I was excited. I love trying new things. Especially 'real' things. I went to a giant Asian supermarket in Charlotte NC, which was attached to what appeared to be a thriving mall of Korean, Chineese, Vietnamese and Thai cafes and diners. I'd never tried Chineese food before so I gave it a shot. This had to be the worst stock I've ever attempted to eat. Everything smelled bad. Undercooked stale Ramen, and soggy bland dumplings. I've heard authentic Chineese food was bland, but this caught me off guard. Oh well. Try anything once. It just tasted dirty. Has anyone else here tried a Chineese dish? Are their soups an acquired taste?
