I'd love to follow her when she comes to the US, starts casting about looking for some genuine American fried rice, and gets these blank looks.

In a similar vein, when I was a teenager and the chain was more popular, I'd imagine an Austrian tourist stopping at Der Wienerschnitzel for a taste of home and being keenly disappointed.
