4/2/2020Interacial couples, what shocked you the most about your SO's culture? : AskReddit18/36ordered a few really authentic dishes just to screw with me. But I ended up impressingeveryone because I didn’t bat an eye.He told me later that was the night he decided he was gonna marry me because I wholeheartedly jumped into his culture and tried everything. I’m to a point where there aredishes I know I don’t like but if something new is in the table I always try it.permalinkembedsavereportreply[–]octoriceball1451 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 islol. I am like 90% sure this is a psychological move, like putting it in your head theconfidence that it'll taste good and you go in expecting it. If she explains what it is, youmight not come to that conclusion as easily.What's your favorite dish??permalinkembedsaveparentreportreply[–]Qwsdxcbjking120 points 15 hours ago I was a waiter in a Chinese restaurant for awhile, I was the only white employee andthe only one that didn't speak Cantonese, I was also one of only three employeesout of the 15 or so that spoke English. One of my favourite co-workers was calledPaul and the only English he spoke was "orange juice" and "it good" and Paul wouldbring in authentic food he cooked at home for me to try. He hand it to me in thekitchen 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 thesesmall white bun like things that were sweet and had like a really sweet jam typething in the middle and were served hot. I can't find out what they are anywhereand it makes me very sad.permalinkembedsaveparentreportreply[–]octoriceball62 points 15 hours ago Hmm I wonder if the buns actually had red bean paste or custard paste? Neverheard of jam type filling buns (for chinese buns). I love the custard ones!! IfPaul was feeding you home cooked stuff it means he appreciated you andwanted you to know, prob bc he doesn't speak english very well :).permalinkembedsaveparentreportreply[–]Qwsdxcbjking77 points 15 hours ago It wasn't very much like jam, I just don't know how to describe it with myheritage being completely English and Irish lol. It was a bit like custard Iguess but it was sweeter than the normal custard I had tried and more of anorange 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 immediatelystopped what I was doing to get him a refill, he also at the end of every shiftforced me onto a table and fed me a proper full Chinese meal even if overthe past 4 hours he had been cramming 6 delicious buns into my mouth.
