No, this is not like saying Hindus and Buddhists must eat pork in Chinese restaurants. It's saying that Buddhists and Hindus visiting China should tolerate the Chinese dietary habits even as they choose to eat vegetarian.

You have some pretty abnormal ideas.

You didn’t get my point.

That actually happened to me when I was living in multicultural California. Whenever I take my Indian or Arab friends to a Chinese restaurant, I had to ask THEM if they’re alright with dishes with beef or pork. Otherwise, it would turn into an awkward situation because they couldn’t eat ANY of the dishes containing beef or pork. And Chinese cuisine uses meat such as beef or pork in a LOT of dishes, not as the entree but as an ingredient.

So what you’re suggesting is that since they are guests of mine in a Chinese restaurant, it’s their responsibility to learn, accept and adopt the culinary culture of Chinese people instead of me as the host to learn, accept and adapt to their culinary culture by offering them dishes without any meat.

You must have had a hugely traumatizing experience in California courtesy of these ungrateful immigrant hordes who insisted on their own ethnic, religious or national dietary traditions. If I were you, I would take the Imam and the Buddhist priest to court and demand that they restore your previously pristine karma.

I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

And an even better example: do you think Hindus should learn how to eat hamburgers just because they live in the USA? Would you consider their culinary culture to be “undeveloped” until and unless they adopt the world renowned US cuisine from McDonalds? Since the USA is a “developed” country, should everyone learn how to cook hamburgers so they can be called “developed”?

Oh dear, oh dear, you are still suffering from your life-changing experiences in California! Or were you simply injected an anti-Indian bug in your system by the Chinese rulers before you left for the USA? You Chinese do have heavy prejudices against your neighbours to the south!

If I had been you over in California in those days I would have gone to Indian restaurants on a daily basis to acquaint myself with the rich Indian cuisine. There are Indians who eat meat, lots of them in fact. You wouldn't have needed to get to know McDonald's.

And I always thought US America's signature meal was a turkey with mashed potatoes...

Are you that ignorant of the culinary culture of Hindus? I didn’t say “Indians”; that’s your way of grasping at straws.
