Best thing on the menu is carne asada chips...fried tortilla chips topped with cheese, guacamole, and carne asada. Add in some hot sauce and oh boy...



Here is the carne asada chips...not from 'berto's but someplace similar in SD - oofff


yes yes i was going to mention Roberto's in La Jolla.
when I was attending UCSD , we used to go there late night and get their 3-rolled tacos w/ guac.

ohhhhh, remembering that gives me fond memories. they were so greasy and so crispy and chewy inside.
it hit the spot and an hour later you are in the toilet.

Dunno if it's already been mentioned, because I can't be fucked to read the whole thread, but one word:

Whataburger.

It never closes, the portions are huge, it's made to order with fresh ingredients, you can get just about anything you could want on your burger, the fry boxes stand up on a table, the ketchup comes in a little box that you can dip the fries right into, they have a huge menu, and, of course, if you time it right you can experience the legend that is the A1 Thick and Hearty Burger.

Man... I'm just getting memories of going to la jolla and san diego. I was there for a week during an internship and we visited another intern who was placed in san diego because she lives in la jolla. Her apartment complex was amazing. So different from things on the east here. California was relaxing...

A Five Guys opened up right across the street from me in Atlanta...I really like it, for a burger joint.

As a fake crabmean connoiseur (well, all crabmeats, fake and real), i can tell you that the pictured is one of the best fake crabmeat brands out there. It's usually made from fish with flavorings -- mostly pollack, from what I undersatnd.

Didn't the conventional wisdom about Taco Bell use to be that even if you eat the beef, you're not eating the beef?

Wow, never thought I'd see this again. I had it about four years ago at a McDonalds about an hour outside Amsterdam. I assume to shield us from "crappy ethnic food" my bus stopped a few times at McDonalds. Having the McKroket was my attempt at sticking to my "local food only" rule whenever I travel. I had my friend take a picture of me eating it before I took a bite since no one could explain to me what the hell it was. If my memory serves me, the patty was actually hollow inside with bits of beef, a mustard-like sauce, and some sort of vegetable. One bite was all I needed...and it went straight to here: Another McAbroad adventure was the McEmmentaler (a chunk of deep fried Swiss served as a patty on as sandwich) and breaded/fried broccoli with a cheese sauce, both in the Czech Republic. There's a chain in the UK called Chicken Cottage which is what KFC would be if it were abroad and owned by Arabs. One night after drinking with the fellas we ended up trying their lamb burger. It was actually great although I've been tempted to go back to see if I'd have the same experience only this time without the alcohol. Their chicken was slightly suspect as my friend couldn't identify what body part he was eating:

F&B Gudt Food - cheap but good hot dogs. Satisfying $4.50 lobster & shrimp rolls

It used to be the same way in Spokane. I was like "WTF is Sonic" till earlier this year, when they built one on Division. Caused some controversy because we had an excelent local burrito joint called Sonic Burritos that was here for years. Sonic fast food gave them a siest and desist notice within days of the burger joint opening in our town. As far as my favorites, I like Wendys, Taco Johns, and a lot of the Taco Trucks around here. In Japan, its Mos and Freshness burger for me (MMMmmmm)

I ate in a Japanese chain in Singapore called "Pepper Lunch". Its a fastfood steak joint where your slab of steak, or chicken or salmon or whatever, is served raw on a hot metal plate with side veggies and rice. I liked it a lot actually. Here's some pictures from their website:

Not sure I could trust a fast food chain in Singapore to not give me some parasite (fasciola hepatica comes to mind) from uncooked steak.
