The nights that I order Asian food in the USA, I know two things: 1. I need to wear my fat jeans tomorrow and 2. I'm probably not going to be able to move after consuming this greasy deliciousness.
Asian food in Asia is as different as....well, I can't even give a fair comparison (it's 7:45 am here so cut me a break) The point is, the food that I consume here is galaxies away from the junk they serve us in the US, and right now I am trying to figure out why.
WHY do the places in the US make Asian food something that is greasy, unhealthy, and that makes you gain 5 pounds from one night? The food I eat here is fresh, doesn't taste greasy, doesn't have all of these additives. It's simply prepared and delicious. It's honestly some of the best food I've ever eaten in my life. Every day when the cook arrives to my flat, my mouth begins watering and after she has created a delectable treat worthy of any of the 5 stars restaurants in NYC, I dig in an appreciate every bite. Frankly, I don't think I will be able to eat Asian food in the US again. (sorry Alex)
I have to go to class now. I just wanted to share my thoughts on this because I thinks its TERRIBLE that the Asian food we get served in the US differs so greatly from the Asian food we get here.
On a side note, I bought a bar of chocolate here. Maybe it was just the wrong brand, I don't know, I will have to give others a try...but it couldn't come close to my high standards of chocolate.
Anyone who wants to send me: chocolate, a sweatshirt, a printer, or a portable clothes dryer shoot me a note and I'll send you my address.
