You Can Finally Get Americanized Chinese Food in China

Shanghai's Fortune Cookie restaurant serves up authentic, inauthentic Americanized Chinese food.

Spoiler alert: People in China don't eat anything that resembles what the west knows to be "Chinese" food, even though General Tso was actually a real person. You could walk for hours, with nary a piece of crab rangoon in sight. However, thanks to the invasion of American pop culture, there is certainly a market for it. Now, thanks to a duo of entrepreneurs, people in search of endless grease can get their fix.

Introducing Fortune Cookie, an Americanized Chinese restaurant right in the heart of Shanghai. They serve all of your favorites, including the aforementioned general's favorite chicken. You can also get orange chicken, sweet-and-sour pork, fried dumplings and just about anything that can be ordered via paper menu in the west. They also give fortune cookies with every order, another American invention.

The eatery's owners say, when it started, the clientele was comprised of primarily expats. Now, however, it has become a popular destination for young people.
