The many renditions of their food are an assurance of the majority’s thoughts on it—which are all thumbs up. The reason behind most Chinese food lovers’ enjoyment of it is from its authenticity and versatility. Chinese food has always been the subject of interest and critique, with the many controversies regarding its ingredients and even method of cooking. This, however, has not stopped foodies to still enjoy their dishes. Authenticity No cuisine is like the Chinese.

With the many different styles of Chinese dishes from all over the world, their distinct taste has stuck through a variety of mixtures despite other elements being added to it.

By combining the good points of the different cuisines, a unique dish is given birth to. In America alone, dishes like Chop Suey, Sweet and sour pork, chicken or fish, Lemon Chicken and Fortune cookies, all do not exist in China. They, however, still count as Chinese food fused with American chefs’ thoughts and ideas.
