What is the food aroma coming from Chinese restaurants?

Question by Autumn: What is the food aroma coming from Chinese restaurants?
There is a Chinese restaurant near my house. At times there is a pleasant food aroma coming from the building. It always makes me want to go and eat there.
But I only eat veg, fruit and non-grains.
So my question is, what is it that I’m specifically smelling from the restaurant that smells good?
Is it the fried foods? Is it the pork/chicken?
oils?

  1. It comes from spices n condiments. in chinese food there is use of lots of Garlic,Ginger,Soya,Corn flouretc

  2. Chinese restaurants use very high temperature too cook their food very fast. The smell is a combination of oil, chicken stock, soy souce and perhaps black bean sauce.

  3. It’s the sauces. Usually including soy, but they add a lot of MSG too usually. You can do stir fry at home which tastes just as good. Thai sauces are tastier and use fish sauce (one part), oyster sauce (one part) and thin soy sauce (two parts) which is quite different to soy sauce. The other cooking secret is adding a little sugar before the sauces. The best part is you only need a smidgen of these sauces to make a world of difference to a meal, after all you shouldn’t have too much of them. Most Chinese restaurants will serve you up whatever you wish to order, e.g. steamed vegetables with no sauce. Chinese restaurants do have an excellent dish which is just leafy greens, usually with a strong thin soy sauce.
