One of the reasons I started this blog was because of the differences I've seen in Asian European cooking versus Asian American cooking. For example, I laughed when I saw what was essentially a pork schnitzel on my lo mein at a Chinese restaurant. It felt so genuinely foreign and fake to me, but then I realized that this is probably not unusual throughout the Asian diaspora. As much as people may debate the "authenticity" of a dish, what authority do any of us have to define the truth of a cuisine? (Trust me, I plan on writing a whole lot more about this...)

That being said, I am still very excited to eat as much Asian food as I can on my tour! I look forward to continuing my constant search for deliciousness.
