Or do they just call it food. This is one of my favorite jokes. But no matter how many times I pull it, it makes me wonder. I have been to China a couple times and I don't remember them calling it Chinese food.

LOL of course not! i'm sure they don't call their food Chinese food when they are talking amongst themselves. like we do. however, i think they sometimes refer to their food like "Chinese delicacies/food" when talking with someone not Chinese or foreigners or maybe when talking in an educational show or whatever. ^__^

I haven't actually been to china but i wouldn't of thought they would call their food chinese food. It would probably be called traditional food or not even have a name for the food. If it was called chinese food, it will be in their language anyway. ~Joeys wife

Thanks for commenting. It is interesting to think how other cultures view things different from us.

If you are in China, the food there is called Chinese Food because of some chinese delicacies they put. But if you are in Thailand, the food there is called Thai Food. And in the Philippines, the food is called Filipino Food.

I don't think so that they'll be calling it Chinese food. They must be having different types of food in their different states.

Well they are so big and they must have local cuisine like we do in the U.S.
