Chinese cuisine is defined by wikipedia as “Chinese cuisine is any of several styles originating from regions of China, some of which have become increasingly popular in other parts of the world – from Asia to the Americas, Australia, Western Europe and Southern Africa. The history of Chinese cuisine stretches back for many centuries and produced both change from period to period and variety in what could be called traditional Chinese food, leading Chinese to pride themselves on eating a wide range of foods. Major traditions include Anhui, Cantonese, Fujian, Hunan, Jiangsu, Shandong, Szechuan, and Zhejiang cuisines”
I think chinese is some of the best food out there. I do enjoy Indian and Greek food as well but I can pretty much always eat chinese food. My favourite is Hakka which is a mix of indian and chinese food but I’ll take a nice spring roll any day. Dim Sum is delicious as well and I’m a huge fan of sweet and sour spare ribs. Some of my friends are big into chicken balls but I’ve never been a huge fan. If you happen to go to a nice hakka place I always highly recommend ordering chili chicken and chicken pekora. Chili chicken has a nice kick to it that will make you sweat. I’m not really sure exactly how chicken pekora’s are made but I do like them. Squeeze some lemon on them and they are an amazing treat. Last week I had the pleasure of going to Esquire Great Eastern and trying some of there food and I was really impressed.
Toronto is a very multicultural city and thanks to its wide variety of people there are tons of great ethnic restaurants. On every corner you will find a Chinese, Japanese or Middle Eastern restaurant. My personal favourite cuisine is Chinese. There is nothing better then some sweet and sour spare ribs and chicken fried rice with a few spring rolls and a nice hot and sour or wonton soup. I usually get takeout or delivery about twice a week. Below are my 5 favourite Chinese restaurant
