    From Cantonese classics to spicy Sechuan: the different types of Chinese cuisine

    China is a massive country and each region has its own specific cuisine, each with their own distinct characteristics and unique flavours. The most popular types of Chinese cuisine that are famous all over the world is Cantonese cuisine – known for its subtle flavours and lightly-cooked dishes, and extremely popular outside China due to the large number of emigrants from the Guangdong area. Sichuan cuisine – famous for its hot, spicy and pungent flavours, Shandong cuisine – developed from the Qi and Lu culture of ancient China and known for its use of expensive ingredients such as shark fin, abalone, sea cucumber, deer meat and white fungus, and Su cuisine – a fusion of Northern and Southern cuisines originating from the Suzhou, Yangzhou and Hangzhou areas of China. Forget a trip to China, you can experience all this and more at the best Chinese restaurants in Glasgow.

    Chinese restaurants in Glasgow: A history of Chinese cuisine in Scotland

    The first ever Chinese restaurant in Glasgow was Wah Yen located on Govan Road which was opened by Jimmy Yih – a Chinese immigrant – in the late 1940s. It didn’t take long for Glasgow to become hooked on chow mein, shredded beef and chicken balls, and the city has been mad about Chinese cuisine ever since. Despite there only being three Chinese families living in Glasgow in the 1950’s, nowadays there is a number of amazing Chinese restaurants in Glasgow, a 12,000-strong Chinese community and the largest Oriental store in the United Kingdom outside of London.
