wildflowerz :  after living in italy for a year, i found the food overall was better then any american food restaurant for the most part. Are there some expections sure, there are some amazing restuarants in the US, and there are some crappy food place in italy, but from my experience of working as line cook for the past 8 years, US restaurants would rather buy cheap product then buy better quality product at a higher price all for the sake of saving/making more money. 

in short i feel like american is more quantity over quality as places like france and italy are more about quality over quantity.

Kslim13 :  What is considered American foods? Steaks and bbq? Even the best US restaurants serve some other ethnic foods- Spanish, Thai, Italian Japanese, etc.

Kslim13 :  And I️ completely agree – Italian food in Italy is much better than best US Italian restaurants. And all the  cured meats and fresh cheeses – heavenly.

Kslim13 :  Yeah, I get it.  But what you’re saying is not the same as what that previous poster said.  

Additionally the attitude & culture on food and quantity vs quality is changing in the US.  There are food deserts here, yes.  And some real crappy chain restaurant food. That does not equal American food being garbage.  I am American and  I don’t eat garbage.  I eat very well. 

And that doesn’t even count the great & varied ethnic markets & restaurants in the US.  

If a person visits a country and only eats garbage while there that’s more a representation of their choices than the country’s food.  It is simply untrue that’s “all the bread in the US has sugar in it” along with the other claims that were made.  If I visit Italy & choose to only eat garbage that doesn’t mean the food in Italy is garbage.

I don’t disagree, but this is not the same thing.  Go to Italy and eat lobster rolls, clam chowder, bbq and jambalay and see how good it all is. 

Of course regional italian food in italy is going to be better overall than italian food in the US.

wildflowerz :  True. I️ guess in general I like dishes from other countries more than traditional American dishes- aside from lobster rolls. And even than, I️ just eat out the lobster, don’t need it drained in butter and a bun. And dishes such as fried chicken, Mac, burgers, bbq (especially drenched in sweet bbq sauces ) just doesn’t appeal to me.

wildflowerz :  I dont know ive traveleld everywhere from europe to Asia to Australia to dubai. And I have found the food to just be better in general. Food found in places like asia and europe just have a better quality taste, from ingredients they choose to the way its prepared. But that’s just my opinion.

Again are there some hole in the wall type food joints in those countries, of course, but if you ask anyone whos travelled extensively what country has the best food I guarantee the majority arent going to place the US at the top.

solnishko1186 :  Same.  I think it’s partially because such a big swath of the US is land locked.  Coastal Mediterranean food is probably my #1.

Kslim13 :  I must not be explaining myself well.  “if you ask anyone whos travelled extensively what country has the best food I guarantee the majority arent going to place the US at the top.”

I don’t disagree.  But again, that is not what I took exception to.  Your statements are different than the ones I did.  

And when comparing, the destinations need to be appropriate.  Naples can’t be compared to Branson, etc.  when Americans travel overseas they are going to big cities, seasides, wine country, etc.  They are splashing out more on dining than they do at home.  A person might still think apples to apples the US comes in lower which is fine as long as the comparison is fair.

I love eating when traveling, it’s a huge priority.  Eating well at home is also a priority and I do.

Have to agree re Olive Garden…it’s blah and so are the breadsticks! I also don’t like The Godfather (which DH is baffled by), and I’m not a fan of Oprah or Beyoncé 😬

I am not a big fan of chain restaurants. The food is always over-priced for the taste and quantity you get. (And I am talking specifically Canada.)

I cannot stand the name Adeline or any of the *unqiue* sister spellings: Addalyn, Adilyne, Addilyn, Adalynn, etc. 

Apologies to the bee’s who have children named this, it just makes my eye twitch.
