People tend to say that there’s no arguing about food. Everyone has different tastes and the world offers something for everyone’s needs. But when it comes to the best food, going to the US probably wouldn’t cross everyone’s minds as the country is most commonly known for its junk food. But this Australian girl documented her food journey in the US so well, it will make anyone fall in love and maybe even melt some of the hearts of those despising junk food at least a little bit.

After traveling for 16 hours from Queensland, Australia to San Francisco, starting her trip with an In-N-Out burger felt like just the right thing to do. Double-Double with animal sauce. Luckily, it was all worth the hassle as the Aussie commented that she “would fly 16 hours again for this burger”.

Despite having Krispy Kreme in Australia, she paid a visit to them in the US as well and did not regret it even one bit. “Gosh, they’re better here,” she said. “Selected was an original glaze, followed by a second original glaze.”

She felt it was worth throwing in a pic of herself enjoying a donut just to prove how good they actually were.

She was also beyond excited about those cute Chinese takeaway boxes: “chinese from Uber eats. It was delicious and came in the first little Chinese takeaway boxes I’ve eaten from. More excited about this than I should have been. Also, coffee mate in the background, how am I going to live without you at the end of this trip?”
