In 1907 or 1908, the first recorded Chinese restaurant was opened in London. The rise in the number of Chinese restaurants in the UK only began after the Second World War, and has been attributed to returning service personnel from Hong Kong. The restaurants were operated by Hong Kongers who moved to the UK.

Tea is considered to have been among the first items of Chinese food in the UK in the 17th century. In the 1880’s Chinese groceries appeared sparingly in London and Liverpool. At the same time, Chinese eating-houses seemed mostly patronised by Chinese dockworkers, seamen, and students.

Many Chinese sailors settled around Lime house resulting to the first ever China town in London. But, perhaps, the major introduction of Chinese food to the British public was at the International Health Exhibition that took place in South Kensington, London in 1884.

A significant milestone for Chinese food was the introduction of simple Chinese recipes on a BBC broadcast by Jean Sterling in 1939, and the introduction of ‘Chinese cakes’ baked with potatoes, haricot beans, fat boiled bacon, breadcrumbs, sugar, and herbs to the Britons during World War II.

The 1980’s witnessed a sharp increase in the consumption of Chinese food by Europeans. The most popular dish was the Stir-fry sauces in sachets and Crispy Wontons. Recently, there has been an introduction of a wide variety of Chinese dishes with some combining the traditional Hakka cuisine with western ingredients.  Chinese food is perfect for its methods and style.

With the increasing of demand, it is now more convenient for those Chinese food lovers to seek for a Chinese restaurants all over the UK

Think of wine like you think of food: Everyone has preferences. There are certain ingredients you like and others that you hate, so when you look at a restaurant's menu, your eye wanders toward dishes you enjoy. Wine is the same way.

Choose a wine that you would want to drink by itself, rather than hoping a food match will improve a wine made in a style you don’t like. That way, even if the pairing isn’t perfect, you will still enjoy what you’re drinking; at worst, you might need a sip of water or bite of bread between the dish and the glass. The same holds true for the food: After all, if you detest liver, there is no wine pairing on Earth that will make it work for you.
