breakfast is good and Sunday Dinner.
You don't like Shepherd's/Cottage Pie? How about the Veggie version Quorn. Had that loads of time and the meat.
You don't like stew, well I hated it when I was a kid, same for beans.
You don't like the fish and chip shop what?
I like cheese and cucumber sandwiches but I don't eat them as much I should really for diets.
I don't call Greggs a Chav's place I have had sausage rolls its ok.
But the problem we have is hidden salts and sugar, we do not need them in the food.
Just put salt and sugar in the food that needs it in the recipe stop obesity.
British food is haute cuisine compared to American. There are some wonderful restaurants in the UK with many ethnic choices - the Indian cuisine there is to die for. American food is mostly greasy, fatty, with masses of junk food and the portions are huge.
American food is either a worst rip off of great food found in more successful nations or is sugary or greasy drug. American food is just a way to make people fat and is a guaranteed way to kill you before you’re a senior. Honestly, America hasn’t got a single food in their country which is healthy or original. Did I mention that American food is disgusting, it’s usually just fried grease or a mountain of sugar.
I went to New York and ordered a small breakfast, and it was horrible, everything was deep-fried, too big and fatty and just didn't taste natural. I enjoyed the Philadelphia cheese steaks there, but America is also known for loads of horrible overly fatty meals and combination meals like bacon doughnuts and Kentucky-fried cheeseburgers, that sort of rubbish. They lead the world in crappy fast food and over-sized indulgent desserts, plus the candy and chocolate is just god-awful. British chocolate is heaven, but American chocolate tastes worse than Kinder egg chocolate, and that's saying something (Kinder eggs suck).
The United States of America is not known for food outside of the US, much less healthy food. I know that I am a traitor for voting for this (I live in the San Jose / San Francisco area), but American food (at least this holds true anywhere north of the 38th latitude line) is just salt, sugar, and overweight.
People at my school, even those who do their homework, only want to eat hamburgers, hot dogs, and americanized pizza (pizza is supposed to be Greek). They seem to ignore anything else the school serves. On the plus side, though, it leaves more for me.
In the middle of the US, like in Wyoming, South Dakota, and Indiana, people go to Taco Bell, and pretend that they ate at the United Nations. Like Rick Steves has told us to do, we should expand our minds a little this next decade. The US is only 5% of the world. We can learn to consider and accept the other 95%.
Italian are really poor considering food, only made with flour and water and you have a pizza and you have pasta. You add disgusting tomato concentrate and you have a full pizza margarita and bolognese. WAOOOHHH... So low level. And what else in this country, nothing. When you back from there you just need to quickly eat at least 23 Burgers.. (They do not have burgers, mad people..). Even in the rest of Europe you find Burgers and lots of other dishes.
Italian cuisine is poor, except always the same pizza and pasta, what else?
In Italy, it's impossible to find a good piece of beef, a good fish (they have always the same 2 or 3 fish from Mediterranean sea), they do not know what is a lobster or other seafood, they do not know how to cook rice, Turkey, cereals and a lot more.
No, Italy is definitely not the best place for food. For Italian food, maybe, and even... But for having fun with lots of various dishes is not the place to go. Better even staying in America where we are able to offer a wider range of different international food.
So for that reason and so many more, Italy is overrated and must be number 1 for country with worst food.

Italy is definitely not the best place for food.
I was in the Peace Corps in the former Soviet Union. Unfortunately the cold climate makes fresh food impossible most of the year. Plus, lack of spices doesn't help.
Greasy, fatty, boiled foods. I was very unimpressed with my time there during the Olympics, which was supposed to be in an area designed for tourists.
They live in some pretty brutal conditions... It's like Irish food but with worse meat.
I hate caviar so much. They're basically endangering the Caspian Sea sturgeon, one of the largest freshwater fish.
Honestly, I think Din Tai Fung is the best chain of Chinese restaurants. It's a Taiwanese chain, and it's so good, that they established some of them in China, Japan, South Korea, most of Southeast Asia, even in the United States. Try the dumplings and you will be in heaven soon.
