I've traveled a decent amount.

I would also go with America, due to the wide variety of authentic tasting dishes (just depends on where you go).

Fair enough but i dont think the traditional american style of food is the best.

Off the bat I would say Italy. Although I'm a huge fan of asian food.

France is decent, but it's mostly just pastry and cheese.. You can only have that many croissants until you get up in a rage kick over the table and shout GET ME SOME FUCKING MEAT BITCHES but yea they have some sick ass gourmet foods.

US for pure manly BBQ meats and burgers

Most of the foreign foods I've eaten are acquired tastes... Which means they taste like crap the first time you try it... So I'm going to have to go with American... Both for the variety, and for the fact that our own foods that are purely American usually don't necessitate the coaxing of your body to "learn" to like it.

I used to play Age of Empires for hours a day online. The people from Brazil seemed to be very elitist (in fact, I was the only "gringo" they let play with them). As much as the men from Brazil seemed to be douchebags, it has to be said that your women are freakin' hot. Whenever I get a chance I date women with Brazilian descent...there is not a stinker among them.

I think its same with Britain and quite a few other countries.

The UK is probably up there as well, but I am not sure that there are that many nations with a similarly diverse population - you can get Vietnamese, Italian or whatever in most countries, but how many have (widely available) Vietnamese or Italian restaurants of a high quality and run by people (natives) with a thorough knowledge of the "cuisine"?


Most of the foreign foods I've eaten are acquired tastes... Which means they taste like crap the first time you try it... So I'm going to have to go with American... Both for the variety, and for the fact that our own foods that are purely American usually don't necessitate the coaxing of your body to "learn" to like it.

Foreign foods? WTF; your food is foreign! - My answer was for "which countries is best for eating out", but if the question is "which national cuisine is best" - it sure *ain't* you! Also, how the fuck would you know if your food isn't an acquired taste, that you just happen to have acquired; please reflect.

And war is not a political activity? It is only in literature that the purpose of war is to kill more of the enemy than you lose, or to kill them all - in reality war is a matter of achieving some manner of perceived strategic objective, at a cost that is lower than the perceived value of the objective. I.e. you lost!

Gunther TheBlack
05-22-2008, 20:02
Asian and especially chinese food is crap.

Why? They add shitloads of sugar and taste amplifiers to their food.


Anyway it depends on what kind of food you like.

For pasta's Italy is off course the best.

For BBQ i would say Argentina and southern USA.

Seafood basically any region near the coast, but japan is on the top here tbh, they just do the most shit with fish and actually still makes it decent.
If you want the best mussels you have to go to holland or belgium tho.

Spicey food india as far as i have extended my flavor pallet ;)

For very fine delicacies france and spain.

For breakfast, Brittain.

For most variety the USA.

For the best overall kitchen from worst to bad in the entire country I find Belgium to be the best. Most Micheline stars/capita. You are always within 20 minutes of another Micheline star restaurant (in france it's 2 hours) and we have the most quality brasseries and restaurants per capita and per square mile of the world. Pretty hard to find a shitty eating place here compared to other countries.



If you want to go to the number 1 restaurant of the world, go to El Bulli in Spain.

North vietnam's goal was to unite the country, Americas was to stop this hapening and stop the spread of communism. You withdrew (retreated) and vietnam was united. You lost, they won get over it.

Potatoes is an aquired taste if you ask some people in china and other countries. I remember reading about a guy cokking a roast dinner in china for some chinese people. They woudlt eat the potatoes and put rice there instead.

Fair enough I guess... I'd bet the cook tried something funkadoo w/ them though. Prolley just cooked em w/ the roast and put on the place next to the meat, which is fine for me, but isn't how I'd serve someone from china.

I'd fry em up w/ some onion, garlic, rosemary, and pepper, then sprinkle salt on em as I take them off the heat. Or mashed (Whipped) w/ a nice gravy made from the juices of the roast or something.

You seem to be quite upset, and apparently you misunderstood my intended meaning. I wasn't saying that US food is shit, or that it by definition is bad - I was rather making the point that whilst I am not certain which particular national cuisine I would rate the highest (I haven't tasted the dishes of all nations), I am certain that of the one or two answers I am weighing against each other; the US ain't one of them.
Meat and potatoes: that actually covers a whole shitload of countries: we do meat and potatoes in Denmark as well. *Shrugs*

But honestly, you deftly avoided *reflecting* upon the actual question I posed. What is the "checking" you have done to ascertain that meat and potatoes are *not* an acquired taste? How many potatoes do you think the average Chinese or Japanese person eats in an ordinary week? I know Japanese people here (in Denmark), and they still don't eat all that many meat and potato dishes: wouldn't they do that if it was some kind of "natural" taste?

Italian for me. I could eat Italian food every day for every meal for the rest of my life and be perfectly happy with that. I love going out and trying crazy regional food I’ve never eaten before, just so long as I can stop and get a burger on the way home if I end up hating it. And no one makes pastries better than the polish.

