Chinese food – foreigner favourites

These are dishes foreigners learn to order soon after arriving. I’ve avoided highlighting them as many miss out on the other awesome food in China. But I give in – they are pretty yummy, and many of you who have left China miss them.

My favourite liangcai

Most Chinese meals begin with cold dishes. They are pre-cooked and can therefore come to the table quickly, giving patrons something to nibble on while waiting for the main dishes to arrive. Sadly, many foreigners aren’t very familiar with liangcai.