I live in China, but I am not Chinese (vote for Portugal as the best country for food), an I can tell you that Chinese food as the only great thing about this country. By the way, dog, is good food, and yes, we can find it... but it is not your neighbors pooch, they are raised for food. Just last week, I was in Guizhou and with my lunch rice noodles dog was an option. Don't be a prude, if you like Betsy the cow for a burger, then dog is fair game also. Also, we hardly would choose dog, foreign or Chinese... food is really good here.
I wonder how many of those who are criticizing Chinese cuisine have actually ever tried it in the P.R.C., Hong Kong, Taiwan, or even Singapore, as opposed to the fake variety served pretty much everywhere else.
The worst cuisine in all of Asia, by far, is Filipino 'cuisine' and why they're not on this list instead is most likely because you don't find many Filipino restaurants outside of the Philippines. Gee, I wonder why?
Chinese cuisine and recipes are good, but food in china is dirty and chemical, so many people died because of eating in China...one of my friend went to emergency room and spent 2 nights in the hospital while visiting China/after having food there, please beware of the food there...
I live here most of the year and am a total foodie... Ukraine food is terrible! They don't know how to spice foods. The meat sucks, the chicken is injected, beef is like leather, absolutely no marbling, pork taste is even garbage. Breakfast meats, forget it! Some egg yolks are even the ugly color of their flag!
Ukrainian foods are as good as Italian foods. You're just jealous that Ukraine has better food than your home country.
Dude I tried to eat three different dishes from Ukraine and I gagged on every bite
So true...! They literally eat Vodka Dishes for breakfast I just looked it up!
Everything is potatoes. The pancakes are made from potatoes, their pasta is made from potatoes, potato wine, potato candy. The sweetest fruits they have are actually just painted potatoes. If you purchase meat it is actually potato fed potatoes. The cars run on potatoes. They even insulate their houses with potatoes.
Worst food ever. All the Eastern European countries have crappy food and so does United Kingdom. I like American, Tex-Mex, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and German food.
Given what I've seen of Polish food, it's lackluster. Supermarkets in the UK don't stock much of it in the World Foods section for a reason.
Real well made Polish food is yummy. It's not very elegant, but very rich and tasty. Pirogs, onion soups, beef stews... It's not for everyone I admit!
Nearly everything in the supermarkets, of which there is no variety between them, comes either wrapped in plastic or in a tin. Hard to get many food products, terrible lack of choice. Yet still, the highest prices in the world for supermarket food and restaurant food. Very German. Lots of pork, potato, bread, potato, bread, pork, potato without any interesting sauces/dips. Most people eat bread slices with processed ham/cheese and a slice of tomato or cucumber?!? Very poor quality fruit and vegetables. They rarely taste of anything. There is no breakfast culture, brunch, or dessert culture to speak of. The local beers are not very good and extremely expensive and also served in children's glasses?!? The national dish is "Grandiosa" which is a frozen pizza. Hot dogs are also very popular, along with kebabs and tacos.
Norway has the best foods in the world. They are far from bad. You don't know truly delicious food if you hate Norwegian foods.
Though Norway is right by the see it seems that the national dish is frozen pizza...
I've just read about the food in Norway.
If you visit Norway, take your own food.
Full of animal fat in tortillas, bread, beans, everything! Incredibly loaded with fat, so loaded it even sticks up on the roof of your mouth. Fat is what makes a dish have more flavor, but fat in excessive is disgusting, believe me. What's more? Ever wonder why people in Mexico have lots of digestive problems? They, trying to be cool and macho although they aren't lol, put pepper in literally everything. From cake to their own... Mexico has the worst food; no wonder they're all a bunch of fatases!
First of all, don't confuse southern food or mexican-american food with authentic mexican food. The first one is OK, but I got tired of it. I am disappointed about the second one, the authentic. I find it insipid and bland, perhaps that's why they soak them with sauces (salsas) and mostly with hot sauce. The idea is to taste the food, not to struggle with spicy peppers/sauce or try your manhood every time you eat. Sorry my fellow mexican friends.
