Amtrak Cooking At 90 MPH (from the FOX Files)

July 12, 2013

FOX’s Roche Madden reports from St. Louis, Missouri:

High speed train travel will be reality from St. Louis to Chicago in the near future. Amtrak has been cooking at 90 miles an hour for years.

The Southwest Chief is just one of more than a dozen overnight Amtrak trains that serve 2.3 million meals in the dining car a year.. The Texas Eagle which passes through St. Louis does the same. The menu choices are not the basic meat and potatoes.

Amtrak Executive Chef Daniel Malzhan said they serve a variety of food. “Mahi mahi with a poblano sauce verde, Thai coconut curry noodle, a Dog Fish Head Ale-braised turkey shank,” he said.

Customers like Traci Karpf love the food. “I think it was excellent; it always is,” she said.
