I haven't had the chance to eat any sort of Chinese food in a long time. Other than the occasional homemade stir fry, it has been a while since I've experience some Hong Kong style Chinese food or the "Westernized" kind, such as "sweet and sour pork," one of my personal favorites. Hmm...maybe I should get my grandma over here to make me some good ol' home cookin!
The Chinese food in Korea resembles some of the fare I experienced in Beijing. I haven't had much experience eating at Chinese restaurants here as it is can be pricey. One day we are going to experience Jackie's Kitchen, the restaurant chain by Jackie Chan. They are littered all over Seoul. The Carrefour food court had a Chinese dish that I enjoyed. This dish is similar to what we ordered at work recently.
For 6000w (~$6USD), Devante and I shared this massive plate. For all those "ginger pork" fans out there, that is NOT ginger pork. It's in a sweet and sour style sauce. Next to that, we have some noodles (there was a side of black bean-like sauce to go with them), and some "flied lice" with bits of egg and carrot, along with a steamed bun.
We can't forget the side dishes: kimchi, pickled radish & raw onions, a huge bowl of sauce for our noodles, spicy vegetable soup, and some sort of soya sauce flavored dip.
After stuffing our faces full right before work, this was the aftermath:
Time to clean up this mess. How? Grab everything in sight and launch it into the supplied plastic bag. The delivery guy will return to pick up the dishes and garbage. Boy, that was easy. Next up, a power nap in an unused classroom to digest all this food. Get someone to vouch for you and you'll be on your merry little way, muhaha!
Edit: I just found an amusing article by the CBC from Michael Kwan that Chinese fast food is not healthy. Umm...as if other fast food chains are good for you!
