Reports say that an increasing number of British people are dumping national dishes in favor of Indian and Italian foods.
The survey conducted by tourism website iknow-uk.com showed that Britons are giving up English dishes like Welsh rarebit, toad in the hole, or bangers and mash for curry, pizzas and pastas.
AdvertisementAlmost four in 10 people said they love eating spaghetti bolognese, 24 per cent chose chili con carne, and a fifth named lasagne.
More than 90 per cent of the respondents said they eat Indian and Italian foods like curry, pizza and pasta at least once a week.
Shepherd's pie, a roast dinner or an English breakfast were mentioned by two per cent of the people surveyed.
"It's a huge shame that British dishes seem to be fading into obscurity," the Daily Express quoted Marcus Simmons of iknow-uk as saying.
