    Sure, but the Americanized versions of Italian, German, or Chinese foods were made by immigrants adapting their traditional recipes with ingredients they had on hand.

      Just like how italian, German, and Chinese foods came about! America is just more recent and we tend to keep the labels of the influences ao it is more obvious.

      Well, that and adjusting to suit mainstream tastes. Like how garlic bread is largely a Western introduction in Korea, but is preferred sweet there instead of savory.

      Development of cuisine is a fascinating thing!

      I can’t speak for German or Chinese food, but having been to Italy, a good NYC slice beats anything the Italians have to offer.
