In some ways Taiwan, Singapore actually do western food, especially American food, better than Australia. I had a great Philly cheese steak in Taipei. You can't even get Philly cheese in Australia. It's not hard to make anyway, I actually get oyster-blade beef from the Korean grocery to make it.
Well that was in UB. I just contrasted how bad the Chinese were at trying to make Western food with the Mongolians probably from their long interactions with Russians. I will say the Thais and Koreans can make Western food fabulously.

Well Russian food is quite different to what we think of as 'western food' which is more American-British. I saw an episode of No Reservations where Anthony Bourdain went to Harbin, with it's strong Russian influence, and apparently good Russian food can be had there.

Western food is pretty common and good in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and tourist parts of Thailand. In some cases they do it better than Australia, especially American-style food.

1. Turkey
2. China
3. Japan
4. Israel
5. Thailand
6. Georgia
7. Uzbekistan
8. Philippines
9. Korea
10. India

Turkey, China, Japan, and Israel are top notch. The next four are okay, Korea is mediocre, and after that it gets really bad. Russian, Bangladeshi, and Indian food doesn't appeal to me at all
