I am Chinese,I like our Chinese dished very much.I am sure most people from all over the world like Chinese food too. China is famous for its cuisine,they say Chinese are the ultimate gourmets. Today,I'd like to talk about some of the Chinese food I like. Dumplings(jiaozi),Of course ,Dumplings is my favorite. Dumplings,flour stuffed with vegetables and meats,is very popular during the Spring Festival,especially in the north of China.We eat dumplings at the midnight of the New Year'Eve and the morning of the New Year for breakfast.It symbolize fortune and blessing for its shape.It looks like a V-ship or moon,whith is similar like the shape of silver ingot used as money in ancient times. Then I'd like to talk about Fried chicken with peanut(Gong Bao Ji Ding),which is a Sichuan dish in China.It contains Bamboo shoot,chicken,peanut,carrot,green pepper,red pepper,spring onion,ginger,garlic and other ingredients. It's tastes a little hot spicy and steet.The peanut is very crispy ,the chicken is very fresh.Hmm so delicious! Oh!Eggpant!Eggplants with Garlic Sauce is also very famous and dilicous in China.I am sure you will like it too,cos I've seen many foreigners are crazy about this dish.It tastes sour and steet,the eggplant is soft inside crispy outside with fish flavour. There is other dishes I like ,such as Sichuan Style Stew Pork,Stir fried chicken with hot chilli,Fish head and beancurd soup,Steamed pork with preserved vegetable,and so on and so on. So do you like Chinese food?What's your favorite dish?

I've been loving Chinese foods ever since, I like their spicy foods. I have Chinese friends from whom I got my other Chinese favorites. But sad to say I never been to China. I would love to but that's way too far from my list of places to go.

My kids like chicken chow mein. I like hot n sour soup, I can make it myself! I also love fried rice, eggrolls, potstickers, dumplings, and twice cooked pork! I often make stirfries with tofu and vegetables, especially zucchini and mushrooms with carrots and broccoli! I learned how to make it so I can eat cheaper and more healthy meals! I have never been to China but would love to visit and even live there! I also know how to make Singapore rice noodle dish, it is so good! I agree, ginger is so good it works as a medicine! Garlic also is good in almost anything!
