WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FAST FOOD?

Post by Shazzam » Mon Aug 01, 2005 11:21 pm

We have an increasing number of fast food outlets in Australia. Some capital cities in Australia are starting to resemble New York City. They seem to spread out like a virus!!!! Just when you think there can't be anymore going into an area another one pops up across the road!! :shock:

I'm not a great fan of fast food but lets be honest from time to time for convenience I do indulge!!

My favourite fast food is probably McDonalds. Don't get me wrong I don't love the stuff, but they are so readily available here that there is where I would tend to buy something to eat if I was in a hurry. They have made some really big changes to their menu to try and support people that want to eat healthier; so I suppose that is a good thing.

What is your favourite fast food outlet?

:idea: :idea:

How often do you eat fast food?

Once a week, month etc?

KFC or Taco bell. I could eat a whole bucket of KFC or about 5-6 taco shells if I wanted to :lol: . One day I was craving for KFC so I went to buy a whole bucket of honey barbecue chicken wings, and I was gnawing on them like I was starved years ago. It was hard to lose the weight afterwards. Now I have to watch out for whatever I eat since my metabolism is weak :cry: .

I know exactly what you mean about metabolism (or lack thereof). :lol:

Your choices are so different from Australia. We can't get honey bbq chicken wings here ( and no way by the bucket ) only original KFC that way! :mrgreen:

We don't have TACO Bell here either. I'm assuming they sell Mexican style food? I'm so jealous!!

Fast food is bad for "know-how" in culinary art.

Fast food is more expensive than your own and good buying.

Fast food is rarely good according to the dieteticians.

Fast food is a picture of our society, too fast (and furious :lol: ).

Although fast food is bad for our health, it still is a part of a culture, American culture. It's a part of innovation and diffusion of culture. Before, fast food was not that popular since family time during dinner was expected and valued; however, the traditions have changed. People nowadays are more busy with work and stuff; therefore, we need something fast and cheap. Fast food is the answer. It's spread all over the North America and Europe; now it's going for Asia. Study has shown that Asian kids are getting fatter because of fast food. It's something to study or learn about. no need to go against for, I suppose. I don't vote for or against fast food. It's come and it will go.

:lol: this is the reason why most Americans are fat. They have different sizes of buckets. And no offense or don't try to sound as a racist person, but KFC and Church (near my house) are one of black people's favorites. They buy buckets during Super Bowl. It's quite scary to look at to me.
Anyhoo, :shock: you don't have boneless honey bbq chicken wings? What a loss. It's the best part of their menus. I only eat them and nothing else on that menus. Their smashed potato and corn on the cob are okay, too.
Taco bell is a Mexican food, but the style in Mexico is not like the style in America. Although same ingredients and same way of making those taco bell dishes, American style is more of a fast food type so it's yucky compared to Mexican style, I think.

Although fast food is bad for our health, it still is a part of a culture, American culture.
1. Is US culinary culture only composed by fast foods ?
2. There are culinary schools and restaurants :

Culinary schools in US

Some restaurants in California

3. You can prepare yourself your meals. There are many books and website about culinary art (I let you the art of the research).

4. US (or any other country) have not to impose "their culture" of fast food.

Darling, a part of a culture is what I wrote. A part of it... American culture is multiculturalism; therefore, anything from a big community to a small community is still a part of American culture.

Nope, I have tried and it is not cheaper than fast food. On the other hand, it takes a lot of time to make. You can't prepare a dish, which you call is healthy for only a dollar and something. There is no way you can do it like that in America. That's why fast food industry is big. If home-cooked meals are fast, cheap, and easy to make, people would never go to fast food restaurants. But they do, and to be truthful, I don't see it will die in the future. Maybe it'll get better in quality, but it won't die. And if it does, it will take a looooooong time.

I told you, I don't see it as a good nor a bad move. It's a part of a culture; therefore, I just leave it as is. It comes and it will go because it is a diffusion of a culture; it wasn't embraced by force.

Encourage people to think about their health instead of only about time and money.

The purpose/goal/aim is not to do the most things.

I did not know that it was in any culture to cook nothing but to be given a ready meal. That is the great pity.

