Abstract:

"Most Asian restaurants are really two restaurants, one where outsiders eat, and one where insiders dine. So how can you become an insider and take full advantage of Asian cuisines? ... dining expert Steven A. Shaw proves that you don't have to be Asian to enjoy a VIP experience--you just have to eat like you are. ... Asian Dining Rules takes you on a tour of Asian restaurants in North America, explaining the cultural and historical background of each cuisine ... --and offering an in-depth survey of these often daunting foodways. Here are suggestions for getting the most out of a restaurant visit, including where to eat, how to interact with the staff, be treated like a regular, learn to eat outside the box, and order special off-menu dishes no matter your level of comfort or knowledge."--Back cover.
