US Is Not Only About Fast Food, Burgers And Fries

Everybody seems to think that US is all about quick, easy fixes. The only thing that US seems to have contributed to the world cuisine is fast food, burgers and French fries! It is time to dissipate this myth and to introduce to the world some of the mouth-watering delicacies true to American soil. These delicacies are so popular that almost every American will vouch for it. Besides, they are so American in their attitude and taste, that there is little doubt that originated on US grounds.

Fast Food


Anybody who has had a chance to dig their teeth into a deliciously juicy slice of Turducken will want to keep coming back for more. The turducken gets its name from the three core ingredients of this dish – a dash of Turkey, a bit of Duck and lots of Chicken. The recipe is simple in thought and brilliant in taste. All you need to is take a Turkey, stuff it with duck and then stuff the duck with chicken. To make the turducken more delicious, snuff up the chicken with sausages which have been deep-fried in wrapped bacon. Cooked in its own juices, the turducken is so delicious that it is quickly becoming a popular Thanksgiving specialty.

Baked Alaska

If you are in the US and you haven’t sampled the Baked Alaska, you are missing out on a piece of American essence. Combining the two most popular treats of the desert world; the pie and ice cream, the baked Alaska is a desert to look forward to. Americans decided that there could be nothing more brilliant than a freshly baked pie which oozes the thrill and chill of delicious ice cream.  The ice cream which is baked inside a pie is topped with rum and set aflame to give you the most delicious treat ever!

Philly Cheesesteak

Originated in the truly American city of Philadelphia, the Philly Cheesesteak is actually a sandwich which is American as the people who created it. Made from the most easily available ingredients, the Philly Cheesesteak is mouth-watering and filling. The original Philly Cheesesteak is made from delicious meat rich in dripping fat and cheese Whiz, not actually cheese. Across the country many other variations of the Philly Cheesesteak have been tried but nothing tastes as amazing as the original one.


The world is still confused whether to call s’mores a mouth watering dessert, a quick sweet bite or the national food of America (after Burger, of course). Every kid in America loves the s’mores and every adult craves to sneak a bite of it. Melting marshmallow, roasted on an open fire, stuck between two halves of the Graham cracker with a small slab of delicious chocolate looks like a mini desert sandwich which can’t be waited to be devoured.

Reuben Sandwich

The Reuben sandwich is made from delicious spices infused with pastrami and exotic Swiss cheese. They are piled high between freshly baked bread and then topped off with a special Russian dressing which is infused with a touch of orange. Every single bite just melts in the mouth.
