Eating Out in Manchester's China Town
Town has what is thought to be one of the largest Chinese communities
outside of China and possibly the largest in Europe. Therefore, the
city and region naturally boast a large number of Chinese, Eastern
and other Oriental restaurants and cuisines. Whilst there are many
located centrally in China Town there are innumerable others to be
found in the wider surrounding region of Greater Manchester.
Several styles of Chinese cuisine have emerged as popular around the
world, each originating in a different regions of China. The most
popular traditional Chinese dishes include sweet & sour dishes,
crispy duck and dim sums, and food styles includes Szechwan, Pekingese
and Cantonese cuisines. In China, cooking is regarded as an art form,
allowing for creative and stylistic variations to recipes and menus.
