The part of American cousine I don't understand is why there are sandwiches in restaurants? Isn't sandwich what you get when you cannot eat from a plate?
This is the funniest thing I've read all week.
I am not sure I positioned all words right though... My impression mostly based on some Florida places where I could not find any dish which is not wrapped in a kind of bred. But seriously, sandwich is a kind of food you can eat "on the way", why is noone surprized when it is served in a place where you can get a soup and a second dish and then a dessert?..
I'm afraid that's not the custom in America, мой друг. We eat sandwiches EVERYWHERE.
In America, we've valued the sandwich for a long time because it allowed us to eat and work at the same time. Because of this, it's an ingrained part of our culture, and it feels innately American. That's why you see them even in sit-down restaurants.There are plenty of restaurants that don't serve sandwiches, but honestly most restaurants serve some kind of sandwich, because it feels American. Also, most places in America have their own signature sandwich: Philadelphia has the cheesesteak, New Orleans has the po'boy, Miami has Cuban sandwiches, New England has Lobster Rolls, etc.In America we love sandwiches.
Whenever I'm asked what my favorite food is, I always say sandwich.
Thank you for all responses, they're quite explanatory:-)
American food is godlike. Period. End of discussion.
Glad there are those who appreciate it.
Didn't define the god though. Might be Dionysos.
Some might say that a sandwich, especially the one portrayed here, is to food what Sir Terry Pratchett's 'Oh God of Hangovers' is to Bacchus/Dionysus. ;)
