UK makes the list with Fish & Chips. (hold on while I act shocked)
Canada makes the list with Poutine & Maple Syrup. (was there ever any doubt)
Australia makes the list with Chicken Parmesan. (Australia has chickens?)
Italy makes the list with Lasagna & Pizza. (again, hold on while I act shocked)
USA makes the list with Popcorn, Donuts & Ketchup. (stay classy, America)
Hong Kong makes the list with French Toast. (I don't know about you, but when I think Hong Kong ... I think French Toast. :? )

Ketchup is a 'Best Food'?? Where the fuck is bacon, or scrapple for that matter? Sausage gravy, crab cakes?? Fuck that list.

Agree with you 100% on bacon.
Sausage gravy and crab cakes are to regional to make a world list.
And what about apple pie? Are you telling me apple pie couldn't make that list! Or Chili? Or steak!

OK, to go further: Chicken Parm from Aussie-land? WTF? Just because they rendered a cheap ass version of the Veal Parmesana that the Italians came up with centuries earlier? Hong Kong for French Toast? Let's face it, most everything edible is either French, Italian, African or Chinese, and everyone else just stole the idea from those 4 places. Oh, and 'regional'. Poutine isn't 'regional'?? 95% of the world has never seen it, let alone tasted it. Hell, fish and chips is regional or at least ethnically limited. And, popcorn is about as ridiculous an American idea as I could imagine. At least give us credit for potato chips(Saratoga Springs, NY in the 1870s, pissed off chef at work).

Oi fuck you buddy dont go knocking the Parma talk smack about it down here you are liable to up in hospital :lol: the WA wankers call them Parmies for some reason its why they are separated to the west side of the country the savages. And cool tank on it is the Baden Powel hotel on victoria st they go all out and make the chicken piece themsleves not as large as others but thicker then its topped with prosciutto and diced tomatoes and red onion. And seriously fish and chips are regional every state and molst likely town has a fish anc chip shop here i have 3 within 1km 8-)