I honestly hate Mexican food. I don't like tacos, quesadillas, or burritos. Whenever I go to a Mexican restaurant, I literally have to look through the menu for fifteen to twenty minutes before I decide... Usually I just get nachos. The food is really salty and they put cilantro in everything. I get sick on cilantro and I can't have it. I think Mexican food is way worse than the food from the U.S., UK, or Russia.
Mexican food is just unappetizing in appearance, taste, and texture. If all the Mexican food places were replaced with something good like Chinese, Japanese, or burger places, then the world would be a better place and happiness would rain from the sky... instead, we have to deal with bean fueled flatulence and spices that smell like nasty feet.
Bulgaria is one of the best places to visit for a good quality of food nature sexy women and cultural.. Not many people know stuff about this country.. But wow Google it, so many secrets.. The computer has been created from them (half Bulgarian and half American was it..) they have invented the cyrillic alphabet women there are HOT, if you go in the sea areas you'll see girls looking like American superstars I live in Bulgaria sor quite a while.. The food is only organic and their culture is so colourful.. So come visit..
It is a wonderful country, the weather is incredible and the beaches are gorgeous. However the food isn't, perhaps I was unlucky. In my time there I ate out 12 times. Each time I found the food heavy, stews galore - in the heat, it wasn't ideal. Nonetheless the deserts were good, lots of coconut ice cream! Please visit if you've never been there. Just not for the food!
We try to have a pizza party there in Bulgaria and the pizzas were so disgusting, because made by Bulgarians or some migrants... This country has really bad food, hopefully we returned home and eat good, because in Italy, we have the best food, the best culture and tradition and Italian girls know how to cook the food good.
Low quality food!
Remember, the people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.
Raise your hand if you have been to an Angolan restaurant.
To me, the fact that nobody is raising their hands is kind of a sign.
Very salty, overspiced food full of unhealthy ingredients.
Never once in my life eaten good Angolan food
IKEA definitely doesn't help Swedish food seem appealing to me. Never personally liked it.
Potatoes with everything and a cake made from white bread sandwiches.
Tasteless, utterly tasteless covered in really thick tasteless sauces.
I can really understand your opinions. Compared to Italian, French, Japanese, Indian and other food countries it doesn't stand a chance...For instance, garlic is not an ingredient in typically Swedish dishes and olive oil was unknown until the '60s. But it's also "acquired taste". It's exciting once you give it a try. As I am semi-Swedish I will guide you through some nice (and not so nice) Swedish food ;):
-potatoes. Yes as you have written here it's all about the potatoes. Sweden was a really poor country until the 20th century and potato provided c vitamin for very poor people.
- thick pea soup with mustard and dices of pork meat. As a tradition served on Thursdays with pancakes. If you're bold you'll have a small glass of Swedish punch which is array liquor. Crazy.
-porridge. They have it for breakfast and it's awful and grey.
-smorgasbord - now this is delicious! A wide range of salmon, sausages, herring, schnapps, smoked eel, ham...
-chantarelles. Golden mushrooms ...more
This is the worst and most unhealthy food you can imagine. It mainly consists of very low-quality meat (including bones, fat, skin and every unhealthy part of the animal). There is no specific taste at all. The main dish is rice (white, of course) and deep-fried chicken leftovers.
- They have a soup that's just sour.
- Beef dishes contain at least 70% fat and no true meat.
- Vegetarian dishes are not foreseen in Filipino cuisine. Even vegetables comes with (bad tasting) pieces of pork.
- The Philippines have a dramatically increasing rate of diabetes diseases. No wonder, if you eat white rice three times daily and a lot of over-sugared stuff.
- Too many people love Starbucks and you'll find Starbucks at EVERY corner in Manila. They buy the "drinks" that contain a lot of cream, overly sweet sauces and other ingredients. Even the so-called Pasta is extremely sweet.
