American food?

Post by Carpe Diem » Sat, 27 Aug 2005 11:03 pm

Just went to Dan Ryans for dinner, I found the place and food quite nice, it did remind me the times when I was living on the other side of the Ocean...

Any recommendation for places offering good and genuine American food?

To SMS and others US citizens: yes, the post is mine, although I am French I am able to enjoy the genuine American food (McDonalds is definitely not genuine). I know, that must sound weird... :wink:

McDonald's caters to the local taste. So does KFC. anyone tried the vegetarian burger in Nepal? or there was never such a thing?

CD, damn busy day today,

Anyway, I find "American Food" to be somewhat a misnomer. Unless we're talkin' hotdogs, hogies, submarine sandwiches, po-boys, etc. Otherwise all our food is from European origins or in the Southwest, Tex-Mex. Yes, if we include Tex-Mex then fine, we're in agreement. Otherwise I find everything so "meat & potatoes" and rather bland. Maybe that's why I like Asia so much. I eat Chili Padi like a Thai or Indonesian. I love spices, curries, sambals anything hot & spicy.

Fresh steamed oysters, shrimp and grits, mustard or vinegar based BBQ - the American food I want I can't get here.

How about Jerry's Barbecue?

Or Black Angus?

Or Califonia Pizza Kitchen?

I wouldn't consider any of these outstanding but you may want to give them a try.
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.
