Have you ever been to a Chinese take out or a Chinese restaurant in your country ?

When I first stepped into Canada many years ago, I found all kinds of funny looking Chinese food menu in those Chinese take out places and Chinese restaurant as well. For example, We never have anything called egg rolls(we only have spring rolls and the egg rolls we have has no meat in there and it was sweet and just for dessert only) , garlic spare ribs, Chop Soy or stuffs like that in our real Chinese food history. That was a very strange experience for me when I first found this thing out. after awhile, I realized that those oversea Chinese restaurant or take out places made up something just for the local people to eat it because those things can make good business for them. Anyway, I prefer the Chinese food in Hong Kong and I think they are actually taste better than those from mainland China after I have tried many of them before. That's how I feel anyway. How about you ? Share with us ?

It is good to know that. We don't have much like this in Hong Kong and the government is trying to make some of this food van business in this year now. Looking forward to something new in town. I think whatever food it maybe for each country. I think it is good to have some creativity at all time. Otherwise, the customers may get bore after eating too much with the same things.

I have never been to China, so it is difficult to compare. What I know is that our "Chinese" restaurants are mainly Vietnamese, and that they serve half of the dishes with nuoc-mam or hot sauce. However I have heard by people having visited Vietnam that their cook is most of the time authentic.

It is good to know that you enjoy Chinese food in Manila. I have been to Manila many years ago but just for a few days and I also enjoy the food in there. However, I found the the price tag was so scary for me. For example, over 700 dollars for a Kentucky meal. Wow ! Even I knew that it was just the Filipino money and not HKD anyway. The number looks very expensive for me in the first sight . I think today will be much higher, isn't it ,
