    Great pointers, now when I go to Chinatown I won't look like the typical clueless white guy. I like learning about other cultures.

    I have one place that is good, That's run by people who are Chinese, But it's a buffet, So no doubt Americanized. There is one in my town that's as close to real as you can get, But really, My town doesn't have much in the way of traditional. We serve more Mexican traditional than anything. Still, I like westernized Chinese food, Just as much as traditional.

    Its all about mainstream and marketing, when I go to an "authentic" asian restaurant my family doesnt enjoy it as much because its unfamiliar I love "authentic" and mainstream western style as well, depends on my mood. I would never hang up or run because if I want that style I'm going to chow down! Meep!

    Why can't Americans call non-white cuisine developed in America, American food? Filipino food has a lot of Chinese-derived food like siopao, mami, siomai, pancit, lumpia, congee, hopia, but Filipinos still call it Filipino food, and yes we know these are of Chinese origin. Even nian gao has a Tagalog term - tikoy.

    I get it. Authentic. But everything that isn’t is fake? I would think it denies the history that Chinese Americans had in this country. It’s not traditional chinese and fusion american style chinese. I agree with him but i only comment because it plays to stereotypes.

    Years ago, before I retired, I visited Taiwan on business 4 times for a few weeks each time. I lost weight on each trip because I never found much local food that I liked. I did, however, learn to love baked garlic cloves.

    Some of these American "Chinese" dishes actually sound quite nice. Then again that may just be because I've never had the chance to try them. I'm not going to claim British Chinese restaurants are on average any more authentic, since I wouldn't know, but they don't serve these particular dishes.

    If there are 5 Chinese people in Missouri and all 5 are in that restaurant then that restaurant is not an authentic Chinese restaurant. The cook would not be Chinese. My guess is they are at Panda Express eating real Chinese food.

    Tip here: If it's run by Chinese owners but is full of Americanized Chinese food, ask for the "secret menu." I live in a mostly-white town in Virginia and a lot of Chinese chefs are simply sick of having to explain traditional Chinese food to Americans, so they just serve what Americans expect to see. But they often have specialty menus written in Chinese that they offer if you ask for it specifically :) Also, why so many dislikes on the video? It's true af

    Don’t worry about it. Non-Chinese can’t handle real authentic Chinese food. They are an acquired taste even for Chinese people who might deviate from different regional Chinese foods. The safer bet is Japanese food.

    "My parents would never let me eat off our buffet because they said everything off the buffet was white people food" - that's interesting you should bring that up because whenever i go to my local Chinese buffet they have Chinese waitresses but whenever one of the waitresses' kids is there the kid always eats McDonalds or something else that really isn't any of the buffet food.

    There are places that are both - authentic and Americanized. The place where I usually get Chinese take out from is Americanized since of course, since it is takeout, but it also has a separate Chinese only menu and half of the times that I go there I always see Asians eating authentic looking food in special Chinese bowls, food that you most likely won't find on the English menu.

    as a resident of Missouri: we have a lot of immigrants, a lot of them chinese, if your in kansas city (the vast majority of kc is ironically in Missouri) theres lots of them, same in st louis and even higginsville (a pretty small town) had a few chinese families there and they had ran an american style chinese takeout/buffet place there (it was almost authentic for awhile there, till 2005 and then they got really american in their cooking)

    It's not really fake chinese food, it's american chinese food. They have indian chinese food too which has stuff like manchurian gobi, chilli paneer, lollipop chicken, manchow soup etc.... Obviously traditional chinese food is the classic.
    It's like this with MANY cultures. People in India don't eat ANY dish called curry. But as an indian man myself I love me some curry chicken, even though I know it's not traditional indian food.

    OMG, I live in a small supposedly progressive city in NC. Every time I frequent Asian restaurants here I always hear other diners asking for dishes that are not "spicy". It's like they are terrified of being able to TASTE their food. They should eat at a nursing home. Shame they are in their boxes, because it takes away from the rest of us.

    The type of dinnerware a restaurant uses has nothing to do with whether the food is authentic or not. The most traditional food could be served with fork and knife and the least authentic with only chop sticks. Just matters how good the manager is at making a business for the market they serve.

    when i go into a chinese restaurant [or any restaurant i'm unfamiliar with] i'll ask the server what THEY really like. i'll let them know i'm very open-minded if they seem reluctant to offer more authentic dishes. in the s.f. bay area, there are a lot of different chinese restaurants. many many of them serve, what we call 'american chinese' along with more traditional fare. they want to appeal to a wide variety......really the hardest thing for me is figuring out what dishes that particular place does best. it's very common to have 100 dishes on a menu. usually only 20% are really good.
