I know some comes from US suppliers like Sysco, US Foods, etc. Does any of it come from overseas? Anyone in the know on this?

Did it ever occur that's why I asked where most comes from? Is it US suppliers? If so, where do they get it?

I don't know, but like anything else, get to know your local place. See if they keep the kitchen door open in summer allowing fly's in. See how dirty the kitchen looks, don't be afraid to try opening the kitchen door, just stick your head in.

We all have our own horror stories but I worked next door to a place that one summer day they were dropping off cases of chicken parts out of the back of an SUV, the melt was so bad that the box gave way and all the parts fell in the street, they didn't miss a beat, scooped them up and right into the kitchen they went. This was a dirty grimy city street.

It can come from as many different places as there are restaurants. There is no way to tell. There is no rule to tell Chinese restaurant owners where they are required to purchase their food.

In the mid 80’s I had to do a job in the kitchen of a restaurant on Worth Av in Palm Beach. Filthy

The local place I get my Japanese from is all open. You can see right into the kitchen. That's how most or all of the little Chinese/Japanese places are around here. I've seen them buy stuff at food lion or whatever grocery store is in their plaza. Dunno where they get the meat from.

Most of the food is regular U.S. food just prepared differently. It's almost institutionalized from place to place--like Mexican food is. We rarely find one Chinese restaurant much different from the other in the center of the U.S.

When we lived outside of Asheville. We had a local Chinese restaurant ( I don't eat the stuff ) .

Anyway the food / restaurant inspector that grades them found cats frozen in their freezer.

Closed them down for a couple months as punishment. Still open to this day as far I know.

Just asked my wife, The name was / is Number One China .

To edit again, yep it's still there. YUM .

There is literally no way to answer this question.

Do you think there is some Chinese restaurant master mind that overseas the international supply chain for Chinese restaurants all over the world?

If you're concerned about your local restaurant, pick up the phone. And if you're really concerned, pick up a cook book.

I made no mention of being concerned.
A cookbook isn’t going to give me a source.
If there is no way to answer the question, why don’t you just STFU?

Crazzy Spicy Thai food is my favorite. That said, I order without meat

I can't think of any Chinese meal that has seafood in it.
