Countries With the Worst Food

The Top Ten

United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is ...read more.

This is pretty stereotypical but people say that British food are one of the worst in the world. Considering that stereotypes are based off of facts that used to be true, I would say that British food isn't the best.

The dishes themselves are incredibly bland, with very little diversity in the spices that are applied. The ingredients are horrendous in quality. And worst of all, pubs and restaurants seem to hire the most mediocre cooks. All of this probably comes from the fact that people in Britain rarely complain about anything, including food, which naturally results in a gastronomically underdeveloped culture.

From the fast food, to the restaurants, to the stores. Everything is processed to oblivion and bland, the only things that add flavour to our cuisine are fat and salt.

Even with home cooking, it's really difficult to find decent ingredients. If it's not rancid, it's bland. If it's not rancid and/or bland, it's probably going to cause various forms of cancer. The meats are sub-par; most everything in our stores is just bits of random animals glued together by mentally challenged 5 year-olds. The vegetables turn rotten after 2-3 days, the herbs/spices come almost solely in dried form and lacking in variety, and if you want anything even remotely resembling quality food, you're going to be remortgaging your house in order to pay for it.

2 redeeming things about our cuisine:
Portion sizes.
Cheese.

There is a reason why English food tastes bad 1* there food is really bland 2* they know nothing about spice and 3* they replicate foods from other countries

United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

Americans don't know the REAL taste of food. All they know is the taste of sugar and salt. They are killing the actual taste of food.

Obviously coming from someone who has never traveled there and had real southern cooking!

Man vs food! Love USA but the food look so bad!

Full of fat, sugar and salt and massive servings everywhere you dine. No wonder there are many obese Americans.

When I holidayed there, everything tastes the same, fatty, cardboard crap. And the Bacon? What the hell? Why is it paper thin? Why is the cheese orange? Why is there no salt and vinegar chips? So many unanswered questions. I never went to the Mac Donalds, after reading the horror stories of the kids that died from e-coli/ salmonella poisoning from similar fast food over there. Worst first-world food ever.

No salt-and-vinegar chips? Did you ever ask for vinegar? The cheese is orange because that is how we communicate the flavor so customers know what to expect. Bright orange, mild. Dull orange, medium. Orangey-white, sharp. It's just a matter of taking time to learn the language. The bacon is thin because that way it doesn't get soggy. Did you even eat any? It's the best meat product ever.

Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. ...read more.

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 sea food, they do not know how to cook rice, Turkey, cereals and a lot more.

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.

It's the "Countries with worst food" not the "Countries without international restaurants".

What a load of ignorant comments. Italy has the BEST FOOD IN THE WORLD.

What a big joke is Italian food.

I've been there to work (difficult to work there with them..). Anyway, it is the country of no taste, the country of poor choice, the country of the NOWHERE FOOD.

Pizza right but American PIZZA.

Pasta right but China (or Asian) PASTA.

But Italy... Out of this game.

Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

To be honest, I always hated spice, it was disgusting and burned my mouth, so this shouldn't be on the list

They live in some pretty brutal conditions... It's like Irish food but with worse meat.

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.

Um... Fat with Fat

Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

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! Foo!

Don't know what eat there, maybe it's good, No?

So true...! They literally eat Vodka Dishes for breakfast I just looked it up!

Dude I tried to eat three different dishes from Ukraine and I gagged on every bite

China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, ...read more.

Chinese good is too good to be talked about...

LISTEN UP PEOPLE! First of all, I'm Chinese. Never in my life have I ever had a peice of dog meat in front of me waiting to be eaten okay! Second of all, I really really really hope that all of you guys who commented negatively know that there are two types of Chinese food. One is the real Chinese food where you would find cooked from a traditional Chinese family and the other type is where people serve Chinese food that has been changed to suit other peoples tastebuds. Third of all why are we so stereotypical and negative?

One thing is sometimes people over process the foods. Sometimes, just plain noodles with some soy sauce and vegetables are good enough for a meal If you hate the taste of it, blame yourself for not liking the vegetables or not having a cup of water to go along with the meal.

China, the country where people eat man's best friend, cats, and bats, that's how COVID-19 started in the first place.

Chinese food isn't horrible it's lovely. I just hate people saying this about different foods. What if you haven't already eaten some of the most wonderful dishes we have eaten?

Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. With a population of approximately ...read more.

This place has the best food in the world

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!

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.

Haters laugh out loud

Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

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 raley 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.

Though Norway is right by the see it seems that the national dish is frozen pizza...

I believed England is a bad place for food, untill I happened to travel through Norway.

Simply not a food country... you don't go there to eat...

Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

How is Mexican food the worst food in the world if Mexico ranked 1st place in gastronomy. Mexico has a lot of great flavors and it offers a lot of great dishes. Who ever posted that Mexican food is the worst they DO NOT know about food!

Almost everyone I know loves Mexican food but I don't. Every time I go to a Mexican restaurant I just get a burger and fries.

Only Mexicans can manage to make fatty dishes tasteless, offensive-smelling and gross looking all at once. Not only is Mexican food unimaginative (60% of the food can be described as some sort of pudding on top of a tortilla. You want it folded? You got a burrito, fried? You got a taco... Got the idea? ), it's also really really really bad for your health, (notice how Mexicans are the fattest nation in the world? )

From what I've tasted it's only miniscule variation of the same stuff. Always wrapped up in some way with cheese. Too much cheese. It's just dull.

