These are so random


louiebro13

ikr. of all the asian countries, OP went with Kazakhstan and Lebanon (which prolly have great food, but you’d expect China and / or Japan to be there).


T26_00

Lebanese food is actually really good


lamatopian

Khazakhastan has best food. Every other food is for little girl.


RandomSOADFan

Yeah until you find out the food comes from Tinshein swimming pool's filtration system


Foxy02016YT

Kazakhstan food is very nice, my wife loves it


Roger_Maxon76

Borat?


lordnahte42

Lived down the road from a Lebanese bakery. Went there at least every week.


m_yoda20

What exactly is American food? French fries?


MERKINSEASON3807

A mix of other food cultures and you have to remember the us is huge food culture changes very fast in the us depending on where your going


Rvtrance

Yeah Japanese is considered some of the best by many people who aren’t even from there. It’s probably my favorite.


nope-nails

Not to mention no "results" choice so people are choosing food they are familiar with


No_Amoeba_

What I noticed in my trip to France isn't so much any particular food being godly, it's more that the common everyday foods are just so much better quality than here (Canada). Bread of course but also the meats, deli, sausages, cheeses, salads, spreads, sandwiches, whatever... Even a box of industrial cookies or crackers tasted better than what we have here. There is just good eating all around in France.


LadyFerretQueen

Yes! French food to me is superior because they manage to make every dish I tried look and taste heavenly. And I have been all around Europe.


ItzCrystalFlame

I just got to Barcelona from France yesterday, and this is exactly how I felt. I had never heard about french cuisine other than their deserts and cheeses, and I realized that their food is just higher quality versions of other foods


DirtPoorDog

I could live off nothing but french butter cheese and bread, and die happy from malnutrition. It would be worth it.


TheMightyGabriel

I've had the same experience when travelling to Canada (am French). The sheer quality of the products is just so much higher here. Also, viennoiseries.


DefiantLemur

Probably better regulations on the raw ingredients they use for meals


Arsewhistle

Yeah, I lived in North America for two years, and the quality of food there is significantly worse. Anyone voting for the US over France is very wrong


Crosroad

The United States just has a lot of very diverse cuisine. I’d reckon that you can find a really good anything in the United States it’s just that the consistency that sucks. There’s a lot of shit to sift through to find the good


MERKINSEASON3807

We also use alot of preservatives so if you're born in a country that uses less or no preservatives you can taste it in the food which some may enjoy it some may not


Hiro_Trevelyan

I've been told that McDonald's France is the testing track for McDonald's worldwide. Since we have such high expectations for food, if it's good enough for us it's probably good enough for anyone.


penbehindtheear

Odd. I had the exact opposite experience. The expensive fine dining was some of the best food I've ever eaten, but the sandwiches etc I had were truly terrible.


Disastrous-Soup-5413

Spain and Italy were like that too


Tony0695

U should try switzerlands food. Its on another level then france. The quality is proportional to the cost tho… escpecially the meat as it has to be from Switzerland no imports.


Obamsphere

Hot take but Balkans


A_bunch_of_potateos

The only correct answer. Gyros and kebab


Obamsphere

Baklava too


A_bunch_of_potateos

lamatopian

My great grandmother made the best baklava. RIP


David_Bolarius

Levantine food with the same. Eastern Med fr fr.


LadyFerretQueen

Yaaaas!! I always say this. Balkans have the best food hands down. Prebranc is my favourite dish ever.


duck123_

More love for lebanese food!


becauseofrandomness

For a second I read that as “lesbian food” and was so confused and was about to Google it until I read it again


[deleted]

I heard the vagitarian diet is one you’re born to follow


MrsChess

I don’t know why but all the lesbians in my life would kill for banh mi.


dogtoes101

yes so underrated


Bonfires_Down

It's only so low because people haven't tried it.


CaCBoI2nItE

arab food is godly. I'm surprised it was voted the lowest.


xadox_192

Estados Unidos mejor que España no se lo creen ni ellos


OppenheimersGuilt

Solo diría que para las carnes. Los únicos que le hacen competi en ese tema son los vascos honestamente. En todo lo demás lo bueno americano es basicamente importado.


