Yeah, I think this series will be a fun one for the foodies out there. We are going to spotlight a few popular dishes from each province of china, and we will list another 4-5 in the supplementary section as well.

I want to say this in the spirit of discussion. To say that any restaurant is the best Chinese restaurant in the world is a stretch. I'm surprised that the New Yorker, prestigious magazine it is what makes us of sweeping generalization. As you may or may not know a few years ago when desktop publishing was invoke the New Yorker was one of the first to modernize its print facilities going totally digital using Macintosh computers. The unintended consequence of that move was the abrogation of the rights of working people in the print industry. Now as you know, or I suspect you know the New Yorker was a strong advocate of labor rights. But when he came down to the bottom line i.e. money; you forgot its ideals and move forward into the future. The world is indeed a strange and wonderful place since I was able to avoid or perhaps should I say have been deprived of the eating of jellyfish for almost 60 years until I came to Taiwan where that food is commonly served. Anyway food is really a code word in China for sex. If a young pretty Chinese girl offers you something to chew on and calls it a nutritional supplement don't turn her down.
