I'm crap (and lazy) at cooking so I don't know how to make Chinese dishes apart from a basic stir fry. Embarrassing I know!
There now seems to be a Chinese take away in every Irish village, several in an average sized town. We Irish seem to love our "Chinese" food. Indian seems to be so, so much better. Good quality meat, good curries and sauces and friendly service.
Apparently back in the 1970s Chinese eateries were a real novelty. Having a Chinese must have seemed so exciting and exotic back then!