1Oliebollen

Lebanon


RzYaoi

Tf is my country doing in this poll xD


Bulky_Ad_5645

What country are you coming from 😍


RzYaoi

Belgium :D


Northerleyfire

Belgium has fantastic mussels. Also chocolate.


Diligent_Jury_9956

Belgium waffles. Is that even Belgium? Hey you gave the world fries.


FlipFlopOnionChop

Also crossaints


BillyWhizz09

Belgian chocolate


DV-03

Another belgian here And tbh our food aint bad. Its just unknown, like no one in the world knows about stoofvlees and mussels with fries. But they are so fcking delicious


Reading_Asari

I loved Belgium waffles when I visited as a kid. You guys really don't hold off on the toppings and the waffles themselves are HUGE. One of my most vivid childhood memories♥️


Bulky_Ad_5645

You guys has nice foods :D


wry_zebra

i mean our food is just a mix af our neighbor and a belgium flaire on top of it so i guess its the best of them all oh we have waffles thats probably it


lawsattract

I voted Belgium just with the waffles in mind. Never even tried Belgium waffles.


wry_zebra

when you have te chance you must try it


IanPKMmoon

Sure but our cuisine is heavily based on French cuisine, while our general food quality is top notch and we also have food cultures from all over the world coming here to share their food, when comparing just native cuisine I don't think we deserve to be on this list. Our native food is limited to waffles, fries, chocolate, mussels and some other seafood dishes.


pooryxa

Italy , turkey , Iran , India ,Croatia and mexico aren't on the list but belguim is 🗿


blaster289

Well they probably knew people would take those so they didn't put them as an option.


Olovor_Mersh

I guess, but isn’t France known for having really good food? Why is France on the list?


Formal_Strategy9640

French food is actually really famous for upper class, snooty “fine dining”. There’s a reason why France has the highest number of Michelan stars and a ton of famous chefs: because of their appeal to the rich and wealthy. Doesn’t really make a difference to the average joe, but it is what it is


_Yukiteru-kun_

Maybe it has the most Michelin stars because Michelin is a French company…..


Imthebest66

Nope that's all wrong. French cuisine is much, much more than that. The reason it gets more Michelin Stars is because Michelin is a french company.


Key-Service7491

What is so special about Croatia (not hating i'm Croatian)


pooryxa

I love Croatian food , I don't know if it's just me or not


Key-Service7491

Its more Balkan food then Croatian


IanPKMmoon

I mean they put the US there so no suprised


lqlex

DV-03

You got anything against belgium :p


MrsChess

Belgium fries with beef stew are fucking epic.


Thomas1VL

I mean as a Belgian I'm always happy to be back from vacation to eat our fries and drink our beer :D


ZarosRunescape

Wtf are these options No mexico? No Italy? No india? No china/japan?


A_Nerd__

Those countries always end up winning this type of poll, so it's nice to see a poll where those natural winners aren't included.


scheisse_grubs

But if you’re ONLY given the winning options, then it’s more of a guessing game. Even then, I don’t know about others but I don’t know anything about Kazakhstan let alone their food. I don’t even think there’s any food options like that where I live. Same goes with Belgium, I have no idea what kind of food is eaten in Belgium. This poll would’ve resonated a lot better with people if it included the more well know cuisines because those you find the most and likely have experienced more of.


SuspiciousLambSauce

If that’s your point then France shouldn’t have been included too


A_Nerd__

Yeah, I think so too. But it's tied with the US and Spain is pretty close too, so I think it's fine.


Foxy02016YT

I think the US should have also not been included since the food here tends to just be from other counties anyway


kickzway

The us does take those foods from other countries and chance them though. I remember going to Italy and being dissapointed in the food because American Italian is actually quite a bit different. I’m sure Italian food from Italy is actually better but I’m just used to the stuff I’ve eaten my whole life


Foxy02016YT

Yeah but still, it’s another obvious winner because it’s just a remix


kickzway

Very much agree the us was definitely an outlier in this poll


SuspiciousLambSauce

I think the US only got so many votes because there’s lotta Americans here Spain is interesting, it did better than I’d expected


massive_cock

I was hoping the US wouldn't win. Not out of anti-Americanism (I am American, but living elsewhere) but because while the US has so much variety and convenience and so on, I've turned on its size, excess, and in a lot of cases, its food quality standards. I'd love the US menu made with fresher, better stuff...


