    My parents own a Chinese takeaway

    Going to Hong Kong after exams - can't wait to eat the truly authentic food!

    Has anyone else seen the Chinese movie "God Of Cookery"? (starring Stephen Chow) A version was going to be made starring Jim Carrey, but it got canned.
    can we get a discount if so, do you deliver to north london

    Well it's called Silver River, and it goes a little something like this:

    "Silver River, Silver River,
    It's so great, we do liver.
    Silver River, Silver River,
    Unfortunately we don't deliver."

    Actually, I don't like liver...

    Me....my favourite dim sum has got to be siu mai [sorry..i only know what they are in cantonese....even though i'm mandarin...]....although i do love the paper wrap prawns. Cheng fan is lovely though...haven't had it in ages!!
    I love Cheng Fun, its lovely, prawn cheng fun, but only if the prawns are very fresh.

    P.s. well done for cooking the vermicilli noodles! I'm an awful chinese food cook myself

    They really do eat dog, I've not tried it myself but my dad assures me it does taste like chicken, until somebody tells you it's dog.

    Perhaps it's not typical, people have a tendancy to feed my dad "delicacies" whenever he's on a business trip, such as dog, raw camel tongue, and most recently, live worm quiche. I'll have steak and chips thanks.

    I am glad to say that I purchased God of Cookery ($15), From Beijing With Love ($15) and Shaolin Soccer ($75) whilst in Hong Kong! Ah, life is good...
