Chinese cuisine is one of the most popular cuisines in the world, but how well do you know about it? Read on as the best Chinese restaurant in Zetland tells you more about the types of courses in Chinese cuisine.

There are five main types of courses in the Chinese cuisine and they are cold dishes, hot dishes, soups and congees, staple food and snacks.

Cold dishes, typically the first course of a traditional Chinese banquet, are dishes that will increase people’s appetite. Common ingredients used to stimulate appetite are soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, salt, sugar and chilli powder.

Hot dishes are main dishes that people have with staple food, like rice and noodles.

Soups and congees in the Chinese cuisine aren’t as heavy as compared to the Western cuisine. The Chinese uses corn starch to thicken soups instead of using milk or cream, however, light soups are more preferably as people believe that soups are great for health. Congees are easy to digest, making it one of the top breakfast choices, and also food to have when one is ill.
