Your least favorite "ethnic" cuisine

Have to agree with a couple posters upthread.

R5 is right IMO about the majority of restaurant Italian food. It tastes like they've reduced the taste of the food down to the lowest level trying to please everyone. They've cut back on, or removed, a lot of the seasonings that makes Italian food so good. To me, too often, it tastes like they don't use good quality ingredients either. And forget any of the dishes that traditionally require long slow cooking.

The only places that seem to do it right anymore are the mom and pop little hole in the wall places.

Also partialy agree with R7 on Mexican food. Way too much of the Americanized Mexican food is bland and/or covered in tons of melted cheese. Spicy dishes are so hot that there is no flavor only the heat from the spices. None of it tastes fresh, and slow cooked dishes taste like they've been cooking untended on a back burner for a week.

I use to think I didn't like Mexican food until friends I was visiting in southern California, in the San Diego and North San Diego County area, insisted that I had to try the Mexican food in their area. Everything tasted fresh, distinct flavors, the ubiquitous side dish of beans were good. There's even a chain of fast food Mexican places that are so much better than the crappy Mexican restaurants in my area.

My friends told me it was a certain regional type of Mexican food, but I can't remember the name of it :(

Could the bad Italian have to do with not being able to get authentic Italian ingredients when they immigrated back when? They probably had to make do with what was available therefore adapting to what they could get. I went to an Italian the other day and their red sauce was way too sweet as if they had dumped a cup of sugar in it. They also never use enough garlic or spices in restaurants. When I make a meat sauce at home I use lots of garlic and spices and add wine to the sauce too. People love it. When I'm at restaurants I usually try to stay away from their red sauces and stay with piccatas or marsalas.

Interesting wiki entry about Italian-American cuisine.

by Anonymousreply 2211/06/2013

When you order Chinese or Viet Namese cuisine in an ethnic restaurant, ask them to hold the fish sauce or substitute a small amount of soy sauce. It will really improve the taste IMHO.

Likewise Americanized versions of many cuisines have substituted canola oil for lard, and drastically cut down the amount of fat to make healthier versions of traditional dishes. Adding barely cooked vegetables and more spices also makes a drastic improvement.

Incorrect. They took something perfectly healthy and made it bad for you. Canola oil is poison as are all seed oils. Lard is what our bodies have evolved to consume. Do you think primal humans hunted down their prey only to throw away the valuable fat? No, they ate the whole animal.

Look at pictures of people 100 years ago when everyone ate lard and never saw the inside of a gym. No fatties. Look at us now that we have substituted seed oils for lard and started eating a "healthy" low fat, high carb diet--everyone is obese.

Oh, no, R27. You do not want to cook seafood for a long time. It shouldn't take an hour. It is quite a bit of prepwork, though, to make cioppino.

R28, that's exactly how my father made sauce. He got it from his next-door neighbor, who was from Naples, IIRC. I started off making it that way, but I don't like oregano or dried basil, so at some point I bought Marcella Hazan's first cookbook (now incorporated in Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking), which deals with the cooking of Emilia-Romagna in northern Italy.

I make her Bolognese more often than any other meat sauce. It's about four hours from start to finish, and of course, it's better the next day.

BTW, do you put wine in your sauce? It's so good.

Honest to god, you would not know what "ethnic" food tatsted like in the US. Its all Americanised so that ten month old cold store vegetables and force fed meats are coverd in slop (what you call sauces) and processsed cheese to hide tha fact the food is rotten.

Southern European is not cooked in lard, it is cooked in olive oil which is why heart disease barely exists there. Asian food done properly is very delicately flavoured (and VERY fresh. Not covered in sauces, lots of salads use fresh fruit. Mango salad. Yum. And replacing fish sauce with soy. AHHHHHHH. ASian foods are designed to balance flavours. You know sweet and sour.

So the worst Ethnic food I would say is New York. Can't you make a sandwich without the white gunk you call mayonaise or the processed chees slop. And as for the bacteria infested buffets and salad bars!!! Inedible.

