iReport: My favorite Chinese meals
“Food is the sky for people,” runs an ancient Chinese proverb.
Peking duck, hot pot, xiaolongbao, fried noodles … travelers in China often find themselves stuck between choices of what to eat, rather than where to visit.
In a recent iReport assignment, we asked foodies to share the stories and pictures of their favorite Chinese meals and we heard from all over the world.
“After visiting 50 countries so far, China is my favorite for food,” says Tehran-based British iReporter Adam Amir Smith, whose most memorable Chinese food is the spicy and numbing Chongqing hot pot.
"It’s dangerous and delicious,” adds Smith.
