Chinese food: love it, chew it alive

Posted By on Mon, Apr 8, 2013 at 10:04 AM

Does anyone anywhere not miss their mama's cooking? Every time I go to an ethnic restaurant with someone of the particular ethnicity, they shrug and start talking about their mama's cooking. My favorite such experience was with my friend Long, who is Vietnamese. I took him to Chateau de Saigon, and he went on and on about how much better his mother's cooking is. Meanwhile, with each taste of a different dish, he'd say, "It's not bad." He ended up cleaning every plate of its contents, saying, of course, "It's not bad" after the last bite.

Here are three videos about Chinese food.

My favorite Food Music this week is provided by Jimmy Wong. He loves Chinese food.

Maybe the most repulsive restaurant dish I've ever seen.

How much is that mating turtle in the window?
