You should go. While not terribly authentic, the orange chicken is so good and in demand that the running joke is that it is laced with opium.We've got one of those in Joplin, never been. As I said, I don't eat often at Chinese restaurants. If we are going for Asian food we tend to go for Japanese.
Can Confirm. Went to America, had some and seriously considered the options to haul some of it home...this is also true of Starbucks chocolate chip cookies.You should go. While not terribly authentic, the orange chicken is so good and in demand that the running joke is that it is laced with opium.
As it should be. Chow mein literally translates as "stir-fried noodles". The dish is supposed to be almost entirely comprised of noodles.That said, most US Chinese restaurants that I’ve seen offer a ‘chow mein’ containing noodles. (Often there is more noodles than anything else, but that’s another separate issue.)
It was a YouTube video of an American who lives in China taking his Chinese girlfriend to a Chinese restaurant on a visit home to the States to show her America's idea of what Chinese food is. One of the dishes she is given is called chow mein but is just a plate of stir-fried vegetables with a side of rice. She can't believe it. I'll try to embed the video here-Please feel free to beat whoever told you that we generally don’t use noodles in chow mein.
we have it here. it too is delicious.It may well be regional. It's not very good either, but the people around here can't seem to get enough.
