    No wonder there are so many overweight Americans. Won't deny it though, I am kind of craving a donut/brownie/ice-cream sandwich now. Rocky road, chocolate chip cookie dough, and mint chocolate chip ice cream smothered between a gooey sprinkled brownie and a blueberry donut, topped with some hot fudge. *gains 100 pounds*

    I don't get it. It's just a list of preparations, the person cooking them is responsible for the taste.

    I'd say Rendang is more of a malay thing than strictly Indonesian; I don't know where it originated from though.

    That said I prefer rendang with beef or mutton because chicken just ruins the taste of the coconut milk and the spices. Like, it doesn't really make an awesome combination compared to red meat.

    In Hong Kong, French toast, called 西多士 (Cantonese [sɐ́i tɔ́ː ɕǐː]; jyutping: sai1 do1 si2; Mandarin Pinyin: xīduōshì; "western toast", but actually an abbreviation of "法蘭西多士", "French toast"), is available all day round, but is popular for breakfast andafternoon tea in Hong Kong-style western restaurants and cha chaan tengs. It is made by deep frying stacked sliced bread dipped in beaten egg or soy, and served with a slab of butter and topped with golden syrup, or sometimes honey. Two slices are normally used and a sweet filling is usually added.[7] In other non-Cantonese speaking parts of Greater China, it is usually called 吐司 (Pinyin: tǔsī; literally "toast"). It is listed at number 38 on World's 50 most delicious foods complied by CNN Go in 2011.[8]

    OMG @ HKKMR'S LINK
    2 slices with filling in the middle, butter, and syrup? MMMMM. And it's deep fried!

    (I would put peanut butter on top, if it went well with the filling)

    I am astounded that fried chicken didn't make the list. May this world be pitched into the ceaseless, annihilating void.

    Yes, but from where?

    Southern style fried chicken
    Japanese style chicken karaage
    Korean style

    Unfortunately picking a side in this battle will likely result in the world being destroyed...

    True, but some things are inherently tastier than others e.g. boiled potatoes vs. any sort of curry.

    Yeah, the illustrated version works better.











    Fried chicken - I would vote KFC. Life's too short to turn my nose up at fast food

    For fuck's sake, you must never have been to Popeyes if you're enthusiastic for KFC.

    There are way better things like Sauerbraten:

    No. As long as you put it in your mouth and swallow it, it's food.

    Seriously? KFC is the worst fast food place out there. Over-priced pieces of rancid chicken FTL.
