The Chinese traditionally eat bamboo shoots with meat to help cool the heat of the meat. In some other dishes, mushrooms are eaten with meat because the mushrooms also help cool the heat of the meat. However, bamboo shoots were so popular for helping to cool the heat of meat that a poet actually wrote a poem about bamboo shoots and meats.
