I would like to ask about the following verse from the Quran 2:61 :
And [recall] when you said, "O Moses, we can never endure one [kind of] food. So call upon your Lord to bring forth for us from the earth its green herbs and its cucumbers and its garlic and its lentils and its onions." [Moses] said, "Would you exchange what is better for what is less? Go into [any] settlement and indeed, you will have what you have asked." And they were covered with humiliation and poverty and returned with anger from Allah [upon them]. That was because they [repeatedly] disbelieved in the signs of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That was because they disobeyed and were [habitually] transgressing.
The "one kind of food" that is being referred to here is Manna and Quails. Is there any story / verse in the Tanach that is perhaps similar to this one? In which it tells about a Jew who were requesting other food other than Manna and Quails through Moses PBUH. Because I didn't get the part about why Manna and Quails were the better food. I didn't understand how did Moses PBUH knew that they were better? In what sense were they better?**
**I'm asking from the perspective of the Tanach.
