first date should always be pick her up in yr honda accord and go to asian bakery and follow with boba tea. second date should be at a nice dim sum place. third date you take her to a shitty hole in the wall pho place and follow with billiards. fourth is korean tofu soup/bbq then karaoke. there is no fifth date because she hates your guts and never wants to speak to you again

Nah. REAL Cantonese food are too freaking oily. They use too much oil to the point that all plates look shiny like your high shine shoes. Come to  any restaurants in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan and you know what I mean. Cantonese food in the State are modified. 

I prefer Viet version of Chinese food, much less oily. Or Japanese food, so pure.

Either way, salad and other toppings should always be served on the side.

And yeah, you're def right about "Cali viet" places, but I'd say the cover-ups are less about herbs and trappings and more about hoisin/sriracha. Good broth never needs either of those. The sauces are good for dipping your meat in but many times I think people put too much of the sauces in the broth, but I'm not one to tell someone not to order a well-done steak.

 

I did not say they don't use herbs at all. Pho in nothern style still have a bunch of herbs but no salad and bean sprouts.

I'd be a lot bigger on ramen, I think, if I didn't live in Japan
I only eat it like once every two months, but I have a craving for Pho every two days

My favorites are spicy miso (shown here served cold) and a simple soy-sauce broth with thin, jagged, slightly al-dente noodles. Both of these places are in the countryside of northern Japan

You are crazy. Hong Kong Chinese food is the best in the world. Toronto and Vancouver are actually very similar.

The Vietnamese version, IMO, lacks the warmth of real Cantonese food. I like Japanese food, but it is completely different. Much more precise and austere. Much less joyful.

Precise and austere might be true when describing sushi/sashimi but there's a lot of other foods too. A big pot of sukiyaki or mountains of yakitori and beer is a pretty fun and relaxed meal.

Sushi from Friday night.. neither precise nor austere (yes, there's rolls of rice hiding under there somewhere)



There's plenty of relaxed ways of spinning Japanese food, people here like eating and socializing just as much, if not more, than anywhere else

Of course I'm overgeneraluzing, but I've not seen a cooking method as exuberant as the Cantonese wok. My father is pretty typically Cantonese in his insistence that food be served searingly hot, straight out of the wok. There are other cooking methods, of course, but the wok sets the tone.

I know much les about Japanese food, so I'm happy to be told differently about it.

I was so underwhelmed by the food in HK.

 

Had, like, 3 great meals and 50 'ok'.

American food beats all.

 

There's a reason we're the #1 country in the world.
