What / Where I Ate in California - In and Out

"American food" is best represented by HAMBURGER, agree? This famous kind of sandwich which has a byname - BURGER is typically sold in fast-food restaurants, and even nowadays, high end restaurants are serving them too.

If you visit California, and you are a typical eater, i.e. you eat fast-foods too, dare not to forget to have a bite of California's pride, when it comes to burgers: 

Finally, finally, I was not just hearing how famous were these burgers at In-N-Out but then I had the greatest chance that moment to activate my being a food critic and to indulge in the lusciousness of this heaven-on-earth treat.

This particular branch of In-N-Out Burger was not spacious enough to accommodate hundreds on hungry eaters.  But since the restaurant is a fast-food, hence, the act of eating is expected to be in sort of a haste too.  You cannot afford to delay every chewing and swallowing and gulping moves as people were flocking every now and then.  But the experien…

What / Where I Ate in Anaheim, California, U.S.A. - McDonald's - part 2

On our fourth day in California, we went back again to Mickey-D's in Anaheim, which is situated a few blocks away from the Anaheim Convention Center, for our breakfast.
Day 3 of the EXPO

Though I have this stick-to-itivness attitude when it comes to liking foods in certain eateries, but that morning, I decided to try another kind (though still with Mexican taste) of breakfast meal - the McBURRITO Breakfast!

I went for iced coffee since I badly needed a large dose of caffeine to keep me up and alert that day.  What I loved in this meal was the mixed berry yogurt!  My food rating = 9 of 10!

See my previous McDonald's post HERE.

What / Where I Ate in Buena Park, California, U.S.A. - Knott's Berry Farm Chicken-To-Go

The hotel that accommodated us on our stay in the Orange country of California was Knott's Berry Farm Hotel.  The hotel was just adjacent to the 12th most visited amusement park in Buena Park, which is the Knott's Berry Farm. 

Though we did stay at the park's hotel but we never had the time to have a peek of what's in store in the classic theme park.  We only strolled outside the premises and we grabbed our dinner one time at the Knott's Berry Farm CHICKEN TO-GO.
Since this is a take-away or to-go eatery, the menu options were expectedly minimal. 
The activities of the hardworking team of Chicken To-Go were very transparent which gave us, customers the confidence on the cleanliness and quality of their foods.
This man was responsible for the final checking and packing of orders.  And the lady beside him was in-charged of handing the orders to the respective customers.
And this was our dinner.  A meal that was good for two and shared for two.
We ordered the 2-PIECE MEAL, …

What / Where I Ate in Anaheim, California, U.S.A. - McDonald's

For our breakfasts in the next remaining days of the expo, we decided to head over to a more affordable breakfast house as we needed to stretch on our budget for food.  McDONALD'S was our ultimate choice.

DAY 2 of the Expo

I was hugely fired up with the thought of having the chance to eat McDonald's from its home court.  Of course, almost everyone knows that McDonald's originated in the United States of America and that morning was the best chance for me to finally taste the real deal.
By the way, have you seen The Founder movie released this year? It is a story about McDonald's, its origin and success through the years.  If you ask me, I have not seen the whole movie but have a number of sightings with the teaser  / promotional videos.

They have indicated stations at the counter for order and pick-up which gives organization within the customers in queue.

I never set expectations for the menu options, maybe because I anticipated that the offerings would definitely differ, …

What / Where I Ate in Anaheim, California, U.S.A. - Denny's

The word DINER is common in America as there exists a number small fast-food restaurants (this basically defines the word) across the states of the country.
One famous diner chain of the country is DENNY'S!

It was dinnertime when we headed to the diner.  Rice, rice, rice was all in my head on our way to Denny's.

And so I ordered for the ALASKA SALMON, because I do love salmon, as influenced by my forever food buddy... and because this dish is served with Whole Grain RICE!

From the insight we have collected after our meal at IHOP, see my blog post here, my officemate and I decided again to share the plate on whatever we opted to order.

Her choice was the SIRLOIN STEAK, not rice, just the potato strips.

My ratings: Restaurant Concept = 8 of 10 Menu Options  = 8 of 10 Food Serving Size = 10 of 10
(one order can be shared for two or even three small appetites) Overall Food Taste = 9of 10 (it was my first time to taste whole grain rice, and I loved it!) Restaurant Lay-Out and Interior Designing…
