After some time away, last night I was able to go to my favorite Chinese restaurant.  I really enjoy the buffet of what I call their "Americanized Chinese food."  But last night I found a new addition to the Chinese buffet: Cajun Chicken.  Really??

Of course I had been enjoying there for some time the dessert that seems to be quite popular in Mexican restaurants: flan (pronounced "flahn").  I guess these are just American multicultural variations of "Chinese" (?) food.  Whatever it is, I love it!

American Chinese food is quite different than the actual foods eaten in China.

      I saw the "Chinese" heading and had to reply since as far as I know, I might be the only guy currently writing out of the "Center kingdom". I've been living in China the last two years and have been an AOM reader on my downtime. The food is much different than westernized Chinese food. Chicken feet, Pig's feet, deep fried spiders...

     On the whole, the food is actually really good but not at all what I experienced eating in Canada, especially without the fortune cookie at the end. Usually, it is some beef, chicken or pork with rice which is also called "fan" and more veggies. The food can really change regionally as well. The first shocking thing I noticed in China was that there are many Middle Eastern/Halal restaurants from the North West. Some of the other food from "Hunan" for instance is some of the hottest food outside of Indian food that I've ever had. So it can really vary depending on which region you are in.

Not exactly what comes to mind when thinking about China. Some of the other food from I've tried from "Hunan" for is some of the hottest food outside of Indian food that I've ever eaten.
