Welcome to the Cuisine of Have-It-Your-Way

Customized dining has never been easier, according to a recent Washington Post article outlining the proliferation of tell-them-what-you-want food chains. Similar to burrito joint Chipotle (where diners watch as an employee builds them a custom Mexican-inspired meal), new franchises bring the ultimate in custom-food to Korean, 5-minute cook time pizza, tacos, Indian, and Mediterranean restaurants.

Possible Preaching Angle:

It's a great thing for diners, but also prompts us to ask—in a culture where everything is convenient and exactly how you want it, what will happen to the spiritual growth experienced when we think of the world as a place where we don't get our way?
