Travel the World Through Food (9): Chinese Kung Pao Chicken
Picture a Chinese stir-fried dish with juicy cubes of chicken, spicy Sichuan peppercorns, toasted peanuts (or cashew nuts), dried chili, and a delicious, mouth-numbing sauce.
This is one of the most famous Chinese dishes, Kung Pao Chicken (also transcribed as Gong Bao or Kung Po). It's believed to be named after a Sichuanese governor in late Qing dynasty, Ding Baozhen, who had his chef cook up this savory dish with chicken, peanuts, and spicy peppers.
If you're a fan of spicy and bold flavors, you should definitely give Canteen Asia's Kung Pao Chicken a try.
