From Lo Mein to Bok Choy:
Some of the Best Chinese Food in Woodland Hills
Chinese food, whether in takeout guise or eat-in tradition, is one of the most popular forms of cuisine in the United States and in many other places around the world. The cooking style includes forms birthed from the disparate areas of China, as well as from populations Chinese in origin that live in different countries. Chinese cuisine’s history dates back thousands of years, evolving as it went along from period to period and in each region based on local preferences, imperial fashions and climate. Over time, ingredients and techniques from other cultural foods were synergized with Chinese cuisine because of trade with nearby regions (in modern times) and imperial expansion.
