Which reminds me of a TV interview from the race-pits with F1s boss Bernie Ecclestone, before the first race started some years back.JR8 wrote:Quite.

Interviewer: And are you enjoying your time here in SG?
BE: Having a great time, lovely weather, great food.
Int: And what food have you enjoyed?
BE: ... errr, well, Singapore Noodles.
But 'Singapore Noodles' doesn't exist here, just like Chicken Tikka Masala (once hailed by a tabloid paper as 'Britain's New National Dish' replacing fish and chips!) doesn't exist in India. These are Britishified dishes with a take from those respective cuisines.
p.s. I have been to mainland China (ignoring HK for the time being where I went when it was British). But I went to Guangzhou, and it would have been c'90?. Maybe it's changed, but I recall the food being shockingly bad, verging on inedible (and I'm far from a fussy eater!). So when I imagine 'Chinese food' I think of HK where I had some extremely good meals.
My early experience in China what with the food and the apparent demeanour of many of the locals has unfortunately rather put me off ever returning ... <shame> ...
Edit: Sorry I only see now that this topic has veered quite badly ...
