Well, if you have any suggestions. I mean, I love getting Chinese take-out, but I'm also more than abundantly aware that the stuff I like the most is not actually Chinese food. General Tso's Chicken was created specifically to cater to an American palette.

Now I have tried branching out, but it's sometimes hard to justify trying something new; especially after more than a few misses. I've tried the Moo Goo Gai Pan, not a fan. Egg Drop Soup? Made me want to vomit. Beef Lo Mein or Sweet & Sour Pork? I fucking love that shit!

I love trying new foods. It's part of the fun of eating. Of course, I've had some misses, but that's all a part of exposing yourself to new types of food and finding out what you like.

And if I ever make my way back to Kaohsiung (in Taiwan), the first place I'm hitting up is this vegetarian buffet attached to the Hanshin mall, called Shanghai Vegetarian Cuisine, where they have unlimited awesome pumpkin soup. Drooling

I've never had pumpkin soup, but I think it would taste amazing. Does it taste somewhat like butternut squash soup?

More or less, depending on what spices they throw into it.

If you ever find yourself visiting Montreal after your move to Maine, go to a restaurant called Yuan and try their pumpkin curry stew with vege seafood.

Pumpkin and butternut squash slow grown in England served with good stock or roasted is almost enough to turn me veggie but not good enough for sure, its best served with meat or eggs or cheese or seafood

Taro root. If you haven't had taro before, as a root it is indeed potatoish.

This one place in CA has taro sorbet. They have a lot of odd flavors. It is actually really good.
