According to a Chinese friend, Chinese cuisine is divided into 16 different major cuisines.

Cantonese cuisine
Shanghainese cuisine
Fujianese cuisine
Shandongnesecuisine
Sichuanese (Szechuanese) cuisine
Anhuinese cuisine
Zhejiangnese cuisine
Beijingnese cuisine
Yunnannese cuisine
Hunnanese cuisine
Tianjinese cuisine
Hubeinese cuisine
Huaiyangnese cuisine
Heilongjiangnese cuisine
Shaanxinese cuisine
Hangzhounese cuisine

And these don't even include American Chinese food and Taiwanese food. I'd like to know more about the difference of these 16 regional cuisines and where in New York City can you get them.

I know we can get pretty authentic Cantonese, Shanghainese, Foochownese (which is only a part of Fujian), and Sichuanese here in New York.

Please share your knowledge, suggestions, and opinions.