8) I agree with you totally. In my country of course there are take out (fast food outlets) but most people I know would indulge in fast food probably once a month (at the most). I grew up with home cook meals and so I am in that pattern with my children. We very rarely have fast food. I don't agree that with a family it is cheaper. If I took my family to McDonalds (for example) for dinner it would cost a minimum of $20.00. I can cook a really nice baked dinner for that plus dessert and probably have left overs. It is all about budgeting! :)

Although time and money play a big factor to the cause of fast food's growth, but there are important factors go along with it as well. I, myself, don't eat fast food on a regular day. I don't eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner like others because it's not healthy; however, sometimes I have to give myself to it. Why? It's because most fast food restaurants open late at night. Whenever I go out late at night with my cousins and friends, we would stop for In-n-Out burgers (this is the best, by the way), Wendy, Burger King, or Mcdonalds, etc afterwards. It's good to eat something after hanging out with people you love. You might ask why not coming home and cook a meal since it's better and healthy? Well, it's about the mood and convenience. If you wait for a meal to be cooked at home, you're probably too sleepy to eat or not in the mood to eat anymore. Thus, that's why fast food restaurants are crowded at night because they're right on the way whenever people need to stop by. At 1 in the morning and the In-n-Out burger place we went last time was still crowded, in the store and at the drive thru. When we were in line, it was 10 cars ahead of us.
Additionally, it's also the reason why it's a part of a culture. We didn't have fast food restaurants in the past, but maybe people who saw this "man, I wanna eat something, but nothing is open late at night." They saw it as a way of doing business; therefore, fast food restaurants were open. It was a big change in our society. That's why I said it's an innovation and diffusion since we created it ourselves, and it's diffused to our culture without force.
Moreover, fast food restaurants in the States have playgrounds and toys for kid's meals. When you're on a trip and you don't want your kids to make a mess, you'll give them fast food meals. They love it, they'll eat it and they won't nag since they'll be full. Also, they could play with the toys in the car. Eating home-cooked meals in the car is just too messy. Don't forget to mention you have to wash the dishes afterwards. For fast food meals, you just throw the wrappers away.
Anyway, it's easy for you to say not to do something since you don't have trouble of not doing it yet. Just wait when.... well, just wait and you'll see :wink: .

I thought America had always had DINERS that were open 24 hours anyway! Really you shouldn't be eating that late at night anyway its not good for you as you metabolism has pretty much geared right down so you don't burn off what you eat at 1 in the morning. :idea:

The lastest they're open is 11 p.m. Most of fast food restaurants open 24 hours. Although I know my metabolism is weak, it's still hard to resist a warm burger and a coke after a long movie and such, you know. Or sometimes a good Krispy Kream's doughnut *yummy*.

I myself don’t eat fast-food, but sometime I have to. The reason for that I don’t have time to cook or I am on the road or I am in hurry. The idea of fast-food is for people who don’t have much time and they need a quick meal instead of cooking. However if you can cook your own meal everyday then it’s good for you. In Europe, people spend more time to enjoy their meal, everything seems slow and relax. In other hand, life in America is so busy and time is very important. If you can not manage your time, you will get big trouble in your daily life. It is not only money but it could be anything else. Do I like it? Nope! It is part of our culture and we have to live with it. I don’t think it will go away and it’s good or bad defend on different people life.

Arg... why don't you eat at one's home one meal ? that you prepare together.

There are/exist some meal which are both health and good to taste.

And if you go outside, it will change ? you will become fit ?

If you are too sleepy, better is to go to bed.

Keep some apples, bananas and oranges at home. Or bred, cheese.

And what about your sleep ? what about sleep of people who work at night ? it is not a surprise if you are tired the next morning.

Laziness not to prepare self meal. And you fall in their business...

When you prepare yourself your meal, this one is each time different. You know what you put in. You can be proud and satisfied for having prepared your meal.

They can learn being patient. I am sure that their preferred meal is not a fast food. Do they really love it ?

Why ? is there any shame to eat what you prepare ?

Shokin, you forgot to quote this last part. Let me ask you, the way you're quoting me is nice to read, but how many people practice that perfect way in their daily life every single day? Except priests, monks, lacto-vegans, vegans, or people who don't eat meat etc. there is always a chance for a person to break a rule to have something like fast food once in a while. Life is not perfect and neither are we. Eating fast food once in a while is not a crime.
Anyway, I'm trying to find the article that I've read about a research on fast food they were doing. They put two people on fast food eating McDonalds every day, but one lost weight and one gained weight. I'll share with you when I find it.

This proves to me you like to argue :lol: . If there is no people who accepts to work at night, there would be no fast food restaurants open that late. People who come to this country with no degree, students, single people, etc. work that late to earn some money so they could be able to pay their rent, bills, food in the house, mouths to feed, and so on. Thus, it's a three way situation, darling. People who want to eat late at night, people who work for money and people who wanna have money from their business. They work all the together to make the economy going.

I think we would all have to agee that everyone has fast food at sometime or other. The difference is how often?

I don't think many people eat it on a daily basis even if it is once a year or once every five years; people do eat it, and for a whole lot of different reasons. It is a temptation (like cake) homemade or not! :)

There is research that proves that eating too much fast food not only causes obesity. There are other issues like cholesterol, blood pressure, liver disease etc.

A young film maker made a film about this where he only ate McDonalds for every meal for three months. It was called Supersize Me (I think).

