Fast food

The term given to food served in a public eating place, which arrives very quickly and is generally consumed at the same pace. The term was coined in the U.S.A during the second half of the twentieth century.

Food of this type includes hamburgers and some simply types of pizza - the style rather overlaps 'street food'.

The antithesis is 'slow food'. See 'The Slow Food Society'; 'Street Food'
