My short bio: I'm a rapper that's releasing Lebron Flocka James 4 tonight at 6.

My Proof: https://twitter.com/WakaFlocka/status/758004102882271232

Q:

What should I never order from you?

A:

As an environmental consultant and a GOP candidate, how do you reconcile your personal views on climate change with that of the GOP platform? Specifically that the platform rejects the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement while stating that coal is "clean" energy and that climate change is "far from a pressing issue"? Also, what do you think should become of the EPA? What "climate action" do you support?


Q:

I try and try to make Chinese food at home and it's never as good as the worst Chinese takeout. What's the secret?

Q:

Has stripping altered your attitude towards, men, love or sex?

A:

What were you thinking when the time Kate Quigley (comedian in a blue dress who acted drunk) started shouting your name and danced weirdly in front of you?

Thanks for the AMA, bro :D


Q:

I, personally hate making salads because we have no fucking shredded cheese. I mean what kind of fucking shit is that? we have to cut cheese slices, cheese slices for salads.

It actually tastes alright though lol.

A:

I support a cap and trade system to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. It is a free market way to do it. Cap and trade was invented by Republicans -- so I wish so many were not opposed to it now. Coal can be clean if the emissions are sequestered underground. I helped the EPA write the Geologic Sequestration rule that would help make coal "clean". It's the only regulation the EPA has written that didn't get them sued. That's because we worked with oil and gas, the financial industry, and environmental groups to write the Reg.


Q:

I can guarantee you the main reason is the sauce. The recipes you find online dont use the same ingredients we have in stores. The sauces in restaurants usually mix a variety of seasoning and sauces togethers to achieve the correct taste.

Also the ability to flash cook in a wok makes a big difference believe it or not.

Edit: You should try to ask your local chinese takeout that you order from and see if they will sell you some sauce. I dont see any reason for them to decline.

Q:

Yes, I've also done a lot of "growing up" in the strip club since I started dancing just after I turned 19. I'm not sure if my opinions have changed as a result of stripping or new experiences or a little bit of both. I think seeing people come into the club in a variety of relational states has allowed me to be much more open minding and less judgmental. I also learned to cut myself some slack and not take things so seriously in regards to men and sex. In regards to love, when I find that I will do my damnedest to keep that person in my life. I've learned that there's a difference between sex, connection, and love.

A:

I ain't going to jail.


Q:

How often does someone throw up from being too drunk?

A:

What would you change in the American political system, given the chance?


Q:

I've got my own wok and make my own North American Chinese dishes at home - having the ability to get that wok screaming hot and KEEP it hot while cooking is KEY. You have to have all your vege, meats, and sauces prepped and ready to add at the exact right time.

What I do is set the wok on low-medium heat while I prep. That way when I'm ready I can crank the heat and in a minute or two start adding the ingredients.

No idea how similar this is to a chinese takeout place, just what works for me.

Don't try to make a dish like this in a skillet.

Q:

if i may ask, when looking at how strip clubs are portrayed in films, being the bottom of the barrel, what made you change your views and opinions compared to what is shown on tv?

A:

What's your favorite pizza topping?


Q:

I'd say once or twice a week? Courteous customers make it into the toilets or in the grass. Otherwise it's all over the walls and shitter of the bathroom or in the parking lot for the cooks to clean up.

A:

I would make same day voter registration mandatory in all states. Only politicians think about the votes months and months in advance -- a lot of people are busy with work and think carefully about the candidates only to show up on election day and not be registered? I grew up with same day voter registration in Minnesota and it was great.


Q:

Spot on!

I would like to add, that the best way is to have the vege and meats cooked already.

First you add some oil preferably vegetable oil, add a pinch of garlic to quickly sauteed, and then add the sauce.

Now here is the tricky part, you had the corn starch to thicken the sauce, but dont add too much. Wait till you have a smooth bubbling to the sauce and that is the point when you add in all the veges and meats. If you add it too late the sauce will burn and if you add it too slow the sauce will be runny.

Q:

When I started I was waitressing to pay the bills and my restaurant was really slow that time of year, I had to fix my car and make a tuition payment money ran out very quickly. So I started to pay for those things and give myself a little financial boost. When I got more comfortable with the environment I started to realize there are a lot of reasons people dance (one of my best friends at the club I'm at now is a single mom and she is able to be with her kid all day while working 3 nights a week when he's with a babysitter and is asleep). Also theres a group of feminist strippers that are moderately prominient on social media Lux ATL and Jacq the Stripper are two of them that really inspired me. In short a lot of people are the bottom of the barrel but a lot of them strip because its the best option for them and they kick ass.

Also if you think strippers are dumb have you ever met a strip club DJ? (old joke but still makes me laugh)

A:

pineapple


Q:

Do the cooks have to clean up vomit only or do they perform other janitorial duties?

A:

Hi, I live in the VA's 8th congressional district and will be voting this year so thank you for doing this AMA.

Two big issues that I care about are the TPP and net neutrality. What are your stances on them?


Q:

What do you think about Sesame Oil?

Q:

Is there really no sex in the champagne?

And have you thought about branching off to webcaming?

A:

Tech N9ne references you in a song saying "I could pop at you proper cause I'm partners with Waka Flocka". How well do you know tech?


Q:

The cooks sweep and clean the parking lot around shift change so when they puke on the pavement that's their job, if they puke in the resturant that's ours.

A:

I support net neutrality. I support the TPP. A critical feature of many trade deals is the requirement that each country enforce it's own laws -- particularly on environment. That's good.


Q:

I think it is great! I wouldn't use it as the oil to cook with, but adding a couple drops of it will add a great smell to the dish!

Q:

Depending on the club/girl yes and no. With me never. I drew really hard lines of what I've been willing to do in the strip club and sex for money is just not one of them. Some girls are full service sex workers and they do have sex in the champagne room. For me I don't see the benefit of being a hooker in the club - once you put a dollar amount on satisfying the customer you loose the oppurtunity to get them for more money. I had a regular that spent around $75K in a month and I never slept with him - other girls did and he didn't spend any more money on them, he liked to chase me and see if the next thousand would get my panties off, it never did. So it really depends on the girl - that being said a lot of people spend a lot of money in strip clubs so if you're getting sex in champagne room that girl has probably seen a lot of milage so be careful boys and girls ;-)

As for camming - not really something I'd want to do, I like the anonymity of stripping that isn't offered when you cam or do porn. I do have friends that do it and love it but just not for me.

A:

Very very well, he's a hip hop general.


Q:

What's the secret ingredient that makes everything so damn good?

A:

Do you think there is a need for greater accountability for police violence? Do you support dash cams, body cams, independent prosecutors, or other reforms?


Q:

Thanks. I'm just curious why you wouldn't use it for cooking?

A:

Do you think there is a need for greater accountability for police violence? Do you support dash cams, body cams, independent prosecutors, or other reforms?


Q:

Is there any way to get on the Staff's good side? I feel like where I go they just want me gone.

Q:

see if the next thousand would get my panties off

I wish I was dead

A:

What is it like playing for the Seahawks?


Q:

Liquor probably

A:

Dash cams and body cams are a great idea. Transparency is a good thing -- and I know a lot of cops that appreciate that level of transparency -- to protect themselves.


Q:

The smell is too over powering for most if not all dishes. Smell adds a fair bit to the taste

A:

Dash cams and body cams are a great idea. Transparency is a good thing -- and I know a lot of cops that appreciate that level of transparency -- to protect themselves.


Q:

That's a hard one and it depends on the store. I really think the best way is to talk to them, but not about the store. They work in the store 11+ hours a day. Local news or anything interesting :)

Q:

please refer to /r/suicidewatch

A:

hahaha I'm the Richard Sherman of airports all around the country!


Q:

Is the blueberry waffle going to come back?

A:

What are your ideas for climate action, specifically? Do you support a carbon tax? Cap and trade?


Q:

Good to know. My mom always cooks with a mixture of mainly sesame oil when she makes stir fry.

A:

Q:

Is North American style Chinese cheaper and/or easier to make than something more authentic? Which do you personally prefer to eat?

A:

Q:

Are there customers who want to do drugs in the VIP room and if so, how do you handle them?

A:

Would you please buy a bird and name it Waka Flocka Flamingo?


Q:

If Waffle House realizes the stupidest thing they've ever done is get rid of them; maybe.

