...not getting the 'dumbed down for american taste' dishes at ethnic restaurants?
some personal examples as to why i pose such a question:
(1) It was a revelation for me to try authentic (real!)chinese cuisine --only when-- i was treated to perhaps the one of the most fantastic meals of my life... a birthday dinner from a woman friend of mine from shanghai.
(2) After eating thai food at a songkran festival, i avoid thai restaurants like the plague...only because i know i will be inevitably underwhelmed.
