Go to an “ethnic” restaurant. Briefly describe the ethnicity of the restaurant and discuss how do you know what ethnicity the restaurant represents. What aspects of the restaurant is actually culturally part of the mainstream culture? Based on the comparison, just how “ethnic” is this restaurant?

One restaurant combines three countries in Asia together. The interior of the restaurant was furnished with couples of wooden tables and chairs, three big pictures with a lot of different fish with Japanese named on the wall.

The food, such as Sushi, Sashimi and
