I love Cantonese and Teochew style Chinese food the most, most of their dishes are tasty and varied. Not only that, but also relatively healthy and fresh. And here in where I live in Indonesia, Cantonese and Teochew dishes always dominate the menus at every Chinese restaurants.

Sichuan style Chinese food also pretty good, but too spicy and not very healthy. So I could eat Sichuan food for once a while.

Shandong style Chinese food is fine. I like their seafood dishes and pancakes.

Shanghai style Chinese food is okay, I like the Shanghai style dumplings.

After spending the last week in Hunan and eating homestyle dishes basically every meal, I think I've had my fill for the next month or three...

Too many sautéed greens with a bitter flavor. Bland or weak sauces. After awhile, it all tastes almost the same and you just want it to stop, but your family keeps feeding you more and more and more.

I really want some chongqing noodles right now :'(

I noticed nobody selected Huaiyang until I did.


I guess that's because most people outside China have no idea of its existence. In fact, it is one of China's big four cuisine styles.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huaiyang_cuisine


Huaiyang cuisine is widely seen in Chinese culinary circles as the most popular and prestigious style of Jiangsu cuisine - to a point where it is considered to be amongst one of the Four Great Traditions (四大菜系) that dominate the culinary heritage of China, along with Cantonese cuisine, Shandong cuisine and Sichuan cuisine

There is no such thing as "Chinese soup". It is like saying I like Italian meat.

A major difference betweeen Hunan and Sichuan cuisines is that Hunan does not use starch to thicken the dishes. Thickening is used more widely in Sichuan. e.g. Mapo Toufu
