    Re: What's / How's russian food like

    The main difference - "How is ... like?" is ungrammatical (incorrect) English?

    What is Russian food like?
    How does Russian food taste/look?
    How was your Russian food? (This means "Did you enjoy the Russian food you ate?")
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I found Russian food... not very.... well, that was in 1987. I'm sure it's better by now.

    Re: What's / How's russian food like

    You could say, "What is Russian food like?" This would be the most common and natural way for a native speaker to verbalize this.

    You can not say "How is Russian food like?" This format simply does not exist in English.

    However, this is where it gets a bit tricky! You can use "how" for more specific questions. For example, "How is Russian food different from Polish food?" or "How do you like Russian food?" (Answer: "I like it very much!" or "I don't like it at all!")

    Good luck!
