Fast Food: Not Your Usual Suspects

quick_bites

Fast food nowadays is synonymous with unhealthy, caloric, trans fat and quick takeout food. By definition, however, fast food is “food that can be prepared quickly and easily and is sold in restaurants and snack bars as a quick meal or to be taken out” (source, Google). Fast food has gotten a bad rep. There are some up-and-coming fast food joints that are shaking things up by offering with healthy, fresh and delicious quick bites.

When I’m on the go, these are my favorite spots. I’ve shared some of my favourite run-of-the-mill fast food franchises, and some relatively unknown spots too.
