I’ll take your comments how they read, not how you make hindsight excuses for them<quoted text>
Yes, I lived and worked there over the years. France and many other places too. We generally stuck to Indian Food. Please take my comments with a sense of humor. I'm mostly kidding around. I love British people.
Yes the fast food joints are easy to find. That's the strategy. And did you notice who's eating there? Mostly low income and tourists! I haven't been to a fast food joint in ages. The food sucks and is high in fat and salt and sugar to get poor unsuspecting people addicted to it and the overly sweetened carbonated drinks that go with. Only suckers eat at places like Burger King (founded in Miami b/t/w), McDonalds, KYC, Wendy's, Taco Bell, etc.
They're found along busy roads and intersections for a reason. I doubt you'll ever see a professional or educated person eat there. Just becaues you see them doesn't mean we eat there. Certainly people into health and fitness don't. There is lots of American gimmicks to get your money. Just because it's there doesn't mean it's good. That's the seedy side of Miami that you should drive past.
Explore South Florida's well-established Chef-Centered culinary culture. Thousands of chef-run little jems to dazzle your palate. This is a hub of fine-dining and culinary education nerve-center. A natural because of our high tourist traffic and cruise industry.
I have explored the dining scene from Orlando down Miami to a limited extent and to be honest I found it reasonably ok, particularly the seafood. I can’t say I found anywhere to rave about but had no complaints either.
However I was not the one sniping at what is the British roadside cafe and take away equivalent of US junk food as though that’s what we all eat.
The food in the UK, has evolved rapidly in my lifetime to become amongst the best there is to offer and taking the p|ss from what appears to be the position of ignorance or malice just makes you look silly
