World's 50 Best Foods

CNN have rereleased a list of the world’s 50 best foods chosen by their readers and some of the inclusions might surprise you.

CNN themselves note the lack of French dishes to make their list, which was compiled by over 35,00 votes from food lovers back in 2011. The companys say it was recently reformatted and republished for 2017. 

Asia smashes the list with the top 10 dishes all coming from across the continent.

Number one on the list? In 10 guesses you would never get it, with beef Rendang from Indonesia taking the top spot. In fact Indonesia came in strong, also taking second position with Nasi goreng.

Less surprisingly, Sushi came in third on the list. The italians might not be too happy with number 47, however.
