Small Family Restaurants

It is a summer hot afternoon -- still too hot for going out, but the street vendors already occupy the sidewalks and the small family restaurants set up their tables outside their adjacent to the sidewalk kitchens. Some people tell me that I should not eat there because food may not be clean or fresh, but I can easily see that these places are really popular and in about one two hours they will be full. I can see all families busy preparing the meals, including young children and old people. If you look around, the whole street seems to be filled with small business, everyone here is occupied and well organized. The smell of the food is spreading around people slowly come out. You can find here everything, all kinds of the dishes, snacks, barbecue, specialty food, get beer or other drinks (including hard liquor) -- all in the plain view right on the sidewalk. Let me be clear, I am not talking about a food-stand here. These are real restaurants - you get a menu (sometimes with pictures), you are served by a waitress (usually the owner) and you are getting a proper bill. But, there is no any sale tax here, any tips or anything unexpected added to the bill.
I have a very strange feeling that this "free market" that keeps these families together and out of poverty is something long lost in America. Why in hell I have to travel to a communist country to see freedom of commerce?
Yes, I forgot ... we have McDonald's for poor people (to work and eat there).

Just like the Octo-slam at Denny's. 8 eggs, no sausage, and the guy behind you has to pay for it.

And it's so convenient

that McDonald's and obamacare both have clowns as representing them.

New slogan: McDonald's - proud sponsor of everything.

McDonald's - we know you'll be back.