A:

I support a cap and trade system for reducing greenhouse gases. The Federal carbon tax proposed by the incumbent congressman ignores the good work that has already been done by states. Cap and trade systems are already working in several states and countries--in Europe and China. We can build off of those and not start from scratch. Cap and trade was a system designed by Republicans in the 70s and it worked to cleanup our air, it works for protecting wetlands, and it will work for climate change.


Q:

If you are not cooking on a wok try using vegetable oil or canola oil and then once the dish is almost done, add a dash of sesame oil.

Q:

North american Chinese is definitely easier and cheaper to prepare. Most of the prepping can be done in bulk and final product from the precook stages only takes a couple minutes.

Authentic chinese food requires more ingredients and a longer cooking process.

I prefer authenic chinese food on a daily basis but I do get cravings for the north american style.

Q:

It really depends on the club and how strict they are about drug enforcement. I've worked at a seedy place where there's been lots of deals and open cocaine usage - some guys would actually try to pay for dances with blow. In a place like that where the general rule is tip the bouncer if he sees you instead of following any law. I usually say "instead of offering me a line how about you take the line off my ass and pay $10 a line". Usually that works. The club I work at mostly now always has a plain clothes cop in the building and police officers come in multiple times a night - if that happened there I would tell the customer to put it away. Most everyone in the industry is cognizant that people will be doing some kind of substance especially during a night out and [we] really don't want to draw attention to our place of business so the most anyone will do is ask the customer not to openly use in the club.

Come in the club and try to sell to staff.....that's a different story...

A:

Where do I think I could get a flamingo from in the Atlanta area preferably?


Q:

I work at a local Italian restaurant and eat there on my off days all the time. Do you ever go to waffle house on your off days just for a meal?

A:

What cap would you support specifically? Do you have a schedule for reducing the cap over time?

Would you be willing to vote for Democrats as committee for leadership positions if they support cap and trade and their Republican opponent opposes the same and perhaps even denies the existence of climate change?

Q:

What is the money like? What do you think about while you dance? Did you take classes before starting this job?


Q:

Absolutely because my co-workers are angels that don't charge me even though they're supposed to haha.

I always leave a fat tip though obviously.

A:

If I am elected I WANT TO LEAD the committee that sets up the cap and trade systems.

Q:

This is probably because everyone copies the success of another. And as a result, everyone expect all chinese takeout to have the same dishes. Its a cycle.

Q:

The money ranges, this week I've gone home one night with $1 after I paid the club (for 7 hours of work) and another night I left with well over $2000. So it depends on the day, the girl, the city, the club etc. Most strippers (unless they have a drug problem, a shopping problem, or a pimp problem) are pretty comfortable financially.

What do I think about - if I think I can get a lot of money out of the customer I'll be paying very close attention to how he reacts to what I do and try to guess what will make him spend. If I know that the guy is only going to buy one dance or just wants me to (pardon my crudity) jack him off with my thigh I'll either be looking around for my next customer, or thinking about grocery shopping, that I need to feed the dog when I get home, that my feet hurt, anything to pass the time. Champagne rooms are the hardest to keep your mental state sane (tiny room, drunk dude making the moves, while having no way to keep track of the time other than counting songs) and I mostly try to keep track of how many songs I've been in the room (there are approximately 20 songs in one hour). The longest stint in a champagne room I've done was 5 hours and I'm pretty sure my brain was jello after that.

Not sure if you're talking about school or like dance classes. I started stripping my Junior year of college. I had no pole dance classes until after I started stripping. (also if you think my job is easy go take a pole dancing class and come back with your thoughts)

A:

Now I'm afraid to click links from any of you....


Q:

Have you ever had to call the police to your Waffle House? What happened that you needed them?

A:
  • 1) What do you think of net neutrality?
  • 2) Can I get you stance on Muslim ban from entering the United States?
  • 3) In which issue are you opposed to Donald Trump? What's Donald Trump's most ridiculous mistake?
  • 4) What do you think of guaranteed basic income to everyone?
  • 5) Do you support electoral reform such as having Runoff voting, proportional representation and overturn Citizen United? Why?

Q:

Two local stores have kids that are always playing around inside, and they are there so much I have literally watched them grow up to some extent. Did you have this same experience? If so, how would you describe being there so often?

A:

Q:

I honestly thing that is one of the most endearing things about Chinese take-out. You can go from city to city and the hole-in-the-wall takr-out joints are going to be more or less consistent in quality. You never have to be disappointed when you feel like Chinese.

Q:

I'm a girl and I've been to strip clubs with my boyfriend several times. I feel like I always get more attention than him and I have always wondered if I am just imagining this or if you guys prefer dancing for girls? How often do you see girls come in and how often have you danced for them?

A:

I was a big fan of the It G Ma remix - how did that end up getting put together?? It's the most unexpected collab I can think of but it ended up being dope


Q:

Police have been called 3 times in the time I've worked there, only once were they useful so we don't bother most of the time.

A:

3) I disagree with Trump on trade. I think we need free and fair trade. Is there room for improvement on some trade deals? Sure. But free trade allows us to compete and export to our comparative advantage and buy other goods at a lower price -- I don’t want America competing with African countries on low wage goods. Ethiopia’s costs are something like 30 percent LOWER than China’s costs … we don’t want to compete with everyone on everything. I want America to compete and export on clean energy and high-value added goods and services. Let’s innovate!


Q:

I know exaclty what you are talking about. I am one of those type of kids!

The restaurant is a love hate relationship! Its great because it keeps your family so close together, but at the same time it keeps them far apart because they are working 24/7.

however, it is a unique eperience, you learn about tons of different people and personalities. you also learn about the value of money and work ethics!

Q:

^ this is it exactly

You can go the safe route and open up a standard chinese takeout. Or you can be adventurous and open a new style of chinese that may become extremely popular.

Q:

Often female customers come in and are absolute attention sucking bitches (remember as a stripper I pay to work so when a girl comes in and starts flirting with a millionaire at the bar you'll see some girls in 10 inch heels seeing red). Or there are girls that come in and act like every stripper that approaches them is trying to steal their man. That being said when a female customer comes in and displays good behavior tipping, friendly, not jealous, and is participating in the fun-ness of the evening (also a bonus if she's wearing pants - long story but don't wear a dress and go commando at a strip club if you don't want to get kicked out) WE LOVE YOU GUYS!! It makes are day when girls come in and are cool - its also nice becuase we sometimes are judged by the "normal people" so having a girl come in and be a pleasure to be around is awesome. Also there is a strategy when approaching a couple, you always have to win the female at the table over. Its an unwritten rule. The girl that talks to your SO first generally will not get your money. Also, my guesstimate is about 40% of strippers are lesbians, sorry to ruin the fantasy boys.

A:

He hit me up and I said lets do it.


Q:

But dude-- deets! Why did you have to call the police in the first place? What went down?

A:

When you say that you don't want America competing with African countries on some goods, how would you prevent it?


Q:

How do all the Chinese takeout restaurants have the same menu? Is there some secret "American Chinese food" cookbook that everyone uses?

A:

When you say that you don't want America competing with African countries on some goods, how would you prevent it?


Q:

What happened to "fortune" cookies? These cookies nowadays say some bullshit like "the weather is nice" I haven't had a fortune in years. They're all statement cookies.

A:

When you say that you don't want America competing with African countries on some goods, how would you prevent it?


Q:

How would you respond if a peer / professor from your school came in?

What was your first night dancing like?

A:

What is your favorite breakfast cereal?


Q:

Two punk ass kids drove up next to this old man who collected cans on his bicycle and beat the shit out of him, cook and the other waitress ran out and chased them off while I dialed 911.

A:

It's not a matter of protectionism ... we should just play to our economic strengths!


Q:

This is probably because everyone copies the success of another. And as a result, everyone expect all chinese takeout to have the same dishes. Its a cycle.

A:

It's not a matter of protectionism ... we should just play to our economic strengths!


Q:

I want to know too. The worst ones are the Kung fu panda cookies. It a sad day for fortune cookies

A:

It's not a matter of protectionism ... we should just play to our economic strengths!


