05:40 pm - A question for the Food Court gourmets
So, is it just me, or is the "Mandarin Chicken" from Panda Express the same thing as the "Bourbon Chicken" from, uh, the places that offer bourbon chicken?

Your pal,

Oh, the "Mandarin Chicken" is definitely not anything closely resembling Mandarin. It did, however, taste almost exactly like the Bourbon Chicken, which leads me to believe there's a food court conspiracy afoot.

In the food court, all choices are guilty.

I tend to fear anything from Panda Express. Never had Bourbon Chicken before.

Oh man, I was going to say the same thing. I have to have that again sometime. I would almost drive 50 miles to the MU at Iowa State just to have some, but I don't want to have to pay to park there, too.

Iowa State? Where is that? My sister goes to the one in Iowa City (Coral Ridge).

Ames... I'd say about 2 hours west of Iowa City.

We used to live in Mt. Pleasant, which is about an hour south of IC... used to go to Coral Ridge all the time. Great way to blow a day!

THe places that offer Bourbon chicken seem to be predominantly Cajun, but staffed by Koreans. I'm sure there's a reason why Cajun fast-food food-court places are always staffed by Koreans, but damned if I can tell what it is.

Anyways, yeah, I can well believe it, although in my experience the Bourbon chicken is somehwat drier.
