"I made this recipe as the directions said to, I think it has a strange flavor. My fiancee took one bite and fed the rest to our dog. I think it would taste fine to somebody who likes a high acidity flavor but for un-health nuts like us, this was a really long way from traditional chinese take-out recipes."
