International Intrigue: Where’s the Beef?
So, Wendy’s is testing a veggie burger in the US. Big deal. Wendy’s opened its first location in India today and there are six meatless versions involving spinach, corn, falafel, and mushrooms. It has already been blogged. The WSJ was not above making a “Where’s the beef?” joke and I’m not too good to not repeat it.
Uncle Sam’s, the Beijing-based burger restaurant that’s coming to NYC for no good reason, will open May 18. I am more than ok with char-siu, shumai, and Canadian bacon commingling between buns.
I’ve never understood Steak Escape. Doesn’t it serve cheesesteaks, which defeats the point of escaping steak? Soon enough, this will be Russia’s problem (or should I say beef?).
Paramus now has the United States’ first Yo! Sushi. The British conveyor belt chain will soon be invading malls throughout the nation.
KFC will open in Myanmar. There is a strange Facebook page where you can see “grooming training.”
