Well in Laputa we usually eat- Oh wait... I don't really live in Laputa cry ...

-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.

'traditional' dutch food is potatoes, meat and vegetables. Preferably with gravy over the potatoes, which you first will mash with your fork. Then put the gravy over it, then mix it with the vegetables and eat it like that.


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)

Traditional swedish food (husmanskost) consists mostly of potatoes.
Boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, raw-steaked potatoes...

With this comes meat (meatballs or pork, for example lachgroen) 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.
http://www.algonet.se/~potomkin/presentation/receptpa mat/husmanskost/recept/algstek.jpg

A dish that a lot of kid's dislike is pea soup (ärtsoppa) . 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. siiw

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 yes, and since hunting and fishing is very popular here, a lot of people I know eat fish and venison during the summer.

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

Local Fast Food - All the American fast food places you can think of
Generally Eat - A common meal for me is Swiss steak, Mashed poatoes and greeen beens. But I usually eat alot of different things, there isn't really a constant.

Snacks/Desserts - KitKat Bar, Reeses CUp, M&M's, ice cream, english toffe, cake


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 smile ).

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.
