I was wondering, since "ethnic food" is just basically food from foriegn countries, would a mcdonalds in, i don't know, Asia or wherever, be considered ethnic?<br><br>
heheheheh. there's a scary thought <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
*Sigh* i'm bored.

Maccas often (or used to) have themes (part of their "new taste" menu). Eg; for a couple of weeks they'd have Indian-type food (I think a Big Mac with some curry spices thrown in *L*), then they'd have something Aussie (a damper roll instead of normal burger buns).<br><br><br><br>
And other major fast-food holes sometimes have themes with their food... one (KFC or some place like it) has a "traditional" Greek chicken and salad wrap (of course, nothing traditional about that crap).<br><br><br><br>
American Cowboys and Indians is also popular with restaurants.... places like "Silver spurs" and "Lonestar Steakhouse" (just hang up a heap of Texas number-plates and heads of Buffalo and you're in business). And down the road is "Redskin's Burger Hut" with something like "traditional" burgers.... that place has a heap of drawings of American Indian stuff and a big sign with a drawing of an Indian Chief saying "The Chief thanks you for eating at his Burger Hut" (it's run by a Greek guy, decked out in 1950's US diner styles and has an American Indian theme).<br><br><br><br>
I've heard all about the Outback restaurants in the US..... and I sympathise with you.

We also have Wallaby's (in the midwest). Yes, Australian stuff is all Foster's kangaroo's and Koala bears. The motif gets a little silly.<br><br><br><br>
We have Lonestar here. For us, the steakhouses take on a Texas theme. But Native American would seem a little hokey and strange here.

In the midwest at least, they sold Johnsonville Brat for a while, and I remember some stupid ad with a slogan that could be interpreted as having a sexual connotation that made me laugh. Something like, "Don't forget to ask for a big Johnson!" or "Bite into our new Johnson." Sort of like Schwety Weiner.
