Project: 10 Year
The first time I ever had American-Chinese food was at my parent in laws’ house. I was very excited to see the rice containers which is the trademark of American Chinese food that I saw in a lot of my favorite American shows.
When I started living with my sister in New Jersey, it became our go-to food when we didn’t want to cook or didn’t know what to eat. In the U.S., Korean food is not on the delivery list that I know of, and the closest food we could have was Chinese. I’ve never thought I’d crave for it but sometimes I do very strongly. When I think back, it was kind of my comfort food in the U.S and probably the reason for my craving.
I wonder if the Chinese food from China is similar to American Chinese food. Korean food in the states, it certainly a bit westernized here and there, mostly a little sweeter and less spicy, but overall it’s the same. One day I’d like to go to China and have some delicious food!
God… I want some Mongolian beef and Lo mein!
