Agreed on Mexican food in the UK. I was there a couple months ago and was like, "WTF is this?"

I also wasn't overly impressed with their Indian food. Maybe I had too high expectations.

Then again, if I try something, and like it, that becomes the de facto "standard" of what a food should taste like, so there's that.

I do agree it's kind of a strange question. Might as well ask why English food isn't more popular in the U.S. There is "English food" in the US (e.g. Fish and Chips), but it's served in normal, non-Englished themed restaurants. "English restaurants" are a rare thing in the U.S.
