Watch: Bruce Lee’s Favorite Dish Is Hidden in Seattle’s Oldest Chinese Restaurant

‘Cooking in America’ heads to Tai Tung to sample beef in oyster sauce

Cooking in America is in Seattle for its brand new season, and we’re kicking things off with the iconic Tai Tung — Seattle’s oldest Chinese restaurant. It’s managed by third-generation owner Harry Chan, and like his father and brother before him, he has dedicated his life to the restaurant.

The over 80-year-old restaurant serves classic comfort-food Chinese dishes like egg foo young, chop suey, and sweet and sour pork ribs. It also had an illustrious regular — Bruce Lee, who frequented Tai Tung and always ordered the same thing: beef in oyster sauce. Host Sheldon Simeon stops by Tai Tang and has the honor of cooking one of his idol’s favorite dishes.
