    Smile orange goop

    Hello. I'm wondering what orange goop is in this context below.
    Is it a kind of sauce or something?
    Thank you.

    ----------
    Yum Li's isn't like most Chinese restaurants, where they rush the food out right away.
    Here, you have to wait. No bowls of crunchy noodles and orange goop, either.
    It's just ice water and the smell of other people's dinners.

    It's orange-coloured sticky/semiliquid sloppy stuff. (COED)

    So would I.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: orange goop

    In this case, you could also call it "duck sauce."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
