About Cuisine

True Chinese cuisine, which can be sampled in sophisticated urban restaurants in this country, is diverse and complex; but students of Roadfood know a simple, makeshift cuisine called Chinese-American. It is everywhere in America, but many cities have developed their own style and their own cookery – only dimly related to what Chinese people eat, but very much a part of American vernacular food. St. Louis noodle parlors, with their strange “St. Paul” sandwiches and the old Cantonese restaurants of Butte, Montana, and Ogden, Utah are examples of fascinating – and uniquely American – versions of Chinese food.
