The Top Ten
1 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. ...read more.

As a man who've lived in Japan and enjoyed the real Japanese food, I can say proudly that it is one of the best food in the world with rich history. It's less oily but you can eat a lot of vegetables, and its calories are really few so good for your diet too. Also go and search "beautiful Japanese food" on Google. I'm pretty sure you'll be amazed at how colourful and attractive they are... Promise! :D

If you think you can eat only raw sushi and vegetables at Japanese restaurant, you've been to the wrong one for sure... Aw poor you :( The real ones are made with so much cares and take a long time to cook. Seriously, be careful to the ones that are ran by non-Japanese people with no previous working experience at restaurant in Japan at all... It's totally different from the original... eww disgusting... (even if the restaurant people looks like Asian, they may not be from Japan but like Korea or China... I know it's hard to tell.. )

Raw fishes and eggs? It' s not a big deal if you' re in Japan. Healthy food and life style are the reason why Japanese have the highest life span in the world.

As much as I like French and Mexican food, I got to say that Japanese (which yes, I do adore too) is amazing. Japanese, Chinese, and South Korean people do NOT eat dogs. Out of the three cultures, Japanese is the best. sushi, dumplings, summer rolls, and more!

Its far from the tastiest (Non sweet seaweed "candy" anyone? ) and I do not like that green paste thing that is so popular all around the world.

But it is without a doubt that I can say that Japan has the most healthy food ever.

2 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. It is the world's most populous country, with a population of more than 1.4 billion. China spans five geographical time zones and borders 14 countries, the second most of any country in the world after Russia. Covering an area ...read more.

I must refute rumor about chinese food Chinese do not eat everything. Only some provinces have the custom of eating wild animals. Many Chinese people eat food, French and Japanese also eat it, but when they eat it, people don't think it's strange, on the contrary, they think it's elegant. Most Chinese don't eat dogs! the people who keep dog is much more than the peop who eat dog, Chinese food is not fast food, but American Chinese food is fast food, and can not taste the taste of Chinese food, very bad, so every time Chinese food is said to be cheap and unhealthy, I am not surprised.

I didn't eat chinese food but I know that they spoil it too much because of the bad stereotype of eating insects and wild animals. In reality, chinese cuisine is very rich and healthy

Chinese pasta (noodles) are healthy and good compared to such disgusting Italian pasta spread all over the world polluting our plates.

We invented what you call Pasta, more known as Noodles, and not at all Italy, they are just able to copy.

3 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories.

Butter you said? Yes, but not more than elsewhere, and surely better use butter than palm oil (used in all countries), worse than butter but without any vitamins.
And you should know that France has the highest level of veterinary and fraud controls in restaurants and food producers, for that reason each time there is a fraud, it's largely broadcast from the media as part of the transparency required by the public authorities. If a case is publicly known it's because of those controls, without any controls or because of corruption those cases are not known. In 2015 exactly 0 death related to food. So be tranquil, no matter at all, and if you find one please do not hesitate to contact our services.

Red wine and lots of vegetables are part of the diet.
Healthy food in term of quality and high level of controls.

In some part in North of France too much fat is used, that's true.
But things are changing from bad fat like palm oil to more excellent oil like canola (rapeseed) oil.
Lots of different rices, vegetables, fruits, fishes, meats and all that nicely cooked.
Each region has its different main own dishes.
And France is the country of bread and not only baguette but more than thousand of different breads, and also croissants, eclair, macron etc...

Health results also from pleasure of eating.

Base of French food are vegetables, rices, grain, fishes. Meat, sauces, fries are also part of French food but only eaten in certain occasions and only for a certain part of people. It's usual in France to eat for lunch only a large mixed salad and fruit for lunch and a vegetable soup, rice (or similar) and fruit for diner. They lot also lots of cereals like Americans (and from same US trade marks). Really good and healthy, the king for Atlantic fishes including the famous blue Lobster.

France has the highest level of veterinary and fraud controls in restaurants and food producers, for that reason each time there is a fraud, it's mediatically broadcast as part of the transparency required by the public authorities. If a case is publicly known it's because of those controls, without any controls or because of corruption those cases are not known. In 2015 exactly 0 death related to food.

Indian food is a well balanced food. The varieties and ingredients have been meticulously chosen over thousands of years for their flavor, nourishment, energy, health influence and taste and nutrient requirements and so on.

Indian is not only a Gourmet's delight but a good nutritionist's prescription.
It is a science by itself when it comes to a meal preparation, ingredients and accompaniments.

Indian food is well cooked with so many spices which are rich antibiotics and the usage of spices is only known by Indians. they have huge variety of spices which are added to daily food which makes the food digestive and delicious but nowadays in India mostly teens are addicted to fast foods (like Chinese noodles, manchurian) which are greesy foods.

Indian food is not healthy at all. Indians eat too much spicy food, too much mutton meat, too much ghee, and high sugar level food. India has one of the highest rate diabetes, high blood pressure, and coronary heart disease. Plus, India's life expectancy is merely 65 years old, on par with Russia.

It could probably be number one because of all the vegetables, spices and other ingredients they add to enhance the flavor of the food. The only thing is that there are a LOT of sweets and deep fried options which are extremely unhealthy.

Korean kimchi and other brewed food are very healthy. They have lots of vitamin and minerals and protein and everything, I assured you. They may be seen as a bit disgusting or unusual food to other countries and Western people, but it is scientifically proved that Korean food is tasty and good for your health.

Korean food history is more than three thousand years and it has developed into good, better ways. If you start eating Korean food, at first, you might feel gross and stuff, but if you keep eating, it will be quite addictive.