Q:

First question: I haven't had this exact experience yet, but generally strip clubs are anonymous zones - for you to know I was there you would have to admit you were there, which if its a professor that generally isn't going to happen. I think it would really depend on the person's attitude, I'd probably acknowledge them, say hi and then let them enjoy their night. No reason to make a situation more complicated or awkward. That being said I did have an EMT who dropped patients off at a hospital I worked at run into me and it was awkward because he kept coming in to the club and then asked me out over a sick patient at the hospital...not cool and very awkward but I think he's just a creep anyways lol

Second question: First night stripping is no fun. I made $117 (which was the best thing in the world at the time). I was shaking and nervous, the girls were mean and caddy, I looked like a baby giraffe on stage. I was too scared of everything to take the manager up on the free shot so I was sober and terrified. My first every lap dance was a $10 floor dance and the customer tried to stick his finger in my butthole - this made me panic and run away without collecting my money. In short the first night is the worst but you learn to laugh at yourself, grow thick skin, and not look like an idiot pretty quickly.

A:

Reese Puffs the truth


Q:

Do you secretly judge people who order a double chocolate chip waffle?

A:

Though I am from the state of Indiana and cannot vote for you , it is nice to see a more moderate Republican. As a lifelong liberal, I'd like to see both parties lean more middle. Can I get you position on both 2nd Amendment Rights and your stance on LGBT rights?

Though I am from the state of Indiana and cannot vote for you , it is nice to see a more moderate Republican. As a lifelong liberal, I'd like to see both parties lean more middle. Can I get you position on both 2nd Amendment Rights and your stance on LGBT rights?


Q:

Two local stores have kids that are always playing around inside, and they are there so much I have literally watched them grow up to some extent. Did you have this same experience? If so, how would you describe being there so often?

I know exaclty what you are talking about. I am one of those type of kids!

The restaurant is a love hate relationship! Its great because it keeps your family so close together, but at the same time it keeps them far apart because they are working 24/7.

however, it is a unique eperience, you learn about tons of different people and personalities. you also learn about the value of money and work ethics!

Q:

It's lightly seasoned wet batter ( water, salt, oil, egg white, flour)

Cooking is 4ish steps:

  1. marinate in he chicken in light seasoning
  2. mix in batter
  3. fry it hot oil to lock on the batter
  4. lower the temp of the oil to fully harden the outside and cook the inside
  5. Stir fry the chicken with the sauce.

A:

Voting patterns change with each election -- and the demographics have changed in Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, McLean, and Fairfax. There are more Millennials in my district than almost anywhere in the country -- I am a Millennial (just barely!). There are more Latinos in the 8th than ever before -- my mother is from Ecuador and I have been campaigning in English and Spanish. There are a tremendous number of Federal workers who are frustrated with the status quo Federal bureaucracy and would love to see better incentives for innovation and pay based on their performance. And there are a lot of small business and startups that are hitting roadblocks because of high taxes and heavy regulation. The incumbent, Don Beyer, isn’t focused on any of these issues. I AM. I got into this race because my friends, neighbors, and coworkers all #ExpectMore from Congress. I intend to deliver for them.


Q:

North american Chinese is definitely easier and cheaper to prepare. Most of the prepping can be done in bulk and final product from the precook stages only takes a couple minutes.

Authentic chinese food requires more ingredients and a longer cooking process.

I prefer authenic chinese food on a daily basis but I do get cravings for the north american style.

A:

The Fed is doing a fine job. Regular audits of government agencies are a good thing, so I would support auditing the Fed. Gold standard = out a long time ago. On Keynes: government spending on public infrastructure is good and necessary. There are positive economic externalities associated with it building roads, drinking water and wastewater systems. That said, government cannot afford and should not spend in every sector. Government can't pick the winners and losers --- that the job of the free market.

Q:

This question is going to be a bit personal so hope you don't mind, but did you ever feel 'forced' to work in your family's restaurant? I sort of come from the same background where my family owns a diner and sometimes I just get annoyed at the fact I feel chained down as I started working there since I was 14 and almost all my free time goes into there even now at 18. On some days I can look past it because hey family is there for one another and I can relieve some stress on my parents but sometimes I can't help but feel sad that my life is passing me by and I just don't have that many fun memories of my teenage life.
I love them for sure do not get me wrong! I'm mostly annoyed at the situation rather then being mad at them. But I just wanted another person's perspective on it.

Q:

We have a regular we actually do make pancakes for, but honestly if we were caught doing it we'd be in deep shit.

A:

Well … I didn’t write the GOP platform. I was on the road working during the GOP convention when the platform was written. I’m not a millionaire career politician like my opponent -- I’ve got to work to pay the bills and so that I can take the next few month off to campaign. I am a Republican because I believe in economic freedom and personal liberty. I believe in the Virginia Republican Creed: http://www.virginia.gop/virginia-republican-creed/ and it doesn’t say anything about marriage equality or climate change. Donald Trump vowed to defend the LGBTQ community -- that’s a good thing. I want to shape the future of the Republican Party and I am proud to represent the next generation of leaders in the Party.

Q:

I have had those thought as well. And I view them in almost the same way. I guess the question to ask yourself is, do you want to continue this as a source of income or do you look for something else in the future. Once you figure that out, you will be able to decide how you want to proceed with you career. Best of luck to you

Q:

I prefer to dance topless, I did a short stint at a full nude club in Chicago and found that the prices were RIDICULOUSLY LOW ($350 for an hour of private dancing - me walking with $270 after tip out) that made it not worth the nudity. Most clubs that are full nude also don't serve alcohol so you get an either underage or sober crowd which is just a little rough to work with.

A:

My German fans get SUPER drunk.


Q:

Any weird stories about sketchy people that you remember?

A:

PSST.. Dude, you're giving away trade secrets here.. I would keep a look out if I were you.


Q:

I once ordered Chinese food using GrubHub and it arrived at my house 15 minutes later... How is that possible? It was typically ordered Chinese food and I live about 2 miles from the shop, but i figured it was all made to order.

A:

Thanks for the reply. It's funny you mentioned Chicago. I was there a few times for work several months ago, so naturally I googlemapped what strip clubs were around. I didn't go to any because it was hard to tell if any were worth going to. You don't have to suggest any by name if you don't want to, but it would be nice to know for the next time I am in town.


Q:

What's your favorite restaurant? Local/national/global?

A:

Plenty. Most sketchy and recent happened just a few days ago. Some dude stumbled in, went to the men's room, was in there an hour before a cook banged on the door telling him if he wasn't going to eat get the hell out of dodge. After yelling five more minutes the dude left, cook checked back in the restroom, dirty needles and blood everywhere, was not pretty from what I've heard.


Q:

its okay :)

its easy to say, hard to do!

A:

The store probably wasn't busy and you were the first order there.

Those woks are damn hot and a $20ish order can be cooked under 7 minutes :O

If you are 2 miles away, then I can see them making an order and delivering under 15 minutes.

your lucky day :D

Ever see "The Search for General Tso" ? It's a documentary all about how and why that dish got to be so popular. Based on your answers to other questions in this ama I think you might like it. It's on Netflix I think.

Q:

[removed]

A:

I often find General Tso to be too sweet and not spicy enough. It's rare I find what I consider to be good General Tso. Is it supposed to be less heat and more sweet, or am I just finding subpar chicken?

How is easy is it to spot a first timer at a club? Have you danced for one? (Basically asking what not to do when attending a club for the first time)

What's the funniest/interesting story you have about a private dance?


Q:

Hey Waka Flocka, mashed potatoes or corn?

edit: its urgent pls respond

A:

You can absolutely take a coffee cup that means I have one less cup to wash. If you have a cool waitress/waiter and ask if you can buy one they may just tell you to stick it in your pocket, otherwise just steal it, we may just call you "it's that one guy that took the coffee cup." Lol

I can most certainly say it's probably because of the cooks, it gets hot as shit up on that grill line especially when it's busy and you got a lot of bodies behind the counter.

I even get super hot and sweaty running around, making coffee, setting people up while getting the high bar drinks then having to rush over to take my food out.


Q:

The majority of customers usually find sweet better than spicy and it probably the reason why you are having a hard time find just the right chicken.

Most places will not be able to make it less sweet but they can definitely make it more spicy. Maybe you can ask to get it extra spicy and it can mask some of it sweetness?

A:

I havent seen it, but I will definitely give it a shot when I have time :)


Q:

Most likely they'll tell you. "This is my first lap dance". I dance for one at least once a week and it's generally pretty fun because they're more nervous than you are and are (generally) VERY respectful.

