    Truth be told, we don't have those around here (chains beyond McD and BK). It´s pretty hard to find any fast-food that can compare favorable against a Döner Kebab, in taste, nutrition value as well as in price, which makes burger joints into really high class affairs around here (BK already had to file for bankruptcy once and McD is more about the coffee)

    Generally speaking, chains lose most of their advanced in small, highly developed countries, when the general (food) logistic chain is even more highly developed, than a single company can manage.

    What would you people say are the best burgers you've ever had? Chain restaurants only, please (so that it's recognizable to at least a few people).

    Mine is Five Guys. They also make excellent milkshakes.
    BurgerFuel (I don't know if you have this one in the US apparently there's one in Indiana). They make the best hamburgers and chicken burgers I've ever tasted (they also make vegetarian burgers, but I haven't tasted those), in addition to very good chunky, crispy fries.

    This is a thread to basically just talk about whatever food-related things you want!



    Anyway, to start it off, how about y'all's opinions on clam chowder? New England style or Manhattan?

    As a proud Massachusettsian (Massachusettser? Massachusett?) I can say with absolute certainty that New England style is my favorite of the two, but of course that's IMO.
    I definitely prefer New England style chowder. Manhattan isn't bad, but doesn't feel like chowder to me.

    I can agree with that. In my area (Austin, TX), the big burger places are: Mighty Fine, 5 Guys, Whataburger, and In-and-Out. My slight preference is for 5 Guys.

    I just had Becks Prime for the first time the other night. Definitely overrated and overpriced.

    I've never found 5 guys burgers to be that impressive vs their prices the only reason I ever go is for the milkshakes which are admittedly very good. Apart from the very obvious ones I'm not really aware of any chains in the UK that cross the Atlantic.

    The massive pile of veggies you can get on them is nice. That said the main reason I eat at 5 Guys at all is that there's one a block from my younger brother's house, he's a night owl and I am when visiting, and they're actually open past 10 PM which is pretty much the informal city wide closing time where I live - with definite exceptions, most of which are some distance away.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    Anyone got good recs on Vietnamese cuisine? The noodle soups are great, and I'd like to venture into some more choices.

    Also, you never know how much eggs a marble cake recipe needs until you might've not cooked them fully and it feels worse exiting than entering. Egh.

    Not sure why I came back here when I'm stuck on a bus in traffic and starving...wow, it looks great, thank you! I'll be hunting for that on the menu next time I visit the place.

    This might be against the idea of the thread but does anyone have a good recipe for danishes?
