This was my first visit to China, and I most certainly enjoyed every moment. Ordering food in restaurants was definitely an adventure, especially when you don’t speak a word of mandarin and the person serving you knows no English. We had some amazing food in Beijing and Hong Kong, and seen some traditional delicacies.

1st tip: sharpen your skills with chop sticks! Majority of places in Beijing will not provide cutlery (especially if you visiting traditional Chinese restaurants).

We visited a number a traditional restaurants and we loved the variety and the food…
