Chen Kinichi was my favorite. I'm sure I've mentioned something similar before but I got the impression that with his cleaver and tree stump he could circumcise a mouse or break down an elephant into retail cuts. No problem.

Great trailer. That's the àuthentic Chinese food I grew up with in new York.

If you have à 99 Ranch market neàrby, check it out.

There's a couple locations here in SLC by Chef Gao, one down on 7200 in Midvale, one on 5th East and 1st South downtown. They don't have sweet and sour anything on the menu, no mention of the general's chicken. But what I've sampled there has been some of the tastiest Chinese I've had in the valley in recent years.

There are 200 main dialects in China, and about 8,000 variations of the dialects. Each dialect regent has a different style of local cooking.

 

In Japan, there are two major dialects, Eastern and Western.