There is no such thing as "American". Our cuisine was brought over with our ancestors and whatever countries they were from and adapted. Maybe chili as it was first made in San Antonio, German man btw, and popular among cowboys. A chicken fried steak is merely a schnitzel but instead of veal it's beef.

Yes, we have processed food but so does Europe and Japan seems to lead with packaged, weird foods.

I've had some excellent Colombian food. Mesquite spit-roasted chicken, nice steaks, fried plantains, arepas, empanadas. I also like Ethiopian food. I've had Russian food once and liked it... I must be odd.

The least favorite ethnic food I've had is Polish, hands down. Greasy and gristly. Is there anymore need to consume gristle in the U.S. in 21st century? Their peasant ancestors had to, but restaurants don't have to serve it.

Thanks for the warning--I'll make it a point to avoid Ethiopian restaurants, not that I was terribly curious to begin with.

I'm told that up until about 30 years ago or so, there were some decent Scandinavian and Swiss restaurants in NY. The Scandinavian ones may have justifiably disappeared but Swiss food isn't bad at all, at least in Switzerland.

Bad versions of Italian cooking are the norm in the US, but it's not extremely difficult to find excellent, authentic Italian and French cuisine here.

[quote]I went to an Italian the other day and their red sauce was way too sweet

I haven't eaten extensively in Italy but understand some regions use a fair amount of sugar in their marinara. Sicily, maybe?

Similarly, for me, the hallmark of bad French food is the overuse of mustard.

by Anonymousreply 7211/06/2013

That's the vegetable platter at r65. Don't remember what they call it but it is 5 or 6 of their veggie dishes laid out on a bed of injera, which is the bread you eat it with. I love Ethiopian and lucky to have two great places within a half mile of me. I can see how some wouldn't like it.

For me it's the love for BBQ I don't get, but I'm not a red meat eater. A coworker has a side business catering and the office pays him to cook for us a few times a year. Everyone goes gaga for it but it's blah to me. Not just the meats (I eat the chicken) but the side dishes of baked beans, coleslaw and potato salad (made with eggs - belch) that are part of Southern BBQ tradition are completely uninteresting to me.

OP, I agree with you putting "ethnic" in quotes, because nearly all of the food that's sold as "ethnic" cuisine in America bears only the faintest of resemblances to the cuisine in a corresponding area of the world. It's frankly hard to decide which one is the most bastardized, but certainly near the top of the list are China, if only because of the size of China itself (plus the fact that the regional differences in Chinese cuisine are just as large as the ones in the U.S., not that you'd ever know it from visiting a typical American "Chinese restaurant"), and Italy, because "Italian" food has become such a staple of the American diet.

While it may have technically been invented in Italy, "pizza" is almost entirely an American creation. Prior to the 20th century, the only place it existed was in Napoli (Naples), where it was street food for peasants. It doesn't really fit easily even into the basic divide of Northern Italian versus Southern Italian cuisine, never mind all of the regional subspecialties in each area. But yes, I'd guess 99% of Americans who've never traveled abroad think "Italian food" consists of little more than pizza, pasta, and meatballs.

"General Tso's chicken" is 100% American-made, and it doesn't even fit the "Hunan" description bestowed upon it. Like a lot of (actual) Chinese food, Hunan cuisine is quite spicy, though you'd never know it from the sugar-sweet glop sold as General Tso's chicken. Speaking of which, I'm trying to think if there are any countries with intensely spicy cuisine that hasn't been "dumbed down," or substantially "de-spiced," for American palates, but I can't think of any offhand. I can't even say "Indian food" as a whole has been de-spiced -- even though much of it has -- because the statement alone implies that there is any single style of "Indian food." In reality the country has even more regional variations than China, but yes, anything sold Stateside as "vindaloo" bears next to no resemblance to true vindaloo, which leaves the first-time eater sweaty and gasping for air and water. True Thai food is similar in that context, at least the hot stuff.

