Too bad In'N'Out Burgers is only a California chain. They could gain a lot of market share if they entered the fast food market in China, and seriously threaten McDonald's there.

IMHO they are just a variant of the HK-style cafe aka 茶餐廳)

haiyaaa!! like the cafes in Jusco. so many people just copy the same style. the portions are usually very generous for the price you pay. :D

also, in HK many restuarants are able to provide pizza and pasta with fresh tastes with low fat ingredients and olive oil. worth trying....


also, the great thing about HK/China is you can walk off the food after eat it, unlike the U.S. where people drive everywhere (even to go get morning newspaper in the driveway).

ya, i wish there were more good fast food places on the east coast, too.

burgerville is pacific northwest. i am not a fan of chain fast food, though. for example, there are places here in HK that are literally holes in the wall that have excellent food. on the east coast, many delis serve good food, too. sonic is great, too.

have you been to cracker barrel yet on the east coast?

ahh . . .fast food. one of my favorite topics.

Too bad In'N'Out Burgers is only a California chain

Actually it's not really a chain in the sense that Burger King or McDonald's or any other fast food chains are. All of the In-N-Out locations are still owned by the same family - they're not franchised out at all. They have extended their range from Southern California only to California and then slightly into Nevada and Arizona. I don't ever expect them to move beyond that - because they get all of their beef (and other products) from only a select few farms. Also, their produce/meat is never frozen. It's really fast food the way it should be (there's a bit about how In N Out represents the ideal in Eric Scholosser's fast food nation).

However, turning the discussion back to China - or at least Asia. I would happily kill someone if they would just open a MOS Burger here in Houston. What I wouldn't give for a place to get a Spicy MOS Cheeseburger. Mmmmmm. (Heck, they didn't even have MOS in Hong Kong. ) Here's how much I liked MOS - whenever I visited Japan or Singpore - two places where I love the food - I still had to go to MOS once each visit (if not more)
