6. The originator of Mongolian barbecue, Taiwan-bassed restauranteur-turned comedian Wu Zhaonan, had originally called his creation Beijing barbecue, but he sensed that wouldn't go over very well during the time of of Chinese political unrest when he first offered the concept at his food stall in the early 1950's (Wu had fled from his birthplace of Beijing at the onset of Communism in China). I'd thought the cuisine was much older, so finding out about Wu coming up with it in the middle of the previous century was news to me. How about you?

Yes, I knew that already.
