Best Chinese Foods


The Top Ten

1 Sake Amiyaki Gohan

STOP the barbaric Yulin dog meat festival.

Yea this is Japanese. Sake is Japanese. - Silverfroststorm

Ehm... This is delicious, but aren't some of these items Japanese, not Chinese?

2 Chow Mein

I love the flavour good texture very nice

So delicious

3 Dumplings

Japan, Vietnam, and Korea also has dumplings

Love dumplings! So tasty!

Haha! Most of the items on this list are either:
a) Japanese
or b) "Chinese" food, (a.k.a. American food that has little conection to China)
The only real Chinese foods in the top ten are dumplings, white rice and soy sauce.

4 Grilled Teriyaki Seabass
5 White Rice

This is also American and Asian

Love this

6 Yaki Udon

Uh... Japanese. I don't really like how everyone just assumes Korean, Chinese, and Japanese are the same. I mean, it's ok since the languages are similar, but udon is obviously Japanese, not Chinese. - Silverfroststorm

7 Soy Sauce
8 Chicken Tama Rice
9 Sweet and Sour Chicken

Also an American Chinese food. - Silverfroststorm

10 Spring Rolls

Vietnam also has these

I like the unfried Chaozhou version of Spring Rolls which is called "Popiah."

The Contenders

11 Lo Mein
12 Diced Sautéed String Beans with Garlic Sauce
13 Sesame Chicken

14 Mixed Vegetables
15 Vegetable Fried Rice

American Chinese food. I have never seen this anywhere in China even though I stay there two months each year. - Silverfroststorm

19 Cha Han
20 Chicken and Prawn Hot Pot
21 Ebi Chilli Men

Japanese - Silverfroststorm

22 General Tso's Chicken

Its american chinese you can't find it in china that much - thunderclanrocks

HOW IS GENERAL TSO'S CHICKEN NOT FIRST? It tastes delicious. The sauce is tangy and sweet. The chicken itself complements itself just right to it. GTC rocks.

23 Swordfish Steak

Never even seen this in china - thunderclanrocks

24 Deep-fried Tofu With Fried Rice (Vegan)
25 Hot Pot

Lots of effort required to make a good soup base. You can add anything in it, and dip it in soy sauce. It also brings people closer together, too, since a hotpot meal usually have a lot of people eating together. Cold weather? Lazy to cook? Want to invite neighbors? This is the dish for you. - MChkflaguard_Yt

This is delicioes make a good soup (which takes someime unless you buy a soup base) invite friends and neibors get some vegtibles and meat and enjoy - thunderclanrocks

26 Salmon Karroke
27 Vegetable Roll
28 Sweet and Sour Pork
29 Char Siu (Honey BBQ Pork)

They taste delicious - ElSherlock

These are good but whenever my dad goes to buy them he always buy the ones with the most fat in them.

Best pork you'll ever have, period. Plus when you have it with rice, it is just amazing.

30 Malatang

It took me sometime but I figured it out someting sorta like spicy soup not sure exact translation - thunderclanrocks
