Don’t understand the snobbery around food (each to their own and all that). Also how foreigners look down on food in this country…must be going to the wrong places because with immigration, you have pretty much all you can ask for…(especially in major cities). admittedly standards of pizza, Chinese and Thai food can vary a lot more here but just find a restaurant that has a lot of good reviews…if you go to big standard chains, of course it’s going to be a bit meh.
l’ve eaten all kinds of cuisine from your expensive fine dining to your basic stuff. Sometimes a good baked beans on toast with cheese on top or a fry up is just the ticket. Yum, yum.
