Question by RickT: How do Chinese restaurants have 140 different menu items?
I am curious about this. How do Chinese restaurants have so many different dishes to offer? I know they have a variety of beef, chicken, shrimp etc, sauces and seasonings, and vegetables. I am just amazed by how quickly they can make up whatever you order. Do they prepare a bunch and freeze it in small batches then microwave it before serving it to you?
I just can’t imagine a chef whipping up each dish from scratch every time.
Anybody ever actually work in a Chinese restaurant?
Answer by Acreame
They have a lot of menu items because China has 1.7 billion people in their making food. Theres gonna be a huge variety of food if you have that many people.
