Yahoo! Health created a list identifying “America’s Worst Chinese Meals”, written by David Zinczenko and inspired by the new book, “Eat This, Not That! 2011”. The article begins by ridiculing the behind-the-scenes work of Chinese restaurants: “What’s the last thing you’re likely to find in a Chinese restaurant in America? A trained chef. Even though there are three times more Chinese restaurants in America than there are McDonald’s, there’s very little real Chinese cooking going on. Whatever authenticity that once might have existed has long since been warped by years of exposure to American taste.” Among the fateful Chinese dishes are: P.F. Chang’s Chicken Noodle Soup; Panda Express Beijing Beef; and Applebee’s Crispy Orange Chicken Bowl, all of which are reported to contain very high amounts of sodium and calories.
