Authentic restaurants that tastes like where it claims to be from

I want to start a thread. We have such a diverse population in NJ but there're too many restaurants that are fusion or American modified (very little difference between these two descriptions).
I want a thread that lists all the restaurants (along with recommended dishes) that refuses to bend to what the general public wants by bringing a lot of authenticity. This is for any continent, country, and region. Even domestic (creole, cajun, southwest, midwest, native American, cali, etc).

Examples would be, most authentic Korean Chinese (used to be Crystal palace), cantonese (non dimsum), dimsum, florentene, alsatian, sicilian, swedish, dutch, tuscan, okinawan, Canadian poutine, German, vietnamese, etc. You get the picture.

I've looked all over the board and it's hard to find these places where you can go out to really discover a region. I for one enjoy discovering and would love to do so when we do decide to go out for a meal.
