Yeah, I don't object to the fact that American cuisine is invading other countries, I object to American culinary exports being junk food.
What specifically US dishes would you like to see exported? I mean, that would be different from local foods?
I have to say, the fast food exports we get from you guys, plus descriptions of the food, and a lot of the recipes I see posted here, I find very unattractive.
I loved the food in New York and Washington....but the variety was little different from what I can get here, and we lived, really, on Asian and Middle eastern. And Italian...had some fabulous lunches.
The specifically US stuff I had was a clam chowder (not a good example of it I guess, since I found it very tasteless), soft-shell crab, which was nice, and muffiny things...they weren't called muffins...that were served as breakfast every morning in Washington. They were ok, but to me, impossible to stomach in the morning.
The delicatessen was way cool! There was more of it, and more variety.
Had a famous New York pretzel, from a stand. Ptooey! Tasteless and inedible.
Tried a New York hot dog too....ptooey ditto...
I am really interested in the kind of food you would recommend that is specifically US.
I don't like Mexican food, even after a number of attempts, though it may be way different in the states (and in Mexico, of course!)
