I love Chinese food.. just wondering if its the same in china compared to the U.S? I keep hearing these rumors that in china dogs and cats are there delicacy.
no no no no!!
maybe in a Chinese family restaurant, like if a person from China were to come to America and open a restaurant and make the foods they grew up with, but those restaurants are hard to find, and in some places don't exist
I lived in China last summer, the foods I ate with my family at home....I have never seen, tasted, or heard of in America. It's sooooooo good. Ever since I've returned I haven't stepped foot in any of the "Chinese" restaurants I used to love. Now I only cook the foods I tried there at home and I buy Chinese snack foods that I ate there and liked...
BTW rice is not as big in Chinese cuisine as we thought. Rice in Chinese is "mifan" and it's not a main part of the food at all, I remember if there were rice it was in a tiny bowl as a side. Noodles are much more prevalent.
about the dogs and cats thing...uh no. I think that's only a small group of nutjobs in the Tibet region of China...99.999% of Chinese people do not consider cats and dogs to be food. Actually, once my Chinese host told me that he would never eat a scorpion, and the majority of people he sees eating them are the tourists. I think he's right. I've never seen any of the wild foods that Chinese people allegedly eat in any restaurants. The only place I saw bugs and scorpions on sticks were in the tourist-heavy areas and the only ones in line to try them were...美国人
As to your rice comment. It depends on which part of China. The food varies from North to South, East to West.
Tibetans don't eat cat or dogs.
Its the chinaman that eats them by torturing before slaughtering them. Chinaman puts boiling water on tied dogs mouth. Chinaman also eats monkey. Only thing that chinaman don't eat is human $hi*
Although you can find Chinese restaurants that make authentic Chinese food, mainly in Chinese communities that are patronized by Chinese, real Chinese food is not served in those Chinese restaurants that are patronized by Americans.
Although you may find Chinese restaurants that serve dog, which is true in all Asian cultures it is not that common and is not true in America.
Contrary to rumors you would never be served dog without specifically ordering it, it is not a part of any other menu item.
Depends on where in the USA. Many offer up Chinese dishes that have been altered for American taste. Some of the dishes were also invented in USA and does not exist in China.
As to dogs and cats, the majority do not eat them and you will have difficulty in finding those dishes.
in the very capital city of baychink they got cat streets and dog streets to serve the needs of cat lovers and dog lovers of other kind.
Either you are blind or your eyes are too small to see the truth.
totally not the same and you can't find fortune cookies in any restaurant in China
