Beef Star Ali Wong Says She Hates Eating Asian Food With Non-Asian People

The Beef actress doesn’t like eating Asian food with Non-Asian people.

In her recent appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the 40-year-old stand-up comedian vented about her beef with having Asian food with Non-Asian people.

“You are 100% talking about me,” Clarkson told her while laughing and then asked, “Do they Americanize it?”

“No, it’s just when I go — when I was living in New York, a bunch of stand-up comics would be like, ‘Well, take me to dim sum. I want to go to dim sum,'” Wong said.

“Then we’d go to dim sum, and they’d be like, ‘What is that?’ ‘Ew, what is that?’ ‘What is that?'” she added. “And they’re basically asking, ‘Why is that not a sandwich?’ It’s like, ‘You asked me to take you here!’ Also, with dim sum, it’s all pork and shrimp. Just eat it!”

Listening to this, the 40-year-old Because Of You singer said she doesn’t do that.

“Oh, I don’t do that. I’m not that person. I will generally try anything,” she told Ali.

Clarkson then told the Always Be My Maybe star that she thought her biggest beef would be with people who claim to love Asian cuisine but only eat the most basic in fact, Americanized version of it.

“They’re like, ‘I love Indian food,’ and it’s like chicken tikka masala,” she joked.

Wong replied, “As long as you’ll try. But it’s mostly just all the questions, you know? It’s more when people are squeamish.”

“I don’t like when people food shame either,” Kelly told Ali. “Why did you just ‘yuck’ my food? Now I’ve gotta eat it, and you just verbally barfed on it!”

Wrapping up their food rant, Clarkson told her viewers, “And there you go! That was so helpful. America, you’re welcome.”

In the comment section on YouTube, many people agreed with Wong and said it’s so irritating when people yuck other people’s food.

“Thanks to Ali for being so real about the rudeness. Applaud Kelly for being gracious and coming up with “yucking yum”. I’m gonna use that from now on Lol,” one commented.

“I can soooo relate to Ali with dim sum and anything authentically Chinese food. Oh the questions and the squeamish reactions. I’m like “yes, I get that too!!” a second wrote.

“It’s so true it’s exhausting. If it’s not boba or aesthetic enough for y’all’s socials, it’s tiring dealing with unmindful behavior,” a third noted.

    1. I lived in Japan for over 3 years. I took cooking lessons. There is nothing worse than being The Ugly American. I immersed myself in their culture.
