CULTURAL APPROPRIATION?

There are dining cars on German trains, even 'though a long train journey is four hours or so.

The menus change out every so often.  Recently the featured item was chili con carne.  With a dollop of sour cream.  That prompted a discussion on international ferroequinologist Twitter over whether sour cream is proper in chili con carne.  It is.  That's common in cantinas Stateside, and the sour cream is a way of garnishing soljanka.

Meanwhile, Amtrak passengers get to be grateful that there might be some hot food in the Contemporary Dining Experience.
