They say the Chinese food you gave America is nothing like the Chinese food they serve in China.

I've never been to China but I'm in San Francisco among Chinese people. I've been to 3 Chinese weddings, had homemade food by Chinese people, and I've seen lots of cooking shows visiting China (Martin Yan does that a lot, a local guy who likely has a website). Not the same as being there, I know. Yes, lots of different ingredients but I don't think the food is fundamentally that different. They eat noodles and Peking duck. Our Chinese restaurant owner (both she and the restaurant are that) says that sweet and sour is very popular among her Chinese patrons. Maybe the difference from a place like Panda (I'd never eat there) is that the flavors are robust and distinct. Ginger tastes like ginger, hot is truly hot, the sauces are robust and rich. But they still love their potstickers.

That calls for "Put up or shut up then" doesn't it? I know that I really would like to try some real Chinese.

Real Chinese food empowers you to do Kung Fu

The Chinese basically eat anything and everything (i.e. they are not limited by the West's very limited definition of food). There are so many of them and there is such a wide gap between rich and poor that general rules don't really work all that well.
