Which country has the best cuisine?

I’ve just returned from India and while I was there, I spent four days learning how to cook Keralan cuisine… It was bliss – especially as I love Indian food!

Which country do you think has the best cuisine in the world?

Of course it depends on what you like, but for me, as always, Japan wins… Not only is the ‘cuisine’ stunning (kaiseki ryōri must be one of the most beautiful types of food you can set eyes on), but the everyday grub is almost universally good! This general level of quality is something I haven’t seen in many other places. Also, there’s a lot of specialisation – it’s pretty normal for a restaurant only to serve, say, one type of noodles, so they become experts at making them just right and take a lot of pride in their skills.

  • Rebecca, I have heard many great things about the cuisine in Japan. I would love to eat a hearty bowl of ramen with pork. But having visited Korea, I love Korean food. I had no idea there was so much you could do with kimchi. Kimchi has become part of a popular health food trend because it’s fermented and good for the digestive system. I also like fermented soybean soup, it’s like a miso. The soybean soup is hearty, delicious and healthy with greens and sometimes tofu. There are a variety of pancakes like a seafood or green onion pancake which tastes yummy with the chili paste. And no one can resist Korean barbecue, which is best eaten with fresh lettuce, rice, garlic and chili paste.

  • India! India! India! Best bread. Best rice. Best spices. Best drinks (lassi). Best entrées (poppadoms). Best beer (well, it’s alright anyway). When I’m in London, then Indian takeaway and restaurants are my favourite, and when I’m in India… Well, I’m very well fed :)

    Ooh, there’s an amazing Sri Lankan place in Wembley you have to try. It’s called Palm Beach. The decor is very basic but the food is amazing.

  • Lebanon. Great if you are a vegetarian, has fresh produce, good use of herbs and spices without being overpowering and fresh flavours such as lemon and mint.

  • For me, Japan wins this race. I went to Japan last summer and honestly, I expected to eat nothing but Sushi because that was all I knew when it came to Japanese Food. I was stunned by the variety of foods, the freshness and that everything came at a reasonable price! Even a simple sandwich or salad from 7eleven tastes better in Japan! My favorite Japanese dish is Okonomiyaki, a local dish in Osaka and Hiroshima. We also loved the traditional Buddhist cuisine that we tried in Koya-san. Overall, the Japanese cuisine made our Japan trip so much more exciting, because “eating” was such a great experience.
