The World’s Best Countries for Food

the world's best countries for food - thai soup

I always seem to get in heated (all in good fun of course) debates with fellow travelers about which countries have the best food. Sure, there’s the no brainers like Thailand, Italy and France, but beyond those countries, things start to go sour.

Lonely Planet recently came up with a list of “The Best Countries for Food,” and I think I might agree with them (although I haven’t been to all the countries mentioned). I was most surprised to see Greece included as its culinary scene has often received very mixed sentiments.

And the country I was surprised to see not listed? Singapore. Doesn’t LP know there’s been a gastronomic renaissance going on there for the past several years? Oh well, maybe next year Singapore.
