The Chinese Food Culture Guide

Chinese people love to eat and China boasts one of the world's greatest cuisines. During the long period of development of the eating culture, there formed many things about the eating that foreign visitors may find quite different from what they are used to and even feel weird. Chinese cuisine culture goes sophisticated as the history of China goes.

Vegetable Chinese Dish

A vegetable Chinese dish is also a healthy choice. For example, a plate of Stir-Fried Greens (including spinach) has 900 calories (this is roughly half the calories required in one day for the average adult) and 2,200 mg of sodium (this is roughly a whole day’s worth for the average adult).


Tofu (a bean curd) is a common Chinese food in vegetarian diets. It supplies same amount of calories and sodium as in the Stir-Fried Greens, when deep-fried as it in the Tofu & Mixed Vegetable dish. It is good for health.


The Shrimp is also a very popular Chinese dish. Shrimp with Garlic Sauce dish with vegetables is lower in calories (700). However, they are very high in sodium (3,000 mg).


Chicken is considered better for health than red meat however not when it is fried like it is in the General Tso’s Chicken dish (which comes with vegetables). This dish has 1,300 calories and a whopping 3,200 mg of sodium.

Sweet & Sour Pork

The Sweet & Sour Pork dish has lower sodium (because of more sugar). However, it has 1,300 calories.