I had a customer get a $1000/hr champagne room so he could rub my back and talk to me about his cat. It was great.

A:

sorry for delay... garlic mashed potatoes


Q:

How often do people ask to talk to a manager?

Q:

What's your life outside the restaurant like? Do you have a lot of free time to yourself?

A:

Is it worth it? I have a friend that did that and she said no


Q:

How tall are you? I met you in Dallas this past September in some park area near the Wells Fargo building. I'm 6 feet tall but I remember you being tall as fuck

A:

We run a decent shift so it doesn't regularly happen, hell i'd probably say 3 times a month.

All in the bean baby.

A:

I am actually a college graduate looking for higher education right now. So I do that in my free time.


Q:

It really depends on the person. For me it absolutely is and I actually enjoy it (most of the time). I've had friends that have tried it and didn't have the same experience and they generally quit after a few weeks.

Very much depends on your own personal experience, if you let people being assholes roll off your back or if it bothers you, also it depends on how dancing makes you feel. For me it is a huge confidence booster and has taught me how to socially interact with a wide variety of people. But I know girls that it had the opposite effect for. So really just depends on the person - for me, absolutely worth it and I love my job.

A:

6'5"


Q:

I'm from the UK and Waffle House is one of my very favourite places in the US. A couple of years ago I wanted to get a souvenir and asked if the coffee mugs were for sale. Our waitress said "sure, 5 bucks" and I gladly bought one. I've always wondered if they really are for sale, or if she was just feeling particularly entrepreneurial that evening? - not that I'm complaining! We left $20 on a $15 check either way.

IS THIS ENOUGH QUESTION MARKS FOR YOU AUTOMODERATOR? ???? ?? ?????? ??????? ???????

Second edit: it seems my phrasing about the tip was off. The check was $15, we left $35 in cash on the table. I gave the waitress $5 in cash directly in exchange for the mug.

A:

Ok so this question is about the little bags of fried noodle strips that come with wonton soup. The place near me always had the absolute BEST fried noodles, like I would order wonton and get 3 extra bags because they were so good. Then one day they switched to the horrible stale noodles I find at most chinese places. Were they making their own and then started buying the cheap ones? How can I get those amazing fired noodles again?


Q:

How can I get REAL Chinese food without being offensive? I love a little traditional Chinese restaurant near me. Traditional Northern Chinese food (I've been told). I found it through a Taiwanese friend who was visiting me for a year. When I went with her, the food was AMAZING! Hands down The Best Chinese food I've ever eaten. She's now gone back home to Taiwan. The last time I went with my family, I feel like they gave us completely different food: Americanized (or Canadianized in my case) versions of what we ordered. Example: crispy sesame beef - the sauce wasn't the same. It was ketchup-y. It happened again the next time I went. The only difference is that my Chinese, Mandarin speaking friend isn't with me. So, how do I let them know that I want the real stuff? I don't want to order a pork bun or those black noodles (not actually noodles, but fern roots) and get some weird American version.

A:

Hi! Thank you for this AMA! Have you ever felt disgusted or dirty because of stripping?


Q:

Mr. Flame, you owe me 12 dollars for a vodka and red bull I bought you a couple weeks ago in Atlanta. I will attach a proof photos if you respond. I want my money.

A:

Probably entrepreneurial.

I had a lady ask if she could buy our shitty version of A1 steak sauce, I found an unopened one and told her 2 bucks, she gave me a fiver for it then left a 16 dollar tip.

To be fair she was drunk off her ass but still, god I wish she'd come in more often like that.


Q:

percisely!

you have two options for crispy noodles as a restaurant owner. You either buy the premade ones (stale) but easier to do. or you make your own. To make your own, you have to get egg roll wrapping and cut them into strips and fry them.

A:

Thats hard to do. Unless its on the menu, you will need to know the chinese name or the english version of the chinese name and ask if they can make it for you. They will know what you are talking about as long as you get the name correctly. You wont offend in anyway by asking for more authenic food as long as you know what you are looking for!


Q:

My job is gross! I am doing super strenuous activity (pole dancing is HARD work) plus I grind on strangers for money....who knows where they've been. Also you inevitably end up rolling on the stage or floor. After work showers are the BEST things ever. It's not uncommon for me to be dripping sweat on a busy Saturday night.

If you're talking about psychologically - no. If someone is making me feel that way I simply end the dance, because they're an asshole. There are plenty of people who will pay me for my time without behaving like a dick. I have only ever ended three lap dances and two of them were because the guy was being an ass. So I guess my answer to that question is no one should make you feel disgusted or dirty no matter what your job is.

The most "violated" I've felt as a stripper was when a customer wanted to lick my arm pit....ugh so unpleasant.

A:

Please provide receipts with photos.


Q:

Used to work at a WH. They're literally 5 bucks. And you have to put it on a separate ticket and stuff it in the drop box.

A:

Is it ok and would they know what I was talking about if I asked them to make the homemade ones for me? What should I say? I would be so happy If they would and I could regain my addiction to wonton soup :)


Q:

Thank you and your parents for having the dedication to run a restaurant. I've been buying from the same family owned place for 20 years and haven't found anything like it wherever I go.

How important is the family business to you, or other generations of family?

A:

I have only ever ended three lap dances and two of them were because the guy was being an ass.

What was the reason for the third one?


Q:

Waka, would you rather have a giant fully functional vagina on your forehead or have an array of fully functional penises on your back like a stegasaurus? You gotta pick one

A:

I guess ours are different, we only sell mugs forreal where it goes to the company is around Christmas time when they have the limited edition ones.


Q:

I am sorry to say they probably will not be able to make it for you only. You will have to let them know that most people dont like the prepackaged ones and let them know that the ones they make themselves are much better. Maybe they will be able to change back to the old ways.

Otherwise you may have to find it somewhere else :(

A:

The restaurant is important because it is usually the only source of income for a first generation family in the US. Usually the second generation looks for more of a professional career!


Q:

Guy pulled his dick out

A:

man.... what happened to fighting one large thing or many smaller things.... Those are both horrible options... Could imagine having to be a dickasauras or vagface...What would you choose and why?

Q:

A:

Uhhhhhh, that a surprising one. If they have general tso chicken they should have orange chicken. The only difference between the two dishes is that the orange chicken has orange zest added to the sauces when the dish is in the wok.


Q:

race, age, shoes, watch

anything Big K.R.I.T.

Best thing to order at Waffle House?

Probably the cheesesteak if I had to recommend anything, best deal though is the all-star since you get a waffle for just .75 ¢ more! What a steal.

It was the crunch berry waffle, blueberry and strawberry mixed together. Until those damn corporate bastards took them both away because of food cost. Which was probably the stupidest thing ever.


Q:

The store probably wasn't busy and you were the first order there.

Those woks are damn hot and a $20ish order can be cooked under 7 minutes :O

If you are 2 miles away, then I can see them making an order and delivering under 15 minutes.

your lucky day :D

A:

You should find another place! How dare they not serve orange chicken!


Q:

Truth of the matter. In the strip club people generally behave in a herd.

A: BlueBerryMuffins

Q:

Or if you're a regular and know how to eat cheaply, get Originals with no cheese. $1 burger. And a water. Then tip your waitress 100%. $4 meal and once you become a regular the waitresses will give you soda and put a "W" on the ticket.

And after a while the cook has those originals going before you even get in the door when you pull up.

I get mine with toasted buns. Easier for the cook and not greasy and burnt buns.

Oh, and do NOT FUCKING COMPLAIN. If your original is a bit too done, your bun is stale, etc. STFU, you're eating a dollar burger. Get over it.

EDIT: Thanks anonymous Waffle House person. Now when I go to breakfast tomorrow and get my triple over medium sub grits for double toast dry light wheat I will open reddit on my phone and show my people there that I got gilded over a waffle house discussion!!!

A:

Why do so many Chinese restaurants get teased about their food being "cat" or "rat." I absolutely love Chinese food but do you know why that stigma is so popular?


Q:

What is in the brown sauce used in egg foo young? I typically get roast pork or shrimp egg foo young on occasion

A:

20 and in grad school already? Jesus Christ when did you start college?


Q:

Ay Flocka I was at your concert at the University of Central Florida last year that shit was lit, thanks for coming out.

