    When I was in Kosovo there was usually a bottle of ketchup on the table at restaurants but I always just assumed it was for french fries. Little did I know... :shifty:

    Looks awful. They tried to make it look better for putting the branch of some christmas tree in it. But nope.

    Talking about bad looking food:



    Yes, the honeycomb looking thingies are bits of intestine.

    Well, intestine rolls can only look bad. But yes, it tastes very nice.

    There are a bunch of traditional meat pies in British/Irish cuisine. Corned beef and cabbage is also an old time meal
    No, they likely are not. Usually the honeycomb looking stuff is tripe which is made from chopped pieces of cow stomach. I will, on occasion, have menudo which is made using the honeycomb tripe. The black sauage in that picture is probably blood sausage, the other sausage looks like kielbasa, and it all appears to be in a tomato based broth.

    BTW intestines look completely different from the homeycomb tripe. Just FYI.

    You heathen, how dare you malign a full English Breakfast :)

    Traditional British food is my favourite after pizza.

    Do you like BDSM by any chance?

    Voted for middle eastern option.

    Cambodian and Malaysian blows Chinese and Japanese out if the water. You're all heretics.

    I would like to throw Georgian food into the ring. It is a fusion of Mediterranean, Turkish and Slavic kitchen. In Georgia there is a bright variety of climatic zones, so many kinds of vegetables are native to their kitchen. E.G. it is said that the cultivation of winegrapes originates from that area.

    I once went on vacation to Scotland. We had a free cooked breakfast every morning at the hotels. At first it was great, after a week or so, my stomach felt so heavy, and I was desperate for something not greasy, even porridge done the Scottish way (with salt)!!
    I'm not sure what is the most unhealthy breakfast, a full cooked English breakfast or an American breakfast (toasted bagels and doughnuts)!
    The worst breakfast for me is a motel continental breakfast, a sad looking croissant and a small yogurt, oh boy!

    Sort of a fusion between UK fish and chip shop, NZ fry up and Malaysian.

    I would venture to say that American breakfast is less healthy, but not so much for the food as what you do afterwards. You can eat a full English breakfast and then go off to spend ten hours in a factory hitting bits of metal with a hammer, but a breakfast of donuts doesn't prepare you for much except sitting down until lunchtime. The former isn't good for you, but we can imagine a lifestyle to which it is appropriate, but the latter, not so much.
