Good Chinese food in a (still) foreign country/city is a luxury. A week in Glasgow, and I was craving Chinese food. I had to understand the Chinese scene in the city and find out if there are any good Chinese restaurants out there, and I started with a small restaurant that got pretty good reviews online. I ordered a boxed Fujian fried rice takeaway, a classic that could be found anywhere in Toronto, just to try it out. It has shrimp, fish, scallops, duck (I think?), and some other stuff with a thick sauce poured over the rice. IT WAS SO GOOD. Tears almost came to my eyes because I actually didn’t expect it to be so good, but it was. Maybe I was just extremely hungry?
