Empire of Andrew Regional Message Board
Crown Burgers has the best burgers in Utah, Their signature Crown Burger is a cheeseburger with hot pastrami and is one of the most beloved burgers in the state. Like many places in Utah, it has Fry Sauce as a condiment that's popular here. They also cook the food in full view of the customer as the entire kitchen is one row of equipment along the back wall behind the counter.
If you'd ever end up in Utah and want to try it out, I'd warn you unless you have a particularly large appetite to consider getting the Jr Crown Burger because they are extremely filling.
There's also Arctic Circle, which popularized Fry Sauce in the United States. If you're unfamiliar with Fry Sauce it's a mixture of Ketchup and Mayo.
This is a hard one.
Our best to go food is probably a fresh made sandwich from the Publix deli, specifically the chicken tender sub. Publix is a grocery store only found in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, the Carolinas, and Virginia. So the only people besides myself who know of it are probably Cybus and Fel.
Chick-Fil-A is always solid. Other good ones are Pollo Tropical (only found in Florida) and Checkers, if you go there get their fries.
Cook-Out is fantastic and cheap. I especially love their spicy crispy chicken sandwich with cheese, and I get it with fries and a chicken quesadilla.
Biscuitville has great Southern breakfast food. I especially like their spicy honey chicken biscuit and their cheese grits. To my delight, they once had a shirt that read “The North has bagels. We have biscuits. The South wins.” I found that hilarious, accurate, and it appealed to my sense of Southern pride. On the breakfast topic, Waffle House hashbrowns are fantastic, especially when ordered with cheese and onions.
There’s a fantastic South American chain called Viva Chicken. I think it’s regional. I really really love their arroz chaufa, Peruvian fried rice with rotisserie chicken. They also have an incredible augas freaschas (the delightful beverages that you sometimes refer to) in the form of a fantastic and refreshing drink called Chica Morada; it’s made from purple corn and has lots of great spices and it’s awesome.
Chick-Fil-A is quite good, but I’m also a big fan of Bojangles! I love their seasoned fries and cajun chicken and their biscuits are also quite good. Popeyes has excellent “blackened” grilled chicken tenders, but I don’t care for their “cajun” fries or biscuits. Zaxby’s has good fluffy crinkle fries with seasoning and pretty good chicken.
The Charlotte region also has a great series of French cafes, Amelie’s French Bakery. I adore their macaroons and the simple but delicious croque monsieur with ham, cheese, bechamel sauce, and Dijon on a crossiant. Sadly, the Uptown Charlotte location closed and because I don’t have my car on campus, I have no way to get to the other locations.
And finally, Showmars has good chicken. The fries leave something to be desired though.
Oh, and Cast Iron Waffles has AMAZING Belgian waffles with caramel mixed into the batter to sweeten them. I like to get the cinnamon bun waffle; the basic waffle dusted with cinnamon and brown sugar, and drizzle of icing. I believe they’re a local chain.
As Timmy pointed out, Publix is a regional grocery chain. I’ve never got actual prepared food from there; but when we go to the beach, we get sandwich making supplies from the local Publix and they have excellent deli counter meats; I’m especially fond of their sliced buffalo chicken, and honey turkey.
Oh! Since we are on the topic:
There was a coffee shop in uptown Charlotte I adored. Subsecreto, right by the light rail, which meant I had easy access from campus. An enigmatic, mysterious, rather odd little coffeeshop that was magic themed, had such strange objects for decor (such as a phrenology head, an authentic Turkish fez, huge comfy leather chairs, a book to anonymously write secrets in, a painting of a witches sabbath, and more) and (I kid you not!) a bookshelf door that slid open to the bathroom and a workshop which held a fashion company where the company founder helped designed a new armored backpack for the military (which he showed to me, along with various prototypes of it, and there were several veterans who came in at times to try it on). The owner claimed to be a former Blackwater operative. The barista made an utterly amazing variety of coffee and teas; such as “The Crucible” (a chai latte), “A Cold Day In Hell” (iced coffee, but flavored with something that I think involved chili peppers? It was fantastic!), among others. Their secret was a huge, fancy, brass-covered espresso machine. When I first started school at UNCC the barista and I became pals, and he recommended restaurants and patiently listened to my rambling about the things I learned or books I read.
