My Impression of Chinese Food

A century egg
Two weeks ago, I went to a Chinese restaurant with my friends. At that time I ate a "pidan" (Century egg) for the first time. This food is a dish using a duck's egg. It looks black and it doesn't look like an egg, so it seemed not to be delicious.
But I challenged it, and its taste was that of an egg and had a peculiar flavor. I thought that the food was very mysterious.
Many aspects of Japan's culture comes from China; for example, Kanji (Chinese characters), religion, etc. I think that Japan and China look a lot like each other. However, I think that each culture's food is unique.
