China: How to order traditional food?

No English menu

As in many cities of China English is not a spoken and written language, it is also reflected in the menus of restaurant.Which makes it particularly difficult to order something. On top of that, even with having pictures of the food, I was not always able to say what it is. (In case someone can tell me what is on the right picture, please leave a comment on this page.) 

Food examples

Many restaurants offer an extra room with food examples. There you have the opportunity to look at the food before ordering.

Fresh food

In order to get real fresh food many restaurants give the opportunity to select the food you want to have cooked.
