I'm always suspicious of Asian renditions of western food.

Wife makes an aweful (NOT awful) killer spaghetti sauce.
Sometimes there is left-over spaghetti but no more sauce.
I take the spaghetti and make a Asian noodle dish from it !
Just add *SWEET* soy sauce (most Americans do not know it),
some shrimp and there you go.

Also keep in mind that many dishes from that area contain a LOT of sugar.

BTW, if there is sauce left over, I thaw out Rhodes rolls,
make a pizza-dough and slap that sauce over it .
Aweful huh ?
Yes, every country has its awful stuff. Yes, the packaged macaroni and cheese in the US is diabolical! And fake orange colored too. But I'm not going to get all upset just because you've pointed out that fact. Get my drift?

You'd be missing out on a lot of good stuff:
Tonkatsu
Taiwanese oyster omelette
Banh mi
Hong Kong egg tarts
Green tea ice cream
etc

Chinese egg tarts are so oily. Nothing beats the original, Pasteis de Belem de Portugal ( Portuguese tart )

Default Filipino cuisine in the United States

This might be a little off topic but it looks like a good place to post it. Filipino food gets slammed a lot and is not popular o/s the Philippines except with overseas Filipinos. Some time ago there was a thread on here about why Filipino cuisine doesn't catch on. Well, a few days ago the New York Times ran an article that says that Filipino food is the big "new" cuisine that is hot in NYC right now and that it's popularity is expected to spread to other parts of the country. You can probably easily fine the article at the Times website or I could post a link if people are interested. The article also has links to other sites stories about the Filipino cuisine scene here.

There's a category of Japanese cuisine called yoshoku that's basically Japanese versions of western dishes and a lot of it is fantastic.

Does it really matter? If it turns out tasty, then that is all that matters.

Maybe I should take that back since I've tried all of those and enjoy them.
