Foods Lost in Translation
Show Notes

On this episode, Ben and Burke look at the Japanese versions of some of their favorite foods from back home. An interesting one that often comes up amongst foreigners in Japan is Japanese pizza, but they also discuss Japanese curry versus Indian curry, Chinese food in Japan, various cheeses are that aren't quite cheese, American breakfasts in Japan, and much more. Granted, a lot of these foods aren't even native to their home countries of the US and England, so are the Japanese versions of these  foods better? Listen to find out now, and be sure to check out the background information for this discussion on Tofugu.com!
