Mmmm 20 NEW Worst Foods in America | Eat This, Not That makes you hungry lol!!
So now the important questions?
Can you get a good curry?
Is the beer any good?
If anyone goes to the US, you need to try and find a yard house. They literally have over 100 beers on draught from around the world.
For me it was a yard of Hoegaarden!
I go to Texas regular as one of my sons lives there and I have to say the Mexican food is fabulous. I never used to like Mexican food before I went but the authentic stuff you get there is out of this world. The only thing I truly miss while there is a decent cup of tea...........
I still class American food as the worst food in the world then again I must be one of the few people who lives in America for a while and actually manages to lose weight. Bearing in mind that I was shopping in supermarkets and not really eating out that much - the eating out experience is fairly good and the customer service is generally excellent - much better than over here and I did quite like Wal-Mart.
I ended up living on a diet which basically consisted of nothing but vegetables, salad and fruit and even then a lot of that tasted a bit strange. I tried loads of products and gave up in the end because whilst they looked ok in the packaging as soon as they entered my mouth I could only think "yuck". Hersheys chocolate... what is that? lol, Kool-aid... umm, I like the colour... that's about it, chicken soup which has... 1 piece of chicken in it? Peanut butter which was so greasy, I didn't expect everything to be the same, I'd eaten food from loads of different places and it's always different... but this was generally a bit nasty.
I don't think it's the amount of fat people in the US which really shocked me, it was the size of those who happened to be fat - they are huge.
I'm not a huge fan of American food either, I know you can get good stuff (never had problems eating well in New York!) but in general the food culture seems to rely far more on fast food than here, and the food is usually bigger and greasier. And everyone seems obsessed with cheese!
The beer is... OK. Too cold & fizzy (and that's just the ales).
On a serious note, I've always enjoyed eating out in the States. There's a huge variety of stuff out there reflecting the mix of cultures, though they could do with reducing the portions. Once had a "breakfast" chilli in Santa Barbara which went down very well despite it being before 07:00 am (though it could have had more to do with my still being on GB time).
You can get great food in America but not in many places, every time i've been if you order a salad with dressing it's swimming in it. Oh and they serve steak with sponge cake base, what's that all about?
