Same here. The traditional and fusion ones are both delicious even though the latter is so fattening. I remember one of my college friends went to China to study aboard and he mentioned in his FB that he thought traditional Chinese food sucked. When a friend, who was born in China, read it, she got so mad and got into a fight with him about it.

Oh, wow! I hope the fight didn't last very long...
So, out of all the Chinese cuisines, I like Shanghainese cuisine the most. And from their traditional dishes, I like Xiao Long Bao, San Jing Bao, Hong Xiu Rou and Xin... All those are romanized from their Chinese names, so I'm not sure if it'll turn out in Google searches. (Except Xiao Long Bao... they're famous~ )
Have you tried many different Chinese cuisines?
Not really. I ate pork buns and Chinese desserts but I haven't really tried other Chinese cuisines. Most Chinese restaurants usually made Americanized versions. I would love to try dim sums especially since I saw a TV special about Chinese foods. ^^
Ahh, I see. Yeah, we have the "authentic Chinese" and the "Westernized Chinese" restaurants here. We usually go to eat at the authentic Chinese ones, and we hardly go to eat at the Westernized Chinese ones.
For food, Shanghai is the best!!! From the random street food stalls to the high-class restaurants, the food in Shanghai is just the best~!
It's all the same in Germany, in terms of restaurants it's close to tell where the real asian food begins (Chinese/Japanese/Thai and an indian one in my home town) and how long it's only the westernized versions.
For the cheaper takeaways it's obvious like all around Europe/America probably.
Yo Ice how are you doing?
I always catch you off. Today I missed you by a few minutes XD
I wish there were different Chinese cuisines in the restaurants down here... They all make the same thing. There's a Chinese restaurant at every corner these days,hardly any Japanese restaurants and so far I've only been to one Korean. The Korean food was amazing though
I think I'll become a chef
I'm doing pretty good, summer vacation is nearly over though. It's been pretty hot the past few days, so I'm expecting a storm or something soon... And you? How's school going for you?
Ooooh~ What did you eat at the Korean restaurant? My favourite Korean dish would probably be Bibimbap. Or did you go have a Korean BBQ?
You're lucky. I would love to eat for free in a Japanese restaurant
I didn't try the Bibimbap,I had the BBQ. I had no idea what was what, I just picked a number but it was a lot of food and it was amazing It's the best restaurant I've been too. There's even Karaoke if I wanted to annoy people with my voice
Indeed I am.
Ah, yeah the BBQ is always awesome. I'm going to have it in a few days, I think... my friends and I are planning to go have lunch at a KBBQ.
Oh wow, it was that good? Do you like eating really spicy stuff?
Once, I had a KBBQ and there was a plate of baby octopi... we cooked them for a while, and it was still gooey in the middle. Since I was the only one there who liked octopus, I had to eat it all.
Bahahahaa karaoke! I haven't been to one, and I don't think I ever will. Do you know if there were any KPop songs at that karaoke?
Hello Iceiphoenix, nice to meet you You seem to have quite an interest in food, or is it just that the conversation in this thread is leaning in that direction?
Have you ever been to Shanghai?
I think that's just because I started talking about making sorbet and ice cream.
Oohhhh wow! Wouldn't it have been very cold, then? My uncle lives there and he said that for a few days, his car wouldn't start because of the cold...Quote:
And yes! Romanizing Shanghainese is quite hard.
Questionable, but worth a try. Do you remember the names of the restaurants you went to? There was one I went to, called Shanghai Dynasty, and the interior was realllly beautiful! And the lobby was furnished with (fake?) Versace couches.Quote:
How else would I know that the food in Shanghai is the best?Quote:
Hmm... the average temperature during winter is usually 10-20C I think... But at night, it goes down to 2-5C probably...
Erm, it snows in China as well, you know. Shanghai is kind of up north, so it's quite cold in winter... but Beijing would be even colder.
Oh I thought Shanghai was further up to the south, gosh I can be so bad with topography :/
I think even your 2-5° doesn't feel the same like here if I consider air humidity but that's pure speculation again
