This famous spicy chicken dish originated in Sichuan and gained cult status in America. I will always remember the Seinfeld episode where George Costanza is accused of stealing while eating kung pao. His boss thinks he’s lying because he’s sweating so much but George blames it on the spiciness of the dish. ‘George likes his chicken spicy!’ One time, an order came through the restaurant, which read ‘1 kung pao – not spicy’ I laughed and thought it was a joke. I mean seriously, ‘DO YOU EVEN KUNG PAO?’ Order something else!
