    People Ranked A Bunch Of Popular Foods From Around The World, And The Results Are Interesting

    Is Lumpiang Shanghai ACTUALLY the best Filipino food?

    Recently, TasteAtlas shared a bunch of polls to find out how popular foods around the world ranked among food fans. This included foods within specific countries as well as general foods like "rice dishes" between different countries.

    Using a poll system that included a ranking from 1 "I hate it" to 5 "I love it," they were able to collect data from over a hundred thousand votes — excluding any "local/patriotic or fake" votes (which they could figure out with AI).

    And, honestly, I'm curious if you'll agree with these results. Check 'em out...
