While boring all of my friends with all the photos from my trip to the US, quite a few of those have remarked on all the pictures of food. True, I got to partake of lots of great food while I was in America and may have put on a couple of pounds. There seems to be food everywhere.
Pizza Hut isn’t the best place to get a good pizza in the US. The best places are independently owned ones usually run by Americans of genuine Italian descent. This one was from Manco and Manco’s in Ocean City NJ
Breakfast at the International House of Pancakes (IHOP). I still think this chain needs to come to Britain.
A meatball sub and a huge burger at a boardwalk restaurant
Look at all them cakes and doughnuts
And all sorts of candy apples on sticks
Nothing is better than breakfast at an American diner
There was a nice little ice cream shop across the street from where we stayed.
It also did great milkshakes
Can you believe the size of these cakes?
Even the chain brands are humongous!
There was also a bakery across the street which made excellent pastry.
Whenever I’m in New Jersey, I make it a point to go to my favourite Mexican restaurant, Los Amigos in Atlantic City
I love doing barbecues
The next few photos are from the Rain Forest Restaurant in Atlantic City
They try to create a rain forest effect inside
I had the steak, ribs and shrimp trio
Some of my friends’ meals
It was supposed to be a shot of a monkey swinging in the trees
This dessert is called ‘the volcano.’ It took all seven of us to eat it.
Steamed clams for lunch
A tub of curly fries from the Ocean City boardwalk
And one last Manco and Manco’ pizza before we returned to the UK
Looking at these pictures, there is no doubt some people are saying, “No wonder all Americans are fat.” Actually, I didn’t see that many fat Americans. Probably percentage wise, obesity in America is probably on the same level as the rest of the world. It’s just another stereotype but having loads of excellent food like this, it’s not a wonder why the rest of the world thinks that.
