Vice versa, there are a lot of strange name foods in Japan.
“American” means weak coffee. However, we don’t call ordinal coffee “European”, but “Regular”. Yesterday, I dropped by a Ramen shop with my friend because I didn’t afford to have decent supper. I ordered “Taiwan Ramen”, which is very hot and spicy. My friend told me Taiwan Ramen which we have in Japan doesn’t exist in Taiwan. It was one of Nagoya cuisine. Then, I found memo on the table which said that “you also order American if you prefer milder Taiwan Ramen.” Hahaha, strange! If you’d like to have a little hot spicy Ramen, you have to order “American Taiwan”.
Haha, I googled it and found instant ramen; American Taiwan Ramen. ^^
