Please stop saying "Olive garden isn't real Italian food" or "taco bell isn't real mexican food" because you're wrong and you look like a pretentious asshat. I've worked at an "authentic Italian restaurant" owned and operated by Italians. They served spaghetti there, do you know what they serve at Olive Garden? Spaghetti. Pasta doesn't undergo some transformation spell when someone with a specific bloodline makes it.
Same thing for taco bell. I've been to mexico, I've eaten at homes of Mexican folk, a taco is a taco. It's a tortilla with a bunch of random shit in it every time. At taco bell, and in Juarez. And half the time at taco bell a Mexican is making your meal so where's your argument now?
The real issue is that this "x isn't real food" platitude conjures up this notion that all food in Italy and Mexico is just delicious. Go to Italy, and I can guarantee you there is a restaurant that serves over cooked pasta and stale breadsticks. Same thing with Mexico and their chimmychangas.

Calls itself Champagne.
It does not even resemble the real thing except it has huge bubbles and real champagne does not have huge bubbles. Larger is not always better.
This would not even make a good mouthwash.

To sum this up.
Shakespeare's "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet".
The Taco bell taco is some distorted version of Mexican food. If you are starving it could fill you up yet for about the same money you can have real meat and real home made Salsa's instead of some crap in a packet called hot sauce. Because the Mexican Taco uses real meat it may cost a few pennies more than the fake Taco Bell that is more Fat than meat. Its saving grace is that morticians want people to eat Taco Bell products because its good for the morticians business. They will get you one way or the other but will get you sooner rather than later.
