Thanks to Yee Yuen, we know how Jonas Salk fueled his brain cells while working out a cure for Polio. The secret formula, you will find out, was "wonton soup, egg roll, rice and chicken chow mein made with homegrown bean sprouts" at the Bamboo Garden in Pittsburgh. (Well, it was 1955, after all. No General Tso's for the good Doctor then.)
According to this article, Yo! China, a 5-outlet chain of fast food restaurants in India is planning expansion to the 100-store level in India. Panda Express is cited as a model. Meanwhile, another newspaper takes a dim view of the quality of Chinese food in India.
Gary Soup is a blogger, tweeter and sometimes poster to foodie web sites, usually blathering about Chinese food. He is a retired transport planner with an abiding interest in all aspects of Asian and other ethnic foods and their place in the world. He has twice been married to Shanghainese women who happened to be good cooks and consequently is well-grounded in Shanghainese "jia chang" cuisine. He is based in San Francisco, but spends as much time as he can in Shanghai and New York and can sometimes be seen prowling the streets of Montreal. He is the author of two articles on food in the guidebook "Urbanatomy: Shanghai" and has been a guest blogger for the Asian Art Museum on the food of Shanghai. He currently maintains two Blogger blogs, and posts a lot to flickr. Some earlier online efforts of Mr. Soup drift about the World Wide Web as cyberspace junk.
