Eating Chinese style

Posted by Victoria on May 04, 2009 at 18:49

Is anyone familiar with the phrase "eating Chinese style"? I learned it from my mother, who was born and raised in California. It was not meant to be derogatory. It simply meant eating dessert first, before the meal. Does anyone know the origin of this phrase? I'd appreciate knowing since all of my family is deceased.
