American Food

So many American foods to try, so many of them disgusting.

Hot dog from Skoobys in Hollywood

3lb breakfast burrito

P1070332

 

Steak for me, ribs for Mr Beet

P1070448

 

Blueberry pancakes

P1070365

 

Meatloaf and mash

P1070378

 

Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory.  I also sampled the highly-recommended cheesecake from Junior’s in New York.  I still maintain that I make the world’s best cheesecake.

Reese’s pieces – bleurgh

P1070387

 

Inspired by BeetFan – taco soup in an edible bowl

P1070390

 

A triumvirate of retro-sounding American snacks.  Pretty grim all round.

Barbecued chicken, corn, beans and potato salad.  Consumed while listening to a country band on 4th July.  As American as it gets.

P1070683

 

More barbecue – pulled pork, beans, potato salad and corn bread.  Corn bread is essentially sponge cake.  I can’t understand why they think it goes well with pork.

Philly steak and cheese sandwich.  Look at the calories on that.

P1070863

 

Gumbo – but from the shores of Lake Michigan rather than New Orleans so of dubious authenticity.

P1070875

 

Chicago deep-dish pizza.  Basically, it’s not a pizza.

P1070876

 

Huge NY deli sandwich – pastrami with a pickle.  Its appearance delighted me more than its taste.

 

P1080031

 

Frozen yoghurt.  They charge by weight.  That tub cost about $12.

P1070961

 

Bagel with a shmear.

P1080024

 

I should be on a big diet now, but there is so much nice British food to eat: Mum’s shepherd’s pie, full English breakfast, fish and chips, pie and mash, roast dinner.  They’ve all been ticked off in the five days since my return.
