People obviously don’t check into hospitals for the food, but a good meal might speed up the road to recovery.

What is served at hospitals varies by country, and seems deeply ingrained in local culture. From nasi goreng rice in Indonesia to bangers and mash in the UK, here’s what hospitals around the world serve their patients.