My question is: Do you listen to the new wave of rappers? Like Yachty, Kodak, Uzi, 21, etc. If you do, who's your fav or who do you think has the most potenital?

Big fan of yours, Flockaveli 1.5 was one of my favorite tapes last year. I also named one of my chickens after you

A:

This man gets it.


Q:

it use to be extremely prevalent 10 or so years ago, but not so much anymore. However, I dont know the reason for it.

A:

To be honest, that is probably the hardest sauce in the store to make. So many different ingredients go into that sauce, I actually need my super secret recipe book that was passed to make it. So sadly I cant answer that right now :(


Q:

combination of classes taken in summer, course work overloads, and credit earned in high school (my HS had a program with a local community college where they basically dumped us there for a bunch of credits). So yes, I'm a baby with a lot of school under my belt.

A:

That's a hard ass chicken. 21 and Kodak for sure.


Q:

Do you get a lot of pick up to go orders?

A:

I like pressed duck. There's a place nearby that serves it, and I can order it and have it ready in "15 or 20 minutes". I have made pressed duck at home, following a receipe from the "Classic Chinese Cookbook" (I'm old. I use cookbooks.) It took me 4 hours to make pressed duck! I'm assuming that the place I order from uses duck for it's broth bases, so they've already deboned the duck. Do you serve it, if so, is that the technique you use? Or are there shortcuts?


Q:

Similar question, what is lobster sauce? It's so thick

A:

How old was the oldest person you've given a lap dance to?

Did people jizz in there pants when you're lapdancing them?


Q:

Do you shop at Walmart?

A:

Ugh yes, I don't like to-go orders that often unless they come in and place it, mostly because answering the phone and THEN being put on hold because they actually didn't know what they wanted before they called backs me up majorly. (even a bigger fuck you to me if theres multiple people in the background wanting something)

Ain't nobody got time for that.


Q:

I am not surprised it takes so long to make the duck. Duck is probably a dish that takes the longest to prepare; that's why it is so damn expensive!

The only reason they can prepare it so fast is because it has been precook. the way they probably make the duck is to massage the seasoning onto the duck and then roast the duck with the bone first. Then they de-bone the duck. At this point, they are stored until it is ordered.

When it is ordered they will roast the duck once more which will take around 10-15 minutes.

So in the end, there are any shortcuts, but a lot of prep time.

A:

Its mainly just thicken chicken broth with salt, sugar, msg, white pepper and flowered egg whites.


Q:

Mid eighties - it was pretty difficult because I was worried with how frail his body was that I might hurt him.

Second question - yes. My dance instantly becomes an air dance if they can't keep it together after that. Most "strip club pros" who come in specifically to do that will wear basket ball shorts and wear a condom...they come prepared.

A:

All the time.


Q:

I got my first old fashioned in the parking lot of a waffle house. I remember reading an article that wafflehouses have a strange ordering system, based on putting butterpackets and shit on the plates in different areas or something like that. Any credibility to that statement?

A:

What is in the brown sauce used in egg foo young? I typically get roast pork or shrimp egg foo young on occasion

A:

Did a pimp ever tried to get control of you ? Does a lot of stripper are under a pimp ? Thanks for the AMA


Q:

Waka I met you outside a Whole Foods once and you commented how you really liked my shirt and took a pic with me!

Do you remember taking this pic?

A:

Ha, nice man.

But yeah totally, we got a system for how we call out orders and how shit goes out.

Where the jelly is placed dictates how the eggs are cooked, jelly type determines toast, and a whole bunch of other complicated stuff lol

Q:

Nope. I've seen pimps in the club but I've never been their target. At the lower end clubs you see more girls who have a pimp and its really upsetting to see girls get dropped off looking homeless by a guy in a Mercedes that their pussy paid for. Leaves a bad taste in my mouth every time I see it or hear about it.

A:

You got me good.


Q:

Ok, I'll ask. What's an old fashioned?

A:

Similar question, what is lobster sauce? It's so thick


Q:

My local Chinese take out place puts a guy that can barely speak English on the phone but a fluent guy delivers the food, can you explain the thinking behind this?

A:

Favourite song to work too?


Q:

Are you gonna put out any more "I can't rap" mixtapes? The vol 1 was really good along with some of the singles you put out after that dropped.

A:

Not the right person but I just assumed it was a handy.


Q:

Its mainly just thicken chicken broth with salt, sugar, msg, white pepper and flowered egg whites.

A:

There can be quite a few reasons. but the main reason is probably the driver doesn't work in the restaurant and is just hired to deliver food.


Q:

Oh my so many good ones..... Gods and Monsters by Lana Del Rey always makes me feel like a dramatic little vixen There's a remix of Over the Love by Florence and the Machine that's really sexy Down With the Sickness by Disturbed is my Friday/Saturday night go to that is guaranteed to have every guy singing along and also stands out in a myriad of pop/hiphop/EDM music so it get's a very good reaction Beast by Mia Martina Back to Black either the Amy Winehouse or Beyonce version

There's so many songs but usually it just depends on the mood and energy of the crowd. Sometimes the DJ will surprise me with music and those can be some of the best stage sets (or the worst - as the DJ who was tipped $20 to never play Ariana Grande for me again).

A:

Yup for sure


Q:

What is the most common order? Is there any secret menu items the public may not know?

A:

Most Chinese food places have the stereotype of being unclean. Is there any truth to this? If so, why?


Q:

I can confirm. Am a white delivery driver. They don't ask me to do anything else in the restaurant even though I'm very willing to help. I'll ask on the busiest days if they need me to do something and I don't think I've had a single night where they want me to clean tables or run the dishwasher.

A:

I'm also a dancer and I'm totally gonna try your songs.

My faves are Dawn Penn's You Don't Love Me, Lana Del Rey's Body Electric, and all Portishead and Massive Attack tracks.


Q:

What was it like working with Keith Ape? How is that dude

A:

All-star definitely because you get the most for your buck.

Like in a earlier comment we have a price chart with stuff that isn't even on the menu but it isn't that much.

Like chicken omelettes, waffle sandwiches, etc


Q:

I am not surprised from this stereotype, but it is usually dependent upon the area. I have been two a few places that i felt were not clean, but most are usually sanitary. All stores have health inspectors come by, so they have to meet some sort of standard.

If you live in a nice neighborhood, the store will be clean, if you really want to make sure, just go to the store and ask to use the bathroom.

The reason behind the negative stereotype comes from china. They probably work in a store in china and what worked over there might not work over here. I dont have any personal experience with this so I can not elaborate further.

A:

They probably think that since they dont pay you to do that, you will be unhappy do it :/

Its the sad truth.


Q:

good choices, you're a badass

A:

Together we are the Ghetto Rush Hour


Q:

Do you like waffles?

A:

Does your place proudly proclaim "no msg" like some I've seen? Because I want the damn msg! It took me some serious searching in my town to find a bag, and it was in the Asian aisle of the restraunt supply store. A little bit on meat does miraculous things.

EDIT: I know about the product called Accent guys thank you.


Q:

Ok so this question is about the little bags of fried noodle strips that come with wonton soup. The place near me always had the absolute BEST fried noodles, like I would order wonton and get 3 extra bags because they were so good. Then one day they switched to the horrible stale noodles I find at most chinese places. Were they making their own and then started buying the cheap ones? How can I get those amazing fired noodles again?

A:

Normally I wouldn't have any questions, just a general jealousy that I don't know you better..but here's one t hat occurred to me: Why the hell do you have to have a business license to be a stripper? I've never heard of that before.


Q:

What's the biggest change you noticed since going vegan?

A:

My ten year old self's old password was iwuvvleswaffles.

My ten year old self can go fuck themselves.


Q:

Dont believe the places that say no MSG. Cause their food will have it regardless. Even if they dont add additional MSG, the sauces will have it.

A:

percisely!

you have two options for crispy noodles as a restaurant owner. You either buy the premade ones (stale) but easier to do. or you make your own. To make your own, you have to get egg roll wrapping and cut them into strips and fry them.


Q:

Some counties/cities do it some don't. Phoenix did it before they hosted the Super Bowl because they had an influx of traveling dancers and could charge each one $25 (I think that was the price, don't murder me internet if I can't remember) it was an extra bit of revenue for the city.

A:

I just physically and mentally feel so much better.


Q:

Are the steaks frozen or fresh?

