Every country has its own traditional dishes. They’re part of their cultural identity and make them stand out from the rest. If you live in the US or are acquainted with American cuisine, you know American food has quite a reputation. However, some of these dishes don’t look the same in the rest of the world. While we’re used to making pancakes and cheeseburgers a certain way, people from Japan and Britain would be surprised by our recipes. Since we’re curious about the world’s traditional cuisine, we’ve decided to compile a list of some American dishes that look pretty different in other countries. Some foods are so different from what we know that we aren’t sure whether we’d like them if we tried them.
Sweet sandwiches made of peanut butter and jelly surprise non-Americans
There’s no doubt that Americans love sandwiches. It isn’t surprising, though; they’re convenient and portable. Apart from that, you can put almost anything in them. For instance, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches transform a typically savory meal into something sweet and irresistible.
While people from the US are used to this type of meal, non-Americans are often surprised by it. The truth is that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are mind-blowing. They’re the opposite of what you’d expect to eat when someone offers you a sandwich.
