Pro Chef Tries to Make General Tso’s Chicken Faster Than Delivery | Taking on Takeout

Harold Villarosa, like many of us, grew up eating General Tso's chicken. It's a takeout staple that you've probably ordered at some point. We challenged Harold to make his own General Tso's chicken with fried rice faster than it takes for delivery to arrive. Was he up to the challenge?
Looking for a way to support restaurants and cook at home? Do as Harold does in this new video and take on takeout: order your personal favorite delivery dishes and try to cook them at home in the same time it takes for them to arrive. You’ll be putting money into the restaurant industry, challenging yourself, and you'll have double the food. See if Harold, who grew up eating General Tso’s chicken at countless Chinese-American spots in The Bronx, can create a version similar to the takeout one.

I would love to see XiaomaNYC try Harold's food vs the food he can find them for chinese food. See if that changes Harold's view on it any or if he pretty much still hates chinese food.

I'm Chinese, in South East Asia, and wondering who dafuq is General Tso. Here we have "gu lao rou" as the equivalent I think, though it's missing the chilli. Edit: I know who General Tso is since I read up on Chinese history, but the dish is literally made up and has nothing to do with the man
