Default Food Court at your local shopping mall?

How would you judge it?

Is it a shining example of multiculturalism?

Or more a salute to accessible mediocrity?

Mediocrity. That's how I describe the food court at the mall nearest me
and at 99% of the malls I have visited in other regions.

Never seen a five star....let alone a one star.


When you speak of 'stars', you're referring to the Michelin rating
system. Which only has 3 stars maximum.

No stars for you! Next!

Um... on salt and fat content? A resounding ten!

Fat is definately shiny. Shiny fatty pieces of oriental chicken.
Shiny donuts.
Shiny everything.

Or more a salute to accessible mediocrity?


More like a middle finger salute to health...?

Incorrect. There is also the Mobil Travel Guide's system, which
has five stars maximum, awarded to such places as Lutece and
Jean-Georges in NYC, and Charlie Trotter's in Chicago.

Live and learn. Next!

Many local newspapers use a star rating system, but they're hardly
well-known authorities on gourmet cuisine.

The default star rating system is Michelin.

The Mobil Travel Guide is a very well-known authority on gourmet cuisine
in the United States. It's the USA's equivalent of the Michelin Guide.
The Mobil Guide is most certainly *not* a local newspaper - it's nation-
wide.

The default star rating system is Michelin.


Only in Europe. There is no Michelin Red Guide for the USA (or any
part of it).

Depends on the mall.

Is it a shining example of multiculturalism?


In one mall in the region, yes.

Or more a salute to accessible mediocrity?


In most of the rest of them, yes.
