Here are some of the hottest food destinations in China:

  1. Hong Kong: For the best Cantonese food, this is the perfect place to be. It is also said to be the sweetest of the eight Chinese culinary styles and closest to Western Palate!  Enjoy a delicious serving of seafood and dim sum- which is a light meal with Chinese tea.
  2. Beijing: Peking Duck is one of the classiest Chinese dishes which is exclusive to the country. Incidentally, it has originated from Bejing! However, the city has a unique cuisine of its own called the Jing cuisine. More than rice, the northern Chinese region relies on wheat-based foods such as pancakes, noodles, steam buns. Also, try the Mongolian Hotspot, which is a must try in this place.
