America isn't so much a melting pot as much as it's a buffet. Hear me out here. One of the best ways to get to know a culture is through its food. Italy, France, Spain, Germany, China, Japan, the Caribbean, the list goes on and on. And they're all well represented in America. You can get just about any flavor you're looking for here.
And of course, there are uniquely American foods, too. I won't say that it's always healthy, but Americans do food their own way, and they do it well.
