Authentic vs. Westernized ramen (split from Ontario board)

Why does a place have to be "authentic" 99.9% of the people who will eat there probably have never been to Japan for Ramen nor Vietnam for Pho.. if it tastes good at a reasonable price point then you will may a sucessful business in a recession. If you start bringing over Noodle makers from Japan and importing strange ingredients that most people have never heard of you will loose money. If I want Authentic I go to the little hole in the wall places .. I do not complain that Ho Lee Chow is not Authentic because it should not be it is what it is...

At least they tell you here that they are not trying to be authentic they say they will serve a Westernised version.. so do not hold this against them..
