In response to the earlier Italian thread.

CHINESE

Slimy noodles, not sure what all they put on the different types but they are greasy and slimy
CAT! Everything they call chicken does not have the texture of any chicken I ever saw.

Granted it's usually cheaper than Italian but I can't swallow it

Dumplings. Pork with ginger and that sauce. The rest is meh.

I like the bourbon chicken at the mall though.

Don't care for cookie-cutter Chinese. In most places you can't swing a dead cat without hitting 10 or 15 Chinese places serving the same Americanized stuff. Boring.
Once in a while I find a unique Chinese restaurant serving the real deal.

Rather eat Italian, Thai or Mediterranean.

Nasty, hard, thick, fried "dough" with cream cheese inside?

I've never had a good Rangoon, or one with the purported "crab" anywhere to be seen or tasted. Even in otherwise good restaurants.

Real Chinese food is phenomenal. Soup dumplings, scallion pancakes, spicy cukes could be my last meal. Americanized Chinese not so much. Szechuan is really tasty as well. You have to go authentic, or you are eating salt, brown sauce, and corn syrup. One of my favorite meals to make at home- ginger scallion noodles. This recipe comes from David Chang of Momofuku fame, but it's really a rip off of the Chinatown version. Try it and be amazed.

If you can find somewhere that has soup dumplings, I can't recommend them enough. They are different from regular dumplings in that they are basically a meatball of pork sitting in broth inside of a dumpling. You rip the top a bit, add some vinegar and chili oil or dumpling sauce, and slurp the whole thing down. Might have to hit Chinatown tonight!

Yeah, my guess is that very few people on this site, or in the US in general, have eaten real chinese food. What you get at a "Chinese restaurant " is not chinese.

I use chopsticks regularly, particularly with soups.

Are chopsticks now part of the Liberal agenda?

You ever been to Italy? It's sort of skimpy on meat. Other attributes, just fine. Expensive, and you have to order everything separately.

Good West Coast US wines beat the hell out of European wines.

I'll bet you doughnuts-to-dollars that most posters here would find the typical amount of meat on the typical Italian (in Italy) meat dish too skimpy. And I stand by my wine assessment. Yes, in Italy you can basically go into a bar and I believe their sinks are plumbed red wine on the left, white wine on the right instead of hot and cold. But it's generally not that great. You just are on vacation and relaxed and drink enough of it that it doesn't matter. Most European wine is tainted with Bretanomycis (sp?) and tastes musty. I prefer clear fruit tastes.

I ate chicken feet yesterday. Eating them is a PITA but it's okay if you flavor them well and cook them long enough.

You've gotta agree with the principle of not letting any food go to waste though, right?

I like to use the sticks to pick up what I want, put it in a Japanese spoon, and then add broth as needed.

Makes sense with long noodles. Would probably look insane with, say, chowder.


Yum.

You sound like you've never actually spent much time in Italy or traveled far and wide. There is no "typical" Italian meal, because the food varies so much by region. What IS typical, is the multi-course format. Rarely in such a meal will there be a giant meat course (or pasta, or fish, etc), because you are expected to eat many courses. There are exceptions, of course. The true Tuscan Steak is famous and gigantic.

Order like an Italian and eat like an Italian, and it will be great. Order like you're at the Olive Garden or Outback, and you will be disappointed.

Your comments on the wine just shows that you go to crappy wine bars and drink cheap crap. You can do better.

If prefer clear fruit flavors, but can't appreciate Barbareso, Brunello, or Sangiovese, because you find them "musty," I have to assume you've been drinking that cheap tap wine.
