1. Jeeem (US)

Without a doubt, the majority of the foreigners I came into contact. and myself included, the favorites were...in order:

1) Peking Duck

2) Dim Sum

3) Mongolian Hot Pot

Without a doubt, China is a place where the food is not only delicious, but the cheapest I've ever found.

Anyway, on my last night in Beijing before returning to the States, I went to a Peking Duck restaurant that had been suggested for me to try. Beautiful place! Gorgeous woodblock prints on the walls, fresh flowers in the vases on the table, exquisite silverware and beautiful chopsticks. I was handed a menu and found most of the prices were wicked, wicked cheap for the high quality of the food. The duck came in whole or half, along with all the little trimmings that you know if you've ever eaten Peking duck ... a little tortilla to put the sliced duck and veggies in, veggies, chopped onion, sauce ... anyway, I ended up ordering a whole duck and thought I'd just take the rest back to my hotel to eat later if I couldn't finish it.

I love sweet and sour. One of the best things made this way was a fish, fried in one piece, with a crusty layer outside, and then covered in sauce.


3. Aziz (Bangladesh)

Kung Pao (Gong Bao) chicken, egg fried rice, spicy tofu and dumplings are favorites for me. Wonton tang in Luoyang is hot and tasty.

My favorite is yuxiang rousi (Fish-flavored shredded pork)...and I'm a Belgian.

5. Colin (US)

Yuxiang qiezi (鱼香茄子)"fish-flavored" eggplant

also Yuxiang Rousi (鱼香肉丝)"fish-flavored" pork strips (neither actually tastes like fish)

Tangsu Liji (or Pigu) (糖酥里脊)Sweet and Sour Pork

Mapo doufu (麻婆豆腐)

西红柿炒鸡蛋 is also called 番茄炒鸡蛋 (fanqie chao jidan)

Huoguo(火锅) Hot Pot is also always good.


6. Yogesh (India)

I love Hunan fish! I like Chinese food. Indian food is fried or made in oil. When I was in China a year back, I ate only Chinese food. It made me feel really fresh even after having a full meal.

But I can not eat dog, beef (white cow only. Hindus do not eat cow. But buffalo is fine) insects, birds (except chicken and duck) and some other strange sea creatures.. This is so because Indians detest the idea of eating everything.
