    MMM Pani that does sound good, but I always order the same thing, Roast Pork Egg Foo Young with House Fried Rice! If I am extra hungry i order the POO POO Platter, and have leftovers for the next day.

    This thread is making me hungry! Haven't had a Chinese carryout for 3 years (there aren't any around here, that's why)

      A Chinese-themed party for hubbers would be awesome!

      Not to change the subject, but has anyone ever tried to organize a real life event for hubbers?

    Living here - there is such a vast range and everything different, but none that really tops the bill in an obvious way.

    All the dishes you mention are pre-revolution and mostly Cantonese from the south of China so only a few of them around here.  Western Chinese cooking - I miss it in the same way as I miss roast dinner, but most of all I miss Indian food, not Indian in India, Western Indian food from the best Indian restaurants in the world in Birmingham UK.

    kung pao chicken and fried rice with shrimp or seafoods

      china manposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      We get this, but every restaraunt makes it differently around the central idea of diced chicken.

      Mu Shu Pork   we have this also - it is pronounced Mor gu zhu ro (mushroom with pork)

      Pani - your description is a little more exotic than here - but we western like to 'adjust' things more to our taste, I do.  The cooking style you describe is how almost everything gets cooked here.

    What is Mu Shu Pork? I have seen it on the menu but never asked.

    1. Ron Montgomery profile image60
      Ron Montgomeryposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Braised, shredded pork and julienne vegetables.  It's served with a crepe-like wrap to roll it up in, some places assemble them for you, and some serve them like fajitas.

    Shredded Pork in Hot & Spicy Garlic Sauce!!!

    There was a place when I lived in Dallas that their shredded pork was shredded noodle style, not chunks or sliced. They had the best I have ever eaten. Can't find any Chinese Restaurant that shreds the pork that way anymore.

    As a chef, we don't eat out much, I make a broccoli and pork dish (actually weight watchers) that my kids ask for pretty often. Hmm, maybe I should make it soon.

    Fried rice with Sesame and Mandarin chicken with grilled vegetables on the side with two or three beef egg rolls on the side. MmmMmMm. + a fortune cookie. Can't forget that.
