What do foreigners think of American food?

I've always wondered what other nations think of American food. I don't mean like McDonalds or KFC. I mean like if you went to a sit down restaurant that sold freshly made hamburgers, grilled steaks and ribs, a side of steak potatoes or fries. And green beans with butter. Just as an example.

Ok, I know there is no "American" food. But there is a general idea of what it is. Whatever your definition is of American food. Do you like it?

  • Not a big fan to be honest. I feel like it's too heavy but at the same time most dishes don't really feel like a meal. I wouldn't consider burger or steak with fries a full meal (don't really know why that is...)

  • McDonalds and KFC are like the worst possible example of American food I can think of. I'm kind of embarrassed for America that those are what we offer the rest of the world.

  • Ikr that's why I recommend foreigners to ditch Hollywood and come down to the south where you'll taste real American food. Freshly made. I had a buddy come from England to Tennessee and as a welcome party we cooked some southern BBQ, pot roast, mashed potatoes with gravy, handmade biscuits, grilled corn on the cob, and to top it off for dessert angel food cake with cut strawberries and chocolate on top. He told us that it was the "most American" meal he's ever eaten šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚.

  • what would you call American food? Because everything you eat in America is available in other countries. But in Jamaica most of our food is indigenous. Unless you have Jamaicans prepare these meals they won't be prepared properly šŸ˜‚, trust me! So I guess Jamaican cuisine can be called jamiacan food... but American food... not so much

    • Yeah, that's because America is mash of too many cultures. Still, there is an idea of what American food is. Whatever you think it is... do you like it?

    • Show All
    • you should try some Jamaican food sometime! Especially now since it's summer and there's a lot of tourists here!

    • I think you meant to say not haha. Yeah I should! I love Caribbean food :)

  • Weirdly enough Tex-Mex is probably THE style of food most uniquely American because it was brought forth from Mexican food, right here in the US. And no, many Mexicans disdain or at least don't recognize Tex-Mex so it isn't "basically Mexican". So unlike the oft cited hamburger, the taco bowl didn't originate elsewhere.

    • Love Tex-Mex haha <3 I have to have it every time I visit. That a few others :)

    • How about Amerineese food? haha

    • That too. I have a list of places to hit whenever Iā€™m in town. More than half are food related places haha

  • "American food" to be just seems like other food but bigger haha. Also what is the obsession with deep frying things?

  • I'm fed up with US food like McDonalds, KFC, Burger king, frozen pizza like big one etc. It's junk food and it tastes worse after you've eaten properly gourmet food several time. But I still likes soda like Coca cola etc.

    Homemade hamburgers and other US food on properly restaurants however tastes good and is nice to eat if made properly.

    I hasn't tasted so much other American food. But I've tasted taco which is Mexican. That's nice sometimes, but I don't eat it too often since I can easily get fed up.
