FTFAJellied Eels...Like unagi, only gross

First, I laughed.

Then, I began to crave unagi.  I have no idea how many of those things I'm capable of eating because I've never reached the point of not wanting more.  Unagi and tuna (maguro) sashimi are two of my greatest weaknesses.

/One of the things I miss the most about living in California is having an apartment within walking distance of half a dozen sushi joints.  And, they were all pretty good.

My theory about why the British created the largest empire in history stems from their cuisine. The Spanish and French empires never really reached their potential because they have delicious food at home thus no real incentive to go overseas and when they did, they were real jerks to the locals since the locals didn't have food that (they felt) couldn't compare to home. The British, with their awful food, had a higher incentive to go out into the world to find better food to bring back. They were also nicer to the locals compared to the French and Spanish so they could keep eating the exotic food for longer, teaching them how to administrate their own countries so they can take time off of imperialism-ing to chow down on some matar paneer, dim sum or falafel.

Another site to put on my "do not click"-list.
Lazy, unresearched, paste-and-click buzzfeed-like garbage.

RaceDTruck: Haggis does not belong on this list.


Most of that shiat does not belong on the list. Bubble and squeak is great, haggis is at worst edible, black pudding is surprisingly good, and even spotted dick isn't awful. It's just unfortunately named.
Traditional British food is pretty good. There, I said it.

Yeah, yeah, laugh at the name, but the real spotted dick (not from a can) is very good.  It's also got a creamy glaze on top.  If you're ever in a pub that serves it, order it and see.

insertsnarkyusername: Jaden Smith First of His Name: Dunno what laverbread is but it looks like it'd be good on buttered toast.

Laverbread is basically a seaweed paste. It's super nutritious and free so you ate it to supplement your diet in the winter or when you couldn't afford anything else. This is one of those foods that are kind of gross tasting but kept people alive.

Hmm, laver is basically the kim of kimbap, so I guess it would be ok.

I've long suspected this myself.  "We liked the food so much, we took over the country."

North America, for instance, had...  corn.  And turkeys.  And lobster, which was considered such a poor man's food that there were laws against feeding it to your servants more than three times per week.  So screw those guys, that food's crap.  They want independence?  Yeah, sure, get outta here.

Australia had...  what does Australia have natively besides everything being scary and poisonous?


Kangaroo. Lean, tasty, and much better for the environment than beef, sheep or chicken.

Witchetty grubs. A moth larva than can be found under tree bark.

Sydney rock oysters, Moreton Bay bugs, Banana prawns, Barramundi, Coral Trout, Red emperor and many other ocean species.

aerojockey: I question the wisdom of eating lung meat from Britain--not a fan of soot


The UK had a Clean Air Act before the US did and that was to fix air quality problems in London.  Once they tapped the North Sea fields for gas there really isn't anyone doing things like heating with coal so the image of the UK being sooty or smoky is outdated.

The thing that strikes me about a lot of British cuisine I've seen is that how good it turns out depends on the quality of the ingredients used and the skill of the preparer.  And, yeah, I know this is true of any cuisine, but it seems especially true of British cooking.  Take a Yorkshire pudding.  Done well, it's a light, fluffy, lovely compliment to a meal.  Done wrong, it's a disgusting blob of greasy dough.

Meh - most of them aren't bad at all. This writer is certainly from the early 1990s, when "can you believe those wacky foreigners" articles were all over the place...I guess they still are.

Jaden Smith First of His Name: Haggis is fine. Marmite's fine. Human breast milk is pretty tasty, so the ice cream is probably good. Black pudding is good.

Dunno what laverbread is but it looks like it'd be good on buttered toast.

I grew up British. Dad loves jellied eels, steak and kidney pie, etc. Sister ate marmite sammiches like it was her job. Mom thinks the correct way to prepare anything is to boil it until colorless, tasteless, and mushy. All the while I was considered "a picky eater". You know, for having taste buds and whatnot.
