Default what is the most popular chinese dish in your country?

as China is well-known for her rich variety of cuisines, just wonder what is the most popular chinese dish in your country.

i used to study in UK, i worked in a Chinese Take-Away part time for a year, it seems to me the Brits like fried rice dish and beef in green pepper black bean sauce. i was once asked what is the difference between the Chinese and the Brits by an old army soldier , my first response is the Chinese will live to eat while the Brits will eat to live.

it is quite interesting to learn different culture in different country.

Here in Southern California, we have this amazing place called Panda Express. Orange chicken, beef and broccoli, fried rice, chow mein, sweet and sour pork etc...There are 2 types of Panda Express workers, ones that scoop big and ones that are dead to me.

The Korean owned Chinese restaurants make Champong kind of like a seafood noodle soup that's good as **** and Jia-Jang-Myun kind of like noodles with black sauce which is equally as good. Don't know what the black sauce is called, it's freakin good. There are rarely any places that sell authentic Chinese food in Cali.

I had a Chinese roommate once and she ate some funky **** like green almost rotten smelling eggs and some other stuff that I couldn't even identify.

Some of my favorites, but some were - as I understand it - invented here by Chinese immigrants to the USA...

Sweet & Sour Chicken
Teriyaki Chicken
Mongolian Beef
Teriyaki Steak
Fried Won Tons
Kung Pao Shrimp/Beef/Chicken
Peking Duck
Egg Foo Young
Garlic Chicken
Egg Rolls
Fried Rice
Spicy Chicken (like Sweet & Sour Chicken with attitude!)
Dim Sum

All of these are pretty popular. Here, we have many, many Chinese Buffets, so we can have a variety when we go. But the BEST Chinese food definitely does NOT come from the buffets. For the best stuff, you have to search for a REALLY GOOD restaurant. Those are few and far between.

Chinese food here is known for the MSG...

Also, a lady who owned a Chinese restaurant told me the food is quite different here than in China. She said when she served food, it is a lot of meat or chicken with a little bit of rice and some vegetables. When she ate, it was a large portion of white rice with some vegetables and a little bit of meat.

Teriyaki Chicken MAY be Japanese, I am not sure. But Mrs. Ing served it in her restaurant as an appetizer - that and teriyaki steak. It came in thin strips on wooden sticks and IT WAS WONDERFUL! Alas, she closed her place and retired a few years ago. Everyone I know misses the place. She had awesome food and it was not very expensive. Her place served the best egg rolls I ever had.

If you are in Southern California you definitely should try a place called Tasty Siam in Harbor City (near Wilmington,CA). They have some of the best Thai food in the area.

I usually start with an order of Sa-Te of Beef, then have their soup which is delicious, then move onto their chicken salad.

By the time I finish those off I'm too damn full to eat my main meal, haha. But if by some miracle I do I usually go with their Tasty Siam Fried Rice with Shrimp.

Since when does Thai food have anything to do with Chinese food. It's like we're having a BBQ discussion and you start talking about tacos. Unless you're one of those who think all Asians are the same.

I live in a pretty big country so I couldn't tell ya. But I love eating off the buffet. My faves are noodles, rice, general tao's chicken, orange chicken (most fave), any other chickens, and I love love love crab legs but don't care for shrimp which is odd since they taste about the same.

We went from talking about food to stereotyping? When did I exactly say or presumed to say that all Asians are the same? And Panda Express isn't real "authentic" Chinese food, next your gonna tell me Taco Bell is Mexican.

I tend to like the authentic chinese from here in NYs chinatown. The Steamed buns (sweet pork or baked sweet bean buns) and the peking duck with steamed cabbage and rice.

Panda Express is mediocre at best.

Most "Chinese" food sold here to Americans is not authentic Chinese.

Taco bell is not, of course, authentic Mexican food, but I have to admit that I LOVE their Mexi-Melts. Give me 4 of those with sour cream, and I'm happy!

Mmmm Taco Bell. Taco Bell is TOTALLY Mexican is that a joke? Tacos and burritos are Mexican man, I don't care what anyone says. Who cares if it's not authentically made, it's still categorized as "Mexican" food. Yeah you aren't gonna find authentic Chinese food here in SoCal, or it's gonna be hard. I don't think a lot of us really know what authentic Chinese foods are, I sure as hell don't I do know they eat some weird stuff though. Anyone wanna bite the head off a half-grown chicken fetus? No thanks...
