Quasi-related to the “Things You Want to Eat Wrong” thread.
Inspired by a post in the “worst national cuisine thread.” Someone mentions “curry.” I, because of my background, culinarily and otherwise, think immediately of Japanese curry: thick, chunky, served over steamed white rice.
Doubtlessly very few of you reading this did so too. Most of you, like the person who posted in that other thread, thought of Indian curry: thinner, not as chunky, served with non-white rice.
Any other foods like that that trigger a similar situation for you? The more widespread the “other” version of the dish is, the better!
