Hi Iulia20! Thanks for your comment. You mentioned the diversity of British food and in the video they talk about foods from around the world. Do you eat food from different countries too in Romania? What kind of food is popular nowadays?

I think that British food is a taste one...At least everybody must try that ...Including here british breakfast too....
However I must say that Albanian food is such a wonderful one .... You must try albanian's pie or Albanian traditional food .... They are awsomee

I think that british food is really tasty for the teens but it isn't healthy because it has only fried foods

In my country,Russia, borchs and okroshka are very polular. I like it,but i prefer spice dishes as well. A lot of russians drink black tea every day. You can see a bun of bread in each family. I rarely eat british dishes but if I was suggested the english breakfast - i would not refuced.

I think that british people don't have their own, traditional food. But food which Britannians are eating is very tasty and delicious that's why they like it very much and me too. :-)
