Countries With the Worst FoodInception
The Top Ten
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.
I'm from the uk and food is actually good. No unhealthy trans-fats at least. And fyi I've been to the states and those people are massive in comparison to people in the uk. Every country has its fatties but americans take the biscuit, literally.
Actually Mexico is fatter now. Trans fats are banned in the USA. I don't know where you visited but clearly you didn't visit the whole country.
Most of the food are extremely bland and yet the prices are ridiculously high. Can't believe this standard of food exist in a first world country. The locals here seem to be satisfied with mediocre quality food, perhaps they are not aware that there are much better food outside of this country.V 159 Comments
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! - llamabaconllama37
Man vs food! Love USA but the food look so bad!
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.

Here in Switzerland we have lots of Italians who immigrated with us for the last 150 years.
Each year and that for generations most of them, and by entire families are returning back to their own country (Italy). That shows how much they are not integrated and how much they do not want to really stayed in Switzerland. Those people do not give any added value to our country. They just refuse to be pure Swiss.
And we guess that this stupid and arrogant way to do is not only visible in Switzerland but also in major countries where they have migrated all along the ages.
So they just come with their food pizza and pasta, eat just that and never try to tend to be Swiss.
Most of other migrants from Asia, Africa and South-America for example are much more respectable people and therefore much to be respected.
And Italians will never accept in their own country someone doing the same as they are doing.
For this reason Italians are very racist, in ...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". - DaisyandRosalina
Seriously?!?!?! Italy is the worst?!?!?! No way. Italy is delicious! PIZZA PIZZA ITALY ITALY #PIZZA FOR THE WINV 77 Comments
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.

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. - anonymus12121414
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?
Who put this on the list? As a Chinese myself, I grew up eating Chinese food, and it's always delicious, even though it can be greasy sometimes. Also WE DO NOT EAT DOGS! >:(V 101 Comments
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! - millsl
Dude I tried to eat three different dishes from Ukraine and I gagged on every bite

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...
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! - ChatonNoir
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.

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!
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? )
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.
Take mush that looks like baby crap, add beans, peppers for heat, put it on some sort of tortilla and you get Mexican food.
That doesn't even come close to what it's like on the way out the other end.
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..

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.
I kind of want to try Angolan food now
Never once in my life eaten good Angolan food
Potatoes with everything and a cake made from white bread sandwiches.
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.

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
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..
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.
No wayi, I don't know how indian and italian got low rate.(i am in shock)i like indian food so much just maybe bkz of spices it wont be good for some people.(u can ask your restaurant to add less spices in your food) - anna1991V 102 Comments

In Australia, we don't have our own taste to food. But have have a lot of Thai, Indian, Japanese and Mexican restaurants
Nah it's food is good
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?
All that stuff you mentioned we have here in the US, and much more than just "crappy sweets". Have you ever been here? - Johnnyt800
I’m Australian and I have to say that food here isn’t bad, it just isn’t unique. A lot of our food originates from other countries and there isn’t a lot originating specifically from Australia.V 2 Comments
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.
Dry Bread Bread Bread...V 8 Comments
The food here should be good, but the choose processed /refined foods like white rice. They add white sugar to fruit juice. Cartilage features in many of their dishes. Dunkin Donuts outlets are everywhere.
It's because white rice is the cheapest type of rice here.. We can't afford the others which is healthy and more delicious because it's expensive.. Same as white sugar... I don't add sugar if the juice is already sweet...
About dunkin donuts.. I don't eat dunkin donuts that much because it's too sweet.. I'm afraid of diabetes...
Hope this will help you understand the situation here.. Good day and god bless
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.
Excuse me! Our food is not horrible! At least it is original! And it's exotic and has complex favors. And the rice based desserts ar the best desserts EVER!
Besides, you Foreigners probably haven't even tasted our food. Try sisig or bicol express...
Certainly better than that circle bread thing called a pizza. - N3GAT1V3
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.

