ITT things that are popular in other countries that you wish caught on in your country
I've got a boner for sweet bean desserts that are popular in Asia. But of course it would be a tough sell in the States to convince Americans beans can be used in sweets outside of chinese restaurants.
No political will. Everyone says we don't have the population to support it except we have one of the busiest flight routes in the world.
i mostly want american products to invade foreign lands.
The car companies need a market. That's why we trashed our rails and trains too. Now we spend 10x more to export our produce. Fucking incompetent politicians and amerifat companies paying them off.
I live in New York
The state, not the city. So yeah, basically flyover :(
+real fucking italian pizza, not the crap finnish people do or sell.
Poutine. You find it some places near the US/Canada border and sometimes in Florida for the snowbirds but it's not a very common thing.
I'm originally Venezuelan, lived in Florida since I was 6, and then spent some time living in Taiwan. Later I joined the muhreens which brought me to SoCal, and I basically live the asiaboo lifestyle with minimal influence from non-asians outside of work. I've dated Taiwanese, Japanese, Vietnamese, and just got myself a Korean here, pretty much all I eat are the East Asian foods which in Orange County have become standard fare (like Chinese bakeries, Taiwanese boba tea shops, Japanese ramen/udon/curry houses), I buy Japanese furniture, cleaning, and hygiene supplies, I do Kendo at a Japanese dojo, hang out with asians pretty much exclusively...It's wonderful, desu.
Fun fact, one of Guatemala's most traditional desserts is a plantain stuffed with sweet black beans
it's the opposite here. everyone anticipates beers to be served with as little foam as possible. especially people who are into our "craft" beer scene. it's pretty disgusting desu
I guess I should point out people feel ripped off if you serve them anything less than a pint. they view the head as you being unable to pour a beer correctly, and or them being ripped off by the bar
But savory pies aren't part of our culture. We only have one
