I want to like this, I really do, but why does so much of this need to be about race. I have no problem discussing the origins and what the food means to that particular ethnicity, but this goes way too far. I'm white and I felt so much unneeded guilt. They completely broad brush that every white person thinks and acts the same way and does not appreciate Asian culture and thinks the food is weird. They say Americans will not eat traditional Asian food, but that doesn't make them hate a culture or ethnicity. It just makes them human and their culture is not used to that type of food.
And David Chang makes himself a complete hypocrite when he says it "pisses him off" when White people say they like Chinese Food, but have never had traditional Chinese food. Skip 5 mins and he is talking to a WHITE Chinese food expert in China. She has him try traditional Chinese food and he spits it out right in front of the chef who prepared it. WTF!?
