Question for native Chinese speakers: a person from the PRC just told me that this term doesn't have the same usage as the Japanese "umami" because the Chinese term is generally used for seafood dishes (but not, for example, for something like Chinese master stock, shiitake mushrooms, soy sauce, etc., which Japanese would call "umami"). Is this correct? 01:13, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
