    Re: miscellaneous

    Both are correct.

    The first is specific = what is the food you eat like there.
    The food we got was excellent and nutritious.

    The second is general = It could mean how easy is it to get food or what is the nature of food in that country.
    In X food is based on vegetable products rather than animal products.
