San Francisco Chinese Restaurant Temporarily Closes Because White Gentrifiers are Annoying and Entitled

A series of customer complaints angered the chef-owner of the small Chinese restaurant so much that he chose to shut the doors, albeit, temporarily, SF Eater reports.

“We are closed because of you (customers),” one sign read.

“So…yes we use MSG, we don’t believe in organic food, and we don’t give a shit about gluten free,” a sign directly below the first proclaims.

The chef tells KGO-TV that he made the signs because he was tired of catering too hard to satisfy patrons.

To illustrate his frustration, he explained one of the incidents that led to the closure:

“The second guy came up to me and said, ‘The rule is, if we don’t like it we don’t have to pay.’ And as he walked out he started cursing at me and that’s when I went ‘poof’,” the chef says.

An employee with the restaurant told the SF Eater that another incident occurred just prior. In that case, the party refused to pay for their meals after saying the food was “too spicy.”

(To quickly address the stigmatization of MSG- it is racist bullshit)

The whites refused to pay for food bc it was too spicy……….

this looks like the buffet of food from Spirited Away, where I don’t know what ANY of it is, but it looks AMAZING

Food porn.

about 99% sure that this is from the movie Eat Drink Man Woman and it pisses me off that people have no idea what it is, where it’s from, and just immediately equate it with an anime thing.

Because oh look it’s actually traditional CHINESE cooking. 

Look.

This was Ang Lee’s first real big hit—and it’s an amazing movie and these shots were so hard to film that they had to literally hire FUCKING STUNT CHEFS TO DO THE ACTION SHOTS OK. (warning: he kills a fish and a chicken in these shots).

The first shot is making dumplings in a quick and amazing way which takes YEARS of practice to do.

The next couple of shots are of steamed white chicken which is one of those staple, simple foods in Chinese cuisine that is really REALLY hard to perfect. Like it’s one of those things that sounds simple but is rarely ever perfect. 

The next is smoked pork belly and bok choy.

I could go on and on and on but like I’m just really pissed off that people are reblogging this like “OMFG REAL LIFE SPIRITED AWAY.”

Fuck you, it’s Ang Lee’s amazing fucking movie, Eat Drink Man Woman, which is all about sisters and daughters and food and family and basically no, it’s not fucking anime, it’s fucking Chinese culture in a nutshell.

From Naise (which is selling prints of this poster!):

Here is a compilation of the different kinds of mooncakes available out there, some may look similar but have different textures for their crust due to different ingredients and methods etc. Others have different flavours. These are only a fraction of what is available out there.
Similar to kueh, you might find variations of the same style of mooncakes in both their place of origin and beyond as well.

Do note that the image doesn’t just include mooncakes from different parts of China - it also includes some from Japan, Vietnam and the Philippines.
