By no means definitive, tastiness rating system
Ballsie, yes, but I am going to rate each country as I go along, out of 5. 1 Shite food - had to cack it up 2 Sustenance - Might trade for a nutrient pill if I was in a hurry 3 Tasty but forgetable 4 On the road to greatness - roughly amazing food 5 Holy Food - Would die for a bite, literaly
