There's often some (almost) English writing on there too. You should be fine, even with limited literacy.

OK, I was kidding. I'm actually fluent in Chinese. (still kidding) I'll just go in and ask for stinky tofu. Hopefully that's not being rude or anything. It worked for me in the SF area.

No problem at all. Both Taiwanese and Mainlanders agree that Taiwan is part of China. (It's called the "one china" policy). The other poster is misinformed.

If anyone is interested in the topic they can start with Wikipedia's entry on "one china policy". There are many other better sources in English and Chinese that you can find with a quick search.

Wait - how do you know if the sources are better if you can't read Chinese?

Tried CT WOK tonight. Yum

The dumplings were clearly made in house, and really good. We got some Thai Noodle dish with the big wide noodles. It was pretty "normal" (for Thai food), but very good. and We got Crispy Fried Beef which was unique, and delicious. The latter was pretty spicy, but not too much (we both like a lot of spice).

I will definitely go back there. I'd like to go back with someone who will eat "anything", there are a lot of unique things to try. For those that care, their health score was only 90.0. Doesn't bother me, but that's pretty low.

The hubs and I went out to 35 Chinese over the summer when the kids were away at their cousins. I asked for "the best duck dish" - and she recommended "Duck in garlic sauce" I'm not a big garlic fan so I asked for the "next best one" I got some kind of duck in FLAMING HOT CHILI sauce. You could see all the chopped chilli's on the plate! And the duck was just cut into chunks, bone and all. I had to pick up each smallish peice and gnaw on the meat, there was probably a teaspoon of meat total in the whole dish, not that I could really tell at that point, because my lips were on fire!!!
So it was a bust of a dish And my husband didn't get the dish he ordered either - so I guess it is hit or miss there. We will try that Morrisville location. We really miss a good sit down Chinese restaurant. There was one in Garner that we used to go to all the time, in fact, we had a tradition of driving there on Xmas Eve, and last year we trekked out there and it had changed hands and was now some type of Mediterannean restaurant! In Toms River, NJ we had lots of nice sit down restaurants.

That duck dish sounds pretty authentic to me. Maybe you just don't like Chinese food?
