New Zealand’s most popular food in China is in Chinese restaurants.
The dish of lamb tongue and rice pilaf is made in Chinese cooking schools and restaurants in the country.
The dishes are eaten in public places but are rarely seen outside the Chinese communities, such as in public schools, and even in homes.
But a new study from University of Auckland suggests the popular dish may not be so well known in China.
It found there are over 200 restaurants in Shanghai and Guangzhou, and it has about 200 more restaurants in cities in China’s far western region of Xinjiang.
“That means there are more than 1,000 restaurants across China, and that’s really a big number, so it means that the demand for Chinese food is increasing quite quickly in China,” Professor David Mackey said.
“It may be a little surprising to some people, but Chinese food may be really popular in China.”
The study, which involved researchers from the University of Canterbury, the University and the University Of New South Wales, found that Chinese restaurants in New South Welsh and Auckland were more popular than those in other regions of New Zealand.
“Chinese food in Auckland is really popular, it’s actually very, very high,” Professor Mackey explained.
“In New Zealand it’s lower than New Zealand.”
He said the increase was likely due to the Chinese eating habits.
“They like Chinese food because it’s a lot cheaper than New York or California or Sydney, which are more expensive places to live, or more expensive food to cook.”
So they’re spending a lot of money on it.
“He explained there was also a growing number of Chinese restaurants serving vegetarian and vegan food, which is less expensive and more accessible.”
There are quite a lot more Chinese restaurants than there used to be, so there’s a good amount of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food, so they’re making a lot out of it.
“Auckland’s Mandarin restaurant is popular, but the Chinese are also showing interest in a new dishDr Mackey, from the School of Business, said the study showed Chinese restaurants could be an opportunity for Auckland to diversify its Chinese culture.”
We want to keep our identity Chinese and New Zealand has a really big Chinese population, and we’re starting to see some really good Chinese restaurants opening up in Auckland,” he said.
The study looked at data from a variety of restaurants in China, including Shanghai, Guangzhou and Beijing.
It also looked at the popularity of the dishes in restaurants in Auckland, including those in Chinatown and in tourist areas such as the CBD.”
The Chinese people are really keen to eat this food and it’s very important to have a good representation of that food in your menu, and Chinese restaurants are an opportunity to show that they are a part of your community,” Professor Tim Mackey told RN Breakfast.”
You have restaurants that are serving authentic Chinese food, you have restaurants where you can actually eat in your home.
“Dr Mackeys work at the University’s Centre for Chinese Culture and Tourism and the School’s Centre on Food and Nutrition.
He said New Zealanders had to work harder than other people in China to make the dish appealing to Chinese.”
I think it’s really important for us to be able to communicate with people, especially in Chinese-speaking countries where we have a large Chinese population,” he told RN.”
If we’re doing a really good job, then people are going to feel comfortable eating it.
