    I don't know much about British food, but traditional British beers are splendid.

    I rarely drink any alcohol, but If British beer turns up in a shop, I buy it.

    I have little interest in British cuisine since most of it is meat based and unhealthy.

    Definitely traditional British food is boring and limited - it reflects what can grow here. The new stuff are pretty good tho (I think they called it, collectively, as "modern European").

    I don't think it's boring, but as it doesn't tend to rely on lots of spices for flavouring I think it's more sensitive to poor quality ingredients and cooking. I'm currently living in America and really miss a lot of the foods I would normally eat back home.

    You cant steal food from other nations and pass it of as British

    Except what we call Indian/Italian/Chinese etc cuisine bears little resemblance to authentic food from those places. We've taken it and made it our own. Chicken tikka masala being a classic example of something inspired by international cuisine but in of itself is a British creation.

    We're one of the few countries on Earth that routinely has food from all different corners of the world and we've been doing this so long that there's little you can really point to and say "that's is purely British food".

    But if you're going to move the goalposts to suit your biases then I still disagree, British food is not boring or limited.

    Bacon sandwiches. Just sayin'.

    But yeah, British cuisine is not internationally renowned but it's not bad either. It has become far better in recent years thanks to increased immigration (TSR nationalists, come at me).

    No because it's a part of my culture. I can see how outsiders would find it boring though, it doesn't have the vivid appearance or smell that foreign cuisine has
