  1. What is american food anyway? Serious question. It seems most american food is just “americanized” foreign food anyway….I cant think of original american recipes.

  2. In Hong Kong they had a burger at McDonald’s with rice cakes instead of buns. It was the “Fan-tastic burger” because “fan” means rice.

    I also ordered a shake but couldn’t fathom why seaweed or garlic were the only flavors. Ended up with a bag of fries with seaweed seasoning. The “shake shake fries” were pretty addictive.

  3. Donuts in China are made of white bread doe. Bland. Pizza in China is sweet. Steak is often served covered in molten cheese. Basically, Western food in China tastes exactly like what Chinese people think Western food should taste like.

    They also put corn and cucumbers on a pizza.
