China is very famous for its food in the world. There are many kinds of food in China. They're Cantonese food, Sichuan food, Shanghai food, Hunan food and so on. Generally speaking, Cantonese food is a bit light, Sichuan food is very hot, Shanghai food is rather oily, and Hunan dishes are very spicy, having a strong and hot taste. Mapo Bean curd, steamed fish sweet and sour pork ribs, spring roll and many Chinese dishes are very delicious. In the north of China, people eat a lot of noodles and dumplings. In the south of China, people eat a lot of rice and seafood. Chinese food is good in color, flavor and taste. So I like it very much.
The university dining hall is changing its food service to include more healthy food with lower calories. What do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of this change?
The advantage of such plan would be obvious. Lower calorie foods like fruits, yogurt and salad are healthier than many of the hot items most schools offer now. Health conscious students should welcome this change. Cutting back junk foods like pizza and fries should be done ages ago. Of course, there are certain disadvantages to this plan. Healthy food don’t always taste good if you know what I mean. They are bland, boring flavorless. There’s nothing better than biting into a juicy burger when we are hungry. They are great for a quick fix when we need the energy.
Do you often eat food from other countries or cultures?
Yes ! I often eat Vietnamese or Thai Food. I’m pretty adventurous (大胆尝试) and I love trying new things. Last week I had Mexican food for the first time. I ordered a veggie burrito. It was spicy (辛辣的), but delicious!
Secondly，thanks to globalisation, I thinks most people like to have a taste of different types of cuisine(菜肴), in a cosmopolitan city like Shanghai, people commonly have Italian food and American food and I enjoy sampling(品尝) food from different countries. So that, I can keep my friends and colleagues posted(更新信息) and they will share their favourite restaurants in return(作为报答).
