Tim Johnson dished out an interesting statistic of Beijing’s preparation for English speaking Olympics visitors:
The city government has standardized the English names of the 2,425 most commonly eaten dishes.
Wow, do tell! What are those 2425 “most commonly eaten dishes”. I don’t think I have ever consumed more than 3 digits of Chinese food varieties yet.
By the way, I am very grateful to be one of the gifted that appreciate good food of any kind around the global (e.g. cheese, steak, sashimi, whatever). The fact that my wife enjoys such things similarly really helps. 🙂