He started off a very healthy young man (his girlfriend was a vegan chef). By the end of the movie the doctors were so worried about his health that they were suggesting that he stop the program and book into hospital.

It also showed the marketing process applied by McDonalds. (SUPERSIZING).

My concerns about fast food really are that parents don't seem to use the word moderation with their children. I agree with SHOKIN in alot of cases a child can wait until they get home for something to eat; or have a piece of fruit. The concern of you making this a lifestyle choice is that your children will continue this lifestyle choice through adulthood and parenthood. Setting unhealthy standards for themselves and their children! :cry:

I'm not saying never give them fast food (that would be ridiculous) but alot of parents let their children have this style of food daily! Children are sucked into the promotion side as well (Happy Meal toys).

The key word in this debate is moderation I think! :idea: :idea:

There are some fastfood without meat. Have you never heart about vegetarian fast food ?

Have you never seen chinese fast food without meat.

Like any temptation, control yourself, be master of yourself.

A great point that you show, Shazzam1452 : child are not responsible, not really conscious of many things. And societies profit about it.

Most delicatessen's in Australia do vegetarian food. I'm sure it would be the same in most countries. 8)

The reason why I said I haven't seen a vegetarian fast food restaurants because those restaurants use old oil and animal oils, not vegetable oils. My grandma, uncle, and two aunts are vegetarians, and they don't buy food in a restaurant that sells food for vegetarians. They said it's hard to know what type of ingredients they're really using, or they're really using vegetable oil like they say they do since animal oils are cheaper. Therefore, I don't consider those as vegetarian fast food restaurants.

Doesn't salad have hams, tuna, or other meat stuff in it? And what about the dressings? They ain't vegetarian dressings.

Fast Food in our country stinks. some fast food are greedy. they just want money. their burgers are not well cooked, their fries are small, and their place is also dirty but the price is opposite to what i've said. i prefer fresh foods from the market. i have no problem cooking my own food because i love to cook. hehe.

You don't have to have tuna etc on a salad sandwich :roll: Just plain salad. As far as the dressings go i never have dressing on a salad sandwich it makes them soggy. Most deli's will make it the way you want you tell them what you want on it and they make it. 8)

You meant subway sandwiches? People do lose weight eating subway sandwiches. That's why I said I don't go against fast food or support it, for it's a part of a culture but I don't eat it daily. To me, if you don't like it, leave it alone. There is no need to go agaisnt or support it since life is not only black and white. There's a gray shade in between, you know. Besides, some fast food companies now try to improve their foods in a healthy way. We should give them credits for trying.

Its very sad isn't. No one would say never have fast food, because that is not the answer. Moderation is the key I think. Parents have a responsibility to teach their children moderation and also how to prepare food at home as well. If it is balanced it works. The weight issue with young people is worldwide with the increase of fast food outlets. :cry:

It sounds to me as though you already have some great ideas about what is good/bad for you. We could branch out all over the place in this topic because there are so many issues about what is good and bad for us. For example vegetables that are grown without using any insecticides.

Yes it is apparently Burger King bought out the Australian Company and even though it is owned by burger king it operates under the name "Hungry Jacks". I had a little bit of a look on the net about it and apparently Hungry Jacks started in Perth over 30 years ago (Western Australia). I'm from the East and I must admit I only heard of Hungry Jacks a few years ago (they aren't on every corner so to speak). There are only a few of their outlets in my state unlike the competition.

So there is a little bit of useless information... :lol:

There burgers are nice though! :)

I have discovered a healthy fast food outlet!

In our new shopping centre a fast food outlet has opened called "JUICE". They make all sorts of health drinks like alfalfa and orange with bran etc. They also do a stack of healthy treats. They say they only use products that have been produced naturally (no pesticides, preservatives etc).

I have noticed alot of young people are having their drinks in the morning. I see them at the bus stop with the mugs.

Maybe they are trying to cure their hangovers! :lol: :lol: :lol:

My pc is playing up this afternoon I couldn't get onto that website; but I bet it is. There is another one in Manly (on the northern beaches of Sydney) called "BOOST" the kids love it. I think it is great! My son has one with fresh mango in it in Summer (together with a heap of herbs, like mint) he reckons they are amazing. Mind you they are very expensive it could cost up to $8.50 for one.

When you think about it though it is a meal in a mug! :lol:

very good point !

you can cook yourself your own meal, this is a good habit.

you can prepare the good quantity of your meal, avoiding to waste aliments like in restaurants.

you don't lose your know-how in culinary art, a contrario you perfect it.

I like pizza; but not the stuff you get from Pizza Hut or Domino's. There are only a few independant Pizza owners left in my area and they use the old fashioned wood ovens. The pizza's are lovely. Good thing about it is you can pick your own toppings and ask for a reduction of cheese if you wish. You have more control over what you get. Yummy! 8)

My favourite pizzas are traditional style; pepperoni, capsicum, mushroom, onion (and anchovies). But I do also like seafood pizza sometimes.

