New York City Chinese food is a genre unto itself. But how do some of the city’s most popular, Chinese-inspired dishes taste to China’s biggest hip-hop group? Straight out of Chengdu, Sichuan, 88rising’s Higher Brothers are here to help Sean Evans rate the merits and faults of items like mapo tofu chili cheese fries and General Tso’s chicken and waffles. Will these untraditional Chinese meals remind MaSiWei, DZknow, Melo, and Psy.P of the cooking back home, or feel as disappointingly inauthentic as a “Gucci Gang” remix? Find out the answers to these important questions—and more!—on an all new episode of Sean in the Wild.
