Do you try and pronounce the names like they do, or just normally? Like

>puhrk loh-meh

Or

>pork lo-mein

Like I want to sound cultured and stuff, I even have the Asian Riff on my tablet so I can play it for them when they bring the bag to the counter.

>pronounce the names like they do
Literally everything in Americanized Chinese food is [flavor] [protein]
Hot and Sour Soup
Ginger Beef
Orange Chicken
Mongolian Beef
Salt and Pepper Prawns

Pronouncing it like they do is just mocking their accents.

>not going to a dim sum restaurant and butchering XLB's pronunciation like the white boy you are

personally what i do is perform a deep bow and then, from the folds of my kimono (which i always wear to show respect for asia's beautiful culture) i procure a scroll on which i've written my order in immaculate kanji using my calligraphy set. anything less is disrespectful

Who the hell worries about stupid shit like this?

Unless it's something you literally can't mispronounce I'll just point it out or say the English name if it's there. They really don't give a shit as long as they can easily understand what you want.
Unless you just want to give them something to laugh about in the kitchen at closing time.

>giving a shit about pronouncing a word from a language that you don't speak, and that is in fact so far removed from your language that the fucking shape of your soft pallate isn't conducive to pronouncing it.
I don't use this image often.

I bow to them

They are serving me food. My servants are below my station. Thus, I do not care what they think of me. They'll clean my shit off their toilets and like it.

I like Chinese. I just say "a fourteen, a seven, a nine and lychees," and see what I end up with. Makes things more fun.
