Popular American Fast Food
David：Why are KFC and McDonalds so popular here in China?
You：I think many people like the ambiance in this kind of restaurants.
David：People in the US usually describe fine dining restaurants as having ambiance, but not fast food joints.
You：But maybe they are only considered fast food restaurants in foreign countries. In China, many young people feel a modern ambiance when dining in McDonalds, KFC and other western fast food restaurants.
David：But the food is very different from Chinese food. Do people think it really tastes good?
You：Some people think it is tasty, but some don’t.
David：It is a different style of eating also. Most fast food comes packaged for individual consumption. Although you may go with friends to a fast food restaurant, people usually order for themselves and do not share food. Sharing food over dinner is the typical custom in China. Do people mind?
You：People get used to it. However, to appeal to this Chinese custom, many of these places are also offering family meal packages for groups of people. By the way, I’m curious about something. Could you tell me, does the food at KFC in China taste the same as the ones in the US?
Divid:I would have a guess. It would be the same, since it is the same company. But now as I think about it, I think the KFC tastes better in the U.S.