A:

were your parents cooks in china? why did they decide to come here?


Q:

Is it ok and would they know what I was talking about if I asked them to make the homemade ones for me? What should I say? I would be so happy If they would and I could regain my addiction to wonton soup :)

A:

In your opinion, is the average age of the strip-club-visiting populace slowly growing older?

tl;dr: There will always be an 18-year old kid who goes as soon as he or she can, but on average, the people willing to pay for porn (not watch, but pay for) are usually married or divorced men over 30. The few times I've been to a strip club, the same held true, possibly even a bit older. My question is about the rate-of-replacement from newer generations of people willing to pay for these things, kind of like a birth ratio for new-strip-club-goers. I've heard that in porn, the demographic is slowly drifting older, and wondering if it is the same for stripping, because porn has become so common it's basically lost its value.


Q:

What up big flock, what team are you on, on Pokemon go homie?

A:

Frozen sadly, they still taste good though to me. I'm no food connoisseur however. Bonus; probably everything tastes fresh when you're drunk.


Q:

No my parents were not cooks, they learned to cook when they got out here! Short answer, the money and better life

A:

I am sorry to say they probably will not be able to make it for you only. You will have to let them know that most people dont like the prepackaged ones and let them know that the ones they make themselves are much better. Maybe they will be able to change back to the old ways.

Otherwise you may have to find it somewhere else :(


Q:

Yes, the strip club industry has been down for the last several years. There was a high in pre-2008 and it's gone down since then. If a club is more of a party club where you have a younger crowd throwing stage tips music video style that would be the exception. One stripper wrote (not sure which book it was in or I'd quote her) you make 80% of your money off of 20% of customers. Also a lot more girls are getting into the industry so theres more girls and less money to go around.

A:

Red, is that a rhetorical question?


Q:

Are you concerned about the stability of the house, being made of waffles and all?

A:

How can I get REAL Chinese food without being offensive? I love a little traditional Chinese restaurant near me. Traditional Northern Chinese food (I've been told). I found it through a Taiwanese friend who was visiting me for a year. When I went with her, the food was AMAZING! Hands down The Best Chinese food I've ever eaten. She's now gone back home to Taiwan. The last time I went with my family, I feel like they gave us completely different food: Americanized (or Canadianized in my case) versions of what we ordered. Example: crispy sesame beef - the sauce wasn't the same. It was ketchup-y. It happened again the next time I went. The only difference is that my Chinese, Mandarin speaking friend isn't with me. So, how do I let them know that I want the real stuff? I don't want to order a pork bun or those black noodles (not actually noodles, but fern roots) and get some weird American version.


Q:

Does your place proudly proclaim "no msg" like some I've seen? Because I want the damn msg! It took me some serious searching in my town to find a bag, and it was in the Asian aisle of the restraunt supply store. A little bit on meat does miraculous things.

A:

So I assume your school is unaware of your job? If so, are you afraid of this secret getting out and possibly affecting your relationships with instructors/faculty?


Q:

Holy shit my name is wakaflockaveli in Pokemon Go

A:

Nah I feel like we got the upper hand on pancake hut.


Q:

Thats hard to do. Unless its on the menu, you will need to know the chinese name or the english version of the chinese name and ask if they can make it for you. They will know what you are talking about as long as you get the name correctly. You wont offend in anyway by asking for more authenic food as long as you know what you are looking for!

A:

Dont believe the places that say no MSG. Cause their food will have it regardless. Even if they dont add additional MSG, the sauces will have it.


Q:

Yes school is unaware. If it did I would hope that my professionalism/work ethic/established relationships would matter more than the fact that I spend my weekends getting topless for money.

A:

You better be team red or we gonna have some problems.


Q:

Do you know that we're all stoned?

A:

Why doesn't my local Chinese restaurant sell orange chicken!!??


Q:

Why do so many Chinese restaurants get teased about their food being "cat" or "rat." I absolutely love Chinese food but do you know why that stigma is so popular?

A:

Did you ever have someone you know or someone from school see you there?

If so, how did it feel and do they act different towards you after that?


Q:

How many vegan blueberry muffins do you eat in one sitting?

A:

Do you know we're probably even more stoned?


Q:

Uhhhhhh, that a surprising one. If they have general tso chicken they should have orange chicken. The only difference between the two dishes is that the orange chicken has orange zest added to the sauces when the dish is in the wok.

A:

it use to be extremely prevalent 10 or so years ago, but not so much anymore. However, I dont know the reason for it.


Q:

Already answered - copy and pasted for ya

I haven't had this exact experience yet, but generally strip clubs are anonymous zones - for you to know I was there you would have to admit you were there, which if its a professor that generally isn't going to happen. I think it would really depend on the person's attitude, I'd probably acknowledge them, say hi and then let them enjoy their night. No reason to make a situation more complicated or awkward. That being said I did have an EMT who dropped patients off at a hospital I worked at run into me and it was awkward because he kept coming in to the club and then asked me out over a sick patient at the hospital...not cool and very awkward but I think he's just a creep anyways lol

A:

How many are in front of me?


Q:

Have you ever me Bert, creator of the most decadent chili on this great earth?

A:

They have general tso's but no Orange chicken! :(


Q:

Most Chinese food places have the stereotype of being unclean. Is there any truth to this? If so, why?

A:

9


Q:

No, :(

I don't think anybody in my store has actually met him not even the managers, I'll have to ask the district if I ever get the chance to see him again.

A:

You should find another place! How dare they not serve orange chicken!


Q:

A:

Q:

Have you ever engaged in sex with a customer in the restaurant?

A:

My local Chinese take out place puts a guy that can barely speak English on the phone but a fluent guy delivers the food, can you explain the thinking behind this?


Q:

Does your chef(s) ever cook regional, authentic Chinese food? Whether it's for fellow coworkers or perhaps special requests from costumers (if that's possible)? If it's possible, how would I go about making that request?

Thanks!

A:

If music hadn't worked out, what other industry could you see yourself working in?


Q:

Strangely no, I've asked my favorite co-workers to join me though.

A:

There can be quite a few reasons. but the main reason is probably the driver doesn't work in the restaurant and is just hired to deliver food.


Q:

We do cook authentic chinese food for ourselves and we do make it by special request to the customers!

You just have to know the name and how the dish is like and then ask if they know what you are talking about and if they have the ability to make it! Some authentic dishes require a lot of prep so they wont be able to.

A:

Security making sure rappers are safe.


Q:

Aaaaannnd?!

A:

I can confirm. Am a white delivery driver. They don't ask me to do anything else in the restaurant even though I'm very willing to help. I'll ask on the busiest days if they need me to do something and I don't think I've had a single night where they want me to clean tables or run the dishwasher.


Q:

Can you recommend some authentic dishes?

A:

when in Flockaveli 2 going to come out? and will there be a Ferrari Boyz 2?


Q:

They laugh me off like usual, hurts me to my very soul. :(

A:

They probably think that since they dont pay you to do that, you will be unhappy do it :/

Its the sad truth.


Q:

One of my favorite authentic dishes is Cantonese lobster!

A:

F2 dropping this winter ....FB2?????


Q:

I know in Texas you're not supposed to smoke in restaurants, but every time I've gone to a Waffle House outside of Dallas (late at night) when someone starts smoking they pull out an ashtray for them.

Does this happen everywhere or is it only in Texas?

A:

Does your chef(s) ever cook regional, authentic Chinese food? Whether it's for fellow coworkers or perhaps special requests from costumers (if that's possible)? If it's possible, how would I go about making that request?

Thanks!


Q:

(Half) Chinese here! My mother owned a Korean restaurant during my youth-teen years that I helped out at. Not sure why but I couldn't ever eat at other Korean restaurants (used to eating at my mom's place, free food vs paying,etc.) until well into my college years.

How often, if at all, do you eat at other Chinese restaurants? Can you just enjoy the food or do you compare/critique it?

A:

FOH boy with your lying ass. Detox gonna drop before Flockaveli 2.


Q:

I guess only in Texas.

Most people here have common courtesy not to smoke but if they ask if they can; after that whole ordeal with that waitress getting shot in the head over telling some guy not to smoke, we tell 'em "we didn't see nothin'."

A:

We do cook authentic chinese food for ourselves and we do make it by special request to the customers!

