American sushi is shit. When you have sashemi done by someone who has trained for more years than you have been alive to perfect it, rather than some yuppie white bitch with chopsticks in her faux dreadlocks, you will know true sushi.

The hamburger; a ground beef patty between two slices of bread, was first created in America around 1890.[4] Its origins remain unclear, with claims of its invention by Charlie Nagreen, Frank and Charles Menches, Oscar Weber Bilby, Louis Lasson and Fletcher David.[5][6] White Castle traces the origin of the hamburger to Hamburg, Germany with its invention by Otto Kuase.[7] However, it gained national recognition at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair when the New York Tribune namelessly attributed the hamburger as, "the innovation of a food vendor on the pike."[6] No conclusive claim has ever been made to end the dispute over the inventor of the hamburger with a variety of claims and evidence asserted since its creation.

That being said, original American food would be a lot of venison, and just about anything else that walks or crawls and bares fur.

Corn or maize, wild nuts and berries, various fish from our lakes and streams, stewed pumpkins, or anything you could forage enough of the make a stew out of it. :)

Deer are in Japan, in fact there is a prefecture known specifically for the metric assload of deer frollicking around there and outnumbering humans 3 to 1. People actually get gangmobbed by deer for bread and biscuits so have to carry their bread home in locking metal tins.

There are asian chilis, like the Thai and Chinese breeds of Chili for example. Bok Choi is an example of Asian greens. Cabbage is a European green. Doves were brought to the Americas from Europe as a food source and messenger bird.
