Hello, Random, I’m Jennifer, a native Chinese teacher from Beijing China. Regarding to your question, please see below.
The most famous dishes in China should be “Kung Pao Chicken” and “Sweet and Sour Pork.”
“宫保鸡丁 (gōngbǎo jīdīng) Kung Pao Chicken” is usually perceived as a “川菜 (chuāncài) Sichuan dish,” and you can order this dish in almost every Sichuan restaurant. However, “宫保鸡丁 (gōngbǎo jīdīng) Kung Pao Chicken” originally was a “黔菜 (qiáncài) Guizhou dish,” and there is an interesting story behind this.

“糖醋里脊 (táng cù lǐjǐ) Sweet and Sour Pork” is a popular Chinese dish in western countries. It belongs to Zhejiang cuisine which is one of the main eight cuisines in China. An old saying describes Zhejiang province as: “上有天堂, 下有苏杭 (Shàng yǒu tiāntáng, xià yǒu sūháng) Just as there is a paradise in heaven, there are Suzhou and Hangzhou on earth (Note: Hangzhou is the capital of Zhejiang province),” so Zhejiang cuisine also enjoys a great popularity. After eating “糖醋里脊 (táng cù lǐjǐ) Sweet and Sour Pork,” people will be impressed by its features-bright red color, sweet and sour flavor, and being crispy outside and tender inside. These are also the characteristics of Zhejiang cuisine.
