    take an American chinese menu and remove 95% of the items and you've got it.

    Some amazing (dumplings), some not so amazing (thousand year egg, birds nest soup).

    Did you know many Chinese restaurants have a separate menu for their Chinese customers with "real" Chinese dishes?

    My feeling is that I like hot dogs, and if I eat what's in a hot dog without any problem then I should really be able to eat pretty much anything else.

    But yes I also like the "ignorance is bliss" strategy for foreign foods.

    Typical Asian cuisine consists mostly of vegetables, rice etc with very small (if any) amounts of meat. Where as the typical American PuPu platter is 90% meat.

    This is about 20 yeas old so i don't know if it still applies. I used to live down the road from a biology professor. Anyways he took a trip to China this being in the mid eighties. When he came back the local paper did an interview with him about the trip.One of the questions was "What was real Chinese food like". He said its NOTHING like you find in the U.S. he went on to say were he was it was mostly deep fryed pork and vegitables. It was fried in lard, and nothing we would like to eat. He also said the Chines technology at the time was dated,dated back to the '40's a far as lab equipment went goes.

    The guy at work I sit next to is from China and said there is also not any of the fried stuff. He gets stuff from somewhere in Chinatown (off the seperate menu ;)) God it smells aweful.

    It might be Intestine Soup. I actually saw that on a menu from a place in Chinatown once. I miss working by there. We had an office on Chauncey Street. Every day for lunch. And on my breaks id get that great pastry and a cup of coffee.
    those were the days.....

    This disparity may come from the area of China each person comes from or visits. Different food in different areas of the country.
