What do you think typical Chinese food is?
In general, (about the vast Chinese culinary
and staples in general, not about items/staples in particular. One other way to ask that would be "what kind of food people eat in China?/can you tell me about what kind of food people eat in China" (and the person would elaborate).
What do you think are Chinese foods? Here we mean, dishes, staples, items.
Are "pastel" and "sushi" Chinese foods?
What do you think are some Chinese typical food? Ou What do you think some chinese food are?
"what do you think are some Chinese typical food?"
not good - to my thinking - when talking about typical food is about culinary, about the main staples
, in general not about specific items. About the day-to-day dietary pattern, sort of.
So, strike out "are" in the first sentence. Plus the word wordeer is mixed up, verb TO BE would come at the end. "“What do you think it´s authentic Chinese food?”
would be best.
"What do you think some Chinese food are?"
Same thing, strike out the "are", if you means specific items, you should ask "what do you think some Chinese foods are" (not food are) but a best option would be "can you think of some Chinese dishes?" or something like that in some cases.
Anyway, the sentence "what do you think some Chinese foods are?" seems grammarly good, could be then elaborated further, and sometimes it could mean "a product coming from China" as inhttp://www.livingtosmile.com/on-the-radar-10-dangerous-foods-from-china/
It was just an example to illustrate. We know from the trade wars of today, so they have millions at stake and the Press/Media sides with its country of origin.
