Going to Real World 2012: American food

It may sound strange to americans or health-conscious blog readers, but one reason I love to visit the USA, is the fast food. We have a few fast food chains here in Europe like McDonalds, Burger King, Subway, Pizza Hut, KFC and others. But we don't have Taco Bell, Charley's Grilled Subs, Wendy's, IHOP and The Waffle House here.

So on each trip to the states, I try to visit a few of them. Getting a few tacos or burritos from real mexican restaurants. Or getting a stack of fresh made pan cakes for breakfast. While you find quite a few slow food restaurants, like a good steak house, sometimes we prefer to stop at a fast food chain, especially late at night.

From the Royal Plaza Hotel, you can find most of the chains a little bit north of the hotel. Within a walk or drive of less than 1 km, you can find The Waffle House, Taco Bell, McDonalds, Uno Chicago Grill, Red Lobster, Chevys Frech Mex, Quizons, Subway, IHOP and Domino's Pizza.

I’m very happy to see that Taco Bell hasn’t invaded Europe (yet)! It’s hard to get worse “Mexican” food….
Three restaurants we always go to while in the US are: IHOP, Joe’s Crabshack and Morton’s.

Don’t forget TGI Friday and Joe’s Crab Shack.

While I know that fast food is not healthy and I bet that Taco Bell doesn’t make real good mexican food, we are still fascinated here about those fast food chains. We don’t have them here in our area, so they are very exotic to us.
