American Diversity Leads to Choice in Food
The United States of America is a melting pot of a variety of different cultures that come together to create a beautiful nation. All of these different cultures bring with them a number of qualities from their countries of origin. The diversity in the United States leads to a huge variety in the amount of languages that are spoken in the country, the recreational activities available and the food prepared at different establishments. Walk on any block in a major metropolitan area and the chances are high that you will see restaurants serving food from many different regions. There may be a Chinese food place, a Mexican eatery, and a Japanese restaurant all on the same street within a five minute walk of each other. This leads to a large bundle of choices for restaurant consumers in the United States that helps all of us enjoy this country even more.
