Why is Asian food so yummy??

Among various cuisines around the world, Asian food is one of the tastiest. And rightly so. This is because Western cuisines tend to pair ingredients which share most of the same flavour compounds. Dishes from Asia, however, do the contrary. They avoid ingredients that contain the same flavour compounds. This means that the more flavours two ingredients share, the lesser the chances of them being paired together in Asian food.
