Chinese food is nothing new to Indians. You will rarely find someone in India saying, ‘I don’t like chinese’. It was the over a century ago when a small Chinese community living in Kolkata introduced Chinese cuisine to India (according to wikipedia). And today, we find Chinese food in almost every part of India. Not only in restaurants, but also at homes.

I love Chinese food! From the basic Hakka Noodles to Manchow Soup to Chicken Manchurian, I love everything. And my love for Chinese food is not restricted to eating, I even like to cook that at home. No matter how good cook we are, we can’t make the restaurant-like Chinese in our kitchen. The main reason behind this is that the restaurants people cook Chinese food at a very high flame, in their large Iron wok. And such cooking is not possible on our mini gas stoves. This is why we need to reach a Chinese restaurant every time we crave for Chinese Food.
Getting tasty Chinese food is no big deal if you live in Mumbai. You will find at least one Chinese food stall or restaurant in every area in Mumbai.
