I am Italian therefore I am used to eating really good foods. In my country, especially in the southern, there is a long culinary tradition. You may eat good dishes of fish, or, in the same restaurant, you may taste fantastic meat dishes. I think italian cuisine is the most famous cuisine in the world, and it is also quite healthy.

Hi everyone,
I have not tried the british food because, mainly, I have not been in Britain. Anyway, a friend of mine be there some years ago, and told me that, in fact, food is not very good. He told me that fish and cheeps taste too much of oil, and in general, the food in Britain is expensive.
My favorite food is traditional soaps, in particular, mote and sancocho. Both of them are peasant's food, the later is from communities in the hinterlands, and the former is from communities at north of Colombia and near the atlantic ocean. About international food I love the classic macarroni-cheese.

I tried fish and chips in a restaurant in São Paulo (Brazil). Although fish isn't my favourite dish was very good. I would like to try them in London, of course. I think the British restaurants is cheap because Tess, Ravi and Rob said that we can eat really well there.
In Brazil you can eat as well as in London but you need have money. I like Italian, Chinese and Arab food. These cuisine are very easy to cook so you can make them at home.

Hello evrybody !

Tunisian food is Generally spacy and delicious.

Hi everybody!

I'm brazilian and I've never tried british food. But I hope that I can taste it.
Here in Brazil there are a lot of things to eat and I LOVE "feijoada". It's so strong and delicius!!!

I haven't tried British Food but I like to try it especially Fish and chips and also I would love to try pudding . In Egypt , we have many varieties . we have Italian,Chinese ,Korean ,Syrian , Lebanese,American and Asian food.And of course We don't miss our Egyptian famous dishes in many restaurants. Really so much varieties . If you visit Egypt , you could choose of the many types of food and try Egyptian food which loads of tourists like so much.

I have never tried British food. I hope that I can taste it.
In General I find that Arabic food is the most delicious dish in the world,but I don't mind try other dishes like Chinese,Greek,Indian cuisine. I would rather eat food at home rather than out because is more cleaner and healthy. The restaurants that are in Palestine are fast food restaurants like Chilly house , KFC and MacDonald. There are also Chinese,Mexican and Japanese food. I pond of Chinese food, because it's health, not heavy,not spicy. It contains different kinds of vegetables and beans which are suitable for me as I am vegetarian.
