Indian is my favorite and I am so happy we have found an Indian restaurant about a 20 minute drive from home.

Chinese is ok, but I think the quality is pretty shit over here.

Found Indian was really expensive in the States

Nonetheless, British food is still taken the piss out of. Most people don't eat at fancy restaurants either.

I like British food, so I really don't care. In fact, it's great. I get all the Marmite to myself, all the Branston Pickle, salad cream and other stuff.

Peanut butter and jelly is disgusting. And I can't stand Italian food either. Pasta and tomatoes are shite.

I donít agree that British food is taken the piss out of, by who ? the lard arsed Americans raised on mega portion full fat burgers and fried chicken? and FYI marmite, Branson pickle and salad cream has fuck all to do with British Cuisine, we have great chefs cooking traditional cuisine, Rick Stein, Brian Turner, James Martin, Jamie Oliver , Gordon Ramsay and dozens more, theres one half decent chef in America that is an Austrian, Wolfgang Puch, started out o.k but has now moved into steak house and Pizza franchises because thatís where the money is in a Trumpland.

In general I've found that too. The one near me is very reasonable. Average meal is $13. I can never finish it there either, always too much, so bring it home to finish off a day or two later.

Quite partial to Middle eastern food, mates family from Lebanon and have had some great food, donít ask me what itís called itís just tasty

Lived in the Middle East for six years, Lebanese the king of cuisines, you are talking about Kibbeh, babbaganoush, , shish taouk, shawarmah etc. In London eat at Fahkreldine on Piccadilly, Al Hamra on Edgeware Rd, great take away/ home delivery from Comptoir Libanese in Kensington, they also have outlets Ar Heathrow, Gatwick and Westfield London Stadium ( had a West Ham pre match mezzeh there)

It's taken the piss out of by the French as well. Big time. It's something I've always come across in my travels overseas, British food has a poor reputation. I think it stems from the fact we had to ration everything during and after the war. The reputation still exists. Boiling the fuck out of potatoes and veggies is a big one for example.

I know the foods I mentioned aren't true British food either. That's just the stuff I can get on a fairly regular basis that I like from Britain.

And how many meals have you eaten by those chefs you mention anyway? That's a different class of food altogether anyway.

FYI, and for your further elucidation, the French take the piss out of every other country on this planets cuisine, none more so than the U.S. and BTW, have eaten in many of those and equivalent standard restaurants, admittedly mostly on biz expenses or in an other professional capacity.

Most people haven't and don't normally. High end restaurants are really not the norm.

The fact is, wherever I've been, other nations take the piss out of British food.
