I miss old school Chinese restaurants.

I miss old school Chinese restaurants, the kind that served only Chinese food not Pan Asian and didn’t have a sushi bar. It all started to go downhill around here in the early eighties when the cuisines of Hunan & Szechwan started to replace Cantonese food. Then came these new restaurants that try to please everyone. I had lunch today @ a well-respected one in my area. There were only two conventional Chinese restaurant dishes, General Tso’s & Sesame Chicken. The balance of the menu consisted of "pick a style" preparation and main ingredient; Sambal this, Ginger Wok that and they don’t serve noodles with the soup! I'm not a fan are you?
