My basic rule for Chinese food: Open mouth, insert food. Never ask what you're eating. If it tastes good, eat more.

Dim Sum is Fark for eyegasm. someone should write down recipes, put them in a book or something. when i was a little girl recipes didn't include such nonsense as "use two 10 1/2oz cans of pumpkin pie filling". you picked a pumpkin out back and cooked it down first.

I generally only get to have it once a year, but I like to go to San Gabriel and have Hong Kong style dim sum. You order off a menu, so you know what you're getting, and when you're getting it, and you don't have to worry about the next cart having something much better (or worse!).

Still, that's a great article subby. It's the rare Fark link that's worth a bookmark.

Oh this is a bookmark. I am just now starting to get into the various chinese foods out there. I can't handle spicy stuff anymore (sad) and seafood generally doesn't go over well, but pork and chicken dishes are something to try! Sadly, the only Chinese restaurants around here are not exactly exotic fare, but I am working on teaching my bf about the dishes.

/dumplings, yea please

The one time I tried dim sum in SF chinatown was the last.  Let's take carcass, organs and body parts Westerners would throw away, fry them, and sell them.  Brilliant!

China was so vast that each region was isolated enough to have their dialects diverge and change to become intelligible to each other.
So they set up an uniform writing system that all bureaucrats can use and communicate with.
However, over time the writing system to became so archaic only scholars knew how to read it.
in 1920 they redid the writing system to match the vernacular again - what you spoke became what you write again - this was for Mandarin.

There are two types of romanization: Wade Giles vs Pin Yin (Wade-Giles were used by US soldiers in WWII and Pin Yin was adopted in the 50's by China)
Wade Giles : Pin Yin
Chi : Qi
Chang : Zhang

The romanization of other Chinese dialects become different because they're spoken differently.

Thanks for your responses, Farkers. I feel so loved :3

Linguistics is incredibly interesting to me, but also so dense that I can't get involved more than tangentially.

Next question: chicken feet has bone. Do you eat the bone?

Always too crowded around here. Fun going with a group when I had Chinese co-workers, though. They knew what to order, and we definately did not have chicken feet!
