Everybody is entitled to their own tastes, but there are certain menu items which have become standard over time. If you use their names, then I expect my dish to reflect that standard. For example:
French Onion soup does not contain milk. Now, I live in a civilized European country, Hungary, yet it seems not one restaurant I’ve been to can grasp this simple concept. Call it “Cream of Onion” call it “Italian Onion Soup”, call it what you will, but French Onion it ain’t.
Ketchup is not pizza sauce 'Nuff said.
Do not call it a Chicago-style hotdog if yer gonna put ketchup on it.
Buffalo chicken wings are not made with BBQ sauce. Those would be called barebecue wings, you dingbat.
Capuccinos are NOT served with whipped cream. If I wanted sickly sweet cream on my coffee, I’d specify it. That said, a capuccino is generally accepted to be about 1/3 espresso, 1/3 hot milk, 1/3 milk foam
Putting cajun spices on a slab of meat and charring it to kingdom come does NOT make it Cajun.
Putting corn on your pizza does not make it Mexican (That’s specifically a Hungarian thing, I think.)
There’s many more, but these are the ones that come to mind at the moment. Any additions?
