I would like to try Italian food because I like cheese, but the British breakfast caught my attention because I love bacon.

When I were in London I saw that all people just eat fast food. So, I dont think that British national food is well spread and iI dont have a chance to tast it. But I think that it can be really tasty;)

I really like Italian food, but this doesn't mean that I don't like the food of other cultures. For exemple , I really like Japanese and Mexican food. British food I think is very good, for what I have tasted. There are many varieties of food, from fish and chips, soup of the day to jacket potatoes. One thing I really like about British food are scrambled eggs with bacon, very often on Sunday I have breakfast with these foods and they are really delicious.

I don't mind British food. Food like sausages or fish and chips is really tasty. I don't like sweets or cakes with too chocolate. I prefer Italian food like pizza or spaghetti. They are really delicious!

I've never eat British food, but I'm curious to taste it in the future. But I think it's not as good as Italian food.

I tasted english food and i didn't like it. I think English cooking consists of putting many foods on one plate. I love italian food. Every time I travel abroad, I know new cultures and it is beautiful but I always miss my grandmother's pasta with the sauce.

I really like Italian food, instead I don’t like most food from other countries for example Chinese, Thai, Mexican, Japanese… I have already been in England and I mainly ate street food but there were a lot of restaurants of all nationalities. I think I would like only some English food like Sunday Roast, bacon and sausages, because I like meat, chocolate cakes, chips without fish because I don’t like it. I’d like to try the Afternoon Tea with my friends.

I've never eaten food in Britain, but every morning I drink tea for breakfast and my parents often make fish and chips and I love it!

Hi everyone ! I'm from Vietnam and I am quite fat haha. Because I am voracious, sometimes I also envy with my younger sister's meal. So when I watch this video, I feel hungry and want to enjoy these foods immediately. I see that some chefs seem to be professional !

The food in England has many characteristics of Eastern Countries. It's an interesting place to explore food from different countries and learn a lot from them. Therefore, I love food in Britain

Your video is so wonderful! I really like it! I haven't eaten British food yet but thanks for this video, I found that the cuisine here is extremely diverse with each dish bearing a unique feature of a cultural region. It also looks very delicious and fantastic. I hope that if I have a chance to go there, i will directly enjoy the taste of those dishes.

Hi guys, I'm from Viet Nam, so I'm learning about your culture and cuisine so that I can easily study and understand the culinary culture.
Your and my culinary culture is different a lot. I think my cuisine is more simple than your cuisine but i feel british food is very tasty and fantastic. British food looks very delicious and has got many different types of food.
I will learn more and one day I would like to introduce my country's culinary culture.

Britain - mix of the culture from different countries and food is not an exception! So in Britain you can taste food of countries which are not well-known (but also very delicious).
If you want to taste meals from other countries, you must to visit Britain
