I used to love his reviews, and even follow his suggestions religiously for awhile. But his most recent review on the Shanghai Tea House really disappioted me. Just 1 or 2 visit onto the DC section of the board would lead him to a number of real authentic Chinese places in the area. Ans I refused to believe that he actually call the place authentic when he just retuen from China.
I'm not saying the tea house is bad, but please don't try to fool your readers by title the piece "the Real Deal" and use "genuine Chinese food" as opening line. Whenever those terms are used, "General Tsao's chicken" should not show up in there as well.
Tom, if you are reading this. I still do like you and would continue to read you. But please, do more research next time.
