A story about this — 7 years ago
I don’t normally eat crab. I don’t eat a lot of fried food, either. It can’t possibly be good for me. Those things being said, I will eat it anyway.
I was told at some point that crab rangoon is not actually an eastern dish. That is, you can’t wander into a restaurant in China and find it on a menu (assuming you could read the menu, which I couldn’t). I’d love corroboration on this opinion, but it makes sense to me. There aren’t too many Chinese foods with cream cheese incorporated into them.
