Cannot seem to find Egg Foo Yung here in Cebu. It's a staple of any Chinese restaurant in US. Can anyone help?

Try the Majestic, top floor of SM City.

Also, it's pretty easy to make at home...scramble up your eggs and add whatever ingredients you want. Pour it into a pan/wok with preheated oil, flip it once and voila! Get some brown gravy mix at the grocery if you like for topping.

The problem is there aren't many Chinese-Americans here in Cebu.

 

I went to an authentic Chinese restaurant in Panglao. Was shocked they didn't have orange chicken.

 

Then it dawned on me, the only make that shit for us. General Tso hated chicken!

We really miss the takeout "New York" style Chinese food...but you're right. Next time you go in one see what the workers are eating. It's not what they feed us!

I have been missing US Chinese also. I just can’t find the kind of pork fried rice here, that they make in the US. If anyone know of a place, I would be greatful.

Most definitely

Had to escort some Chinese customers while in Switzerland on business

Luckily found a Chinese place that would cook whatever they wanted to eat  - they wanted to eat there every meal - small town Busville.

Tried what they ordered - 100% veggies - not bad

I had some "American Chinese" with meat - several tried it - next morning a couple complained of "bad meat" :scratch_head:.

I was looking for Chinese vegetarian fried rice: gave up. Got a tip to try a Little Thai Restaurant on Ramos 1/2 block south of Diplomat Hotel - same side of street. They should have or could prepare for you.

Not sure if they have Egg Foo Yung..  but suggest you try out Taitong Steamers on AS Fortuna.

https://en.yelp.com.ph/biz/taitong-steamer-foods-mandaue-city

The place is run by Kimberly Tan, a Singapore or Malaysia Chinese lady, and I think she has a partner.  They also own a business making some of the best dim sum products in the city, which they sell to a number of hotels.

Very small place..  only a handful of tables.

The yang chow fried rice is a favorite of mine.

My MIL makes it

The key to great fried rice . . . . . . you have to use day old rice, otherwise it all clumps together. Keep on the refrigerator for 2 or 3 days, then break apart by hand.

She adds mixed veges (corn, peas, carrots) from SM, scallions, garlic, onion, pork (ground mostly but sometimes leftover belly) and egg. She also uses an extreme amount of cayenne pepper making it almost unedible to anyone other than me.

I live my MIL. She is up daily at 3am cooking. My fried rice is usually 3rd on the list and delivered typically around 430am to 530am, twice a week.

I make it here on Sunday mornings for breakfast.  Bacon fried rice is a family favorite now.

If I don't have left over rice from the day before (and never older) then I put the rice cooker on early so that rice is ready an hour before I need it for breakfast.. then let it breath to evaporate much of the moisture.  Don't have a problem breaking it up.  I don't like it "clumpy" either.

Aside from the bacon (available at Prince in Tuburan) chopped small, I add a mix of green onions, garlic, a single hot green pepper, 3 or 4 eggs, some turmeric powder (product of Tuburan), black pepper and soy sauce (to taste).  Wouldn't mind adding mixed veg (available at Prince in Tuburan), but one son (Gabe) doesn't like too much veg..

The most common fried rice I've had in North America is yang chow fried rice..  Try it at the Taitong Steamers place I mention in a different post on this thread.

I've never saw or had that in Chinese restro's in the US.  Just saying.  No idea about where to find that in Cebu.
