I once wrote an article or Tourism Montreal about the different kinds of Chinese cuisines available in Montreal. FYI, there are eight regional cuisines in China: Lu (Shandong), Chuan (Szechuan), Hui (Anhui), Yue (Guangdong), Min (Fujian), Xiang (Hunan), Su (Jiangsu), and Zhe (Zhejiang). There are similarities among these different cooking styles, but they are all unique. What differentiates them from each other are the regional ingredients, geography, climate and history. Don’t forget, China is huge. We’re lucky to have so many Chinese restaurants in Montreal that represent many of these cooking styles. Beijing, Kam Fung for Cantonese, Gia Ba and Hong Mere for Szechuan, Nouilles Lan Zhou and Delice Oriental for Jiangsu – to name a few. I recently found a restaurant that serves a dish that’s not often found anywhere. Sorry, I take that back, not found anywhere at all. Period. I checked out Chez Yanna for their Toisanese duck.
