Leading readers through the byways of culinary China, the more than 3,000 translations of menu items in this guide will unlock dozens of unfamiliar and tempting local dishes for travelers. The translations are categorized and alphabetized in two ways—first, into category and subgroup using English names, then second, into groups using Chinese names in a way that makes sense to Chinese natives who can assist travelers. Also included are common restaurant phrases, lists of truly unique Chinese foods, explanations of obscure cross-culture food items, and a guide to pronouncing Chinese phrases like a native.

Dr. Alan Hoenig is a professor of mathematics at the John Jay College of the City University of New York. He is the author of Chinese Characters: Learn & Remember 2,178 Characters and Their Meanings. He lives in New York City.
