The Fung Brothers: Americanized Chinese Food with Jeremy Lin

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.

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.
