Did you know….

Most Americans love Chinese food, whether dining in a restaurant or from a slew of those little, folded white takeout boxes with the wire handle. However, the Chinese food found in most casual Chinese restaurants in the U.S. is very far removed from the authentic cuisine eaten daily by most people living in China.

There are many differences between authentic Chinese cuisine and Westernized Chinese food. From ingredients to cooking methods to popular dishes, the differences are numerous. In general, Westernized Chinese food is considered to be more bland and fattening than authentic Chinese food.

Chinese food is a great tasty exotic meal for those that are used to eating hamburgers and hot dogs all day.
