    Looking to order from a new chinese that has opened up recently but we are unsure of what certain dishes actually are, tried wiki and google and much to my amazement I have been unable to find a definition of the different types so I open myself to your collective wisdom

    The dishes I am looking for definitions are:

    Kung Po
    Hong You
    Jiang Bao
    Yee Hong

    Any help much appreciated

    Cheers

    Kung Po is nice, fairly spicy and the chicken is usually battered from my local chinese places. Very nice. Do it. Forget about the other dishes.

    I've often done that before but it never works! It's hard to understand a lot of the people that work the Chineses round here, specially when they talk fast and blurt out everything that's in it quick smart :(

    It's bad.. Today I've had Mcdonalds breakfast, a jumbo hot dog from the chuck wagon at the track, then a big fat burger from the chuck wagon too...

    I can't have four takeaways in A DAY, can I?

    Can I?

    You're a manly man aren't you? Course you can (although you may regret it come the morning ;))

    The local Chinese we use has Chinese people cooking, but an English person on the phone.

    Unluckily, since I live near Bristol, that ends up meaning I'd prefer the Chinese person's accent....:p
