I'm not much of a fast food fan, but I had a lot of stuff to do this morning, so I grabbed a Steak/cheese bagel at McDonalds .. hey .. not bad !!!!

And, on the other side of the coin,   I've tried Taco Bell four or five times over the years and have never found anything there that I liked.

Just sayin'

I like shawarma and gyros from street vendors, and I'll eat kielbasa from a cart, but I won't eat at McDonald's (despite the fact that one of my best friends in The Netherlands likes to eat there.  The food at McDonald's there is a bit "Dutchified".    They serve pannekoeken and Belgian fries with mayonnaise, but they are watered down plastic versions.  My cousin owns a Wendy's, and my father and uncle each owned a Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise.  But, I always hated US -style "fast food".  I rarely eat in restaurants.  But, when I do, they are "ma and pa" real, sit down, dinner restaurants.

I think it's interesting how the US Fast Food places modify their menus in other countries.   Burger King, McDonalds, etc.  in Germany all serve beer for example.    And all the fast food places in Japan have LOTS of chicken.    Did you know that KFC is the #1 place for Christmas dinner in Japan.

Despite disagreeing with their "politics," gotta say Chick-Fil-A is, as they say, "the bomb" when it comes to fast food.

Pannekoeken are Dutch pancakes, with can be sweet for dessert, or made with eggs, mushrooms and other non-sweet foods to be eaten as a light meal.  they are lighter than American pancakes.  What is served with them is much better than just butter and maple syrup or jam.  There are lots of sauces, sweet and non-sweet, made with fruit and other food, that change the style.

Much prefer crepes to pancakes. Anyone remember the Magic Pan chain in the 70s? We had one in DC and there used to be one on 59th (a block or two west of Bloomingdale's) in Manhattan.

Me too remember Magic Pan and La Creperie (spelled correctly Shandy).  Went to the place around 57th/59th near Bloomies many times.  Here in LA, there is a small chain called La Creme de la Crepe that we frequent - French expat owned and (often) partially French staffed.

Robb, Sweden also has its form of pancakes (quite different than the ones in the US)  as well as something else in the pancake/crepe family that they call (spelled phonetically) "pleta". Usually served with powdered sugar and lingon (lingonberry jam).

Then there's stroopwafel, but that's another matter;D

Mike, think you're on the money. On further reflection, think Magic Pan was on 57th, not 59th. They had over 100 restaurants nationwide at their 70s peak. Started in San Francisco and migrated east.

yes, they are something like crepes.  Each country, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, has their own style.

Robb, you mentioned Belgium.  When I lived there,  it didn't take me very long to learn to enjoy my french fries with mayonaise and I still like them that way.

According to family authorities, the correct name for thin Swedish pancakes to be eaten with powdered sugar and lingon is pl├Ąttar. They are good.

In both Belgium and Amsterdam I was offered mayo for the first time, it cost extra and was different, eggy, and I loved it.
