Having got back from China recently, and tried hard to try out local restaurants while there, I think I need some advice....
Irrespective of how I order (english menu, point at pictures, point at food), hubby and I singularly failed to obtain any MEAT.
We had bones. We had skin. We had mountains of fat. We had assorted gristle and other nasty pieces of ex-animal. But very little MEAT.
How the heck can we get meat? Mainly chicken for me - hubby likes pork and beef ... is it that small local restaurants just don't get the best bits of the animal? they go off to fancy restaurants? or what?
Are there any specific dishes that require nice, clean chunks of bone-free and skin-free meat that we can order and know more or less what we will be getting?
All thoughts appreciated!
