Do people really like bitter melon?

I enjoy bitter melon stir fried with either beef or chicken cut in to bite sized pieces along with black bean and garlic sauce.
Another favorite way is to stuff bitter melon with a mixture of ground pork and steamed.

Best Cantonese style Egg Foo Young?

I was raised in Detroit,MI and grew up around my uncles Chinese Restaurant named UT Garden, and remember Egg Foo Young being a dish that was made with 3 scrambled eggs,some bean sprouts, diced green onions,sliced button mushrooms and whatever meat choice you desired(CharShiu,Shrimp,Chicken Breast) you wanted that was diced up and mixed into the egg mixture , a scoop of the mixed ingredients was gently dropped into a wok full of oil, browned on one side then turned over to cook on the other side. Always 3 patties to a order with the all purpose brown gravy covering it.
Served with steamed white rice smothered with the gravy.

Lexington KY Restaurants

I especially enjoy the Panda Garden's buffet luncheon that is served on Saturdays only, there are a lot of authentic dishes on it ,which are not served on the weekday buffet.
A favorite of the local oriental clientele, as evidenced by the large crowds that fill the dining rooms.

Detroit and Michigan traditions?

I'll have one of each heavy chili please, and a chocolate cream ale.

Do people really like bitter melon?

I like it stirfried with either beef of chicken and blackbean-garlic sauce. It definitely is something you have to acquire a taste for.

I blanch it before stir frying, seems to take some of the bitterness out.

Bestfoods Foodservice puts out a line of different soup base, sold under the name "LeGout 095" that is quite good. The Beef or Chicken comes in a 16oz jar,and is sold thru restaurant supply types of stores.
