Favorite Chinese Food?

    Here in the midwest we don't really have good Chinese food, at least not outside of the major metros. When we lived in CA, we often went out for Chinese. Our favorite was Hunan Homes restaurant in Los Altos. One thing that we always noticed, no matter what we ordered, it didn't look at all like what the Chinese folks were eating. It was as if they ordered off a different menu, which I suspect they did.

    Another place I liked was Jing Jing in Palo Alto. They had a Schezuan pepper chicken dish that would just eat the skin off your tongue it was so hot. But it was additively good.

    So what's your favorite "Chinese" style foods? I'd have to say mine are spicy orange peel beef, and good chow mein.

    Go to any country in the world, apart from China of course, and you'll find a slightly different local variation on "Chinese" food, everywhere has their little differences and foibles, and dishes you'll rarely find anywhere else. My experience of Chines food in China itself, admittedly many years ago, was that it was rubbish, YMMV.
