Popular Chinese Foods That are Unknown in China

No.1 General Tso’s Chicken


A dish originated in Taiwan and brought to North America. In fact, there is no such dish on the menu in mainland China.

No.2 Orange Chicken


One of the favorites of Sheldon Cooper… Does the difference between orange and tangerine also piss you off? It is a dish originated in Hunan, China and yet gained its own style in the US which is quite different from the original taste.

No.3 Fortune cookies


A popular dessert in Chinese restaurants “introduced by the Japanese, popularized by the Chinese, but ultimately … consumed by Americans”.
