You can't go wrong with KungPao Chicken, and Sweet and Sour Pork Those two are must try in chinese food The thing is though, different restaurants have different style, so do a culinary travel around your cities or different countries to try them. Sometimes they taste bad in some restaurants, but when it is good, It's really tasty, so yeah, try different restaurants to discover the best

I absolutely love Chinese food but to pick out a favourit is virtually impossible. There are so many regional variations but I probably enjoy more Cantonese style dishes than any other, especially sea food. The food in Hong kong is quite amazing. I used to like all the dishes that seemed unusual to westerners but each time I visit I see less and less of these available. I like the market stalls and the offal stores even though I'm not always sure what it is I'm eating there! I do a lot of chinese cooking myself and my best two dishes are broccolli with garlic and also green beans with chilli in oyster sauce. I like Szechuan cooking as its so spicey, sufficient to make your lips go numb. I love won ton soup. I like the fruits you can buy in Hong kong but never see in the UK and a lot of vegetables I dont even know the name of. Any time I'm in China I eat whatever is set before me without complaining. The only place I had bad food in China was in a post hotel in Shanghai, well maybe it wasn't so posh as it was full of cockroaches. The live fish in the tanks looked distinctly unwell! I broke my teeth there. I love the bananana bread in Guagzhou, bought hot at the railway station. I like chicken feet but find them hard to get. The various ways squid gets served I never tire of. Strangely I really like hot chicken wings in McDonalds and KFC in China, very different from those you get in the UK. I think they have peanut on which wouldn't be allowed here. I dont think I'll ever tire of chinese food or China itself. The only thing I never liked so far was some very fat wet sloppy noodle served to me in shanghai, at least I hope it was noodle, LOL. I struggle to enjoy the seaweed soup they used to serve you with everything when I first went there, that seems to have mostly gone now. China is changing so fast. I hope I go back someday. Yunnan is my best experience so far.

Thank you for sharing your opinion.I think you should also taste Chekiang style dishes next time come to China.The snacks in WenZhou are very delicous,and I recommend you to try a chaffy dish called Gu Tou Bao(???). Yunnan is one of most beautiful places for it has wonderful nature view in China.and could you sharing your memory in there? I mean photos shot in there. thank you very much!

We are living in neighborhood of China, but we feel that they are quite different in their living style, in their culture and in their cooking and manners of eating. We eat with the help of our fingers and they use straws or straw made tong in place of fingers and spoons to eat some thing. Here in our country Pakistan Chinese restaurants are very popular. We like to visit the Chinese restaurants to enjoy the Chinese dishes. Chinese soup is very popular in our country and now it is available every where in our area. We like it very much.

Yes, I like Chinese food. It's really amazing watching Chinese prepare their food yet it's more enjoyable to eat it. Though Chinese cooking or foods maybe a little fatty because they always do some frying, the food tastes really yummy. I like it.

I love to have chinnese food, i think in this house we have it about once a week but I have to get it in as I hate to cook it as it is never the same taste. I love chicken balls and chow mein but by fav of all time is the currys they make, I hate to eat curry from a curry house but I think a chinese one has all the right spices and taste mmmmmmm

Hi i have tried many different types of chinese food and i love the best their Singapore noddles. But it is amazing that different takeaways have completely different tastes of the same noddles. And I like shredded duck and bbq pork with fried rice. Month ago i tried first time in my life Thai food and it is the best from all those Asian types. It has nice taste and is lovely. Try that
