Top 10 Countries with the Worst Food
I am an American. I have had a lot of British food, and most of it is not good at all. One of your puddings is made with pig's blood and a lot of salt. It is the most disgusting thing that I have ever had to eat. A lot of your foods are high in fat, just like in the US. Your full English is good, but it is over 1,000 calories, more than half the recommended calories for an average adult male.
Your cakes and desserts are packed with so much sugar, just like the rest of the world when it comes to that. If our food is worse than yours, then why do you have American fast food restaurants in your country? I love scones with my tea every now and again. Just to let you know, not every American eats fast food. I am one of them. I only eat it once in a while or when I have been shopping all day, and I only eat the chicken sandwiches unless I go to White Castle. Their burgers are made out of beans.
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 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 and 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.
Two redeeming things about our cuisine:
OMG, the land of oversugary, overprocessed, oversized, and oversalted foods. Their takeaways dominate the world, yet every country they're in has better food. The marketing hype convinces locals that Yank takeaway is worthwhile. So sad. Americans have decent food, but you have to search for it, and even then, it has too much corn syrup. Finding salads and vegetables is difficult, and their bread is like eating cake. It's amazing they are the richest country, yet they are the unhealthiest, and they throw away more food than most developing countries consume. Oh, and their chocolate is the worst on the planet, as it tastes like vomit due to their horrible milk.
I went to New York and ordered a small breakfast, and it was horrible. Everything was deep-fried, too big, 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).
Italy covers an area of 301,338 km². With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the third most populous EU member state. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, San Marino, and Vatican City. The... read more
Deep Dish Meat-Lover's Pizza, an Italian deep dish, means a thicker crust with more carbohydrates. Those "carbs" are the type of calories that enter your bloodstream more quickly than other energy sources, like protein or fat. Add sausage, meat, and cheese, and you get a calorie bomb with enough fat to help clog your arteries over time, and enough carbs to spike your blood sugar. That's not an ideal combo for good health.
Italian Stuffed Shells have three different kinds of fat-filled cheese, and giant shells of pasta for plenty of carbs. That's not a great start. If you want to treat yourself, look for low-fat ricotta cheese for the main filling, and likewise for the mozzarella and parmesan. After that, it's all about the portions. Drink plenty of water, and eat it with a generous serving of green salad so you don't overdo it.
Spaghetti Carbonara, an Italian dish, starts with a pile of carb-rich pasta. Then, you add four egg yolks, a cup of cheese, olive oil, and, if that's not enough calories and fat, half a pound of bacon. Some cooks even add a bit of cream for good measure! The result - no surprise - is delicious. It's OK as a treat, but the best way to make a healthy version of this dish is to eat something else.
The problem with Russian food is that Russians eat far too much sour cream and cram their mouths with canned meat and borscht! Russian food is gross and disgusting!
I used to eat far too many kinds of so-called 'Soviet Union' dishes, and I have nothing good or yummy to remember, except for sweets and candies when I was a kid. Come on, dishes like Shuba, Holodetz, and Siliodka? What's with these dishes having to swim in so much mayo?
And if I'm eating a jello, I would expect it to be for dessert and without chicken legs sticking out of it. I can think of worse, but that should do. I was lucky to be half Moldovan/Romanian because their food really is awesome. Or even luckier for me was moving to Israel when I was 5. There, I discovered Middle Eastern food, and I cannot think of a better cuisine than that.
I like the former Soviet cuisine, but Russian and Ukrainian food would be the most bland. Only Pelmeni, Stroganoff, Olivier Salad, and Blini are tolerable.
I live here most of the year and am a total foodie... Ukraine's 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, and pork taste is even garbage. Breakfast meats, forget it! Some egg yolks are even the ugly color of their flag!
Ukrainian and Russian cuisines are the blandest in the former Soviet Union. Only Chicken Kiev and Borscht are tolerable on the Ukrainian side.
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 the United Kingdom. I like American, Tex-Mex, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and German food.
Stodgy, tasteless, miserable portions, decomposing cabbage, tripe, frozen fries - what more is there to say...
Nearly everything in the supermarkets, of which there is no variety between them, comes either wrapped in plastic or in a tin. It's hard to get many food products, and there is a terrible lack of choice. Yet, there are still the highest prices in the world for supermarket and restaurant food. Very German. Lots of pork, potato, bread, potato, bread, pork, potato without any interesting sauces or dips. Most people eat bread slices with processed ham or 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 they are 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.
I have been to Oslo several times and asked locals where to try traditional Norwegian food, and nobody was able to guide me. Apparently, there were no traditional restaurants. Ultimately, we tried whale steak, but for sure it didn't worth the money. And they have something that looks like toffee cheese, but it is neither toffee nor cheese.
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, with stews galore - in the heat, it wasn't ideal. Nonetheless, the desserts were good, lots of coconut ice cream! Please visit if you've never been there. Just not for the food!
We tried to have a pizza party in Bulgaria, and the pizzas were so disgusting, made by Bulgarians or some migrants. This country has really bad food. Thankfully, we returned home and ate well because in Italy, we have the best food, the best culture and tradition, and Italian girls know how to cook food well.
I only like the noodles, but I don't really like all the other Chinese foods. Chinese food is really popular where I live. We have multiple Chinese restaurants like Panda Express, Ninja Bowl, etc. The taste is just not right for me, though. I like Italian food and American food. Why is Chinese food so popular? I don't know. It's weird that it's popular. I get that other people have different tastes and likes, just so you know.
