The American recipe for adapting other countries' cuisines is simple: deep-fry the ever-lovin' hell out of them. News of that must have reached those other countries, because -- perhaps in an effort to better cater to the appetites of traveling Yankees -- in many "American" restaurants around the world, ideas of what constitutes typical stateside fare have begun to stray towards the more ridiculous side.
To wit, here are 10 of the funniest interpretations of "American" food from around the globe. When in doubt, just add all the meats you've got.
“Frenchies” might profess some interesting ideas about our nation’s food scene (“America is entirely pictures of chicken wrapped in bacon.”), but when it comes to replicating it within their own country, they do a pretty bang-up job -- a “sandwich américain,” which is hawked by street vendors all over the country, consists of minced meat (usually ground beef or sausage), veggies, sauces, and a non-negotiable heap of fries IN THE SANDWICH. Then again, a French dip isn’t exactly French, so we kinda reciprocated this one.
