So I, like most sophisticated Nu-males, enjoy trying various exotic regional cuisines. Obviously I know that American Chinese food isn't authentic and has basically nothing to do with actual Chinese cooking, but why is it so fucking impossible to find "real" Chinese food? I live in Manhattan. We have Ethiopian, Turkish, Yemeni, Cambodian, Mongolian, Korean, Thai, Colombian, Argentinian, Persian, Malaysian, Japanese, English, French, Hungarian, Peruvian, fucking every kind of restaurant in and around my neighborhood, but every time I ask someone about a fancy Chinese...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I can't tell you why it's so difficult or where to find a good one, but I can tell you how to spot a "fake" one.
In China they eat very few rice in restaurants. When I was there I had to ask several times until I actually got some, because I was sick of all the meat they put on the table.
Because it's fucking disgusting thats why. American style chinese food is onjectively better
these are the same people who eat dogs and pedo piss eggs, exposure to whites has done nothing but improve their cuisine
I don't get how the Chinese can eat this disgusting looking puke.
Post more vomit-inducing foreign food that not only contradicts the whole idea of 'tasty', but merely confirms how superior the West really is by comparison to these outlander Luddites.
Did a Chinese girl whose favorite food was congee "friendzone" you and as a result, you're super butthurt about small things that remind you of her?
This happened years ago with a dude that got turned down by a Vietnamese girl.
Evening all, happy pre-monday
Tonight we're fixing up some pork sirloin marinated in a homemade mustard and herb wet rub, some rice pilaf and brussel sprouts. We're looking to get our pork temperature around 155 for a good medium doneness and then just to go to town on it. Looking forward to a good Sunday night meal.
Posting live from the kitchen.
Our beverage for tonight will be some Lost Abbey Red Barn ale.
Let's get to cooking.
Our mustard is going to be comprised of 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 2 packets of mustard seed (brown and white), some garlic, radishes to give it a little pop and lemon juice to brighten.
ITT: Favorite sodas you occasionally drink.
Local import store sells it for $2 a bottle.
I buy this shit at the taqueria all the time

Food combinations that likely don't make sense and/or are probably terrible for you, but you love it anyway.
Who here /chickfilaeveryday/?
My campus has one and I for some tendies, nuggies, or a god tier chicken sandwich everyday.
What does an average grocery shopping trip look like for you /ck/?
Which takeaway fast food is your go-to when you're hungover?
Hey /ck/, Pork Shoulders are going absurdly cheap over here, and i've never cooked it before. I have access to a stove, oven, slow cooker and BBQ.
What are some good recepies to use with it?
Hey, I was just watching this video!
I was going to try this because I've been craving pulled pork like how my dad does it in the smoker, but I live in Manhattan, so no smoke for me. Foodwishes recipes nearly always come out perfectly for me, so if you try this, I'd be interested in hearing your opinion.
You might also shred it with a fork and broil it crispy with some oil to make pseudo-carnitas
Stove tops that /ck/ wish they had
What do you guys think of bell peppers?
What's an everyday dish you can add them to?
I've been wanting to sprinkle them everywhere in my diet now since ive never had a problem with them and they're really good for skin and hair

The recipes inside are really neat and full of some clever ideas.
Starbucks hired me today as a barista. What am I in for, and what's good there? Can I get free tea?
Don't be fooled by anyone telling you that making espresso drinks takes any amount of school.
Be prepared for the cancerous "triple shot extra foam soy machiatto" bullshit
You can mess up drinks slightly no one will notice cause they're drinking liquid sugar anyways.
You're going to hate the smell of pumpkin spice.
You'll have a few regulars that are nice, rest of the people are cancer
>You're going to hate the smell of pumpkin spice.
I love the smell. One of the reasons I picked starwank, it would be like working in a candle shop. Just too much exposure?
I've never really had any of their drinks and think their coffee is terrible, but 10/10 atmosphere, comfy place to study or do work.
How many fatasses do you get ordering coffee abominations? What's the most ridiculous thing someone has ordered?
What dishes or ingredients do you flat-out refuse to eat, if any?
