What Are Some Descriptions of Common Dishes on Chinese Restaurant Menus?

Wonton soup is a flavorful broth made with traditional Chinese wontons. Thin wonton wrappers are filled with minced pork, rolled into shape and boiled before joining vegetables, green onions and sometimes noodles in a hot soup that typically is served before dinner. Sweet-and-sour pork is often recognized by its reddish-orange color. Bite-size pieces of marinated pork are battered, deep-fried and then served over rice with a tangy sauce made of brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar and soy sauce.
