Greek Food

Americans should love Greek food more than they do. It’s a little bit of a challenge to folks ruined on burgers and fries. (Spanakopita with cubed feta.)

Indian Food

Americans who do eat Indian food tend to stay within a narrow range of food that’s most like what they know. We’re still scared somebody’s going to pull out the chilled monkey brains. (Chicken Dak Bungalow).

Vietnamese Food

This is a fine, graceful cuisine most Americans haven’t really distinguished from Chinese. (Crispy Spring Rolls Vietnamese Style).

French Food

French food almost introduced ‘foreign food’ into America through Julia Childs. But we’ve drifted from our old friend. (Escargot).

Mexican Food

‘Mexican!’, you say. ‘Everybody loves Mexican food!’ But if you do the typical American thing of never getting past tacos/burritos/enchiladas, you’re not trying. (Seafood Paella).

German Food

Yes, Germany has a cuisine. It isn’t just room temperature beer – speaking of things Americans pretend to like. (Sauerbraten with potato dumplings).

Cuban Food

If you were psychic, you’d overhear this a lot at Cuban restaurants: ‘Man, I wish this were Mexican!’ (Fried Plantains).

Kosher Food

What do most Americans know about Kosher food? That it’s lox and bagels, and we’re not sure what lox are. (Seared salmon plate).

Japanese Food

One in a hundred Americans LOVES sushi. The rest of us eat Japanese food wishing it were Chinese. We can handle it though – when it’s deep-fried. (Tuna Eyes).