I must admit I probably only have pizza once or so a year. But I do like to get a really nice one when I have them. That is why I don't buy Pizza Hut or Domino's.

Yes! I like pizza with pineapple too. My bf's favorite pizza is the one with salmon and pineapple. The good thing about pizza is the extense variety of ingredients! mmmmmmmm... I had pizza last night for dinner but I'd love to have another slice right now... you guys made my hungry!
We get Hawiian pizza here which is ham and pineapple (very nice); but I have never heard of fruit pizza like Illusion is talking about (pineapple and bannana) :shock:

I just remembered Pizza Hut advertised a dessert pizza once (it had apple on it). I suppose a little bit like an apple pie.

But Illusion, pineapple and bannana! It sounds horrible; doesn't the bannana go brown? :?

Yes, there is also "Tropical pizza" here which is ham or chicken and pineapple. It tastes sooooooooooooooooooo good! Yummy.

I've also heard about banana pizza. I think it's called "Canarian" (you know, from the Canary Islands) :D

I bet banana pizza would be a hit on "monkey island". I know it isn't funny but banana pizza just doesn't make any sense to me at all.. :lol:

You know Dixie now that you mention it, I think I could be a fan of "Monkey Island." :lol: :lol: :lol:

But I wouldn't eat their pizza creations. :lol: :lol:

Shokin
:roll: I don't know how it works at where you live, but in the States almost 99.9% of all pizza restaurants provide free delivery service. Surprisingly, restaurants like McDonalds, Burger King, Wendys, KFC, etc. don't provide that service. If you wanna eat them food, you have to go buy them. Thus, it's funny to see that pizza is the least that you boycott.

Really? Pizza Hut is very good.
Maybe you have tasted a horrible combination. You know, like "with anchovies and pinneaple." Yuck! Or maybe, Pizza Hut here is better than there.

Maybe it is just the Domino's in my area. They are pretty bad. Not the worst mind you but not great. I suppose every franchise is different in the World. :)

You must have a good Pizza Hut. In Australia when they first opened they were great! Over the years they have changed (I suppose to try and met the fast food market). Now they have all you can eat bars with Pizza's that are made earlier and with whatever they have left over on them (yuck).

My husband and I went there a year ago and ordered a pizza and it was like eating a shoe! It was horrible. I was so disappointed as we had to travel along way (there are no Pizza Hut's in the area that I live).

They definately don't taste good, the wood fired pizzas are beautiful. Theirs taste like they went through a microwave oven. :(

Yeah Lalee, I think Pizza Hut in the States is like Australia's, which tastes really bad. Or maybe I have different taste than others's; I don't like pizzas that are too soft or too cheesy. I like them a bit crunchy, more tomato sauce and less cheese.
And you know, the frozen pizzas are pretty good, too. I went to the supermarket yesterday with my mom to buy food, and we bought some frozen pizzas to try them out. It turned out they were not that bad like you thought they would be. The taste is really different; it's interesting.

Yeah, maybe I'm lucky to have a good Pizza Hut here in Lima.
I've never tried frozen pizzas. I'm going to ask my mom to get some frozen pizzas. I think it would be interesting to give them a try.

It was like eating a shoe? LOL I'm sorry shazzam but I can't help, but laugh. Poor you. I guess you never came back there after having such a terrible experience.
Maybe you should try frozen pizzas. Lennye says that they are not bad.

I said in my earlier post in this topic that I would give out the article I was reading about people actually lose weight eating fast food. Well, I still haven't found the orginal one, but I've found this one that contains a bit of the one I wanted to show.
Here's the link,
http://aolsvc.news.aol.com/news/article ... 3009990002
And this is a part of the other article I wanted to post,
"One person went so far as to make her own independent film about dieting at McDonald's. "Me and Mickey D" follows Soso Whaley, of Kensington, N.H., as she spends three 30-day periods on the diet. She dropped from 175 to 139 pounds, eating 2,000 calories-a-day at McDonald's.

"I had to think about what I was eating," Whaley said. "I couldn't just walk in there and say 'I'll take a cinnamon bun and a Diet Coke.' ... I know a lot of people are really turned off by the whole thought of monitoring what they are eating, but that's part of the problem.""
(copied from AOL news)

I like Burger King's french fries, but I like McDonalds's burgers. I think they're better than Burger King's. However, In-n-Out french fries and burgers are the best. I bet this could make you fat because you just can't get enough of it. I hate eating burgers, for I don't consider them as real food, but if they're In-n-Out's burgers, I could eat up to three buns. That's how good it is.

:wink: My mom could make them really good, too. And she could also make good hotdogs and hotlinks.
