Although Americans don’t have a lot of traditional food, we do have some. For example, we really like hamburgers, chicken and steak.
Many people also enjoy fast food, although it isn’t very healthy. Fast food is usually hamburgers, chicken or mexican food.
Mexican food is very popular here. Our favorite items are burritos, enchiladas and tacos. We like to make mexican food at home and eat it in restaurants.
Italian might be our favorite food. Spaghetti, pizza, and ravioli are very popular. Italian pesto, alfredo and red sauces are like no other sauces in the world.
Asian food is very popular now too. Chinese and Thai food has been a favorite for a while. Now Japanese food is kind of trendy. More and more people are eating sushi.
So there you have it. American style dinners. Do they sound appealing?
