Although I’ve sworn off junk food since reading Fast Food Nation, I actually went and had Asian fast food yesterday. It’s a place called Mr. Lee, and they serve food so quick, it actually does deserve the label “fast food”. I remember back when I still frequented various fast food joints, I’d never choose exotic burgers, because they tended to take ages to cook.
I ate something I chose by looking at pictures, because the names they give their stuff isn’t exactly tell-tale (except of course you are privy to their secret language…which does not seem to be Chinese, so please refrain from writing comments such as “man, tehre are over one billion Chinese people, and you call it teh secret langage???!?!??!!11”).
The food actually tasted quite agreeable, considering that it was quick and rather cheap.
And they have a good interior designer.
