The title of this blog describes the nature of many Asian dishes in the US. They somewhat resemble the original but they taste and look a bit different. Pad Thai, for example, looks and tastes quite a bit different from the original Pad Thai in Thailand. Pad Thai dishes in Thailand are usually made with shrimp, and look a bit pinkish. The food portion is not very much as it is not uncommon for Thai people to have multiple dishes during a meal. Here in the US, you can have Pad Thai with almost every kind of meat, and the food portion is huge.
A pinkish Pad Thai dish in Thailand has a smaller portion, and more variety of ingredients than that in the US.
The US version of Pad Thai typically has a large portion of noodles, and a few ingredients. The food portioin is easily threefold of an original Pad Thai dish.