- During conferences you will get a "snack" that consists of all-white and sweet sandwiches accompanied ...more
They are the country that eats chicken embryos, grossing me out the more I think about it. They also eat dog, cat, and monkey. The rest of the food like the seafood is better.
They totally have one of the most disgusting food ever, it is bland and disgusting, and never looked hygienic! I wonder why they even voted Filipino food in the top 10 best cuisine in the world, whether it's their complexity issue that makes them voted it themselves or what! Most of the food is mixed with vinegar so it smell bad, and many of the street food looks disgusting and inappropriate for human consumption (balut, deep fried chicks and their egg, fried inner parts). Also the food is very unhealthy for many since they do too much deep frying.
Almost all of the dishes are soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper, and tomato based if not grilled. Only a few other flavors, like tamarind, chili, peanut, or other common flavors, which are mostly unoriginal. Either Spanish, Chinese, Malay, or anything else influenced.
Most dishes are easy to cook and don't really require special skills in cooking to make. Mostly very basic.
Sweets are a different story. Don't really want to dwell on this type of dish.
I challenge Filipino chefs to be more innovative when it comes to making Filipino dishes. Avoid being gimmicky though.
Close to Croatia but not next to Croatia
Is this near Croatia because I love croatiq
Slovak food is ok
Their fried cheese is amazing and they have the best garlic soup
Haluski tastes nice but I don't like it because it gives me gas
Slovakia has one of the best cakes though :9
I'm not Indian but indian food is the absolute BEST. I love how they make the spices so good and how they work with the veggies. It's so delicious and I don't know how people hate it. And the sweets. SO GOOD. I can't even with the haters- Sarah
If Indian food is bad then what good food is there? It's the best thing I can get here other than fast food and fast food got boring reeeeal quick.
In India we have Adulterated milk containing urea, artificial ghee, poor quality vegetable oils, chemically treated fruits, vegetables and nuts. Even you can't drink tap water without purifier. Sewage water containing extreme amounts of industrial wastes and toxic substances is used for cultivation of crops. Yeah if you are eating anything in India (in a roadside shop or even in the five-star hotel), there is a huge chance it is poisonous.
Indian food isn't bad, its amazing! It is a very good country for spicy food lovers. But if u don't like spicy foods then there are also foods that aren't spicy. Don't be so ignorant!
I do not know who puts Haiti here, but certainly better food they have there than in Italy.
Haitian have a food culture from ages and from lots of diverse origins that makes their food among the best and certainly not among the worst.
People vote for what they know, and they know mainly Italian or Mexican food because they are fast-food but far from the real gastronomy and healthy or tasty food.
Very bad food. In my culinary school there were many Haitian students, and whenever they'd bring food they'd make at home, it would taste bland and wack. Worse than Cuban food.
If you don't know Haitian food, so why voting for?
Haiti offered food depending of its poverty, and for that I've eaten more good in Haiti that in some known food countries which are spreading their industrial food in the whole world.
Haitian people are know to eating bizarre and disgusting food
The empanadas are by far the worst I've tried. Bolivian empanadas are #1. Buenos Aires empanadas are good too.
Its not about flavour, it's an etnicity arrangement problem. They are nicely great in other things
The person who said something about Bolivia is right
Same with this country, what do they eat?
As a whole Australian food is basically watered down Yank and Pom fare, and never healthier or more flavourful despite what ignorant sour grape aussies says. Ethnic options? Overwhelming dishes with rice/noodles to drive down the costs and flavour of all dishes is a common tactic with asian takeaway here; and the prices for something better is prohibitive. Not something I experienced in California. Indian food in Australia is okay given, but again, overpriced to the nines.
That being said, the supermarkets are extremely cheap, Australia is just not a dining out country. Learn to cook and cope and you will be fine.
I disagree with everyone HERE! our snags that are cooked to perfection are the best tasting sausages in the world. Just ask your local bunnings. They'll cook u up a feast. VB quite debatable on the other hand, however a true decider of bloody Australian. Also meat pies are the bomb
Wait we have lots of different foods and all u have in America is crappy sweets and burgers we have sushi and sausages and potato and Thai and MacDonald should I go on?