I edited my post hehe. But not fast enough. The way your post read to me came across as agressive without cause. Though I edited as I often read things that make for the best argument when their wasn't any intention behind the words, simply because I enjoy arguing. My bad. ;)

I don't know any asians who eat much of anything besides their native food to be honest. That doesn't say anything about where they now live, or the food they have their, but only that asians (Stereotyping FTW) tend to be unwilling to change their diets. (Even if its clearly beneficial and they do like the food.)


On to another matter... People keep saying British food is good... I've always considered it to be at the bottom of the list. One of the recent French presidents even had a big hoopla about it a while back if I remember right... The kicker for me though is that they eat things like sheep brain, and blood pudding... Things that I would never even consider eating, even if I was starving to death. I'd much prefer the nothingness of oblivion to the foul taste of something like that. Even the candy is foul from what I hear, sweet as hell, but foul none the less.

I don't know any asians who eat much of anything besides their native food to be honest. That doesn't say anything about where they now live, or the food they have their, but only that asians (Stereotyping FTW) tend to be unwilling to change their diets. (Even if its clearly beneficial and they do like the food.)

But that is the thing: I imagine that most people who have not been exposed to a varied diet in their upbringing are inclined to "stick with what they know". I would speculate that all "dishes", (that is; prepared meals) represent some manner of acquired taste, but that it might be meaningful to speak of "natural" ingredients. For example; some species of mammals, some fruits and berries, milk and milk-products etc. are virtually present all over the inhabited parts of Earth, and would probably be as close to natural as you can get. But, for example, potatoes (and, of course, a large number of fish) would not be something that all people will have been exposed to throughout history. The potato was, in fact, not that popular (for a variety of reasons) when it first came to Europe, and it might never have become popular if it were not for some advantages of the crop and plant, which have nothing to do with its taste. In the same manner; rice is so common in Asia, not because they have some "genetic" taste for it, but because it is a good crop to base an agricultural society upon. Consider the few remaining nomadic tribes; they eat very little of what we consider "the basics"; corn, corn products, vegetables etc. - they don't stay put long enough to grow stuff, so they never got used to eating it.
If I were to speculate (some more), I would suspect that truly "natural" taste, only relates to sweet and salt, 'cause both are biologically valuable and hard to come by - hence, it seems plausible that we would be hard-wired to like the taste, so as to encourage us to gorge on it, at every chance.


- As for Asians; they tend to live longer under comparable socio-economic conditions (i.e. Japan) and they tend to have more healthy median BMIs. Maybe we are the ones who are unwilling to change in spite of liking the taste, and it being beneficial for us? :p

Ive eaten in a lot of restraunts in a lot of countries..

nothing comes close to America... and its not because its America.. its becasue we have such a HUGE vareity.. the average city might have 40 Mexican restraunts.. 10 greek restraunts.. 5 Indian restraunts.. 20 chinese etc...

in other countries.. many large cities may offer you all these choices but they might only have 4 or 5 of each so your chances of finding that one Mexican restraunt that fits your exact taste is much higher in the average American city.

Id say thats the only reason its better...

It's a really tough decision.

My dad loves too cook and most of the stuff he makes is just absolutely incredible. It's one of the main reasons I visit my parents at least once a week, lol. He cooks mostly Germanic/Eastern European stuff, it's absolutely delicious, but I think that particular diet really evolved around agricultural and rural areas where people did a lot of labor in their daily lives, and it's really too fattening for someone who leads a sedentary life working on websites and shit. A lot of the stuff he makes is also inspired by French cuisine as well.

Italian and Greek food is also very good. I've also been exposed to some actual Chinese cooking (not our fake Americanized shit) and most of it is really good as well, but the Chinese fail hard at making desert. Vietnamese cuisine has recently become a favorite of mine as well.

I've heard people say "American Food" because it's a variety of ethnic food. Well they have that in Europe as well. Just because you're in Germany or something doesn't mean you won't find Greek, Italian, Chinese or other restaurants dedicated to ethnic cuisine from around the world. That's not phenomena that specific to America.

Or Salmiakki (http://mift.net/shop/sal-08-2.jpg)? :rolleyes:

Maybe some Mammi (http://www.metalfromfinland.com/img/mammi.jpg)? Mmm! :)

Of those three, only maksalaatikko is actually food. salmiakki is candy and mammi = dessert (looks like shit, but its quite edible)

Sure, Finnish food is generally pretty crap (finns cant seem to know how to use spices for example).

Some pretty kickass traditional dishes here though, for example:

With that said, I think by far the best seafood in the world reigns from Spain.

For pastas, you clearly can't beat Italy, although any city in Europe will offer good pastas. Once again though, like the argument about American food, those pastas will still be Italian food.

For up-scale cuisine, as someone said earlier, France and Spain for the epic win.

