Oh boy, where do I start...Tofu, eggs in tea, dim sum, zhongzi, dumplings, Sliced Fat-lean Pork With Preserved Salted Vegetable, Shredded Pork With Seaweed, beef flat noodles (Hong Kong style), pork chop rice (Taiwan Style), roast duck, bbq pork, Spicy Sichuan Style Beancurd , cold noodles, congee... I can go on and on. I love Chinese food but I have not found anything really good in the D.C. area. The only thing is, I am not a big fan of seafood.
My family does not speak english, so I am fluent in Chinese. I can read at about a 4th grade level in traditional Chinese.
Good conversation, learning Chinese, teaching Chinese, playing Mahjong (although I really don't know how to play very well-good for socializing), meeting new people...
I'm not sure. I haven't been to any meetups yet.
I was born and raised in Dallas, TX. I grew up speaking Chinese b/c my family does not speak English. I also took Chinese from a private tutor for a few years to learn how to read. I really enjoy the language and appreciate it for its complexity.
I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese, although, not native. I would like to volunteer some of my time to help those that want to learn Mandarin.
