I agree. My home range just does not do justice to the temperatures that commercial ones put out.

Preserved vegetable is another little know ingredient in Chinese and Thai food.

Although Golden Temple is a close second ...


Personally, I think it's so hard to find decent Chinese food because it's been dumbed-down for American tastes, ala PF Changs. Also, most Americans have really no idea what good Chinese food is supposed to taste like. I know I didn't until I ate some here, and in San Francisco and New York.

My problem is even worth that yours. Iíve started to keep kosher few years ago, all the kosher places have no clue what Chinese food supposed to be like. Even the good places are horrible. I was forced to cook some of the stuff at home. The easiest things are fried rice, sweet and sour chicken. I also make a wonton soup, but it is far from real thing, no pork you know, makes a difference.

Come and visit Boston some time Charlie. There is a decent kosher Chinese place in Brookline, MA. When my DW and I were taking her conversion class, our Rabbi brought us there for dinner. I did not even miss the pork fried rice :)

Yeah, Shalom Hunan on Harvard Street. I've been there a few times and it's pretty decent.

Actually it is a different one. I forget the name. It was across the street from Kolbos I think. My wife will remember the name. I will have to ask her when she gets home.

What is Kolbos? I'd like to know of another one. I am not kosher, but I do like kosher food.

Sorry, Kolbos is a Judaica store. They have some beautiful artwork there.
There is a kosher butcher (I think) that is right across the street from the restaurant too.

I looked up the store and know exactly where it is, as I used to live across the street and down the block.

I know the restaurant, too!