Bulgaria Bulgaria, officially the Republic of Bulgaria, was established in 681 ad. and since then it never changed it's name, which makes it one of the oldest countries in Europe. Located in the Balkan Peninsula between Greece, Turkey, Romania, Serbia, Macedonia and Black Sea. The Capital of Bulgaria is Sofia, ...read more.

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!

To the 1st review: if you're going in Bulgaria you don't try the Chinese food or order pizzas you go and try the traditional Bulgarian dishes you dumb ass :D

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..

Low quality food!

The Contenders

Angola

Hello comrades!

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.

I kind of want to try Angolan food now

Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. ...read more.

Potatoes with everything and a cake made from white bread sandwiches.

I really can't understand how you guys can say that graved salmon, meatballs, cinnamon rolls, chocolate balls and salted liqourice is bland -.-

because I DOn't WANNA DIP MY PENIS IN CHOCOLATE AND EAT IT - a 9 year old, 2020.
But to be honest, graved salmon kinda made me throw up the first time I ate it.

Surstromming. Fermented herring that is the most foulsmelling food in the world.

Absolutely no flavour, terribly heavy, potatoes, potatoes, potatoes, meatball and sausages. Too much cream. No thanks.

Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

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

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 by ...more

I am a Filipino, born and raised in the Philippines. I am used to eating Filipino foods but I have to say that it isn't the best food. I would want Thai foods better than my own as most of our dishes are unhealthy as they are usually soy sauce, salt, fish and tomato sauce base foods. But I would choose Filipino foods over American Foods. I am living now in the US and I don't like its foods. Too much salt, too much sugar, meat are tasteless. I would always eat at Thai, Vietnamese or Korean Restaurants... just saying!

Tastes disgusting, spaghetti with banana ketchup (are you serious? ), everything dumped into a pot and made in a soup or stew (lazy? ), everything adobo (really nothing better? ), fried chicken (mum? ), gosh!

Slovakia

Close to Croatia but not next to Croatia

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

Is this near Croatia because I love croatiq

Haiti

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.

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.

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.

These people eat cakes cut with the dirt they walk upon.

India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. ...read more.

Are you kidding me!? I'm not Indian but I think Indian food is the best in the world! There are so many Indian food... What the... The one who said it's always the same is an idiot. Not all Indian food is too spicy. I just ate samosa and it's so yummy.. Not even spicy! Indian food is the best! I would go to India just to eat their food! You guys cleary don't know about Indian food!

Guys Indian Food is spicy because it contributes to 70% of worlds spice production.. when you grow spices in your homeland, why don't you use it for cooking.. moreover many spices are potentially healthy for you, most importantly their anti-cancer properties..
Furthermore what you eat in Europe or usa is not real Indian food.. real Indian food is rich in spices -sometimes hot.. be a Romanian while in rome and enjoy Indian food like as an Indian does..

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!

It has too many spices and stuff. People eat with their hands and the food is not even good.

Chile Chile, officially the Republic of Chile, is a South American country occupying a long, narrow strip of land between the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

I Hate its food

The person who said something about Bolivia is right

There isn't really any food there

Its not about flavour, it's an etnicity arrangement problem. They are nicely great in other things

Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

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.

Australia is just copy of British food with typical for Australians sloppy, laid back, a bit lazy attitude.

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

In Australia, we don't have our own taste to food. But have have a lot of Thai, Indian, Japanese and Mexican restaurants

Netherlands

Lacking in flavours, nutrition and presentation. The food here is only good for a drunken or stoned stag do...

The dutch are good at a lot of things, but food isn't one of them...

Not the most famous but the offer in Netherlands is definitively larger than in Italy.

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.

Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are ...read more.

Pakistan AND Indian FOOD IS SIMILAR BUT BOTH ARE FABULOUS AND COOKED WITH LOVE AND. PakistanI FOOD IS DERIVE FROM Indian FOOD, SO India IS ALSO BEST SELLER OF FOOD

Shouldn't be on this list

It's true Pakistani food is the best ever and I love Pakistan

Pakistani food is AWESOME and YUMMY!

South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

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?

My uncle once ever commented that Korean food only has one flavor, Kimchi flavor.

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.

Hungary Hungary is a sovereign state in Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east, Serbia to the south, Croatia to the southwest, Slovenia to the west, Austria to the northwest, and Ukraine to the northeast.

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.

But.. But... Hungarian Goulash... It's delicious!

This is about food. Don't insult the people.

Disgusting food, like the people there, we were obliged to go there for business, never again.

Peru Peru, officially the Republic of Peru, is a country in western South America, bordered by Colombia and Ecuador to north, Brazil to east, Bolivia to south-east, Chile to south and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Peru is mostly known for being where the Inca people originally came from. The capital of ...read more.

Wow first of all peru has very good food whp ever wrote this is an idiot

Who put this here

There's only pigeon

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.

Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans.

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

I love Serbia

Argentina Argentina, officially the Argentine Republic, is a federal republic located in southeastern South America.

Argentina has some really good food!

Nothing but spanish food

Great meat!
