Yes, well I mean ice cream in general is I think (at least the modern form), it was invented around the time the ice cream cone was during the St Louis' World Fair. Wonder how it became associated with Asian cuisine.

danielsa1775- since your location says Brisbane... try the Fried Ice Cream at Wok On Inn on Racecourse Road in Ascot. They uesd to have the best Fried Ice Cream, especially if you get it with the Caramel Sauce!

Their food other than that wasn't up to much though.

Oh man, now you've all got me wanting Fried Ice Cream (pregnant again, I shouldn't be thinking about food haha).

I found it funny that Kiwi's don't even know what dim sims are.

Lemon chicken, and special fried rice i've never seen anywhere else quite the same as Australia.

Thanks, I live on the South Side, and really have no reason to be in Ascot, might make a good hangover cure after the races one day

Congrats on the Second Baby, we have got a 6 month old at home, lots of fun for Dad.

These days it really depends on who does the cooking. The old multi-generational local chinese take-away has often been sold to Chinese investors and they don't do the "traditional" fare as well. When I was growing up lots of family friends ran the local chinese take-away both in the city and the country and all the dishes were pretty consistent.

I forgot about the "honey" dishes. The American style is the "sesame" equivalent and all sweet n' sour batters and deep fries the "protein" and then ladels the sauce on top. Just don't skimp on the pineapple.