Fittingly, and true to its theme, the place mysteriously vanished in the summer of 2019 and the owner vanished from all social media. It was utterly bizzare; there was absolutely zero indication they were closing, they were there one day and then, literally the next day, there was no trace they had ever been there! I miss it so much! I yearn for their amazing coffees and the eccentric owner and the friendly barista.
I've never been much of a coffeeshop regular myself (though I do enjoy coffee), but it sounds like it would be hard to stay away from Subsecreto. Here in the UK, a popular coffeeshop drink is London Fog, or earl grey tea with steamed milk and vanilla syrup, though I'm pretty sure it was invented in Canada. Either way, that drink alone is certainly worth a visit.
I actually went to my first Cook-Out when I was last at the beach in North Carolina, and thought it was superb. I was more excited about the watermelon milkshake than anything, and it did not disappoint.
My family used to go to the local Cook-Out once a week for food and milkshakes (I typically ordered a cheeseburger with fries and a chicken quesadilla on the side, as well as a caramel cheesecake milkshake for dessert), and even though we don't go there as often nowadays I must say it is definitely a nice place to visit. Additionally, I'd have to say Waffle House and Chick-Fil-A are nice places (even though I haven't been to them in quite some time), and I definitely cannot forget about Bojangles (I really love their seasoned fries, which are some of the best I've ever had)...Interestingly enough, ever since the pandemic started, my family doesn't go out to these restaurant chains as much anymore. Instead, we've either stayed home and cooked whatever we have at our place or we go to a local family-owned Mexican restaurant that is very close to our home.
I've passed some Publix grocery stores before in the past (maybe even a few times while vacationing in Florida, though I've more than likely never noticed them when I was there), but I've never actually gone to them. I know for a fact that there's one not too far from where I live, and I'm pretty sure that my mom goes there for groceries nowadays since she stopped going to WalMart.
An excerpt from my factbook on the Skedar that goes over the Holy Temple, which served as the center of Jaalism (the primary religion worshiped by the Skedorian nations for countless generations). I'm getting a bit stuck on the religion section of the factbook, but since I've finished this little part of it, I've decided to share it with all of you.
Great work Fel! Glad to see some development on the Skedar's religion.
Excellent work Cybus- this is a crucial bit of new lore. The exact details of what happened during the early Cybusian Empire have been undefined for years, and several big questions are now answered (such aa the origin of the word "Cybusian" itself); also, I had never considered the existence of "proto-Evolved", which was a fascinating revelation. I appreciate the Russian influence- the conflicts between the boyars reminded me of Ivan the Terrible and his insane reign. The evolution of your nation and Cybusian culture feels far more natural than before; instead of Alex simply creating the Evolved and having them immediately start off with advanced technology, Arcadia seems to have advanced in time like Earth, with the Cyb and proto-Evolved originating as tribes and taking centuries to establish off-world colonies. Another great revelation is that the Cybusians were not always xenophobic, genocidal, or religious extremists, instead it was rather nuanced, with the Rakovsky family being exceptionally liberal for the time (save for slavery).
Overall, I believe that this casts Alex in much more negative light, even within the Empire. Alex reversed Nikolai Rakovsky's reforms, promoted a hardline and fundamentalist version of Mercerism, began massive wars of conquests that saw the worst atrocities in the EOA universe be committee (such as the extinction of entire sapient species and the desolation of whole star systems), and created then enslaved the Orsonians for this dirty work. Alex's reign was so extreme that his slaves finally broke their chains and rose up (only possible because of his own incompetence and arrogance), starting a 1,000 year long war that nearly destroyed the Cybusian Empire, devastated billions upon billions of worlds (including Arcadia itself), and led to his own death at the hands of a slave. In the previous version of your history, there was at least no precedent of a previous ruler before Alex. Now, it really just looks like he totally botched everything.
