But actually, a lot of what we call "Chinese food" here is stuff that isn't really eaten in China at all, but was rather created by Chinese immigrants in North America.

Ginger beef was actually created in my home city. And fortune cookies are considered an American novelty in China.

The food is pretty much the exact same. The Chinese have some weird soups that you don't see here, less beef dishes, etc. but the sauces and spices (i.e. taste) are basically the same.

yeah a lot of countries have their own version of Chinese. Chinese is big in India but it's a bit different than in the US.

when you say greek/mediterranean lets face it you're talking about kebab

i mean hummus & falafel & rice and all of that is great but the main event is kebab is it not

idk i like to-go food, street food, stuff you can eat standing up

I ALSO FEEL IT IS RACIST TO SAY ITS GREEK FOOD BECAUSE ITS MOSTLY FROM TURKEY & SYRIA AFAIK

Greek food is different from food in the Middle East. It's similar, but it's not the same. They definitely do falafel and humus and pita better in the Middle East though

Not that that slop isn't delicious at times. But is it crave worthy? No
