    Re: good quality vs of good quality

    Both seem correct and natural. I think "I ate good quality food" is what you are most likely to hear in AmE.

    Re: good quality vs of good quality

    If I was going to say something was of better qulity, should I use the indefinite article here as in " ....of a better quality."?
