MSG, Aspartame, and peanuts are the leading causes of psychosomatic health problems today.

First person to mention dogs or otherwise normal animal meat will be deemed an official asshat.

Jesus people, Kung Pao and General Tso's Chicken? That shiat ain't chinese food, that's American food chopped up into little pieces. Ick.

Btw, MSG is in nearly all of the processed food we eat. I'm eating a box of Cheez-its right now and the box displays the MSG right in the ingredients.

So either the reaction is the fact that the restaraunts use too much of it, or it's psychosomatic since that's somehting that Chinese restaraunts have come to be associated with.

I am still waiting for someone to introduce Hunan and Szechuan cooking to New Hampshire :( Chinese food here sucks.

I'm here to represent that Bloomington, IN has some fine Chinese (and Thai, and Viet, and Japanese, and Korean) restaurants.

For the simple, yet delicious Amero-Chinese, I prefer The Peach Garden. Love love love their lo mein. It's the best I've ever enjoyed.

We've got a Szechuan place in town (Mark Pi's) that's decent, then some clich buffets that I avoid. Siam House is a Thai place to die for (spicy).

Ok, no one cares. I'll stop.

I don't get this. The chinese were building railroads in this country in the 1800s and it took new york until 1936 to get decent chinese food?!?! What was that kung foo dude doing all that time?