Argentinian steak? Take those words back whoreface. I am currently in Nebraska. Here we have a little thing called premium corn-fed beef.

well the best food i personally ever had, was in france, in a little town directly at the beach, near caen. it was me and a friend, traveling through france with the car, and we were sleeping in cheap formule 1 motels.

but the one day we decided to eat somethign really great, we only had that one time since it was so expensive, and the rest of the holidays we ate our own stuff which we had brought with us or bought in supermarkets most of the time.

well it consisted of 5 seperate rounds

the first round was mussels with sauce of white-wine.

the second was with various Crustaceans (dunno if this is the correct word in english)

the third round was Lobster

the fourth round was a parfait with pear and some ice and hot cooked fruits, and other stuff.

and then a plate with verious cheese

and then we had alot of white wine

it was like 150 euro per person.

but no other meal i ever had since then, or before, could ever beat that one.

and while we ate we watched the fisher boats bringing the fresh stuff from the sea into the harbor and into the restaurant

Look, I'm a steak lover, I've been to great steakhouses in the U.S. such as Morton's or Gibsons or Ruth's Chris or Smith and Wollensky, and they all have great steaks.

I reckon the stuff that they offer in "traditional' japanese restaurants in the West is not exactly what people eat in Japan, it's been adapted to the local tastes. But still, sushi is RAWWWWRRR!

Sushi is also different there :p

Reading comprehension for the win. That sentence means (alternatively stated), that the majority of people I know don't eat there, and the ones that I know that do only do so unwillingly (due to them being children, etc).

EDIT: Also, there aren't that many McDonalds in my area...very few. We have alternate chains all over this state that are far more massive, such as Runza, Amigos, etc.

Yes, you won't find sweet & sour chicken over there, more like frog legs and shit.

Also, McDonalds in Japan sucks. The burgers aren't as good, the sausage biscuits aren't as good, and their drink sizes are like a kids meal size here. Wendy's in Japan kicks the shit out of American Wendy's though.

Well no, I haven't been to the south. When I think of American food, I gnerally think of the shit people eat in the northern US and Canada, and it completely fails when compared to central and eastern European cuisine.

Well that's your problem. Northerners can't cook good food to save their fucking lives. Having eaten in both places, there is no comparsion. Unless you want to eat healthy. But in that case, you don't like good food anyway.


People keep saying American food, but honestly, other than fast food, american-style pizzas, or creole cuisine, what food in the U.S. is actually american? It's all adapted from other placed.

With that said, I think by far the best seafood in the world reigns from Spain.

For pastas, you clearly can't beat Italy, although any city in Europe will offer good pastas. Once again though, like the argument about American food, those pastas will still be Italian food.

For up-scale cuisine, as someone said earlier, France and Spain for the epic win.

You can't beat an Argentinian steak.

Carribean (Cuban, Colombian, Venezuelan, etc. NOT Dominican) food is also delicious, although by no means classy.

As far as I know, US southern style cooking is unique to the area. There are probably some cultural spin-off dishes, but I haven't found anywhere else on 4 continents that compares.

Not exactly. Some things are deep fried. Some things are seasoned. And some awesome shit is baked/simmered/boiled. Depends on the dish. Southern food is definitely not healthy though. But most healthy things taste like shit.

Being an American, I can appreciate a little of everything, but I am one picky motherfucker. I don't eat very much red meat on the basis that white meats are better for you and I eat enough cheese and eggs to harden my arteries as it is. I like Italian and French the best overall, I'm mostly Italian, Norwegian and French by blood. I live off of breads, pasta, cheese and seafood. Norway has some decent stuff but the weird shit really kinda kills it.

As for stuff unique to around where I live, smoked wild pacific salmon is pretty damned badass. Atlantic salmon is dogshit, get it from Alaska, B.C. or Washington if you want a real salmon. It's true that outside of the south and new england there really isn't anything all that unique with American cooking though, the west hasn't been settled for long enough to get its own traditions when it comes to food and with the rise of global trade I doubt we ever will.

We've got rocky mountain oysters though, they make 'em in Washington too even though we're past the rockies. Actually not all that bad, they taste like chicken. Not that I've made a habit of eating them, but hey if your dad calls you a pussy you've got to prove him wrong amirite?

You really hit the nail on your thumb there.

I've tasted sushi once, and I never even eat rice. I don't have any special knowledge or admiration for Japanese culture. I only know what Naruto is because a couple of years ago some dumbass tried to convince me that by hitting people with your index fingers instead of your fists, it's like hitting them from the inside... or something. He continued to elaborate on Naruto or one of his without a doubt effeminate posse members utilizing this sophisticated fighting technique.

I commented on his dumbassness, followed by him stating that he could break my arm using my bodyweight because he was a Kung Fu trainee. I dared him to try, and he silently walked away probably after deducing that he couldn't, which seemed a lot closer to the truth than his first postulation (take notes). Good for him, he looked frail.

Now, I have to ask you, what is a weeaboo? I'm assuming it's something Japanese, weeaboo faggot. You can enhance your Naruto episode with some cheeseburgers.

I'm also going to assume that you like to pour diarrhoea all over you.
