What’s your favorite ?

Mine is Mongolian beef. Prefer when they do it a bit spicier. I usually ask for a small container of additional spicy sauce.

Mongolian beef is great. I’m also partial to orange chicken and any kind of spicy shrimp. I think it’s usually called Kung Pao shrimp?

Anyway, I doubt I will ever visit China due to many reasons but I am curious to try the food there.

My wife spent a year in China for school, she told me the best food is whatever the rural mothers are putting on the table, none of which resembles "Chinese food" as we know it. As far as Western Chinese goes though, orange chicken and ginger beef all day.

Also check out Anthony Bourdain's Layover series generally, and in this case, Taipei in particular. From my personal experience, I can recommend Singapore, which has its own food as well as food from all over Asia, in probably the cleanest city between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn.

As for the original question...Szechuan tangerine beef, various dim sum goodies, and this restaurant, now fabulously refitted: https://www.jadedynasty.ca/

Strange, this post made me realize while I like Chinese food and have yet to taste any I disliked I can't say I have a favorite type...

Peking duck with rice pancakes, spring onion, cucumber and hoisin sauce. That is tasty!


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

You are just so fancy now are you? wink


I've only had duck once in my life so far and I absolutely loved it!

It is simply how every Chinese place serves it smile

Duck in general is one of my favourite meats!

General Tso's chicken.
I remember the Chinese restaurant in Japan had food that was nothing like Chinese food here in the US. Of course, neither was the Mexican food joint. The Italian food was still Italian food, I guess Italian is just universal.

General Tso’s Chicken is my second choice.

I actually like going to the Chinese Buffet and grazing.

That’s because Italian food is the standard by which all other cuisines in the world are judged. wink

General tao's my favorite, but panned gyozas are a treat too, and I love Ha Kao.

Now, I don't know if singapore counts, but their black pepper crab is pretty good, if a bit too spicy.
