The 8 Cantonese Restaurants That Make Her Want to Move to Canada

If you had the dim sum in Richmond, you’d understand.

I became obsessed with Cantonese food not in Hong Kong, nor the sprawling suburbs of Los Angeles—two places filled with generations of immigrants from Guangdong (formerly known as Canton). No, I fell in love with the region’s intensely savory and satisfying cuisine in Richmond, an island city that’s part of Greater Vancouver in British Columbia.

“I Was Hoping for Sushi. I Love Chinese Food” – Canadian PM Trudeau Comments Spark Debate in China

Justin Trudeau’s dreams of sushi spark debate on the Chinese internet over whether sushi really is Japanese or Chinese in origin

There are few things more quintessentially Japanese than sushi. Unless you’re in a certain section of the Chinese internet of course. And for that, we have Justin Trudeau partly to blame.

Appearing at the 2019 Press Gallery Dinner (the Canadian equivalent of the White House Correspondents Dinner) this weekend, the Canadian Prime Minister joked, “I was hoping for sushi. I love Chinese food”, in reference to his gaffes last week when he twice referred to Japan as China in front of Shinzo Abe.

It was a faintly humorous attempt at self-deprecation typical of the dinner. But that didn’t stop some in China from taking it far too seriously.

How bamboo-eating pandas trick their bodies into thinking they are carnivores

Although pandas survive on bamboo, their protein-rich diets have more in common with carnivores than herbivores.
