Jamie 26 November 2012 I was agog at this awesome issue (ordered from Amazon.com to my London flat). Loved your article enlightening us about those segregated menus in London’s Chinatown (and those elsewhere, too). I’m Chinese but assumed the Chinese-language section was a smug hoarding of the best stuff for our own kind. Really frustrating and shocking to read that it’s only to protect the proporietors from accusations of inferior meat and “improper” cooking (e.g. rose-pink chicken at the bone; fatty pork). There is probably much less of that going on now, not least because of your stern, well-educated whack up the Western world’s backside with a pair of chopsticks!
