    So I've just got back from the dining room after yet another Roast Beef Sunday tea.

    This got me thinking, why am I actually eating this?
    I don't like it, it just tastes bland and isn't healthy in any way.

    So I've been thinking of any English food that I do actually like and I'm struggling...

    I would much rather be eating Portuguese, Spanish, Italian or Indian cuisine, not only because its healthier but it just tastes so, so much nicer.

    It would be interesting to find out if anyone actually agrees with me when I say I don't like English food.

    I like any well sourced food that is expertly prepared. If your beef didn't taste of anything then it was probably factory farmed crap.

    I agree. The British are gastronomic dunces.

    Sounds like it's just not a very good sunday lunch to be honest :p:

    There's nothing wrong with English food in itself, but the attitude to food in the UK seems to make that it's crap a lot of the time...

    I agree mostly, but I do really like sweet English stuff (puddings, chocolate, sweets, biscuits). I don't know why our food's so bland, but in my opinion French food is just as bland and rubbish. Interesting.

    I kinda agree, the moment you ask for a "FULL English Breakfast", you might aswell drink a jug of cooking oil lol. There's this cafe here who does a deep fried sliced bread and deep fried Mars bar ice cream...... HEALTHY!

    Alot of English people make chicken tikka masala and other indian foods at home now. They've adopted the dishes. You're less likely to get food poisoning as well