I just can't deal with the taste and texture.
what eat now /ck/?
start cheetoast block now
soft crunch toasted outsides
sweet cheeze top
corn milk next
slight corn taste
I work pizza delivery.
I only spit in people's pizzas if they didn't tip me last time.
Also, when you do cunty things like giving me a $20 on a $19.47 order and then tell me to "keep the change", you're getting spit.
>I work pizza delivery.
The joke is on you then.
It's just spit. Unless you have some horrible disease it doesn't matter at all. People don't even notice it.
But you're still stuck in a job that is literally shorthand for "loser"
The I don't eat bugs starter pack
good luck finding bugs like that, without legs, shell and ugly parts, without intestines full of bug shit making up to 50% of their mass, and keeping a clean, appetizing white and bright orange color.
When do you eat it?
And why not more often?
How come nachos aren't as popular as they were 15 to 20 years ago?
they get soggy so you can't eat them with your hands. it's just messy and not as fun as it looks to eat.
not to say i don't eat nachos ever, but when i do, about 1/4 into finishing i start using a fork because the tortilla chips get so soggy.
So, since someone posted a picture of a mirror glaze donut in that stupid chinese food thread, my interest is piqued. What's the verdict on mirror glazed pastries? Do they taste as good as they look?
What is your worst pizza experience /ck/
>new pizza place opens up
>order a pepperoni and mushroom
>mushrooms are canned
>not even cooked in, just slathered on
>pizza is fucking cardboard
>cheese is rubbery
>tomato sauce is virtually non existent.
>whenever i think back to it my teeth and gums hurt.
>be promised pizza party as a reward for performing fellatio
>none of the pizza includes anchovies as a topping
I just defrosted 2 chicken breasts, how do I make it not taste like cardboard without using some supper sophisticated techniques/ingredients?
All you need is salt, pepper, and a good sear. You can also add whatever spices or seasonings you want. Chicken breast is a blank slate--flavor it however you like.
Don't overcook it.
Alas, that latter part might be tricky if you don't have much experience or a thermometer. chicken breast is super lean so there is very fine line between being properly cooked and overcooked-and-dry. Doubly so if it was frozen.
How do you even make chicken breast taste like cardboard? All you have to do is not overcook it and it's good. Simplest thing in the world. The oven does the fucking work for you, you just have to casually monitor it and you'll end up with something edible. It's idiot-proof food.
Take pan, some oil, slice onion longways, add in sliced chicken, carmelize onions and cook chicken through, add peppers, season to taste, serve over rice.
There you go, easy as shit solid chicken recipe and it'll taste great.
>Complained about food even if it tastes good for free food
>Almost never tip (not my job to subsidize their salary)
>if waiter didnt refill my drinks on time to my liking, throw a few coins on table as tip
>Leave bad reviews (1 star) if a single small thing upset me
>complain about food after I finished it all, again for free food.
>If u get upset, leave a huge mess in bathroom
>flick my hand around to get waiters attention
>never clean up after my kids (that's their job, wtf are they paid for?)
>never say "Please" or "Thank You"
What does /ck/ do at food establishment's which may be seen as food?
I was at a sushi bar one time and I whistled to get the server's attention. She ignored me. I looked to the cook behind the bar and asked "You heard that right?" He was like "Yeah but I'm not a dog either." TB honest family I wasn't even trying to be rude. I was a little hurt.
I've had to tip extra just to keep the waiter from throttling a whistler at my table, shit was fucking embarrassing to be around. No shit, the waiter lost it on this guy, and he was right.
How to spice up chili?
Strangest cooking experience you've had.
Mine? pic related.
I... I dont know what to make of this.
I plugged in a crock pot outside once because my roommates didnt want the house to smell like beans (i slow cook my refried beans for a day or two before refrying them)
side note - the "re" is Spanish means well, not again. So they are well fried, not fried again.
What is your diet like in an average day, and how are your poops?
There's a whole lot of conflicting advice out there. Some people just seem blessed and can eat whatever they want. I wonder how much of the high/low fibre/carb/fat is just placebo.
usually three Mc chickens or three chick fila sandwiches or some type of fried chicken. My poops come in little increments they smell like sulfur and are usually soft although I only have to wipe a few times.
