America's food confusion 12 5, 8:55am

@AmericanButterfly That's true, spaghetti and meatballs is a fine Italian-American dish, which in turn is a respectable regional Italian cuisine. Just like you won't find corned beef and cabbage in Ireland - Irish immigrants in NYC's Lower East Side adopted corned beef because it was cheap and tasty.

This is by no means limited to Americans, either. I have a joke every year that my family is going to have a traditional Japanese Christmas dinner: Kentucky Fried Chicken and sponge cake with strawberries. :)
