Putting the naming controversy (Tso/Tao) aside, let's rap about some really good chicken. General Tso chicken is a North American Chinese food favorite, and has been for over half a century. The famous recipe can be broken down into components. There's the sauce: soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sugar, cornstarch, dried red chile peppers (whole), garlic, and MSG. The batter: egg, cornstarch. And there's the dish: broccoli, chicken (cubed). All this is prepared in a professional fryer or, alternatively, skillfully in a wok. The following is an unranked list of some of the best restaurants serving the General's chicken in Montreal. Please send us your suggestions for places we've missed!
