What is your favorite fast food and why?

For me, fast food has always held a duel attraction; it is food served up quickly and conveniently, but more importantly, it is food that feeds not just my hunger but a primal need to indulge in decadence. Jared trying to tell me that Subway sandwiches are good for me does not attract. McDonald’s submitting to the trans fat police in the making of their fries disgusts me. Yes, I want my fast food fast, but I also want it to be a guilty pleasure which provides great pleasure and about which I feel no true guilt.

At the top of my list of favorite fast foods I have to place street vended sausage. In Prague it’s called klobasa, and it’s served on a small paper tray with a slice of bread and a dollop of mustard on the side. It’s a perfect way to take a break from your work-a-day and indulge in the primeval pleasure of holding a piece of meat in your fingers, dipping it in a condiment and then chasing it with a bite of bread. Nobody knows how many calories are involved, the fat content, carbs, all of that stuff is unknown, and nobody cares.

Another Czech favorite is called “smazany syr” or fried cheese in English. It’s also vended on the street and sold in a bun with a squirt of a white sauce that is a cross between tartar and mayonnaise. It’s a great little meal for anybody on the go because you barely need to break stride while eating it.

Lastly, there is the international favorite, pizza-by-the-slice. Ordering a custom slice is out of the fast food question, so ingredient flexibility is a must. I always select a slice from the latest pie out of the oven. Whether it’s pepperoni, ham, or sausage, peppers, onions or olives, or just about any combination, a good pizza-by-the-slice must be fresh and hot. I only draw the line at seafood and pineapples. Those are two things that do not belong on a pizza, and just the sight will send me to the next pizza take-away stand.
