New England Chinese Polynesian Duck Sauce and Food more of a cult following?

jetle25 | Aug 16, 2014 06:01 PM

I am doing research on New England style chinese polynesian restaurants. Seems like im finding a lot of loyal followers wanting New England style duck sauce but can't find it because most of these style of restaurants have gone the day of the dodo. I must admit I live in NYC now and could be called a foodie here but isn't chinese polynesian stuff just so deep fried and coated with dark gravy sauce and msg that a majority of people with a sense of taste and culture wouldn't bother eating it? There are no polynesian chinese food here just your typical fast food chinese joints. Usually gross and not appetizing. I keep reading about lobster sauce and amazing egg rolls that can't compare to other parts of USA. Seems gross to me. That is why I figure its more of a cult following then general acceptance for lets say generic Mexican food or Thai Food. Would people buy this duck sauce off the shelves if it was offered? Seems like a secret recipe. I'd love a list of local New England joints that still serve it to taste it if they are still around. Seems like people really miss the kitch chinese polynesian cuisine particularly from New England. I would love to hear thoughts from people that love this stuff and who hate it.
