(Business Insider) With 1.3 billion people and 56 ethnic groups, China has one of the most complex and diverse cuisines in the world.|
Dozens of different regional cuisines are drastically different from one another with different flavor profiles, ingredients, and cooking methods.

I flew into Hong Kong in southeastern China. Hong Kong is known for having a robust street food scene. I started with a beef skewer cooked in chili-garlic sauce. The vendor also sold more adventurous skewers like squid and pork intestines, but I was just getting warmed up.
