4/2/2020 Interacial couples, what shocked you the most about your SO's culture? : AskReddit 18/36 ordered a few really authentic dishes just to screw with me. But I ended up impressing everyone because I didn’t bat an eye. He told me later that was the night he decided he was gonna marry me because I whole heartedly jumped into his culture and tried everything. I’m to a point where there are dishes I know I don’t like but if something new is in the table I always try it. permalink embed save report reply [–] octoriceball 1451 points 21 hours ago “it’s good, you’ll like it” basically what my (Cantonese) mom says when my (white) husband asks what a dish is lol. I am like 90% sure this is a psychological move, like putting it in your head the confidence that it'll taste good and you go in expecting it. If she explains what it is, you might not come to that conclusion as easily. What's your favorite dish?? permalink embed save parent report reply [–] Qwsdxcbjking 120 points 15 hours ago I was a waiter in a Chinese restaurant for awhile, I was the only white employee and the only one that didn't speak Cantonese, I was also one of only three employees out of the 15 or so that spoke English. One of my favourite co-workers was called Paul and the only English he spoke was "orange juice" and "it good" and Paul would bring in authentic food he cooked at home for me to try. He hand it to me in the kitchen and say "it good" with a thumbs up and then laugh and walk off every time. Never new what I was eating but it was always amazing, my favourite was these small white bun like things that were sweet and had like a really sweet jam type thing in the middle and were served hot. I can't find out what they are anywhere and it makes me very sad. permalink embed save parent report reply [–] octoriceball 62 points 15 hours ago Hmm I wonder if the buns actually had red bean paste or custard paste? Never heard of jam type filling buns (for chinese buns). I love the custard ones!! If Paul was feeding you home cooked stuff it means he appreciated you and wanted you to know, prob bc he doesn't speak english very well :). permalink embed save parent report reply [–] Qwsdxcbjking 77 points 15 hours ago It wasn't very much like jam, I just don't know how to describe it with my heritage being completely English and Irish lol. It was a bit like custard I guess but it was sweeter than the normal custard I had tried and more of an orange hue than the typical whitish yellow custard here. I fucken loved Paul, he only drank orange juice so whenever I saw his glass empty I immediately stopped what I was doing to get him a refill, he also at the end of every shift forced me onto a table and fed me a proper full Chinese meal even if over the past 4 hours he had been cramming 6 delicious buns into my mouth.
