Q: Is it weird that I miss Chinese food now that I'm in back in the states? ;/

When I was there, I was sick of it. Now I'm craving it. Boo.

You might crave 'spike' in Chinese food. There was post few days ago about 'Chinese Restaurants are adding opium to food', just to make customers keep returning to the joint.

Here it is:

When you eat something all the time, it gets boring. Now that you can't eat it, you get hungry for it. Also, you might like all the MSG they put in the food. Try making some Chinese food at home.

It's not weird at all chinese food back home makes your belly full faster but in reality you are not really full they actually put artificial fatteners to make you think you are. Chinese food in China is way better! 

TedDBayer:

by back home you mean northern china?

Poor you, Happy Camper.  You must live in a one-horse town in the middle of North Dakota with no Chinese resto if you miss Chinese "food".  Chinese food in America, from coast to coast, north to south is far tastier, healthier, more nutritious than Chinese food in China.  You scoff?  Okay.  I'll tell you why Chinese food is better in America.

One, restaurant sanitation controls, inspections, rules & regs in the U.S. are second to none in the world.  Your kitchen stinks, your restaurant sinks.  You will eat well because the food is clean and will not make you sick - ehhh, most of the time.

Two, the recipes and menus are modified to suit the American palate - so you don't have to eat chicken feet or end up with a bone in your larynx.

Three, Chinese food in the U.S. costs about the same as Chinese food in China.

So, what's there to miss?  Besides fatty, oily foods, stringy beef/mutton that could be rat meat, ptomaine poisoning, salmonella, and skin, tendons & bones cloggin' up your windpipe...

Learn to cook, Happy.

Kaiwen:

Australian sanitation and inspection standards are much better than those in the USA (I am not an Australian or American citizen by the way). The USA has had some of the worst foodborne illness outbreaks in the world. The Australian authorities always carry my unfettered admiration.

A:Chinese are generally pretty tolerant friendly and accepting whatever foreigners do.  I spent 15 years in China but I wouldn't say there are that many don'ts....Don't assume that many people speak English though and learn some Chinese. Don't speak much about politics unless you want to praise Chinese system.  -- Natalie363
