If it weren't for the fact that I don't like cheese, I'd ask for a double. I like their style. Rather than telling each person to be health conscious, they tell them to live to the fullest, even if it meant an 8K meal. Although I got to admit, that is just death waiting to happen...

Quoting Zentraedi (Reply 21): The one thing that gets me everytime I go back to the States is the constant clamor for quantity over quality. You see it everywhere.
It especially gets me when Americans hold their food on a pedestal. Coming back to the States, I get asked how I like "real food" as opposed the "cat food" over there. The food I eat in Japan is usually of a higher standard than the bulk, over-processed, feces ridden, ammonia-washed "real food" in the States.
Another thing that bothers me is how I come across grown, adult men in the US who says things like "I don't eat vegetables. Well, maybe potatoes, but nothing green." Not only that, but they say it with pride!
WTF?!? I'm thinking, "Huh, are you 5 years old or something?"
Then there's tofu. There are lots of great dishes with tofu. In fact, lots of great dishes that contain BOTH tofu and meat. However, if I mention "tofu" outside of any metro area, I get dirty and almost hostile looks from people. WTF?
Walk together, talk together all ye peoples of the earth. Then, and only then, shall ye have peace.

McD's used to use lard to fry their fries way back before they switched to other oils, and yes, I think many of us who remember mc'd fries and others can tell a difference. Gawd I remember burgers with the buns oiled and grilled like that. Takes me way back. It seems every non chain b urger place serves a 'fancy' type of bun that is not grilled. but I remember those, how it would crunch when you'd bite it and the juicy burger.
You dont HAVE to have a 4 pattie burger, be in moderation and have a triple well, I ll just have a double. Do they serve real strawberry shakes? mmmm
