Because it's not "English" food, so it makes more sense to refer to it by its original name.
I mean, you could call a croissant "that rolled up crescent pastry" or carbonara "that pasta that has eggs and bacon and other stuff mixed in" but that just seems a little silly and, well...disrespectful, I guess? Yay for multicultural cuisine!
Slighty more on topic, I hate seafood. Always have...not because of my love for fish, mind you, it's just always grossed me out. I'm not much of a meat eater to begin with, but that's mostly my pickyness talking.