A_Nerd__

I voted US and I'm German. I just really love Burgers, and while they where invented by some sailors in Hamburg I think (hence the name), the Americans really made Burgers great.


Northerleyfire

I voted US and I'm British. Was a close one between American food and Spanish food, but American wins out for me.


chez-linda

People probably voted United States because they think it has the best food


Eurasiawpww

Yep... I have had food from around the world... and I have yet to find a cuisine that doesn't have some sort of good food.


neubiiAUT

not that it matters, but if a poll has only those options then pick the best out of those options. Yes, there are other countries with better food, but from THIS pool of options, who has the best food?


NYXMG

Exactly my thoughts


Ryukhoe

Haven't tried the other ones so I'll go with Spain. Poland has some dope cuisine too.


justadd_sugar

My man tried to sneak Kazakhstan in there like we wouldn't notice


LokkJ7

out of all these, Lebanese is probably the best.


Lewi_tm

Spain


LokkJ7

Spanish food is good too but Lebanese is amazing.


notarstan

As my favorite meal is Beshbarmak I had to vote for Kazakhstan


Mickey_likes_dags

French cuisine is the foundation of much of the western world's dishes


Hoelahoepla

Italy probably. But not on the list.


ElDiablo8585085921

our eyes differ but not opinions homie


Hoelahoepla

What can I say. It’s the cutest costume.


ElDiablo8585085921

*gives wholesome award*


Ping-and-Pong

Our skin colours differ, but not our amazing tastes in food!


ElDiablo8585085921

ITALIAN UNGA BUNGA INTENSIFIES


SummerNights14

True but if it was on the list it would've obviously won, so I think OP wanted to know which countrie have the best food out of these, and not out of all the countries


GUUSGUUSGUUSGUUSGUUS

Americans really think they got better food than Spain, it's a bit sad really


OppenheimersGuilt

Grew up half in Spain and half in the USA and after that I've been living around Europe for the past 12 years. The USA has shit cuisine for anything not meat-related, that said meat culture there is top-notch. Ribs in the US or all the various kinds of steak will absolutely destroy most places in Western Europe. French steaks are a joke, it's basically sauce with a side of steak. The only places I've seen that have a very strong and high quality meat culture are the Basque country in northern Spain, spots in Italy and spots in Romania. You can obviously find great steakhouses all around Europe, but they're basically American-style. Note: I'm principally a carnivore. Some people love cheese, I love meats. Also, there being restaurants for X is not the same as the country's cuisine, which is why I still stand behind the statement that the USA is shit for most things but meats.


Knot_In_My_Butt

As a Latino I truly believe America has better food. Greater variety, far more innovative and less tied to authenticity.


Ok-Process-9687

Who the fuck voted for America??? You can’t buy bread in America without enough sugar to give diabetes to six horses


oclastax

Plastic slab cheese 💀


naykid69

You definitely can, just go to a baker instead of buying wonder bread. Plus the US has New York and New Orleans. Some of the best food in the world in those cities. I personally voted Spain, but it’s not like the US has shitty food.


GrossWordVomit

I'm from UK and I always hear in America the bread is weird and the chocolate is sour


ArcticTemper

I've never been more disappointed by food than when I tried Hershey after a friend visiting from the states brought me some. It was, and I cannot stress this enough; fucking minging.


The-Berzerker

It‘s because they intentionally put butyric acid in their chocolate which tastes like vomit


Throwaway20220106

I don’t think anyone in the US actually eats those, besides using them as an ingredient for something else


MCofPort

Nope, we actually think European Chocolate is too sweet. But you're generalizing American Food, which includes Barbeque, American Italian, Soul Food, and some of the best Seafood on earth. California and Texas have amazing food that it culturally shares with Mexico. Yes, processed food will taste like garbage, but then again that's what processed food is. But trust me that when people are in control of the food we cook at home or in a restaurant, American food is amazing. The generalization you pit on hersheys is like us going to Britain and thinking all food is grey mush, or that French like to eat Snails and Frogs, (but since Louisiana was once colonized by France and far South, alligator is a delicacy.)


