    Good job Mike, You really pissed me off this time, I've been eating at a "Chinese" Restaurant for more than half my life. These are the reasons why 1. They serve cold water 2. You said chow mein wrong which I thought for a long time was Chinese so good job

    It could be a tent with make shift table and stools. Doesn't matter I have only one criteria. The food must have "Wok Hei". Just order a stir fry veggie or broad noodles. If you can taste the seared flavor, its legit chinese food.

      Unless you have some familiarity with the language, how do you distinguish between Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, etc? I'm guessing they all look the same to westerners. And are they native Chinese with accents in English or were they born and raised here with perfect English?

    The Chinese invented forks...
    Nah mate many type of eating intensifies that looked like the modern fork too...

    Chopsticks are only useful for certain foods, like sticky rice or clumpy rice.
    Other than that it's a matter of preference, skill, and culture.

    I went to a genuine generic Chinese restaurant a few times, but the chef's dad got sick so he had to go back to China. It's really upsetting. Bad Chinese food is good as actual Chinese if cooked well and made with the right ingredients. I suspect something weird happened in the past 100 years since the first Chinese people immigrated to America to where all those methods of cooking stuff were lost.

    But since the Chinese flag IS red, wouldn't that make them more authentic?

    Ha! I can barely eat anything from our local Chinese take-away. Nearly everything contains animal products. So, I only ever have the same thing every time. If I want Chinese I have to cook my own. Lots of prep :(

    Shouldn't an authentic Chinese restaurant also have its menu items listed in Chinese characters first and English second?

      That's your own fault for being vegan. Veganism is not a thing in China. Even buddhist monks are ovo-lacto vegetarians, not full on vegan. And yes, you are correct about the Chinese characters on the menu.

    Condiment advice is a definite, but assuming the restaurants in China are authentic, ive seen the buffets, picture menus, pot sticker translations, and several dishes resembling the Americanized ones across china.
    Ive lived here for several years, been to every province, and have realized that the majority of chinese people don't actually have a good understanding of the different regional cuisines. Also it's very common here to make sweeping statements about what all chinese do based on the regional culture one knows. I don't know how many times I've heard the overarching 我们中国人。。proceeded by something which discusses the habits of people in 广东 or 湖北。
    Also, Confucius is from shandong - capital of seafood dumplings, and dating back to his time, Chinese literature explains that they would eat a fresh cheese with the texture of tofu..So I actually could see him enjoying it
