It's good, but I like Thai better. We usually have Chinese at the local buffet, and I am sure it is not very authentic.

Depends on what region , and how authentic it is. Nothing better then a Szechuan Hot Pot, or pretty much ANYTHING Hunan...can you tell I like spicy?

I like it without MSG. But I too prefer Thai to Chinese Food.

There is a great Chinese restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale, Christina Wan's that we always go to....We usually order hot & sour soup, tofu in a lemon grass sauce, spicy garlic green beans & Kung Pao Chicken.

My father loves cooking Chinese food. My favorites that he makes.... potstickers & lemon chicken.

yea, MSG stinks. I can always tell when they use it, even if they deny it, cause it never fails to make me feel sick...

China has many different kinds of food. There are eight main cuisines in China. Each one has its own characteristic.

Perhaps Xiaoshan can provide us an example by recipe of something more authentic than what is offered at the local take-out joint?
And don't worry about any exotic spices or ingredients, I can always pop on down to Chinatown and pick any up if needed. Will have to get my wok out and ready ;)
But I would be very interested in trying something more authentic.
