@MrPPincer, generally I don't mind westernized versions, sometimes they are really good, like Indian food in England. And New York pizza is better than the Napoli version as far as I am concerned. The three types of food that I had a chance to compare, are Korean, Chinese and Thai. Thai can be really good here but a lot of the time they put a lot of sugar and cut on spice. Like I say,... far away little towns in Canada, like Mattawa, may have a really good Thai cook who loves his food and makes authentic dishes even if it makes no business sense. Korean food is usually ok in Toronto, just not quite authentic, can't put my finger on it. Somehow not as exciting. For one thing, you know what you ordered in advance. Chinese is mostly fake and standardized but large cities usually have a few good places.
