The Taste Atlas tweet has garnered millions of eyeballs on Internet with over 40 million views and thousands of comments.
Many netizens felt that the list wasn’t accurate.
“This is a list you’d come up with if you’d never eaten food,” wrote one user.
“Hi, I think there’s been an error. England is on this list for some reason,” wrote another person.
“Absolute nonsense,” responded another user.
“I’ve travelled to 40/50 of these countries and I can tell you this is the most inaccurate list @TasteAtlas. You left off so many foodie countries like Morocco, Ethiopia, Myanmar, and many more. Including Lithuania and not Latvia or Estonia is just funny,” wrote a well-travelled user.
“Lebanon, Pakistan, Thailand, Jamaica should be in the top 10. How is England on the list? German food? What, kartoffelpuffer & bratkartoffeln?? How are people liking Bangladesh over Pakistan?! Too much stress in one tweet,” remarked another person.
