The news is stuffed like a tight wonton in regard to chinese politics and business affairs. The U.S. owes China over a trillion dollars. We've outsourced 90% of our production to their cheap and loose manufacturing practices, evoking horrible images of children (and adults) working 12 hour days with bloody nubs, forced to sleep in the factory in which they work, and the only respite is to jump to their death.
Now national unemployment is over 9% ...duh.
But that is neither here nor there when it comes to Chinese food in Portland. First of all it's hard to find a Chinese restaurant that isn't either a hole on the wall grease pit or a cookie cutter, overpriced, mediocre chain. Picture that thick gloppy sauce on everything and it'll make sense why we've all migrated to Thai food.
The other day Jax and I used a Groupon to Dragonwell.
The best Chinese food I've had in years. On top of absolutely excellent food, the atmosphere, service, and overall presentation was perfect. We are excited to return soon and enjoy Chinese food in Portland for the second time ever!
