Turns out, it wasn’t as obvious as I’d imagined. Despite the number of small restaurants and franchises offering a variety of global dishes, Americans mostly just want sandwiches for lunch. Sometimes egg salad, sometimes tuna salad (perhaps the sole area of common ground between New Yorkers and Angelenos?), and jeez, guys, so much chicken salad. All hail chicken salad, Queen of America. Some findings were peculiar: Seattle’s very into their Quizno’s broccoli and cheddar soup. Houston is team fruit salad (what?). Nashville, a land-locked city 500 miles from the nearest ocean, orders salmon and avocado sushi 286% more than any other dish throughout the city.
