Kudos to China Cafe on Connecticut Ave NW (near Dupont Circle) for finally adding broccoli to General Tso’s Chicken, the Friday lunch special. General Tso’s Chicken is really hard to eat all by itself, what with the dough and sauce and all, so the broccoli was a welcome additional viand.
In other news, it turns out that General Tso’s Chicken, Sesame Chicken, and Orange Chicken are all the same thing, with the exception of sesame seeds and orange sauce in the latter two. And what they call “lo mein” around these parts is what I grew up calling “pansit canton.”
And what’s up with Chinese restaurants serving cheeseburgers and sushi?