flophi0207

BBQ tastes amazing and Coca Cola is the best tasting beverage out there imo and most of the s Tier snacks like potato chips are also part of american food culture. Its the tastiest, but unhealthy af


Ok-Process-9687

Coca Cola is pure sugar, trust me my family buys it so much Even I used to drink it once a week after football matches (now I only drink water) it is awful for health and pure sugar and only otherwise nostalgia at best


penis-chan489

and that is exactly why america is voted so much. us americans are bred to love a bunch of sugar and fat in all our food. the food culture here, is just every other culture but loaded up with a bunch of unhealthy things. so because america is the majority on reddit and we’re always surrounded by this type of food, it makes sense to vote for something more familiar. I voted america not just because of that, but also because i’m a carnivore and the meat here is amazing. it’s probably the best place to get a good meal for literally any cuisine, it just won’t be top-notch traditional.


Ping-and-Pong

Fun fact, Americans only make up 47% to 54% of reddit, so we can assume that they are barely, if not at all a majority compared to the rest of the world on this platform. It does make sense though that as a single country they tower over the rest of us individually when it comes to percentage of users though, since this is a platform primarily targeted at the English speaking western countries, and America is by far the largest of them! Just a fun fact I learnt the other day while doing some research for a different reply :) Side note: I've heard American diners are much different over here in the UK from what they actually should be like, according to my sister who used to live over the pond... I think it comes down primarily to what meats the British can get and rules and regulations are put on them that makes them taste so different. Personally I'd probably prefer English cooked meats but I can totally get why you prefer the American stuff, if being, I presume, what you grew up with!


HiImNickOk

imo America has the best variety for sure by some margin. Definitely a jack-of-all-trades scenario. It's definitely the best country in the world to get a passable meal from literally any culture.


ToffeeMunchAndCrunch

>to get a passable meal from literally any culture. So it's not American food then lmao


The-Berzerker

Yeah no other country has food from other places /s


Olovor_Mersh

Which country has the best food doesn’t mean which country produces food items the best, it means which country has created the best food/which country has the best food it’s known for, America has pretty good food, so it makes sense


The-Berzerker

Lmao people voting for the US


Benjideaula

U.S food culture is an amalgamation of all the world's food cultures.


Neo_dode56

I think the poll is about the food that originally from there.


pinkpowerball

International cuisine isn't exclusive to the US.


HanSwolo66

When I was there meat was incredible


Diligent_Jury_9956

What meat? Like just in general? Mexican? Chinese American? Mexican American?


pjabrony

Barbecue. The US has a specialization in meat cooked at a low temperature for ridiculously long times (like 12 hours). Pulled pork, ribs, brisket, chicken...etc. There are different regional versions like Carolina, Atlanta, Memphis, Kansas City, Texas.


Ct-5736-Bladez

There’s a place near me (American) that slow cooks their meat for like 48 hours before serving it. It’s fucking incredible


Downstackguy

What do you see in the meat aisle of a grocery store


[deleted]

As a french i'm happy to see that Redditors like our foods :)


MrAdolf138

Never had French food but voted it anyway


Prepetuallyconfused1

I don’t like any of this food


SoggyLegos

Who the hell is saying United States? The prompt says best food not who eats the most food.


bt_leo

Usa ? ... Lebanon has the best food among those listed but since they don't know it they didn't choose


kekmacska2005

France obviously


Strudleboy

I voted US because we have every food even if you say “it’s not as good as where it comes from” it’s still damn good and 90% of the time you can find a small place owned by some old lady who makes her food taste exactly like back home.


misha1137

I live in the US and there is a Mexican restaurant near me that has an abuela outside hand making fresh tortillas every day. And I live in a small ass town with under 10k people far away from big cities.


Strudleboy

Yeah the US has some excellent Mexican food options for sure. Depending on the state of course.


Worried-Tomorrow-204

Italy?


Tommiz_eXe

italy


Floxi29

Italy and Germany imo Really wonder why Italy isn't listed


Ewenf

Because they always win this poll lmao


Northerleyfire

Germany never wins. At least I haven't seen it win. It's always Italy cause of Pizza and Pasta.


