Prawns with Walnuts that are pecans

MobyRichard | Dec 26, 2006 07:18 PM

More than 75% the time I'm eating at a Chinese restaurant and Prawns with Walnuts are ordered, what arrives at the table is prawns with pecans. Can anybody explain to me why the walnuts on the menu transmogrify to pecans? And if it's a matter of cost or availability, why isn't the dish just Prawns and Pecans?
