It’s the only restaurant that can get away with having both a hamburger and orange chicken as selections. This place not only represents the sheer abundance of malls, but also the indecisiveness of its inhabitants. People go to malls because they are pre-packaged containers that ... ... middle of paper ... ...laces like this and the mall nurtures a strong sense of nostalgia. Everyone remembers that first time they sat on Santa’s lap and told him what they wanted for Christmas, or their first kiss that happened at the movies within the mall multiplex. Good things happen at these places.

It is very easy to find a supermarket in the street and you may see many different markets just in the same street. The supermarkets are widespread in our daily lives and offer us much convenience. In the 1850s, go shopping may meant going to the far away open-air markets or specialist cheesemongers to buy the butter, cheese, fresh egg and bacon from framer and sugar, cocoa, tea and coffee from grocers (William.Y, 2004). Now you can buy all of these things in the supermarket just near your living or working place. Large supermarket chains depended on huge company or group which has sufficient funds can spread everywhere, such as Tesco.

We may not know it as a society but foraging is in our genes, some may turn their nose at it where others will get knee deep in the mud, either or it’s a choice we make. Now it would only be just, to end with a quote from the ‘godfather’ of foraging. “When you get close to the raw materials and taste them at the moment they let go of the soil, you learn to respect them” (Redzepi, 2010).
It varies from table to table, and those variations make social relationships and point out the differences. Going to McDonalds compared to going to a fancy restaurant which requires a reservation is the most obvious way of separating a social gap. Where one shops for groceries, who prepares the meals, where the food is consumed, and even the portions can close or widen a social gap between people. The store where food is bought can range between Walmart and Aldi or a specific health store and a farmers market. The person making the meal can go from a cook who is hired to the teenager making ramen noodles.

Once the highways started popping up so did fast food chains like McDonalds and Burger King. This was also a quick fix for dinner because if mom didn’t feel like cooking she could just take the family to the closet fast food restaurant for a quick and easy meal. The sixties brought along hippie food, artificial sweeteners, and French cuisine. Hippie food is considered unprocessed made from scratch foods. Since the rise of TV dinners and fast food restaurants, hippie food was hard to come by.
