    Considering that the British diet is so multi-cultural and a lot of our signature dishes have their origins in other cultures and countries, it's hard to quantify.

    British food? You mean fish and chips?
    Fish and chips one of the few British dishes that is great to have cooked for you when you eat out. When you add mushy peas and tartar sauce it's perfect.

    But I meant other dishes such as roasts, pies, cottage pie, toad in the hole and so forth.

    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.
    This is one of my greatest fears to move to Uk. All the people I know that have been there says the food is practically tasteless. And dear god if it's true I will be suffering very much there. I'm from Venezuela (a Latin American country) and we season our food a lot! And I think particularly my family more, because my dad is Jordan and my mom is Cuban, so every day I eat, Arabic food or Cuban food or Venezuelan.. and most of the days a combination hahaha. My friends love to come to my house just to eat my parent's dishes, so food it's a big deal in my family
