What do you eat in China?

What is really eaten in the Asian country has little to do with what we normally find in Chinese restaurants in Spain. The rice three delights? The caramelized chicken? The sweet and sour pork? An invention for western palates.
Sometimes dishes of a culture are popularized that are deformed and spread throughout another country in such a way that they have nothing to do with the original. Have you been to a Spanish restaurant outside of Spain? You can find everything … the softest thing we can say is that the chefs have never set foot on Spanish soil.
Well, the same thing happens with many Chinese restaurants in Spain. So whether or not you like the Chinese food you’ve tried so far, it doesn’t matter, because it won’t have much to do with what you’re going to try in China.
