Peking hosts a magnificent selection of regional Chinese restaurants. This aspect alone makes the trip worthwhile. Food has occupied a central role in Chinese life for thousands of years, as can be gleaned by the role of serving various dishes to the spirits of the deceased. It is said that Chinese food reflects the country's tumultuous history. Nearly everyone coming to China will already have visited a Chinese restaurant in their home country. There is a debate among Chinese epicures about the precise number of regional Chinese cuisines. Of these Shan Dong style dishes, perhaps the most famous is Peking duck. The recommended Shan Dong restaurants, Chinese Muslim restaurants, Fu Jian/Zhe Jiang restaurants, Cantonese restaurants, Si Chuan restaurants, and other regional restaurants are presented.
