Especially popular in the American south, this crispy chicken is as delicious as it is unhealthy. Don’t be shy about eating with your hands.

Speaking of fried chicken…the name refers to the batter, commonly used for fried chicken. Because this is America, where we even fry steaks sometimes.


4. Thanksgiving dinner

Giving thanks is easy when turkey, mashed potatoes, bread stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce are involved. It’s just like the Thanksgiving meal you had on campus.

We’re not sure where the Joe part comes in, but this tangy ground beef sandwich sure can be sloppy, or messy. Worth every napkin.


6. Grilled cheese sandwich

This comforting sandwich combines melted cheese and bread that’s toasted golden brown. To be healthy, ask for tomato too. Or be American and ask for bacon instead.


7. Meatloaf


A loaf….of meat? Yes. A loaf of meat. Ground beef (and sometimes ground pork too). You can expect to find this curious but popular dish in the dining hall regularly.