Chinese cuisine and recipes are good, but food in China is dirty and contains chemicals. So many people have died because of eating in China. One of my friends went to the emergency room and spent two nights in the hospital while visiting China, after having food there. Please beware of the food there.
I am Italian, and Chinese food is bad. They say they have invented pasta, but this is not true. We Italians invented pasta, pizza, and they are the best food in the world. We have invented more than 70% of the things in the world. We are the best, China the worst.
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 with the second one, the authentic. I find it insipid and bland, perhaps that's why they soak it 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.
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.
Mexican food is full of animal fat - it's in tortillas, bread, beans, everything! It's incredibly loaded with fat, so much so that it sticks to the roof of your mouth. Fat does make a dish more flavorful, but excessive fat is disgusting, believe me. What's more? Ever wonder why many people in Mexico have digestive problems? They put pepper in literally everything, trying to be cool and macho. From cake to their own... Mexico has the worst food. No wonder they're all a bunch of fatasses!
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.
The absolute worst food ever. The only reason why Sweden's foods are considered "delicious" is because of all the attention Sweden is receiving. That's it. Norwegian foods taste way better than Swedish foods. Swedish foods are super disgusting.
Really? Norwegian foods are much more delicious than Swedish foods. The foods in Sweden are bland and tasteless. Not worth buying.
Swedish foods are easily the worst food ever. No other country comes close. The foods in Sweden are nothing but pure disgust.
The problem is not the quality or taste, but Indian food, for the most part, is very unhealthy with all the cream and fried stuff. No wonder diabetes and obesity are fast increasing. However, some sub-regional cuisines from the south are quite healthy.
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 a purifier. Sewage water containing extreme amounts of industrial wastes and toxic substances is used for the cultivation of crops. Yeah, if you are eating anything in India (in a roadside shop or even in a five-star hotel), there is a huge chance it is poisonous.
Listen, I like Indian food too. But what you realize when you're there is that all the food is the exact same thing. Also, the "everyone gets sick in India" thing is completely true. I got so sick there, and we had a guide whose job was to make sure we only ate at good places, that I had to be hospitalized back in the US. It's been 2 years and I still have problems because of it.
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 white rice 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 come 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 crisps.
- Once, I got a dessert that was canned fruits mixed with cheese cubes.
Very bad food. In my culinary school, there were many Haitian students, and whenever they'd bring food they made at home, it would taste bland and wack. Worse than Cuban food.
These people eat cakes cut with the dirt they walk upon.
Haitian people are known for eating bizarre and disgusting food.
The Dutch must stop dipping their food in the canals, and maybe then they can have good food once in a while. An uninspiring, bland mish-mash, a rotten barrel excuse of a "cuisine." Heavy quotes right there.
Dutch cuisine is a hybrid of German, British, and French, but not in a good way. They do produce some brilliant cheese.
Lacking in flavours, nutrition, and presentation. The food here is only good for a drunken or stoned stag do...
Australian food, as a whole, is basically a watered-down mix of American and British fare, and it's never healthier or more flavorful, despite what some Australians claim. Ethnic options? A common tactic in Asian takeaway here is overwhelming dishes with rice or noodles to reduce costs and flavor. And the prices for something better are prohibitive. This is not something I experienced in California. Indian food in Australia is okay, but again, it's overpriced.
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.
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 in food. But we have a lot of Thai, Indian, Japanese, and Mexican restaurants.
The empanadas are by far the worst I've tried. Bolivian empanadas are number one. Buenos Aires empanadas are good too.
It's not about flavour, it's an ethnicity arrangement problem. They are nicely great in other things.
I hate its food.
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 has the worst food. Actually, they try to copy 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 are taken from Indian cuisine. However, their sweet dishes are fabulous. Pakistan has no real cuisine of its own but is a mixture of Indian and Persian cuisine.
I had the misfortune of living with two Hungarian roommates who were always cooking their traditional food. It was so heavy and weird-tasting, yet 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.
Weird food and taste.
Disgusting country with disgusting food, little Russia with nothing of their own.
Just ugh. 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, Peru is a hole. 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'd still be eating crap. Besides that, they're the most resentful nation in Latin America.
Totally yuck. Umm... stew on top of French fries - brilliant.
Cold mashed potatoes over mayonnaise chicken and wow, it is stacked - brilliant!
Ceviche - umm... lime and salt on fish - yes, you definitely invented it...
Smelly egg whites over hard liquor - vomit - pisco sour (this is what happens when you drink this - get it, your piss-go-sour. Ha!
Very spicy, indigestible foods. I once ate Shin Ramen, and it was extremely spicy, even spicier than Hot Cheetos and Indian curries. It was so spicy that I couldn't finish it and had to eat a whole popsicle instead. The noodles were terrible! I would rather eat Italian spaghetti because it is tastier, more tolerable, and less spicy. As an Indian, I am more accustomed to Italian and Mexican foods, which are much tastier and more tolerable than Asian foods (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, but not Indian, as India is also part of Asia). I would prefer to eat bland food rather than spicy food. It's horrible food! I can't stand it!
Stayed in quarantine here, some of the worst food I've ever laid my eyes on. Tadpoles fried, served with raw pigeon eggs, and to top it off, a nice bowl of soup with a piece of Chinese cabbage in it. No creativity in Korean dishes whatsoever. A special needs koala might even be more creative. I forgot to mention the portion sizes… Enough to feed a 5-year-old kid maybe, and his stomach would still be rumbling after half an hour.
North Korea's population as of February 18th, 2017 is 25,360,273.

They don't have much food, but when they do, it's horrible. It was described by VICE as "matter."
They only have kimchi.
None of them are good.