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?
Korean food can be a hit or miss. Sometimes Korean food can be as little as water with a piece of lettuce or it can be a soup with lots of meat and vegetables and spices. - TopTenHaters

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.
What This shouldn't be on here! If you are reading this, do some research on Hungary, it is AMAZING

Canada is stereotyped to have only maple syrup, (which we DO have a lot of) but Canada's main cuisine doesn't really exist. It's just a combination of all sorts of cuisine around the world, which is what makes it so special!
Canadian food is the best type of food. It's even better when you put maple syrup in the snow
Canadian food actually is delicious we have maple syrup taffy and Tim Hortons.
Canada doesn’t really have any exclusive foods, most of their cuisine is inspired by American and European food. - TopTenHatersV 6 Comments
Brazilian people don't understand that food is much more than just rice and beans. It's borring, monotonous and bland. Yet they take pride in it and they believe to have the best food on the planet. The average Brazilian BBQ that they prepare in their own houses is totally different to the typical Brazilian Steak House that you might see in Miami or Dallas. Their BBQ sucks, they oversalt the meat, they overcook it, they cut it up in small pieces (therefore it gets cold and dry) and you rarely have side veggies or salads like they have in Uruguay and Argentina, those two countries instead are the true masters in BBQ. Brazilian bread and pastries are horrible too. The only good good is regional authentic comida mineira such as oxtail stew, chicken with ocra, etc. But in general their food is horrible and monotonous.
Brazilian people eat rice and beans everyday, but no one ever knew what rice or beans taste like. Nobody in Brazil know any taste beside garlic and onion. If you swap a dish of Brazilian food with a bunch of paper with lots of garlic, nobody would notice it.
People who are talking about Brazilian food know absolutely nothing. I've lived for 5 year in the United States and I never had worst food in my entire life, I even lost 20kg while living there. Brazilian food may be monotonous, but it's healthy. Brazilian barbecue is amazing, and we do eat it with vegetables, salad, farofa and other stuff.
Brazilian food honestly tastes bland other than their BBQ. But if it’s not BBQ, then it’s rice and beans and trust me that gets old after a couple times. - TopTenHaters

I've been to Ireland and I can't say that the food was horrible. Every pub I ate at was terrific. I was there ten days and I never ate more than one meal at the same place. I went all over the country, too. All good food from where I ate. - BKAllmighty
I'm very happy that Sri Lanka, Mongolia, North Korea and The Vatican all rank as worse food than Irish cuisine. I only hope that no one from the aforementioned countries ever visits here and finds out the truth
Irish food quality is great but our national dishes involve boiling the flavour out of everything, Irish stew bacon and cabbeg nothing too groundbreaking or different. however we have excellent quality of dairy produce and meat
It's bland and not very tasty. Then again, Ireland has so much else to be proud of. A wonderful country, great beer, sympathetic people! - ChatonNoirV 2 Comments

My Ethiopian neighbors fry pickled fish with beer and it stinks up the entire street.
Very little calories and no flavor, kind of hard to see too. It's almost like food in Ethiopia doesn't exist
Ok people are sleeping on Ehtiopian food. It is absolutely incredible. The spongy bread, the amount of sauces, and the novelty of never having to use silverware is fantastic. This is some of my favorite food in the world, up there with Indian, Iranian, Levantine and Turkish food.V 5 Comments
Hi from New Zealand! I grew up eating English style mashed potatoes, two veg and meat. Mum made more interesting food later on as I grew up. Home grown veg is best. Croc pot my favorite. Give thanks to God for our daily food. Amen
Food is pretty ordinary, Lamb and dairy is pretty good but food in US, Canada and Australia is a lot better.

To everyone who insults Japan: Half of you guys are probably Americans. Americans are the people who only have 2 tastes, Sweet and Salty. They are also the people who like to insult other countries and are only interested in McDonalds, Pizza and supermarket cupcakes. Just because you guys either don't like or haven't tried sushi or other Japanese food, please don't just sling insults. please be more like most Asians. At least we have are more open to the world.
