    Food that is fresh, lacks obscene amount of preservatives, isn't full of vegetable protein, isn't deep fried/greasy (I don't have a gall bladder) and doesn't remind me of airplane food.

    Fresh seafood in the PNW was and is awesome, though.

    Might just be being somewhere new and not finding what's good, but the USA is the only country that's been an issue.

    Oh I'm sure there are great restaurants - I'd actually love to be wrong next time I'm over and be all like "damn, this is awesome" for as long as I'm there.

    But, so far, when a local is like 'yo, Matt, you gotta check this place out' it's usually not very tasty for me. Hence why the good food experiences have been rare for me.

    I'm confused, did you eat the hair or the burrito.


    Truth!


    He's pretty much right. The vegemite in the country doesn't hold a candle to the stuff from the motherland.

    No, they're just the high end of evil.

    There's a world of difference between massive chain restaurants, where the intent is to churn out a consistent product and take advantage of economies of scale, and local places where, sure, you order at a counter, pay $3 - $4 for your banh mi, and you get it in < 5 minutes, but they bake their own rice flour baguettes every morning and use a mix of fresh and house-pickled vegetables.

    lol. still laughing after imagining toasty pulling out the hair, kinda looking at it, and then eating it

    generalizing about food in the US as a whole doesn't make a lot of sense because it really varies depending on where you are. the US is a pretty big place. if you can't find good, fresh food in Houston or a city like that, that I can maybe understand. but if you're talking about not being able to find any in NYC or LA or something, I'll just say it's not the city's fault.

    No, he's Australian and it is still equally lolworthy. There's good and bad food in both countries. Pretty fucking obvious that one.

    P.s. what does "isn't full of vegetable protein" mean? You don't like legumes?

    POPEYES IS KING OF FAST FOOD
    Everything there is delicious and doesn't make me feel sick after eating it like at other places. Popeyes can be consumed sober or drunk. Every single person I've ever brought to Popeyes who have never had it before, instantly became addicted. Popeyes is nourishment. Popeyes is what you hope Heaven will taste like.

    weird example, Houston has a ton of good restaurants.

    My main pet peeve with food in the US isn't restaurants but supermarkets, especially when it comes to produce. Thankfully farmers markets seem to be growing in popularity. Also I seem to encounter either people who don't really care about food, and eat fast food way too regularly, or "foodies", who overthink and obsess about food to a strange degree. Also the bread here sucks, but that's something I gave up on long ago.
