Life in China 生活在中國

Did you know there are between 22-50 million muslims in China based on UN estimates?
That means there are more Muslims in China than entire Europe!


Muslims are well known in China for making the best food! especially lamian!check it out

The Hui food looks very very good.

I wish Japan didn't have such crappy Chinese food. I don't know why, we have a lot of Chinese, but all the stuff here is Japanese-Chinese with the same exact menu in every restaurant.

Cantonese cuisine is great, but we don't even have that here. just aspects of it, like a limited form of Yamucha. I want my chicken feet!

Cantonese, Shanghainese, and Szechuanese are the 3 best cuisines from the mainland IMO.

I find everything about the Yellow River fascinating from its cultural significance as one of the worlds great civilisation rivers to its geology and geography. Its power of destruction and creation.

I hate Chinese-Japanese food, except for the items totally adopted into Japanese cuisine like "gyoza" or "ramen" (which is now being exported back to china!).

As for Chinese-Chinese food I quite like the food in Hong Kong!
