China City: A Culinary Experience
China City, a restaurant that I visited in Ohio will be the subject of this essay. China City is an American Chinese cuisine, that caters to the more delicate palates of American customers and yet attempts to retain some of its native origins.
Some of the first things that one would expect as a student when entering a Chinese restaurant will be the pungent smell of spices, of crisply fried vegetables and many more conflicting smells of sauces.

The flower vases were distinctly placed so as to add
the effect to the existing plants. Note, these were not flowering plants, but the way the flower vases were placed around the reception area in the backdrop of the bright red background with the plants made it appear as if they had indeed blossomed on the plants. The overall effect was mesmerizing. Added to this was slow music, oriental and the words in Chinese although lost upon us was quite soft and added a level of sensuousness to the place.
