    Share the Food
    The entrees you order will be served in bowls and your rice will come in single serving bowls. Entrees are shared dishes. Just take a little at a time from each dish. The dishes usually are not passed around – you must reach to get what you want. If I couldn't reach the dish I wanted, I would ask someone to help me reach the food. The would pick up the food for me and place it into my bowl. In big fancy restaurants and hotels, there are lazy susans, and the food moves around the table several times so you can choose what you like.

    Table Setting in a Typical Chinese Restaurant
    At a Chinese restaurant, you will generally find on the table a small teacup (without a handle) and a small plate, an empty rice bowl and your chopsticks. The small cup is for tea. The small dish is a refuse plate, for bones and grissle and anything else that is not edible.

    Washing your dishes and choptsticks
    The first thing you do is ask for a pot of green tea and a large bowl to be brought to your table.

    If you have disposable wooden chopsticks, take them out of their wrapper, break apart, rub together lengthwise several times to remove any slivers of wood that might get into your food or your mouth, the set them on your small plate.

    When the tea arrives, stand the chopsticks in the rice bowl or tea cup and pour the boiling tea down the length of the chopsticks. Then swirl the boiling water in the tea cup – making sure to rinse the edges where your lips will touch. Do the same with the rice bowl. Empty the boiling water into the large bowl. The waiter will take it away when you are finished. Don’t count on the table being clean – keep your chopsticks on your rice bowl when not in use. If any food should drop on the table – leave it there – it is considered unfit for eating after it has touched the table.

    Napkins
    If you want napkins in a Chinese restaurant, you must ask for them. A package of tissue or a roll of toilet paper will be brought to your table. You will pay extra for this. Water is never served free at the table. You need to buy bottled water or sodas with your meal.
    Local Chinese Restaurants

    There is a wide variety of restaurants, from food stalls on the street to one table restaurants to 3 floor restaurants with private rooms. Only in the coastal cities is it common to see women eating in restaurants. In the past and even today in the more rural areas, restaurants are mainly occupied by men.

    MacDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken can also be seen in some of the larger cities. The Chinese have similar fast-food chain restaurants of their own.

    Specialty Chinese Restaurants
    There are also specialty Chinese restaurants serving regional food, for example:

    Shanghai food (which tends to be sweet)or
    Hunan Province food (which is spicy)
    Guangzhou food (which is a lot of seafood and steamed items)
    Beijing food (which is noodles, dumplings and duck)
    noodle and kebob restaurants from the Turkish part of China
    Chinese restaurants from Xizhang specialize in lamb dishes
    and there are very popular old-fashioned country-style food restaurants.

    In the larger cities, coffee shops, tea restaurants and dessert restaurants are starting to pop up.

    Street Food/Food Stalls
    Restaurants that are basically food stalls are for quick, on the run, cheap meals and frequented mostly by students. They are found right outside the gate of the schools and offer fried rice, soups and other local specialties. They also do a brisk breakfast business, serving steamed buns, fried dumplings, congee, noodles, fried rice and other Chinese breakfast fare. One of my favourite breakfasts was cooked on the street on the top of a large metal can. A crepe was made of flour and water. An egg was cracked over the crepe and spread out thinly to cook onto the crepe. Then a piece of twisted fried bread and some hot sauce was set in the center of this very large crepe. When cooked, it was wrapped around the fried bread and handed to you (about the size of a submarine sandwich).

    You do need to be careful when eating at small Chinese restaurants and food stalls. They are not the cleanest places and you don’t always know what is in the food they are serving. It is easy to get diarhea. For several months, I was buying some fried dumplings on my way to work each morning. They were tasty enough, but I could never quite place what type of meat was in the filling. It was a light grey colour. Upon asking one of my co-workers about the dumplings – they laughed and told me that a lot of the small shops often serve rat meat in the dumplings! I stopped buying dumplings!

    Ordering Food in Chinese Restaurants
    If there is a group of you, the rule of thumb is order one dish per person plus rice. It is usually at least one vegetable and one meat dish. If you are in the larger cities, you may be lucky enough to come across a restaurant with an English menu. Then you know what you are ordering. However, the translations from Chinese to English are often hilarious and provide a lot of humour over dinner.
    These dishes were copied from a menu in Beijing:
    Multi-leyer pigs ears
    Bean curd with Chinese toon
    Elbow meat in soybean sauce
    Jelly head with vinegar
    Lobster eatin in two ways
    Belly of fish like hand
    Torrified live mandarin fish
    Quick fried duck's tongues and webs
    Tipsy Spirit Wine
    Cococole tinned (coca cola)
    Wineral Jujube drink
    Ice Cream Bottle
