    Brit over here with a question for the Americans watching. Do you guys have many independent Chinese restaurants in small towns? People always talk about chain restaurants in the US and on TV shows they always joke about how Indian food and Chinese food gives them a belly ache and makes them ill 😋 Over hear in the UK (specifically England) all towns have more than 1 Chinese and Indian takeaway/restaurant and more than 1 fish and chip shop too, that arent chains. Heck, even most villages (or at least a village near by) has one or all three of these takeouts that are loved by the locals and unless it's a proper dodgy establishment people never get ill (or get belly ache) after eating it. Though I've heard from friends that Indian food isn't very common in the US? We have more Indian restaurants than any other restaurant in the UK. Though I know obviously in the 40s 60s and 80s onwards the Gov wanted people from the Caribbean and South Asian countries to move to the UK for work so with that followed tons of great food. Just find differences interesting.

    Guys please be respectful. If you’re only coming onto Juliens channel to ask about Jenna, it’s rude. Come here for Julien, not his girlfriend. I get it, you miss Jenna, many do, but it’s disrespectful and insulting to Julien when you’re commenting asking “how’s Jenna?” “Hey could you get Jenna in the video?” “Where’s Jenna?”

    I'm a cook at Panda Express, part of the job is memorizing the recipe. We obviously go really big because we are a restaurant, but our recipe is: 5 quarts of vinegar 5 quarts of sugar 1.5 quarts of Basic Sauce'* 1.5 quarts of water *basic sauce is what we use for soy sauce, it's a mixture of soy sauce, corn syrup, and water. I don't know the exact measurements in it. We take this mix and portion it out into 4 or 8 quart pans for use in the kitchen. A 4 quart pan gets 7 grams of corn starch and 1 tablespoon of orange extract. The chicken is just 4lbs Tyson dark meat chunks. Heat up the wok and add 1.5 tbsp of ginger and garlic mix, 1tbsp of chili flakes for 5 seconds. Add in 1.5 tbsp of cooking wine and 2.5 cups of sauce for 4lbs of chicken. Heat the sauce until it thickens, add in the chicken and toss it until it's covered, add in 1.5 tbsp of sesame oil and toss some more

    Hi Julien! MSN Nutritionist here! Just letting you know that you may feel odd after using MSG because MSG does contain gluten derivatives and also sometimes has trace gluten within it as well - so while it itself is technically gluten free, it may still cause reactions in those with celiac disease. Hope that helps! :)
