4. You were too far away from the regional center of authenticity.
Edited on Mon Mar-28-05 01:40 PM by mcscajun
It's basic roadfood science: the further you are from the source of any regional food, the lower the authenticity percentage.

I'm not going to eat Pizza in Ireland, or Boudin in Oregon. If I want Cajun food, I'm going to be south of I-10 or I'm making it myself at home. Likewise, if I'm outside a 100 mile radius of Philadelphia, I won't order a Philly Cheesesteak; I'll be looking for other regional food. Hell, even some of the Philly Cheesesteaks here in NJ are 'suspect'.

I can see where you'd still be upset about this even after all this time. My sympathies. :)
