    Compared to the majority of the countries I have been to, it seems like so many people here don't season their food. And by seasoning I don't even mean just spices; herbs and even salt and pepper are underused in many dishes. I went to Fridays and ordered a steak, which turned out to be the driest, most tasteless stake I have ever tasted. I added salt and pepper and covered it with Jack Daniels sauce to make it edible. Fridays was much better when I had it abroad.

    A number of other European countries are the same when it comes to food. It's the Mediterranean European countries that have great cuisines.

    I love roasts, pie and mash, and other traditional British dishes when they are home-cooked by someone who knows how to season. They're rarely good when eaten at a restaurant though.

    I love all kinds of food, honestly, I enjoy British food just as much as I enjoy Asian foods.

    I rarely ever dislike food/not enjoy them.

    Cut the bs, you don't need good-tasting food. Eat food regardless of taste. Man or woman the forkk up.

    Food is overrated*
