What do you think about Chinese food?Did you ever eat them? It won't be a big discussion,not with the country,history,or culture. It is just about the Chinese food you have ever tasted with your tongue. For example,Kung Pao chicken which usually comes up in american plays.

hi susan. first off, welcome to mylot. always abide by the rules and regulations of the site and for sure you'll never go wrong. for any other questions or clarifications, you are most welcome to contact the site admin or even the more tenured members of the site. you'll find out that the mylot community is a very helpful one. back to the discussion on hand, i'm a big fan of chinese food. here in our country, we have a place called 'china town' (i think that most countries have their own versions of 'china town' though). i visit it often to eat at the restaurants located there and to purchase chinese delicacies like rice cakes and dumplings. i don't have a favorite chinese dish but if i have my way, i'll definitely have lots and lots of servings of different kinds of dimsum. cheers and happy mylotting!!!

Hello, susan, welcome to mylot ^_^ In Indonesia there are many Chinese and Japanese restaurant. But I would prefer local restaurant that provide local food or general food. Some of my friend love both Chinese and Japanese food, I’m not really like to go for it. I’m not familiar with the taste and it’s taste quite strange for my tongue. Once in a moment my friend take me to the Chinese restaurant, I don’t know what the menu I have to reserve until my friend give a suggestion

being a strict vegeterian..i am just left with so less options in the menu card that i mostly prefer going for other continentals..i know they have a quite number of food stuff in vegeterian table too..but its not chinese's forte..!! noodles , triple rice , manchurian soup , rolls and frankies..thats all you have here in india under vegeterian chinese menu..!! i must say the quality is good but the quantity creates the prroblem..the things i mentioned dont even fit into a weekly schedule..!! but seriously speaking my all friends (non-vegetarian) love the chinese food..they are it's big fans..!!

I like the kind of chinese food that I have tasted, but I am sure that food inn a good restaurant in China must be a real treat. The best chinese food I have eaten was many years ago, in Chinatown, in San Francisco (USA). There were only chinese people eating there so I thought that maybe that was not a restaurant for tourists. We were lucky to find it.

I like Chinese food a lot. In the city where I was born there are many Chinese restaurants and I liked visiting those restaurants. Some of those restaurants had a big buffer where you were able to try many different dishes. I think that was a nice way to try many different kinds of Chinese food. I don't know the names of the all of the food, but most of it was very delicious. There are no Chinese restaurants on the island where I live now, but my husband and I sometimes visit the Chinese restaurants on the neighbour island. We went there in May when we celebrated our anniversary, and we had a lot of delicious food
