Your name must came from TaiWan Or HongKong
This dish originated from Si Chuan province in south west China some 300 years ago after the name of the governor.
Kung Pao is pretty popular in the US. I've seen it referred to as Gong Bao at some places down in Chinatown as well.
There are several Asian/Chinese dishes that get posted on the boards. I'm sure you'd get a lot of interest if you post dishes you make.
