i grew up – and still am – a fast food afficiniado. los angeles is really kind of a car culture, fast food town and accounts for some of the greatest brand names in fast food. in-n-out burger, bob’s big boy, tommy’s original, fatburger and mcdonald’s were all founded in the greater los angeles area (ok, well, san bernardino is close enough to la for most people).
this is where you point me to thisiswhyyourefat.com. . . i know i know.
and as the summer progressed, and the construction began, anticipation was high amongst my california friends here in shanghai.
then i received this email yesterday from the star of shanghai rush, brian yang:
my cali kids,
we really don’t need more fatty food temptation, but hot damn, it starts on thursday – Carl’s Jr. opens here. hallelujah!
hallelujah indeed. this morning i’ve already had 3 conversations about fried zucchini and ranch dressing.
1. i don’t know why this blog has become so food obsessed. don’t i do anything besides eat?
2. i realize the double western bacon cheeseburger used to be the king of horrible for you burgers, only now surpassed by various concoctions as the hardee’s thickburger etc. etc, but it is still 1,000 calories of pure fat. not advisable to eat on any diet
