Customer Question

do chinese restaurants use cat and dog instead of chicken and beef?

While many cultures where protein sources are limited will use meats from a wide variety of animals leading up to such sources being used here in the US, the Chinese restaurants are all subject to inspections and controls just as other food serving locations are. Thus they are using only meats deemed by the USDA as acceptable for human consumption.
Once upon a time there may have been situations where restaurants obtained their protein sources from 'the wild' but its highly unlikely today unless the meat is labeled cat or dog.
In China dogs are raised as meat animals along with other species which may provide further fuel for the rumors/jokes made here.
Hope this helps you!