For the most part Americans can't even get "Mexican food" correct, and it's literally next door! Burritos and hard-shell tacos, or at least the versions we would describe as such, originated in California. (Soft tacos are technically Mexican, but originated primarily in Baja California, which is largely separate in all respects from the rest of the country.) Fajitas and chimichangas are pure Tex-Mex and came from Houston, still the origin point of Mexican food in America (and where it became most bastardized). You can at least find true Mexican food in larger cities as well as most border states, particularly California, New Mexico and Texas, where it's generally labeled "interior Mexican" to avoid confusion, but it's generally sold as a higher-end type of cuisine.

Anyway, I guess my point is that you shouldn't knock a certain kind of "ethnic cuisine" unless you've had a chance to try *actual* ethnic cuisine. Personally -- and having tried the real thing -- I see little redeeming value in the traditional foods of Russian and most of Eastern Europe, areas where the growing season is short and the winters are terrible. It's literally meat and potatoes, and for the most part not much else.

Finally, I must point out the particular idiot at R51, who has somehow managed to describe the literally hundreds of types of cuisine available in New York City, one of the most multicultural cities on the planet, as a single type of "ethnic food." (And btw the "white gunk" you describe as mayonnaise not only isn't a New York invention, but originally came from Western Europe (both Spain and France). It's also even more commonplace in the American Southeast than it is in New York, where one generally doesn't encounter it outside of sandwiches.)

Polish and Hungarian food is great when we make it at home ourselves. It's never good in a restaurant. I suspect this is because it's mostly pretty simple food, so the quality of ingredients and proper preparation is paramount. Most eastern European restaurants just toss frozen potato patties into yucky day-old oil and call them potato pancakes.

I'm not saying it's up there with French cuisine, but it can be really good.

I the fuck don't like Ethiopian. It looks like Poop on a Pizza Platter. The only time I ever ate it, I picked up this lump of food with the Handi-Wipe-like bread and ended up with half a hard-boiled egg in my mouth.

I HATE hard-boiled eggs. I continued to eat the rest of the meal, but it was pretty awful. Too many years have passed for me to remember exactly what the rest was, and I never went back. A hard-boiled egg. Vile.

And as usual, Babytaster frames the argument in terms of "Whatever Food I'm Defending against You Savages" v. "The Wonder Bread Everyone but Me Eats." There are more things to eat in the world than that, Babytaster. More things in the world.

R108, I'm from Detroit. If there are any outstanding Eastern European restaurants around here, I've never found them. Polish Village in Hamtramck isn't bad, but can't touch homemade. There are some outstanding places to get Kielbasa and other ethnic meats like Srodek's and Polish Market, however.

I just get the ingredients and make stuff like pierogi and stuffed cabbage a few times a year. It's just as well, since it's all so carby and fattening!

I've only had Salvadorian food once. Pupusas which are stuffed maize dough tortillas. Maybe the place I got them at skimped on the fillings, but they were pretty awful.

Another Detroiter here. Agree about the Polish food. Some is good, some is dreadful.

For some weird reason that nobody's been able to explain to me, we have a huge presence of Greek restaurants here. Not just because we have an area called "Greektown" with its own casino, but even in the suburbs. They're everywhere. The food all tastes the same, as if they just xerox one menu in a headquarters somewhere and all the Greek restaurants have to follow it. Unfortunately, they all have a pile of tepid, yellowish-green canned peas on almost all of the plates. Disgusting, baby food-like mush. Why?

R118, Japanese food is healthier, with less spice, oil and a cleaner subtlety of flavor. Japanese food is also almost as much about the presentation as it is about the flavor. Chinese food is oilier and, depending on the region, uses more salt and spice.

That said, I love both cuisines about equally.

R87, R90, Traditional Jewish food can be awful or delicious depending on the skill of the cook. Important to use a minimum amount of oil, and add garlic and seasoning as well.

For example as a poster mentioned on the German and Polish threads, potato pancakes made incorrectly can taste like old shoe leather, an imitation of fast food hash brown patties, or a vast improvement on a very cheap dish. (I put mine in the blender and pan fry them in a minimum of olive oil, after adding spices and onion.)
