I’ve been eating Chinese all my life. Back home, there were 3 places. Though, to be sincere, back then we didn’t know Chang is not a Chinese last name but Japanese. But they had a Chinese restaurant.
I came to the US, and still loved the Chinese food, but what I started to notice was that once the restaurant began to be popular, they started to fall apart in quality. And excuse my sincerity, but the cashiers or owners, not a single smile on their face. That has really gotten me to the point that not only I go all prejudiced knowing the quality is not that good, but no customer service, not a “how are you”, but that wrinkled face. As if they hated me for being no Chinese or that’s the way they have been accustomed to treat others.
Still, bring me Chow Mein, I don’t care if you are mad at me or at the world.
