  1. I didn’t understand exactly what you said on this blog, and the purpose of it, but it sounds like you are trying to insult Asians, particularly Chinese. Sad…

      Do not confuse comedy with opinion…
      Thanks for commenting

      • It’s still not funny to make comedy out of a culture, especially if you’re not part of the culture. The only people who should be making a joke out of Chinese culture is the Chinese themselves…they are entitled to it since it’s their own culture. But outsiders should stay out of that, especially when Western culture is so different to that of Chinese, and we virtually know nothing about their culture (Chinese); so we don’t understand it the way they do. I personally find this blog of yours to be rather a mockery and an insult than just an innocent joke/comedy made at their expense. It’s disrespectful, you know? But anyway, it was fun reading it nonetheless. I happen to have a lot of respect for their culture, so, that is why I felt indignated by what you wrote and your attitude towards them. Cheers.

        Comedy is comedy whatever you think about,
        and unlike you, I lived in China almost two years and my many friends there have always made jokes about my “culture” (especially “my food”) and I on them, and everyone was happy …
        Needless to say, the Chinese do not need any western Quixote to defend them. Moreover, the post is primarily concerned with western Chinese restaurants which are real crap in their majority. And this is not just my opinion, but of all continental Chinese who have had the misfortune to visit one of these in the West … a complete disregard to a culinary culture more than 5000 years old.
        Anyhow I have to say thank you! ’cause I think I will take you up on your sound comments.

    There was a new chinese restaurant in town and we had some food over sometimes,it was nice since everything else is fast-food, I enjoyed their noodles soup very much, but last time the soup was so salty,never had anything like it,like they have dropped the whole salt from the kitchen in the pot. We never had anything anymore from them, Ialso think they are closed now,if I am not mistaken,they did not last long.A pitty,but they didn’t know anything about bussiness I would say.

      That’s the norm…

      I spent some time in China with Chinese people, eating between 4 or 5 times a day Chinese food … till forget the taste of spaghettis Bolognese … On several occasions some have come to visit me to Europe or Africa, but I remember one occasion in particular. It was a good friend and a food lover. We were in Madrid and after two days eating Cocido Madrileño and Grilled Sirloin, he was tired with these “culinary experiments” as he put it, so I decided to take him to the best Chinese restaurant in Madrid. We ordered several dishes, some non-existent in China –as spring rolls- or westernized, and after trying several dishes, my friend asked for the owner of the restaurant. I do not understand Chinese very well, but enough to know that my friend was giving the restaurant owner hell for the poor quality of food. The owner, not to lose face, invited us for the food prepared, now, by himself. If you know real Chinese cuisine, especially home cook, you have to hate western Chinese restaurants, most of them. And no Chinese would ever disagree with this statement.

      Thanks a lot for commenting!

    That is funny!!! That is too funny!!!

  4. Indeed the Western chinese restaurants suck. I know Chinese people who avoid eating at the Chinese restaurants here in the West. The Chinese who run these restaurants here cater to the Western people. They use mostly ingredients from here and make the food more rich in taste, because that’s how the people here like it. But that’s not what real Chinese food is like. And why do you automatically say ”unlike you, I lived in China….”? How do you know if I lived there or not? And 2 years is still not enough.

    • Dugutigui says:

      I know that just because your comments, and if you did it wasn’t mixing with Chinese people. They are the first ones poking fun on western culture and being very festive when you retort them. And you are right, two years is not enough to be an expert in their culture, but enough to write the post above… which beside some stereotypes, is not on Chinese culture, but on the contrary on western Chinese restaurants or Chinese cuisine counterculture.

  5. I understand what you wanted to say about the “Foo King” restaurants… maybe many people go there because the prices are good, not thinking about an extra quality that they don’t even know…
    you have a rafined taste and am good experience behind you, so you can see many details that other fail to see…
    As you said, at the end of the day each one can do as they please … but not to their pets, no, please no……:(😦😦
    Me, I’m cuddling my two guinea pigs… and I really preffer cooking myself… that way everyone is happy… and alive…😆

    • Dugutigui says:

      Just comedy… and I’m also expecting for some advertisement from Mcdominals in this blog….🙂
      BTW Fook Hing resto exists in reality… Probably the owner did not know English well …🙂 well, yes!

      • Or knew English too well???😛
        In my country , in an advertising company,they have printed menus for a restaurant (you know, that list of dishes you can find and order there)… Not late after picking up his new menues the owner was very pleased and came back for a new order… Revising the menu they have discovered a very little error that was quite big… the product was supposed to be called “Pulpe de pui dezosate”(chicken boneless legs)… instead they have printed “Pule de pui dezosate”(chicken boneless dicks”…)
        I imagine his clients have ordered a lot of this thing….that’s why he needed more menus… “:lol:

      • Dugutigui says:

        With the Chinese you never know, they have a twisted but brilliant humor and are intimately festive … brilliant precisely because you never know who is laughing at who….🙂
        For example in one restaurant sign (in English): If you find rude the waitresses, you must see the manager…🙂🙂🙂

    Your photos are excellent and your writing is so good. Keep it up.

    • Dugutigui says:

      Is a picture worth a thousand words? A magnificent picture is never worth a thousand perfect words. The tools are too literal. And, thousand words from a lunatic or a thousand words from Wilde? Words from a writer like Wordsworth make you appreciate words are worth. But, when words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs, and, when images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
