Top 10 (20?) American-Chinese dishes

KilgoreTrout | Jul 11, 2011 04:26 PM

Long story why I need this list. Basic reason people from different parts of the US complaining about the differences in regional American Chinese food. I hope to reconcile the various answers hounds post and eliminate regional specialties. Please note where you live or grew up.
In my mind they are:

Peking ravioli (pot sticker, dumpling etc...)
Egg or spring roll
Hot and sour
General Tso's,
Mongolian ---,
kung pao ----,
beef and broccoli
sweet and sour ---
cashew chix or shrimp
lo mein

15 to 20 years ago I would have included egg foo young, lobster sauce and moo goo gai pan. I write this as a Southern New Englander with frequent NYC and Boston influences.
