Chinese Food Around the World

Chinese food is one of the most popular foods in the world, and its popularity continues to grow despite the fact that it doesn’t have the same popularity in America as it does in China. Chinese food is an integral part of Chinese culture and contains cuisines originated in the many regions of China and also from Overseas Chinese who already have settled down in other areas of the west. Chinese people are famous for their liking for food, and it shows through their choice of restaurants, homes and even their mode of transportation. Chinese food is something that can be found everywhere; you will find Chinese restaurants in every corner of the world where Chinese people settle down, and there is no Chinese region that is completely without it. Of course, because there are so many different Chinese cuisines, there is a different Chinese food for every region including Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore.

One of the most popular types of Chinese food is called Wok cooking, which is a broad term used to describe any kind of deep-fried food, such as stir-fry and duck egg salad. In fact, this very dish was discovered by the Chinese people thousands of years ago as a means to cook rice and prevent it from burning when it was picked up for food. Since that time, this type of cooking has become increasingly popular among Chinese people, especially among the younger generation. Most younger Chinese people love to eat this kind of food whenever they get the chance, as it tastes so fresh and nutritious. Some would even say that its freshness is the main reason why Chinese food is so popular all over the world!

Among the most popular Chinese cuisines in the US are Cantonese, Hunan and Hunanese cuisine, Northern Chinese food and Szechwan noodles. Although these three cuisines vary widely according to place, as you would expect, they all have one thing in common: chilies. These peppers, usually green or red in color, are used extensively in Chinese meals all over the world, especially on Chinese menus for lunch, dinner and snacks. And the good news for you is that while other Chinese foods taste good, especially if you are able to avoid the chili peppers, you can still eat chilies without feeling too spicy.
