Interesting little article about the "world famous" General Tso's Chicken. To me, it's just another instance of something becoming popular in one Chinese restaurant and then EVERY other Chinese restaurant around it copying its style in hope of cashing in on the craze! It's also another instance of a food in China whose name has absolutely nothing to do with what it actually is!
If I just tell you that "GouRou" means dog meat, you can pretty much figure out where the rest of this post is going...
Today, after 19 months in China, I had the first and only bite of dog meat of my short life. I think for me to write anything further about this experience is not really necessary. It's not that it was disgusting, but I do have to live with myself, knowing I ate someone's pet.
I did however get some kudos as being officially "Chinese" by doing this, but I can't convince myself it's worth it. AllI know is that my Chinese boy scout, dog-eating badge better be in the mail to me right now though!
And before anyone asks me, I don't know what kind of dog it...*gulp*...was...
Hey baozi-lady, don't tell me how how "La de" spicy your baozi are because they're not. Hey you, the guy behind the baozi-lady, don't start telling her I don't speak Chinese and that I don't understand how you're warning me they're spicy because they aren't.
Any by the way, that spiciness you are referring to is called vinegar and your baozi suck.
