We think of the Italians when we eat pasta, the Chinese with noodles and lugaw, the Koreans with Kimchi, the Mexicans with tortillas, the US of A with burgers, the French with frog's legs (honestly?!) and the Germans with frankfurters.

But then a lot of non-british in Britain think that really, there's no variety of food here. Every town and county are saturated with Chinese and Indian take-aways and fish and chip shops. You can't go to Thailand and say, hey we have fish and chips in Britain, isn't that cool?

But what about boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, microwaved potatoes, baked potatoes, fried potatoes, roast potatoes...

Whoever said there's no variety in British food should be repatriated!

LOL! It's funny, because I don't think the average 'British' family really eat 'British' food (whatever that is anyway). For example my average dinners for a week would be something like:

Chilli Con Carne and Rice,
Roast chicken, roast potatoes, veggies.
Chicken curry and rice.
Spaghetti Carbonara.
Fajitas and Potato wedges...

I mean Britain's favourite dish is curry! Curry!? Culturally diverse hehe.
