My thinking on this. . . .

The Americanization of "foreign" originated foods has led to this imbalance of real and fake. Examples are Taco Bell and Olive Garden.

The reason being. . . they've destroyed our taste buds. They are loaded up with salt, flavorizers, tenderizers, chemicals we can't even pronounce and fats, together causing an overstatement of tastes to create an illusion of delicious. Culinary smoke and mirrors.

Whereas, the originals are simple, fresh and healthy ingredients. The way food was intended to be. But those flavors have been diminished. And unfortunately less marketable.