You just have to know the name and how the dish is like and then ask if they know what you are talking about and if they have the ability to make it! Some authentic dishes require a lot of prep so they wont be able to.


Q:

I actually eat at other chinese takeouts pretty often when I am out an about.

Its fun trying out different places and comparing them to your own. So I do critique it but it doesnt mean I dont enjoy it when I do.

A:

Q:

What's your opinion on the hit Waffle house jukebox single "Raisins in my Toast?" And furthermore, what's your opinion of the person who plays it 5 times straight, throws in 1 of Marvin Gaye's "Let's get it on," and then plays "Raisins in my Toast" 5 more times.

A:

Can you recommend some authentic dishes?


Q:

What is your favourite Chinese takeout item to eat?

A:

Dropping this winter? I just don't believe


Q:

I'd rather be cunt-pounded by a steel beam than listen to it.

A:

One of my favorite authentic dishes is Cantonese lobster!

It's a sweet, spicy, peppery dish!

Absolutely delicious!

How often, if at all, do you eat at other Chinese restaurants? Can you just enjoy the food or do you compare/critique it?


Q:

Did you ever go to/live in China? Where are your family from?

A:

How's the competition for the next presidential election? Do you think that you can beat Yeezus himself?


Q:

No. :( I've gotten pretty much everyone I've asked though to see my tits since I got them pierced. That's rewarding.

A:

I actually eat at other chinese takeouts pretty often when I am out an about.

Q:

yes I have, I live in china from right after I was born to 4 year old and then went back for vacation a couple times. I havent been back in 10+ years though.

A:

Waka running agains Yeezus... Team Flocka needs to start working out our campaign strategy now!


Q:

What is the secret to eggs scrambled with cheese?!? They seem so simple, but I try to make them at home and its just a symphony of disappointment.

A:

Okay a few questions:

  1. Every Chinese place near me has the exact same egg rolls. I mean like they look and taste EXACTLY the same. Same thing with a few other dishes like lo mein noodles, sesame chicken, etc. I assume there's some food supplier in the area that they all get their stuff from. Any thoughts on this / how widespread is this? How much of typical Chinese food is made from scratch vs made from prepackaged ingredients?

  2. You mentioned food coloring. How much food coloring is typically added to a dish you make? Do colored dishes sell better than the same uncolored dishes (which presumably taste exactly the same)?

Also thanks for the clean bathroom tip, I'll have to check that out :)


Q:

What is the number one thing you would never order from a Chinese take-out restaurant?

A:

Would you consider a run as Yeezy's Vice Pres?


Q:

Probably the mini cast iron skittle we have, all it takes is your eggs, two slices of American cheese and put it in after its melted and stir.

I'm stealing one once I quit.

A:

There are usually 2-3 competing suppliers for every location, but all those suppliers stock the same products and its just the price that is different. Now to answer your question, there are premade egg rolls and I am sure places order those egg rolls because they don't want to make their own. However, I am not sure how widespread it is. Even places that dont order the premade egg roll still have to order the veges to put in the egg rolls and that is the same regardless of where you go. And becauses egg rolls are so lightly seasoned and the veges are usually the same, rolls premade or not usually look and taste the same. There are small differences if you pay close attention, but usually people put such an abundance of extra sauce on it that they cant even taste the difference anyways.

Most chinese food dishes are made from scratch and rarely are they ever prepackaged. the most common thing that is prepackaged are probably dumplings.

There are two food coloring that most stores use. one is egg yellow and the other is red. The yellow one is usually to lightly color the wonton soup base. And the red one is for everything else. I am sure you noticed that pork is normally grey put in chinese food it is red. A hint of red usually makes it more appealing to the eye.

I cant say much about the selling stance as I havent done a controlled comparison, but it wouldnt surprised me if it did.


Q:

Probably french fries if they offer it. We dont but i know some places that do.

A:

Would he consider to run as mine?


Q:

I like your mugs. How much do you care if I just take one with me when I leave?

A:

What's the worst client you had to deal with?


Q:

What's the worst client you had to deal with?

A:

Waka, do you remember performing at Cal State Fullerton for our spring concert? It was fucking awesome. I lost my shit when you played 50k.


Q:

What mug.

A:

One of the most common sayings you hear in the food service industry is that "The customer is always right." I wish you didnt have to follow this rule, but no matter how much you hate it, there is a reason for it.

Because of this mindset, you get these customer sometimes that believe they can do whatever they want.

One time, this individual comes in with an already eaten dish. I mean like, the dish was already almost done; only a couple pieces of veges left on the plate. he claims that the dish is not what he order and ask for a refund and starts throwing a fit while there were tons of other people around. he throws the food on the ground and then leaves. We end up with a mess and dead silent waiting room. What an asshole

Yup LIT as always.


Q:

Everyone there at night is just coming off a party, right? Are there folks who just legit want eggs and bacon while sober?

A:

My local place doesn't give much of a shit and gives customers hell if they're royal pricks like that. It's hilarious to watch.

A:

Are you the inventor of the 'squad' popularity ?


Q:

Actually yes, most people getting off work from warehouses or bartenders themselves. We get occasional sober strippers too.

How are they stll in business! Must have some amazing food lol

Americans have a restaurant with nothing but waffles? How do I go about moving to this place?

A:

What is your favourite Chinese takeout item to eat?


Q:

Okay a few questions:

  1. Every Chinese place near me has the exact same egg rolls. I mean like they look and taste EXACTLY the same. Same thing with a few other dishes like lo mein noodles, sesame chicken, etc. I assume there's some food supplier in the area that they all get their stuff from. Any thoughts on this / how widespread is this? How much of typical Chinese food is made from scratch vs made from prepackaged ingredients?

  2. You mentioned food coloring. How much food coloring is typically added to a dish you make? Do colored dishes sell better than the same uncolored dishes (which presumably taste exactly the same)?

Also thanks for the clean bathroom tip, I'll have to check that out :)

A:

Favorite strain of weed?


Q:

Haha, we have other stuff too like hash browns and eggs. But to go about moving your best bet would be Atlanta I hear they got one on every corner.

A:

MONGOLIAN STYLE DISHES!

It's a sweet, spicy, peppery dish!

Absolutely delicious!


Q:

There are usually 2-3 competing suppliers for every location, but all those suppliers stock the same products and its just the price that is different. Now to answer your question, there are premade egg rolls and I am sure places order those egg rolls because they don't want to make their own. However, I am not sure how widespread it is. Even places that dont order the premade egg roll still have to order the veges to put in the egg rolls and that is the same regardless of where you go. And becauses egg rolls are so lightly seasoned and the veges are usually the same, rolls premade or not usually look and taste the same. There are small differences if you pay close attention, but usually people put such an abundance of extra sauce on it that they cant even taste the difference anyways.

Most chinese food dishes are made from scratch and rarely are they ever prepackaged. the most common thing that is prepackaged are probably dumplings.

There are two food coloring that most stores use. one is egg yellow and the other is red. The yellow one is usually to lightly color the wonton soup base. And the red one is for everything else. I am sure you noticed that pork is normally grey put in chinese food it is red. A hint of red usually makes it more appealing to the eye.

I cant say much about the selling stance as I havent done a controlled comparison, but it wouldnt surprised me if it did.

A:

Purple Cookies


Q:

Does your location never have pie too? Chocolate creme pie seems so rare and I've heard employees save most pieces for themselves since it's not always available.

A:

Did you ever go to/live in China? Where are your family from?


Q:

Why do some places not run air conditioning and leave the front and back doors open?

A:

What's your most favourite and least favourite car?


Q:

That is severely accurate, haha.

We have one customer we call the pie guy and try to hide a piece of chocolate pie for him.

A:

yes I have, I live in china from right after I was born to 4 year old and then went back for vacation a couple times. I havent been back in 10+ years though.


Q:

The truthful answer: We are cheap people trying to save some money here and there

The usual answer: Its because we expect the customer to be in and out as it is a take out store and the A/C doesnt work in the kitchen because the ventilation keeps if from staying cool.

A:

Ghost is my favorite

Any Car under 80k i hate


Q:

Favorite way to do hashbrowns? Any secret menu combos people should know about?

A:

Ive had two styles of crab rangoon, some on the sweeter side, and some more on the savory side. Why is that so? Is it regional or just a matter of preference?


