    Sure you can, anyone can put a plate next to another plate and taste test.

    It seems you're confusing quality with the experience of culture. Sure having a native dish with good company is a subjectively better experience than a better meal alone, drunk and at 2AM in a cookie cutter chain.

    What is "real food" to you? Because it seems by "real food" you mean "cultural experience."

    I don't necessarily separate the two, but that being said I do tend to find cuisine that's been taken out of its native environment to be blander as it attempts to cater to a different, and broader, clientele.

    Also, you misspelled "shawarma." Not that its even that good.

    I misspelled it to bother you.

    I will say that Vegas has some of the best Pho restaurants in the country, but not on the strip.

    I don't understand that... I really don't.

    Taste buds don't have GPS, location doesn't effect taste.

    Try eating Vietnamese food in Vietnam, everything was picked that day, or caught that day. Better by miles.

    If I were in Thailand, and someone flew the meal out to me as fast as a waiter would bring it to you in Vietnam, the taste would be no different.

    If you bolded a different part of my post you'd understand better. I shall, in my infinite goodness, demonstrate:

    Just because I "bolded" (wrong verb BTW) something does not mean I read any other part with any less understanding. I am not talking about some lowest common denominator cuisine that is more palatable to broader clientele, I am talking about the EXACT SAME MEAL in different locations tasting exactly the same; Despite company, setting or culture.

    Uh huh. Eat a filay mignon with a woman you're in love with, then eat it alone in a cold and dirty apartment after you've broken up with her. You tell me which fillet mignon tastes better.
