What is your favorite chinese dish?I like alot of different dishes.But,I think I like the best is "Happy Family".That meal has alot of different food in it.Like chicken,beef,pork,shrimp,scallops,carrots,little ears of corn,peas,beans.My one son will only eat shrimp fried rice and my daughter will eat that and chicken fried rice.My oldest son will only eat chicken fried rice.What's your's?

Mine would be Hawaian Fried Rice. It has chicken, pork, crab meat, shrimp and pineapple in it. I usually don't venture too much away from that unless I am eating at a chinese buffet and then I will try a lot more different things.

I feel pineapple is a fruit and more of a desert item,them with the meats and that would not taste good with soy sause on it.But,other than the pineapple it sound's great.

I love plain old fried rice with anything in it. I can make a meal from it and want nothing else. Other than that, sweet and sour pork, but not the stuff with red, sweet coating on it. That's not real Chinese sweet and sour.

It's a toss between "honey chicken" and "coconut shrimp". I also like lo mein and sweet and sour chicken. Oh, and the hot and sour shrimp. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

I have never heard of the dish "Happy Family". I am a Chinese and I love almost all Chinese dishes especially the Cantonese soups because they are not only delicious but also nutritious.

I had never heard of "Happy Family" either till my sister took me to a restaurant and said that I should try it.I have been hooked on it ever since.It is great,it is a mixture of alot of different types of food.I have found that each place make's it different and some places also call it "Triple Delight" instead of "Happy Family".But,it is not as good,because it only had three different kinds of foo in it that way.The best I have had has chicken,shrimp,scallops,beef and pork with little ears of corn,peas,mushroom's and other kinds of chinese vegetable's served on a bed of white rice.Never had Cantoneese soup.

I like Hunan Tofu. It's tofu in a spicy brown sauce with a mix of stir fry vegetables.

I love egg drop soup.I like General Taos Chicken.My husband loved that,that was his favorite.I like it some too. Usually I get Happy Family,Fried dumplings and egg drop soup.But, Happy Family is a little more expensive so sometimes I will get either general toas chicken,garlic chicken or lemon chicken.

I like lemon breaded chicken and sweet and sour spare ribs as well as beef chop suey. I like egg roles, and deep fried prawns. I never cared about fried rice unless it was shrimp fried rice. Most of what I am used to is Cantonese cooking as I used to live in Vancouver, B.C and the majority of Chinese there when I was young came from the Canton province. There are probably some more I like but the above is the most popular kind.
