In honor of America’s recent success in the 2012 summer Olympics, Amelia’s Diner has decided to highlight the best dishes on its delicious American food menu. American food is a term thrown around loosely, and while it implies dishes inspired by American history and culture, the origins of these recipes are a bit difficult to trace.
As a melting pot and hodge-podge of ethnicities, America has embraced foods from around the world and consequently can take little ownership in their beginnings. Considering this, the definition of American food lays in one simple description – dishes that are cheap, inventive, creative, and convenient.
Consider Amelia’s variety of handmade sandwiches. From the hot, sliced London broil with onions, peppers, and gravy on a hero, to the chicken avocado Panini with sun-dried tomato pesto and fresh mozzarella cheese, each of Amelia’s American sandwiches are creative and delicious!
For a taste of American breakfast, that is, breakfast recipes that are inventive and unique, try the Malibu omelet. This fluffy and scrumptious egg-delight is made with fresh eggs, avocado, turkey, and Swiss cheese. The Esposito’s omelet, made of fluffy eggs with mushrooms, sausage, and creamy mozzarella cheese, is also a delicious and inventive breakfast option serving as a quick eat, for under $10.
Lighter eaters can choose from Amelia’s fresh and crisp salad menu, or enjoy an Americanized sandwich turned wrap, while comfort-food lovers can sink their teeth into the classic American hamburger. These favored lunch specials are perfect examples of convenient, cheap eats that fit the mold of cherished American recipes.
The next time you’re in the mood for a meal that is cheap, inventive, creative, and convenient, stop by Amelia’s Diner for some delicious American food!
