To qualify for this award, the lunch in question must be intentionally boring. Not just the product of outrageously bad kitchen skills.
And which culture produces this?
According to BI, the answer is Norway. Many Norwegians eat a “matpakke”. And I would agree that this is very, very boring. Basically, a few pieces of bread,, a wipe of butter or other spread, and a piece of something.
It is meant to be eaten without enjoyment.
Vox gets into the philosophy of this style of lunch. Minimalism, dude!
