My family likes to go to PF Changs, so I usually go with them when they go. But whenever I go there I kind of feel like I'm breaking some sort of rule. I guess because it seems so strangely un-chinese. But then when I eat it, it tastes kind of good in it's own way, but I feel kind of guilty.

Now was that early Outback or late Outback, because I thought the foodicality of the early Outback had a lot of integrity.

Yeah, that was duck PF, doesn't it look like steak?

Haha, I feel the same way. My sisters absolutely love PF Chizzle's, so whenever they're in town we eat there. I tend to get the "Buddha's Feast" and order it to be extra spicey and fried. I love it, but it causes me deep personal shame.

Ditto on the Outback, haven't been there in ages but it remains a guilty pleasure. Same with Olive Garden.

In related news, I had an insane craving for a McD's Quarter Pounder w/ Cheese this week. After eating it I felt sated but also disgusted with myself, as if I just had an adulterous encounter.

Maybe it's all the boomerangs, surfboards and "wombat crossing" signs on the walls, but the food has nothing to do with Australia other than the naming: Alice Springs Chicken, Jackaroo Chops, Bloomin Onion, Aussie Fries, etc.

The food's fine (hard to go wrong with steak-n-fries) It's just theme-eating where the food itself is more Cajun spiced than anything--there's just nothing particularly Australian about the food they serve.

Kangaroo, ostrich, crocodile, Foster's beer, and Thomas' English muffins. They have nooks and crannies.

An institution in Australia, a "hamburger with the lot" is an Aussie take on its American counterpart.

The famed burger is served in pubs, fish & chip shops and restaurants around the country. It usually consists of a juicy beef patty in a bun served with with cheese, sliced tomato, sliced, canned beetroot, onions, lettuce, bacon and an egg. Some versions are served with a slice of pineapple for that extra flavor of summer.



Hold the beets and pineapple, and I'm into it!

I have to say (because of the area I live in) PIZZA!

Love a good slice, but the best in our area is Papa Johns. I eat it, enjoy it, then wish I could find a decent slice place.

I don't respect any of my food. I cook it up and eat it.

I was considering putting fried and runny eggs on my hotdogs this morning. I wonder how that would've turned out? It sounded tasty like anything with a nice fried runny egg on it.

Foie gras is one of those things -- I get why it's so appealing, but it's just sensually overwhelming for me, personally. Too rich. Caviar, I don't have that problem with. That's one nice thing about growing up going to parties with lots of Iranians. Somebody's cousin's mother always just came back from a trip with a buttload of caviar that cost, in dollar terms, very little. Even we little kids got to stuff our faces. Good times. Alas, no longer.

Ain't nothing wrong with foie gras! If I could afford it I'd have it more often, damn my cholesterol!

I had thought maybe you mentioned caviar because the sturgeon are in serious decline?

I don't respect Costco's right wing republican hot dogs and gay bashing pizza slices, but they're both pretty tasty. And cheap.
