In the past, I had trouble naming one specific favorite food of mine. Today though, I tend to love pizza best. However, for those who have trouble answering this question I think it is fair to say that they can at least point out a broader area of cuisine they prefer, such as Italian, Mexican, American, you get the idea.
In our society today, we are fortunate to have a vast array of food choices before us, which makes it all the more easier finding a great place to eat out. America is becoming a nation of obese people not because we are lazy ñ not in the least. It is the wide ranging food choices and the portions they are served in that have caused it.
Owning a food business, much like investing in real estate, is often a good venture to undertake because people are always going to need to eat just like they are always going to need a place to live; however, the challenge behind owning your own restaurant lies in building a credible reputation for serving outstanding cuisine.
But owning a restaurant is beside the point. What I want to focus on is finding great restaurants and eating. Iím an avid traveler and I love it. The biggest reason behind my love of travel is the many opportunities it provides for me to try eating at different places. I canít even explain the rude awakening I got the first time I ate a meal in a different country. It has probably never crossed your mind if youíve never had such a chance, but there is a huge distinction between American food and the food served in other countries, especially Europe.
In America we take food and make it our own, meaning that the Chinese food you had last week was probably not as authentic as the sign above the restaurant claimed. Of course, Iím not complaining. Iíve had occasion to eat out in several different countries and I always leave feeling that the American versions are much better, especially in regards to taste.
Ethnic restaurants in America take big steps when it comes to making a great presentation of the food, as well as what ingredients go into it to add taste. Americans have a sense of flavor all their own and quite different from the rest of the world, which is why when a Chinese or Mexican restaurant opens and becomes successful you know they put together the right ingredient to please consumers.
If you are like me and enjoy eating, make it a point not to eat at the same two or three places all the time. There is so much out there to try so be adventurous. If youíre unsure about what restaurants are out there, then do a search on the Internet. The Internet has thousands of websites that specialize in providing people with lists of restaurants in their area, as well as reviews, so you can better decide if a place is worth your time and money.
So what if America is full of obese people. Eating is fun and provides many pleasant oral experiences. Stop listening to all the specialists who claim weíre all going to die of heart disease.
