If you're coming to Va Beach, you're going to find friendly locals, warm weather and super sandy beaches. When your stomach starts growling and you're in the mood for Asian cuisine, look no further then our best Chinese restaurants. Chinese food is usually grouped into eight main categories: Anhui, Cantonese, Fujian, Hunan, Jiangsu, Shandong, Sichuan, and Zhejiang. Most authentic dishes are comprised of a combination of rice, noodles, soybeans, wheat, vegetables, herbs, and seasonings – while traditionally limiting meat. My personal favorites are Cantonese and Hunan.