Ewenf

I was referring to the "Italy not mentioned here" but yeah Italy wrongfully always wins even when France is a choice. Signed, an angry French.


Patmank56

Which is funny cause the modern versions of those were invented in the US by Italian Americans


red_reader_68

US food over Spain? Spanish food is criminally underrated in reddit


oclastax

Who voted for plastic cheese and fast food 💀 (Also why not italy ? I wouldnt have voted for them but they have some great food)


aiden22304

Because America has a little of everything, especially Mexican food, not just fast food, but authentic stuff as well, which I’d argue is better than most of the stuff on this list. God bless the Mexicans and their glorious cuisine. Also, “American” cheese is a sin. That shit takes like ass. If you want a true American cheese that’s actual cheese, try Colby-Jack.


KetamineKaren

The aging time for Colby Jack is just two weeks. That's absurd. Nor wonder it looks so strange.


Darkrath_3

I'm not even American but I can appreciate the beauty of a properly well made burger. I don't think it's fair to base all American cuisine off of McDonald's.


dogtoes101

anyone who says USA hasn't had any other cultures food


blaster289

Here is my logic. They didn't say that the food was from the US so it could also include other food generally made in the US. So Thai, Chinese, Mexican, etc. If you mean food actually originated from the US, there isn't much of anything.


NonSequiturGuy1

Right. I see your point and it’s valid, but you can also find all these foods in America as there are immigrants from all these countries with restaurants there: many of them Michelin Rated.


353_crypto

Hahah who the fk voting for America


skimsa

Anyone who votes US has never eaten outside of it


WhoStoleMyPassport

Fr


flophi0207

voted US and never been inside of it


titouan0212

France has the best food in the world


LordAsriel1369

How the fuck is French not first, like BRUH


ishanG24

Where tf is Indian food?


dogtoes101

would be my choice if it was here


Alex09464367

No British food 😞


ClassyKebabKing64

Everyone here forgetting shawarma is Lebanese


dpcmufc

where did Kazakhstan come from


this_ismy_username_

This is such a random assortment of countries to arrange, but I think Lebanese food is the tastiest of the options I'd say.


MangoBaba0101

Yalla habibi


glad_potatis

Isnt the US just triple fried cheese?


Edmond-the-Great

Not just cheese, we deep fry everything.


glad_potatis

*Internal screaming*


Patmank56

The U.S. cause you can get all of those countries food and more


007Coinboy

Kazakhstan number 1 food. Great success!


EJG_Music

How to tell Reddit traffic is 50% just Americans. Also where Japan, where Italy ?


borkogot

All the Americans voting they’re country is my guess


AlecTheMotorGuy

In the USA you have access to authentic food from all over the world if you are near a major metro area.


tyrom22

United States only because we take everyone’s food and alter it


dogtoes101

which is why food is worse here lol


tyrom22

LIES!!! The Philippino-Japanese fusion place by me is the absolute tits


mincecraft__

US fusion food is really good, I’ll give the US that much at least.


rydentthemartyr

Houston's viet-cajun was fucking phenomenal.


Benjideaula

Got a lot of self-hating americans in the comments assuming "american food" means fast food. Go outside and actually look for good food, you'll find it.


SpaceSagittarius

Yall talking about american food as if its all cheap fast food ignorant af


BBQWengs

United States is nice because we have a melting pot of foods. So you can eat food from basically any country here.


Castiel_D37

Italy🇮🇹


rebecca9823

Thailand. And Sweden 🇸🇪 🇹🇭


Verehren

Italy or Greece


gautham_bhandari

U left india


Rvtrance

In the US we have great versions of all foods.


katac00k

Us.. Lol


dgroeneveld9

Everything you find in ant othe country can be found within a square mile grid of NYC. And in basically any town with a population above say 30k you'll find a huge spectrum of ethnic foods. Thus America is the best because we have it all.


misha1137

My small town under 10k has Indian, Greek, and four different regional varieties of Mexican food. And it's all good.


wigga245

US because it has basically anything you'd want if you go to the right place


zyyast

Only been to 4 of them and Spain is very far from having the best food here lmao


CaseroRubical

Lol where the fuck did you eat at in spain


kontorgod

why is that? I lived in Spain and the food was the best I've had
