Does anybody know where to get sesame chicken in the German speaking part?

Basically what the title says. I'm looking for a place which serves sesame chicken ā la Panda Express or the likes. And no, Riz Casimir from Mövenpick doesn't almost taste the same...
Thanks in advance.

This recipe takes 30 minutes.

Quicker than going out to buy a take-away.

It's an American recipe (for those that don't understand how weighing scales work).

Of course he does. There's oil, sugar and probably sesame seeds in there as well. In the original, chicken may well be a minority ingredient.

Re: Does anybody know where to get sesame chicken in the German speaking part?

Why thank you folks for these "helpful" suggestions.

On a more serious note, if I wanted to cook, I'd become a chef...but since I'm in the business of eating, I'd much rather prefer to just go to a place and order food, thus my thread to assuage the craving.

I learned to cook because I like to eat well, and most places on the planet can't come close to my cooking, and it gets expensive eating at *** restaurants (plus, there's like only one in Italy, and France is a bit far)

How amusingly ironic that one of the ingredients is brown sugar.

....soooo you do know, that there will never be a *** restaurant serving sesame chicken, right?

Pardon my ignorance, but my needs may differ from yours. I'm well content with a cheapo, unhealthy sesame chicken for 4.75$.

Thank you for summing up my sentiment of cooking in such a brief and delightful way.

There are about three Chinese "take out" looking places in Old Town Bern that I've come across. Unfortunately I don't remember the names or if they have seseme chicken (probably because I haven't eaten at them), but there is a good chance they do.

One is at the food court in the station, the other two... you would probably have to ask a local for the directions because both are a little off the main streets. If I tried to explain where exactly, you might actually end up in China.

Re: Does anybody know where to get sesame chicken in the German speaking part?

The recipe looks like sweet and sour chicken and then sprinkled with sesame seeds.
