because the mild taste of Chinese food arises from the natural flavors of the ingredients that are added.
อาหารจีนจึงมีรสจืด ไม่ใช้เครื่องปรุงที่มีกลิ่นแรงและไม่มีรสจัดจนข่มรสธรรมชาติของวัสดุ

The essence of the delicious flavors lies in many kinds of natural flavors of the various ingredients which are used in preparing (Chinese) food.
คนจีนกินข้าวด้วยการกินกับเปล่า ก่อน เพื่อรู้รสของกับอย่างเต็มที่
khohnM jeenM ginM khaaoF duayF gaanM ginM gapL bplaaoL bplaaoL gaawnL pheuuaF ruuH rohtH khaawngR gapL yaangL dtemM theeF
Chinese people consume their meals by first eating their prepared dishes without rice in order to get the full taste of the dish.
laaeoH jeungM phuyH khaaoF dtaamM pheuuaF laangH rohtH khaawngR gapL theeF ginM khaoF bpaiM siiaR
They then push rice into their mouths in order to cleanse their palates from the food that they just ate.
สำหรับคีบกับอีกอย่างหนึ่งเข้าปากกินเปล่า เพื่อเสพรสใหม่
samR rapL kheepF gapL eekL yaangL neungL khaoF bpaakL ginM bplaaoL bplaaoL pheuuaF saehpL rohtH maiL
(They do this) in order to savor yet another dish of food by itself to enjoy yet another new taste.
แล้วก็พุ้ยข้าวไปล้างรสนั้นตามไปเรื่อย ๆ จนกว่าจะอิ่ม
laaeoH gaawF phuyH khaaoF bpaiM laangH rohtH nanH dtaamM bpaiM reuuayF reuuayF johnM gwaaL jaL imL
Next, they again shovel in rice to again cleanse their palates, continuing until they are sated.
