I've never been there, too. But seeing all the commercial on TV, I think they have steak there also. Smashed potato, corn, steak for... Man, I can't remember the price now. You like steak, don't you?

I see a lot of people go there for dinner. It seems like a a typical American dinner to me.

You'd be in paradise if you came to my town, baby 8) Shrimp is the most typical and beloved food here :D

I don't like it though.

Um for the most part I don't like steak either. IF that was the only thing available then I would but eating the side dishes would be good enough for me.

I think eating in a foreign country makes the food taste better (except if it's lobster). :wink:

I love buffets! But these ones in WA that I've been too :roll: - the food's kinda dry. That's why I'm not sure at this point. But somewhere like Red Lobster their food must be excellent!

Hello people... :lol: :lol:
in my country the typical food is a breakfast called "Gallo Pinto" is delicious and nutritious your ingredients are: rice, beans, sweet pepper, onion, cilantro.
Besides, you add whatever you like for example eggs, cheese, ham
I invite you to come to Costa Rica and enjoy it

Dixie wrote:I was watching this programme on TV this week about Catalonia from the point of view of immigrants living here. They talk about a different topic every week. This week's topic was food.

Some immigrants mentioned that they were at first shocked at the sight of cured ham, but when they tasted it they liked it so much they wanted more. A Chinese man, who has been living here for 9 years, said that he went to China recently and all he could think of was cured ham :lol:

In Lleida, a very typical dish is snails!! That's another thing some of the immigrants were shocked about :D

What do you guys think of the two examples I just mentioned? What did you feel in viewing the images? Did you know about this type of food?

I will give more examples later.


Hello ...
In my case I do not like all those foods, well dont know nothing of this food, but I think it's interesting to see more of theme
