As you may know, Taiwanese American NBA basketball sensation Jeremy Lin joined the Charlotte [North Carolina] Hornets this season. If you’ve ever been to North Carolina, you know there aren’t a lot of Asians there, and even fewer Chinese restaurants.
The Fung Brothers made a special trip to Charlotte to visit Lin and to check out the Americanized Chinese food scene there. Lin mentions that his parents would be disappointed if he went for “fake Chinese food,” like that at Panda Express.
I’m not a big fan of Americanized Chinese food, especially now living in California, but I’ll have my share if I want something different or just have no other good choices.
