I love chicken sweet and sour Hong Kong style, fried rice and a side portion of mixed veg. This thread is making me hungry! Haven't had a Chinese carryout for 3 years (there aren't any around here, that's why)
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.
Won ton soup Bird nest soup Peking duck Foi gnook (Chinese roasted pork) Steamed pickerel with sweet pickles Stuffed Chinese mushrooms Dim sum (oh, had to throw that in!!) Shrimp and tomatoes and what's a meal without something sweet? That would be egg tarts!
Oh, missing home sooo much now...maybe I'll make some won tons tomorrow...
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 we all are living very busy lives, no longer do we plan as many meals as we used to. After a long week, my wife and have deemed Friday our "take out" night as far as dinners go. We have a few favorites, but our favorite, is a few taco trucks here in town.
What were your favorite meals as a child? Mine were fried chicken and spaghetti. Yours?What were your top three favorite meals that your mom cooked when you were a child? Mine were fried chicken, spaghetti, and veal parmigian .. the last of which I would never eat today. What were yours?