Food is very boring here. Similar to bland British food. Pub food is also a disgrace. The only thing that Australia has that is amazing is Tim tams and pavlova
We have the best food in Europe, but people prefer food from South, why? That it's a something we cannot explain even not the involved people themselves.
Lacking in flavours, nutrition and presentation. The food here is only good for a drunken or stoned stag do...
Not the most famous but the offer in Netherlands is definitively larger than in Italy.
They don't have an authentic national cuisine. It's all about herring, potatoes and stroopwaffel and that's all.
Pakistan has the worst food. Actually they try to copy the indian food in a cheaper way. And that's what spoils the taste. Also, they don't have diversity, whatever items you see in their menu is taken from Indian cusine, However their sweet dishes are faboulous. Pakistan has no real cusine of its own, but it is a mixture of Indian and Persian cusine.
I really don’t like Pakistani food. When I was a child living in the UK, my parents would promise me that we would go to Pizza Hut if I had good marks. And when I DID get good marks, my parents would say, “Eh, pizza is disgusting, let’s go to Taste Of Pakistan instead” I DESPISED Taste Of Pakistan. It was a restaurant in Hounslow where they sold Pakistani food. I hated Pakistani food. One time I even found a bug in my boti. Oh, and by the way, Pakistani food is similar to Indian food - IceBearRules
Pakistan is a curry loving nation, its true curry and not out of a packet. It all depends where you eat. #lovecurry
It's true Pakistani food is the best ever and I love Pakistan
Very spicy, undigestable foods. I once ate that Shin Ramen and it was extremely spicy, even spicier than Hot Cheetos and Indian curries. So spicy that I couldn't finish and had to eat a whole popsicle instead. Horrible noodles! I would rather eat Italian spaghetti instead because it is tastier, more tolerable, and less spicy and I am Indian and more used to Italian and Mexican foods. Those foods are much tastier and more tolerable than those Asian(Chinese, Japanese, Korean, but not Indian, b/c India, too, is part of Asia) foods. I would rather eat bland food than spicy food. HORRIBLE FOOD! CAN'T STAND IT!
Boiled water with one piece of lettuce and one piece of meat. Really? Where did you even go? And who said that Korea sucks? Who is the leader of the United Nations? Who invented Samsung? A Korean person! Plus, not our fault you can't handle spicy foods. We like what we like.
Shin Ramen is not a proper food! That's like saying you hate American food because you ate potato chips! And what does eating with stainless steel chopsticks have to do with the food? Alright, did you TRY the kimchi pancakes?
Most cooked food are red in color (red pepper powder) and have garlic in it and they all taste the same and they eat with a stainless steel chopsticks.
I had the misfortune of living with two Hungarian roommates who were always cooking their traditional food. It was so heavy and weird-tasting but also bland, and they put ingredients together that shouldn't go together. Normally I'm a very adventurous eater, not picky at all, but I couldn't force myself to eat their food. And it smelled awful.
Disgusting food, like the people there, we were obliged to go there for business, never again.
This is about food. Don't insult the people.
Guys it looks like hungry
Just ughhh. Lived there for 5 years and realized quickly it's either so-so food at the more expensive places (which don't really serve authentic Peruvian food but something borrowed or stolen from other cuisines) or take your chances eating at the crappy hole-in-the-walls available at every corner... where the food really is "authentic". Nothing special, actually mostly horrible.
To start with Perú is ahole, second they have zero knowledge of food manipulation, they don't even wash their hands after going to the bathroom. If they didn't have a huge Japanese influence they'll be still eating crap.
Besides that, they're the most resentful nation in Latin America
Wow first of all peru has very good food whp ever wrote this is an idiot
Who put this here
Serbian food is fresh, delicious and hearty. And if you eat it homemade it's 99% that the food will be prepared by a clean person.
Serbian food is always tasty and never went in a dirty Serbian house so I guess the food must be clean too.
Nothing but russian food
Argentina has some really good food!
Nothing but spanish food
