Meet Mr Chicken


Siâron: There’s lots of mimicking America going on isn’t there?

Morris: Yeah, they wants to give the impression that they are linked with the American fast food chain.
In the past Kentucky usually have a little logo, a little slogan, “American Recipe,” people used to copy that. I mean a lot of people still try, and we say, “Oh that’s old fashioned, people not using that again.” Because they try to pull the wool over people’s eyes, you get your Dallas, it’s American, you get your California, it’s American, you get your Mississippi, it’s American, and people just use those names to link with America. You hardly ever see a sign saying English Fried Chicken. Creative Review

It was. 1836-1846.

This reminds me of the kind of food court you find in some malls. In addition to the vendor's stall for Chinese food, there's one for Japanese food, one for Italian, one for New Orleans cuisine, etc. Oddly, all of the staff of all of these booths appear to be Chinese. Even the putative New Orleans food booth includes dishes such as "bourbon chicken" which is indistinguishable from General Tso's chicken, and all the booths offer your choice of fried rice or chow mein noodles.

my personal favorites are:

Kabul Fried Chicken which was over by the Russian built apartments on J-bad road

and Pizza Hot which was in the Zaiuna section of Baghdad...

and lets not forget Costa Rican Coffee as opposed to Costa coffee up in Kurdistan....
