A culinary trend is becoming popular in China, where more Chinese people are enjoying Western-style dishes, known as “white people meals.” This trend reflects the changing tastes and influences in China’s food scene.

There are several reasons contributing to this trend, including globalization and increased exposure to Western culture. Chinese consumers are curious about exploring different cuisines and trying new flavors. Western dishes like hamburgers, sandwiches, pasta, and pizza can now be found in many Chinese cities, catering to the growing demand for these “white people meals.” Specialized restaurants and cafes offering Western cuisine have also gained popularity among Chinese customers and expatriates. Some Chinese consumers see these “white people meals” as a symbol of modernity and sophistication, representing a departure from traditional Chinese cuisine. However, the trend has sparked discussions about cultural appropriation and the preservation of culinary traditions. Critics worry that it may dilute Chinese culinary heritage and traditional flavors. The emergence of the “white people meals” trend showcases China’s vibrant food culture. It demonstrates Chinese consumers’ openness to diverse culinary influences from around the world and their willingness to try new foods.
