I've never been to British so I've never eaten British food. In my country, you can eat foods from Asia countries. Myanmar traditional foods are also good and delicious. I like Myanmar foods the best. If I have a chance, I'll try British foods once. BYE!!!!

I haven't tried British food yet but I imagine it a bit heavy based in the descriptions from Tess and Ravi, I'd like to try it sometime in the future, although it seems to not have a lot of vegetables I'll give it a chance if I'd have the opportunity to taste it. Here we have lots of different kinds of very good restaurants from most of the countries. Despite we probably don't have all the variety of restaurants and foods I imagine there would by in Britain, we do have restaurants where to eat most of the cuisine from all over the world. I prefer the cuisine based on meat because I grew up in the countryside and we used to eat meat in almost all the meals we had, we had vegetables too but in this country is very popular the grilled meat with vegetables. I like pasta and fish too tough.

Thanks for the episode.
Great site!

I haven't tried British food before . I agree with Tess I think there isn't especial dishes we can called it British food.Also, I think all of different types of food there are around the world . I mean nowdays we can eat any food in anyplace we are in . Especially if I am in capital of country or important city . For me , like anyone in my age like fast food restaurants such as ,MC, KFC, Pizzahutt and burger king,etc. There are many fantastic cuisines but I think I prefer Egyptian and italian food more than anything else and that because I love pastas very much and I like spices food .

Well, i am from Bangladesh. I've never been in Britain but we have a lot of restaurants, Chinese restaurants,Thai restaurants,Indian restaurants. Specially we have eat rice,fish,beef,chicken as our regular meal.

Hi everyone, as a lot of people, I've never been in England, but i'd like to visit as soon as possible. In referent to this subject, I have tested meal from different countries like, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, France, USA, Japan, China and so forth. I should say that I love to eat all of them, but depending my mood, I like to eat meal from different countries. By the way, I want to take advantage of the opportunity to thank the LearnEnglish team for their excellent work and help us to learn English.

Hi Jhonny,

Thank you for your kind comments :) We are pleased to hear that.

Best wishes,

I have never tried British food and i thought they eat a lot of meat and steak and drink tea or coffee or alcohol. I like eat Yemeni food specially in Yemeni restaurants my favorite cuisine are Hesah, Buried meat and Haneeth meat withe rice and for dessert i like eat Arika and Bint Al Sahn withe one of best honey in the world culled Do'ani honey.

I have never been in England so, I have never tried English food but I want to try it. I like eating international food like Italian, Japanese or Peruvian food but my favourite food is definitely Mexican traditional food because I love eating food with spicy sauce. In addition, the Mexican traditional food is cheaper than others are. Only in the cities, like Mexico City, we can find food of others countries; in the towns, probably you can find only Mexican food.

Actually I've never been in Britain, and I have never seen any British resturants in other countries, so I haven't tried british food yet .
I live in Iran and I think we have the most delicious foods in the world though we haven't any good resturant outside the country . Irainian uaually spend so much time to prepare a food. We eat rice a lot in Tehran but any of our cities has special traditional foods.
We have many different kind of food which is made by rice some of them are made by rice and something like meat, potato , tomato, etc and serve in on dish. and some of them is a simple rice which is cooked and serve with a different dish that we name "Khorosht" , we add "Khorosht" to the rice while eating.
we have other foods which is name "Kabab" it is meat or chicken which is grilled or cook over fire.
Anyway besides our traditional foods you can find many different resturants in my country and there is foods of allover the world here: Italian, Indian, chinese, etc.. I like'em all but I hate chinese . I think chinese eat all creatures and it is really disgusting.

I'm from Russia and i'm living in small city. Inspite of hat we have varius cafes including pubs with english food.The most famous is called 'London'. There I've tried fish and chips and i liked it.It was unusual serving dishes in the newspaper. As to rostbeef and other dishes from meet, generally i dont like it. I prefer italian food, and fortunately we have a many such cafes. Pizza,pasta, lasagna a lot of cheese,'s divinely! I think, it's the most popular and available food in the world.
