DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning, I'm David Greene.
It was just a whimsical idea back in the '70s. David Chan and his co-workers decided to try every Chinese restaurant in the neighborhood. Now, the 64-year-old Los Angeles attorney has visited more than 6,000 Chinese eateries around the world. The L.A. Times says he once hit 300 restaurants in a single year. You'll find Chan using a fork. He's not a chopsticks guy.
He often gives advice to restaurant critics. Chan says he's always just been a collector - stamps, records - now dumplings.
