I don’t think it’s worse to eat Kangaroos (if there are a lot of them) than eating cows or pigs.
I guess Lutefisk is typically norwegian !
Dried cod lain in Lut and washed with water afterwards 1
I doesn`T eet it
Well in Laputa we usually eat- Oh wait… I don’t really live in Laputa …
-moments of sorrow-
Well in Wales we typically eat foreign(sp?) stuff like Pizza, Spaghetti Bolognese, etc, etc… But who doesn’t?
But traditional foods are made from leeks and crap like that -cringe-, we also have “Welsh Cakes” which is probably some copy of a rock cake, or a scone.
But only a small percentage of the population has eaten it though… I myself am one of those who have never ever tasted it.
Yeah , thats right !
This is pretty much what I eat every night, exept that gravy is a treat (Mum dosn’t believe in fake gravy. Mmmmm Gravox) Although this means when we do get gravy it’s the real deal.
I’d just like to settle one myth that’s floating around America Blooming Onion is NOT Australian, no one in Australia has even heard of it (exept those who have been to America or have talked to people who have been there) and when explained some people think it sounds pretty good, a lot of people find the thought disgusting, so what you get in an “Auzzie” is not what we actually eat.
As for fast food over here, McDonalds is going strong, along with many other food chains Hungry Jacks (Burger King to you) KFC, Subway. And of course the Australian Fish and Chips (much more Australian than that bloomin Blooming Onion)
Kangaroo is not a main food but there is a push to have it put onto the market as they are becoming a pest and while they look like cute fluffy animals (Well they still are) Kangaroo males box, and when they do it to a human it can do some serious damage. Buffalo is to tough, and we’ve almost managed to get rid of them (Another Australian pest). There’s also a push for camels to becaome food as they’re starting to get overpoulated.
(Don’t eat buffalo)
Hm, Shinkuju’s gotta lotta… …interesting snack foods 2 choose from a buncha shops, as well as a nice variety of sushi bars .
i had shirmp paella
i from manchester in uk
I tried lutefisk this christmas. It was horrible. Like eating a loogie.
Traditional swedish food (husmanskost) consists mostly of potatoes.
Boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, raw-steaked potatoes…
With this comes meat (meatballs or pork, for example ) or fish (mostly herring or cod).
Swedish food is often accused of being very fat and “heavy” food. With some dishes you eat lingonberry jam (I’ve never understood the point of that). Gravy too.
A dish that a lot of kid’s dislike is pea soup url=https://www.coolabah.com/ausblog/marie/sps0502.jpg[/url] . It’s a soup made of peas and pork. Or something. I’m not a huge fan of it.
One thing that suprised me as a child was swedes eating pancakes for lunch, because that’s not how you eat them in Finland. I’ve always seen pancakes as dessert or a snack after school.
On midsummer’s eve, it’s very common to eat bread, potato and herring. Then drink a couple of snaps, with drinking songs of course.
As a dessert, strawberries.
I don’t know if it’s because I live in Stockholm, or if it’s so in the rest of Sweden too, but people tend to eat a lot of international dishes. Pasta, wok, mexican…
Examples of fast foods you can find here are:
hot dogs, pizza, kebab, sushi, wok, hamburgers (yes, we have McDonald’s…).
I can’t believe no Canadian has mentioned POUTINE
Mmmmmm, that’s my favorite national meal.
Basically it’s fries, or chips as we sometimes call them, with mozzarella cheese on top, then gravy is added which melts the cheese. It’s common in restaurants and chip stands and it makes a good snack…even fast food restaurants like McDonald’s offer it here, although it’s not very good compared to home-made poutine.
Lobster is also a nice treat , and since hunting and fishing is very popular here, a lot of people I know eat fish and venison during the summer.
That one is pretty common here also.
Traditional english food… Theres the Sirloin steak, a steak which has actually been knighted by some barmy king… Fish and Chips, the standard friday night meal… Parmo’s. Native to middlesbrough, people only a few miles out of town won’t have heard of em… And, we come to… APPLES. An apple a day keeps the doctor away… Finally, Custard, the ONLY TRUE british sauce. Not many brits know that…
In Slovakia , we have a meal called “bryndzove halusky”.
It’s some kind of dumplings with sheep cheese called bryndza. It’s usually served with bacon. You gotta try it

nice and healthy there
It’s a bit different in Kansas (but hey, as a state we are crazy).
Being wheat country we ‘traditionally’ eat a whole lot of breads. Wheat pancakes, wheat rolls, wheat bread, wheat pizza, wheat cookies, and on and on.
That, and a lot of barbequed meat (though that could just be my impression from living in KC ).
For dessert though…Kansas Dirt. Tastes a lot better than it sounds.
I haven’t read the entire topic, so I don’t know if anyone has mentioned this, but in sweden (mostly in the northern part of the country I beleve) there is a tradition of eating fermented herring, “Surströmming”.
It’s basically herring that has been sealed up in a tin can until it rots and builds up a pressure of stinky fart gas.
When it’s opened, an awful smell of death sprays out and stinks up the whole neghbourhood.
It’s known as one of the smelliest foods in the world.
I’ve never smelled it, but it’s said to be really nasty.
I recall that EU tried to ban it once, because they thought it was unsafe.
Haha, I’ve heard that they tried to ban tar pastilles (like Tervaleijona)…
I just enjoyed some wonderful homemade Cuban Caldozo. It’s a soup made with Yuca, Calbaza (squash), pork, potatoes, garlic, onons, cumin, salt, and other ingredients depending on the cook. It is sooooo delicious.
My favorite though is called Ropa Vieja, which means “old clothes.” It is a dish prepared with Stringed beef made with lots of garlic and red peppers. It is usually accompanied by morros y cristianos (moors and Christians) which is rice with black beans and yuca and platanos maduros which are fried bananas.
The stuff that dreams are made of…
EU tried to ban our traditional Polish meal called Bigos (fonetic spelling)
Its a kind of lettuce that is being prepared, in until it gets a brown color. It includes a few kinds of meats and vegetables. I like it ! It’s great
They wanted to ban it, because it is good to eat for even 7 days from preparing, if you keep it in the fridge, and then boil it again, and again.
BTW, I’m not good at cooking
