Land of Faces

Face-saving, facial surgery, superficial, or better, an amalgam of the three: superfacial.

Land of the Superfacial.

I have a friend who says "Land of Almost" because attempts at Western stuff like spaghetti sauce and hot dogs are never quite right.

The lack of self-awareness is amusing, yet far too common.

Your friend does realize that much of what is called "spaghetti sauce" back home (I'm assuming he's American given the talk about hot dogs) would be viewed with similar contempt by actual Italians, right? And that's before we get to what constitutes pizza, sausages, Chinese food, Mexican, etc.

I hope your friend is joking because if he truly is that unaware then that's pretty sad that his entire conception of the country is based on such ridiculousness.

I mean, for goodness sakes: Pizza Hut. Need I say more?

Oh come on, that orange goo that Ottogi sells as spaghetti sauce speaks volumes. It's not like they don't know any better, it's Koreans cutting corners selling Lotte chocolate without any actual expensive cacao in it.

Dude, all candy bar chocolate is cheap crap. You don't get real chocolate until you go to an actual chocolatier. As opposed to what? Some Ferrero Rocher crap? It's like saying Maxim isn't real coffee but you're comparing it to Maxwell House.

Same with Ottogi spaghetti sauce (which is not the only spaghetti sauce made in Korea and ceased to be back in like, 2009). "Ottogi? I'm not eating that fake slop. Give me PREGO!"

You know what speaks volumes? Pizza Hut. Chicken BBQ Pizza. PF Changs and Panda Express. Hot Dogs. Chef Boyardee. Ethnic Gourmet Frozen Chicken Tikka Masala. Taco Bell. Cronuts. Chicago Deep Dish Pizza. Chicago Hot Dogs. St. Louis Pizza. Del Taco. Domino's Pizza. Annie Chun's Kimchi Noddle Soup Bowl. Southwestern BBQ Pork Shwarma.

Are people seriously that oblivious to what gets done to foreign food back home?

+1 so much sugar and salt.

Tomato juice here is sweet too.

Koreans don't like a salty tomato taste.

Korean made spaghetti sauce is Michelin level stuff, compared to the ones in the Phillippines. It's basically watered down ketchup + loads of sugar there.

Are you talking the rosé sauce? That's because it's a blend of tomato sauce and cream sauce. Most of the others are red. Also, there should be like, 3-4 different brands of Korean spaghetti sauce you can buy, and that's before you get to the import options.

You can also make your sauce from scratch.

Finally, welcome to being an immigrant.

I have tried to make sauce from scratch, but the local tomatoes are completely void of flavour. Even roasting them didn’t bring out any flavour!

I ended up buying Italian tomato sauce to use as a base.

Not sweet, but just... neutral.