Q:

Chinese takeout varies around the world. Is it chef's knowledge or business that restricts? In Australia every takeout will offer a 'Honey Chicken' - have you ever heard of it?

A:

what made you decide to go vegan? do you shop at wholefoods?


Q:

Personally I like them well, in the ring, smothered and with worcestershire.

As for secret menu we actually have this pricing chart with a lot of stuff that isn't actually on the menu. Like chicken omelettes, waffle sandwiches, etc

A:

You are talking about the cream cheese crab rangoon right?

It is a regional preferences, they try what people like.


Q:

Yes I have seen and have had it in the US. But not every place has it. The variety comes not from the chef, but what the customer want. If it isnt popular and it isnt being served, there is no point in having it on the menu.

I personally like honey chicken, but people dont like trying new things :O

A:

Tired of being fat...Whole Foods is my spot!


Q:

Why do some places not run air conditioning and leave the front and back doors open?

A:

One more question, are you offended if someone doesn't tip for take out? I tip most times but sometimes I think it's unnecessary.


Q:

What new rapper do you think has the most potential?

A:

The truthful answer: We are cheap people trying to save some money here and there

The usual answer: Its because we expect the customer to be in and out as it is a take out store and the A/C doesnt work in the kitchen because the ventilation keeps if from staying cool.


Q:

Never! No one should be forced to tip. If you like us or the food then tip if you want, but dont tip because you think you have to! I would never go to a place that forces people to tip, especially take out!

A:

21 Savage


Q:

Thank you for doing this actually. My main question, which is probably unanswerable, is why so many delivery places really do bad food. I just keep looking. In any case, did you see this really fascinating article on how Chinese restaurants in the most remote, tiny towns throughout the States get their labor? http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/10/13/cooka%C2%80%C2%99s-tale

A:

Hey, I'm a chef / food scientist and I had a couple questions.

First off what types of vendors do you use for your primary suppliers? Do you use a vendor for a lot of the "chinese food place" stuff and then a separate vendor for your wholesale produce and meat or do you buy from one company?

I read some of your other responses in regards to prep, particularly what you mentioned about bulk prep. Do you rely on tools as often as possible (mandoline, food processor w/ attachments) to speed things up or is everything done with a big ass chinese cleaver?

I've worked with commercial wok stations before, they use a ton of gas. What's your gas bill like usually?

Have you had any questionable issues with health and safety inspections? (On your part or theirs).

Do you experiment with cooking a lot outside of what you cook at your restaurant? Do you have any kind of desire to work in different types of kitchens or make different types of food?

Thanks for doing the AMA. I love cooking on a real wok burner btw, it's like cooking on a jet engine.


Q:

How come you weren't at the Gucci and Friends show?

A:

Actually that question is quite answerable!

The places that do delivery usually do it because it adds a source of business in which otherwise their store will not get. Usually places that are not busy will do this to get more business. And why are they not busy? Its probably because the food is not so great!

I good chinese food takeout will have people willing to come pick up the food because they know they make tasty takeout!

I have not seen this article, but it is not unfamiliar territory. We dont do this at our store, but it does happen :O


Q:

Here we go, one by one!

We personally use there different suppliers. One supplier for the utensil and containers, one for produces and typical chinese food stuff, and one for meats.

Almost everything is done with a big ass cleaver! However, we have small knives for deboning and a big mixer for the marination and mixing process when we season the meats. We also have a deli slicers as well. And a meat grinder to make grounded pork and mix dough (works well).

I can really comment on gas bill, as I dont have any one hand and I dont usually do the gas bills, sorry.

Our places is usually clean but we alway have the mark were things are not covered. We cover everything daily, but it get so busy during the day that its hard to keep it covered when the health inspector arrives. We are talking about food in the fridge.

i dont really have time for cooking outside of the restaurant so I have not. I don't have any desires besides maybe learning some sushi :O a fine art!

A:

because im not a friend


Q:

How often do you burn/ruin/make the wrong dish?

A:

Whats the key to a solid Crab Rangoon?? I just can NOT replicate the stuffing!


Q:

Obvious q: What inspired you to launch LFJ4 ?

A:

quite often actually, maybe once a day? not because we take the wrong order, but because the chef sometimes gets orders mixed up because there are so many.


Q:

It would be, thoroughly mixing the season into the cream cheese.

A:

because I know I owed it to y'all.

Q:

What did you think of the vice article written about a day in your life? I personally enjoyed the part where you explained what 'rooster' was!

A:

Shoutout to Vice that was a dope article.


Q:

Do you find that most dishes are nothing like what you would get from Chinese street vendor. In Australia most of our "Chinese" food is deep fried which can make it really unappetizing. What's your favourite dish?

A:

As a jew, I just want to say thank you for always being there for delivery on Christmas day (well, for the people in your line of work always being there). My favorite thing on that day is giving the driver a wrapped "Christmas" present. it's kind of a tradition now.

How busy are your Christmas days? Any good stories, or is it just extremely busy and stressful? I guess this depends entirely on the area you live.


Q:

Come to /r/hiphopheads

We love u there and hella stoked for this new southside collab tape.

Waka become friends with gucci again because I need another song like

Fell featuring gucci mane and youngthug is that cool??

Alsoo duflocka rant 2 is your best tape certified classic to me.

A:

That definitely is true. The food you find in our North American Chinese takeout is vastly different than chinese street vendor!

Favorite NA chinese take out dish : Mongolian style dishes.


Q:

We are actually fairly busy around Christmas time. I am trying to remember a good story that involves a customer but none is coming to mind right now. If I think of something I will let you know.

A:

Waka loves /r/hiphopheads right back! This Waka x Sizzle tape is major! Why do you think DuFlocka Rant 2 is the best?


Q:

What does "Szechuan" mean? Never knew this.

A:

Ive had two styles of crab rangoon, some on the sweeter side, and some more on the savory side. Why is that so? Is it regional or just a matter of preference?


Q:

Who's your favorite Pokemon?

A:

That word is derived from a location in china. the food of from there is extremely spicy so "Szechuan" style dishes are usually spicy.


Q:

You are talking about the cream cheese crab rangoon right?

It is a regional preferences, they try what people like.

A:

I'm tryin to catch em all....


Q:

I order and eat at many chinese restaurants around the bay area, and I am always amazed at the sheer madness that goes on in those kitchens! (During lunch hour), I love the mongolian dishes, especially the "trio" when they add pork/beef/shrimp all in one (not many places have it)

I have one question for you, what is the best type of beer that you would recommend for your typical american chinese fare? Keep up the hard, often thankless work!

A:

Is there any way to make that delicious neon-red sweet and sour sauce at home? I've tried many recipes but they never come out like the restaurant.


Q:

Hey Flocka! I'm sure you've experienced a pretty wild lifestyle change since your music career skyrocketed. What's something that you've still not gotten used to (for better or worse)?

A:

The two type of beer you will usually find at chinese gathering is corona and heineken! Pretty simple, but we like it :0


Q:

I am not familiar with home cook chinese takeout. So I dont know the secret to it. sorry.

I think the best idea is just to go to a chinese food takeout place and ask to buy some unheat sweet and and sour sauce. They definitely will sell it and it will be cheap!

A:

The fact that people view me as rich&famous... I could give two f... you know the rest


Q:

Chinese takeout varies around the world. Is it chef's knowledge or business that restricts? In Australia every takeout will offer a 'Honey Chicken' - have you ever heard of it?

Q:

What will be your first act as president?

A:

Yes I have seen and have had it in the US. But not every place has it. The variety comes not from the chef, but what the customer want. If it isnt popular and it isnt being served, there is no point in having it on the menu.

I personally like honey chicken, but people dont like trying new things :O


Q:

What do you mean "and then" sir? :O

Q:

Are you nervous about doing deliveries to specific neighborhoods?


Q:

Since you have worked with Munchies before, would you consider doing a version of Action Bronson's "Fuck That's Delicious" that's totally vegan?

A:

Q:

I guess I am not cultured enough, You have enlightened me!

A:

That'd be dope. Vice let's do it.


Q:

And then?

A:

Do you find that most dishes are nothing like what you would get from Chinese street vendor. In Australia most of our "Chinese" food is deep fried which can make it really unappetizing. What's your favourite dish?

A:

I always post an email thats going to get to me somehow. No reason to be scared to send it what's the worst thing that can happen?
