    and i actually like that

    my wife literally considers KFC as thai food
    and is that such a horrible thing?
    KFC is absolutely part of the Thai culture in a bit
    Yeah I see the value in showing that it was part of the culture, just thought too much time was spent on it.

    The food truck that they showed was awesome. Love how they sent the locations out on twitter and people were lined up waiting.

    thinking about it
    I would consider Chinese fast food as part of the food culture in Boston/NYC
    in Boston, it is these small take out only places on every other block
    in NYC, you have sam type small Chinese restaurants that cater to the black community. a lot more fried items and such

    I don't know how good the Chinese is in NYC or Vancouver but it blows here in the Bay Area. There was an article written in the Chronicle as well. The article attributed it to all the poor immigrants that came/come here that are used to this low quality from what they ate in China. And they're the one's opening these restaurants. There is a big demand for upscale Chinese here. Which doesn't necessarily mean expensive and fancy. Just cleaner with nicer presentation.

    I've got a friend who goes there once a year. He loves it, but says you have to be a bit careful there. He also said it really helps if you can speak at least basic Spanish.

    well, Vancouver has actual Chinese food halls that you would find in Hong Kong

    Boston/NYC is the very much americanized fast food version of chinese food but since we grew up on it, it is very good to us
    and cheap as it comes
    can buy 5 lbs of the stuff for 30usd and eat it for a week

    It was interesting but he already went there in one of his earlier shows as he did with Korea Town in Los Angeles last week. I wonder why he's double dipping. Colombia looks poor and boring...55

    Watching it on TrueV CNN now ... very poor sound quality! Not enjoyable.
    Cheers, Rob.
