A great taste of Nanjing China is coming to America which is Nanjing soup dumplings. They are so good and tasty. It is always difficult to get real authentic foreign food in the US for several reasons. One reason in this article is that the temperature cannot be the same in China as they would service it because it is too hot for Americans and some knucklehead would sue if it is too hot. These dumplings are great when serviced hot as in China and it knows how to eat them, it is a procedure rather than shoveling down your throat. The other main reason they would not taste exactly the same is the pork inside them, which in China is all fresh meat and all parts are used. But in America it is going to be more meat and NOT all the flavorful parts.
Freshness is very important in China. This is true in most restaurants in China, for example, they usually purchase items to be consumed daily and when it is gone it is gone and this has happened to me many times when we want an additional dish of something and it is all gone for the day. For these reasons the food eaten in China is so different than in the US. When in China try the local food, NOT KFC, McDonalds, and Pizza Hut!
