  1. Mike – you are funny! Your turn of phrase and delivery remind me of Drew Magary. I would love to see you do a video of authentic Chinese food that can be found on a menu in America!

  2. Admittedly, I eat like half of these and think they're delicious, but then I also love all sorts of food of various levels of authenticity. Shabu shabu is amazing, but so is a well made Mongolian beef. End of the day, eat the foods you like having in your mouth and let other people worry about being judgy. 😉 So go ahead, Mike, indulge in those awful-for-you-but-so-tasty crab rangoons.

  3. Many people around the world are lactose intolerant because their bodies haven't built the enzymes needed to digest it. Since Americans consume milk on a regular basis that's why many of us are not lactose intolerant. But drinking more milk you build those enzymes in your gut. (Yes, yes, I know. You may be an American and are lactose intolerant. But that could be an allergy problem.) Anyways, that may explain why many Chinese are lactose intolerant. Just a fun fact. =-)

  4. Back in the day when the Chinese moved into New York City, the Italians had all the produce stands.
    The Italians did not understand why the Chinese people would not buy broccoli, and they force them to buy it. They also suggested to cook it with beef, garlic and onions. I wish I could tell you the Asian author who I heard this from. She wrote a book about Chinese cooking here in America and was featured on Terry gross's Fresh Air Show on NPR.

  5. When I first moved to Taiwan, one of the first things I learned was that the restaurants and night markets smelled nothing like the "Chinese" restaurants I'd been to in the States! (When I first caught a whiff of stinky tofu, I started checking the soles of my shoes to see what I'd stepped in.)

    OTOH, the "American-style" restaurants were usually none-too authentic. For example, there was a "Pizza California" right across the street from my hostel. Gotta be authentic with that name, right? They managed to dredge up an English menu, where I saw things like "Mashed potato and corn (with mayonnaise!)" Finally ordered a seafood pizza, it seemed the closest approximation to pizza in the whole place. Expected the squid, nbd, I like squid. But it was totally sauceless–where's the "spicy tomato sauce" touted on the menu? When I asked about it, they brought me a bottle of ketchup. Whee.

    Now that I'm back in the States, not only am I jonesing for stinky tofu, pidan doufu, gua bao and the like, I also miss the Taiwan-style Western food. Pizza just plain doesn't taste right without corn…

  6. Most of us Whities will go for the stuff that is yummy. My comfort food is "hot and sour" soup. That's my first sign of hope for the restaurant. I go mostly just to see Chinese family yak, schlurp noodles at a table of 15 around a hot pot. It is a thing of great theater. By the way, whose going to stop those laughable Chinese New Year dinners for Whities.

  7. Good video, but I disagree with you on 1 issue, BROCCOLI is yummy and healthy~ Do nott diss this super healthy delicious veg. Weather Asian broccoli or western its all good. 🙂
