Chinese Food

I went over to the little shopping mall area that's a couple blocks away from work today for lunch. For some reason, I had a hankering for Panda Express (orange chicken=overwhelming deliciosity). Unfortunately for me, the line was longer than the formula of my desire for chicken versus time wasted could allow.

So I kept walking, and came upon another Chinese food take-out restaurant, though this one was of questionable cleanliness. However, they had 1) orange chicken, 2) sushi (a bonus), and 3) no wait time at all. In retrospect, the third item on the list should have caused more of a red flag, but I also loved the fact that I wouldn't have to wait. So, I got my sushi, orange chicken, and chow mein, and happily went back to work, albeit eight dollars or so poorer.

Now, this brings me to my question of the day. Why is it that Chinese food restaurants of questionable cleanliness always buy the worst grade of chicken possible?

As far as how bad this chicken was, let me just say that it was crunchy, and it was not fried. Now as much as I love inexplicably crunchy chicken, it is probably a fair assumption that I won't be going back to that restaurant again, or, most likely, to very many other lower grade Chinese food restaurants that I haven't been to before.

Give me the Panda Express, and get out of my way!

To those of you who are thinking, "Hey! Wasn't he on some sort of diet?", I respond "Shhh...don't tell the gf."

To the gf: "I've never seen the above drawings or the above words in the above order before. I would be surprised if this actually happened at all since I don't even speak English. ?QUE?"
