RE: Things I want to say (and ask) about American food
I guess it's all a matter of taste after all!

I forgot to mention that the classic Greek salad contains cheese, so I mainly meant any cheese that is not uuum... white?

Oh, and I also forgot to ask about your opinion on McDonalds, since we consider it the crappiest, saddest example of fast food around Tongue

First time I hear about it! But yeah, it's very similar, I guess since we're next to Bulgaria!

It is the crappiest, saddest example of fast food around, IMO.

Any cheese, white or whatever. They do have some good cheese here these days, used to be they had mostly these fake cheese slices in individual wrappers. But they do have some darn good cheeses now.

How is that even possible? Weeping

Lack of having an open fire and marshmallows available at the same time? Unsure

Remember, I didn't grow up in this country.

Thanks! He likes pretty much everything, although he's not really a meat lover.
I'll call him on Skype later and ask him if he's tried anything else.

McD's is the saddest crappiest crap. It's also the cheapest fastest crap. Some Americans care more about convenience than quality.

Yeah, it's called shopska in Bulgaria too, but when I said "here" I meant Serbia.

Bulgaria, long, long time ago, on vacation with my parents. I remember you had to exchange a certain amount of currency for Bulgarian money and we ended up with so much leftover money that we ate caviar for days - there was some golden, large caviar that was to die for.

My mom made Shopska salad for years after we got back home, we all loved it.

You only say that because it is the crappiest, saddest example of fast food around.
