what is western/islamic chinese food?

Mary | Aug 19, 1999 01:51 PM

Just what do we mean by "Islamic" or
"western Chinese" food in the USA? Does
it tend to be food from Mongolia, or further
west (Urumqi, Kashgar), or a completely
different new-world variant (or does
bad mutton=bad mutton no matter how you
slice it, so to speak?) As you can see,
I have only the most stereotyped notions
of it, and welcome enlightenment.
And where do I find it? I read with interest
J. Gold's recommendation of the place in San
Gabriel. Anything in NYC? And does some place
in the L.A. eastern sweatshop belt with "Rose"
in its name ring any bells? Thanks.
