    What's the difference between Canadian and American Chinese food?

    I've only tried it twice in America. Once was Panda Express which I found super bland and the second was PF Changs which was good but didn't remind me of any Chinese food.

    You went to national fast food chains, not real Chinese restaurants.

    What makes a restaurant a real Chinese restaurant? Just that it's not a chain? We have pretty good chains up here. Cattle Cafe is a chain that serves real Chinese food and soooo goood.

    Chains generally started with one location, and were “regular” restaurants until someone fell in love with them and helped them grow.

    Starbucks was a funky little coffee shop in Seattle, they made money and grew.

    McDonald’s was a local hamburger joint - if you go now, the Hamburger is the same recipe as the original stores I think they suck, but people like those useless little burgers for some reason.

    Some chains are just fabricated out of nowhere, but the biggest places got that big by making it big making products that were popular

    Omg don't say McDonalds, now I want some but I'm trying to be healthy this week.

    Another chian with hot Chinese food that I really love is actually T&T, I always wondered if they have that in America.

    T&T has excellent Chinese food, no idea if they’re international or not. Used to go to the one downtown for lunch a lot when I worked in downtown Van

    I have to try these china chains up in Canada. America doesn’t have any big chains for Chinese food to my knowledge. PF Chang’s, Panda Express are basically Chinese franchises that take the authentication out of it. Benihana’s is one that’s actually really good pretty cool hibachi exp.

    I feel like America has more Asians than Canada doesn’t that mean we win?

    What they serve in Chinese restaurants has very little to do with real Chinese recipes.
    One of my uncles, when he was single, used to a Chinese restaurant near his house several times a week. Every time he tried something else from the menu. When he had worked his way through the entire menu, he said to the server, “I would like to try real Chinese food. What you eat yourself when you’re at home.”
    So the server disappeared into the kitchen, a few seconds later two faces appeared to have a look at him, and disappeared again.
    My uncle still doesn’t know what exactly they gave him that day, but he said it was the best meal he ever had there, and they refused to let him pay.
