archaicacid said: I wonder if it’s a Japanese stereotype? because tbh I usually don’t consider turkish or chinese foods super gourmet haha
I’ve never had Turkish food but authentic Chinese food is actually really great! The American-Chinese fast food version popularized here (Panda Express, etc), noooot what I would consider gourmet.
That does put things a bit in perspective though, because here in the US there’re a lot of gourmet Italian restaurants and not as many Chinese ones, and in Japan it might be the other way around.
