I was thinking about the pâté chinois I ate at la Buche on Saturday night. It’s basically a KFC bowl, with better ingredients and no chicken. The meal was not super impressive and the name got under my skin. Pâté chinois translates to Chinese paste. hmm? Nothing seems like it comes from Chinese cuisine. Why not just call it hachis parmentier or (heaven forbid) shepherd’s pie?
Either way, Patton Oswalt said it best, this is not the way an adult eats.
