Synonyms of "Authentic" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between authentic and hard - core ?
A: He’s really hardcore about Japanese food. He only eats at restaurants that serve authentic sushi.

Hardcore is similar to “dedicated.” Maybe a little like 拘り。I think authentic is more like 本物.
Q: What is the difference between authentic and factual ?
A: "Authentic" means "real," "true," and "genuine".
"Factual" means something that is true because it is based on evidence and facts.
The meanings are similar, but "authentic" is a more common term (used to describe anything that is real or true) while "factual" is something you'd use to describe an article or a book which has cited many sources or is based on research.

In the text that you provided, perhaps "factual" would be more appropriate?
Q: What is the difference between authentic and exotic ?
A: "Authentic" means "real", "not fake", "not an imitation".

Example: "If you want authentic pasta, you should go to Italy."

"Exotic" means "rare", "from far away", "mysterious".

Example: "Many Americans view Asia as an exotic land of adventure."

"She has a foreign, exotic look"

Q: What is the difference between authentic and genuine ?
A: There is very little difference, I think. Maybe genuine is a more "personal" word - you'd use it slightly more in situations that involve deceit or betrayal.

Similarly, if you are describing a person, you would use the latter more often if you are friendly with them and trying to compliment them. Here, of course, it means the person really means what they say and do.

Otherwise, when describing objects, I consider them interchangeable.

(I'm sorry that this is a bit of a non-reply. I suspect most feel similarly to me, as it's been twelve days.)

The answer here is quite good too, where he talks about genuine french cuisine. It's actually similar to what I started to write first, before changing my mind (i'm reluctant to put the words into boxes, as they're so similar). http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=2016651
