The waiters will do that trick with the tablecloth and hope your meal stays on the table.

North boiled dumplings are no competition for southern fried chicken.

Stupid @$$ translator.

The characters for “pulls the surface” mean “Noodles”.
Good grief.

At least they’re still exploding the food….

(BTW the exploded vegetable choice just means “Fried Vegetables with Shredded Pork Noodles.”)

@DnT 5:46 am, The character 拉 in Mandarin simply means to “pull” or “stretch”.

@DnT 5:38 am, West Lake Soup is available up here in the States, but not widely. Typically you find it in places where there are lots of Chinese immigrants, particularly if the resto specializes in Sichuan or Hunan regional cuisines.

I know that Argentian beef is supposed to be superior to the American variety, so I guess the same is true of Peru.

Former columnist Dave Barry ran an article about a cow that supposedly exploded. Almost certainly an urban legend though… 🙁

Lots of surface pulling going on in this restaurant… perhaps the Peru method isn’t the best!
