This is what we think of here in China when we hear 新奥尔良 Xīn Àoěrliáng (New Orleans):

Chinese-style New Orleans chicken.

Funny, it would never occur to me to associate New Orleans with chicken of all things. There must be so many other things I'd be much more likely to associate it with than that.

If I had to associate New Orleans with one food, it would probably be catfish or a shrimp po'boy, not goddamn chicken. (Or beignets, but I don't like sweets.)

I'd like to visit Greenland, especially Ilulissat and it's great glacier. I'd like to go also to the northern part of Canada: Baffin Island, Labrador, and other isles in the north west of the country.

Yeah, I think of crayfish for instance.
But the reason the New Orleans roast chicken got so popular in China is probably KFC.

No, I meant that the KFC in China, besides fried chicken, also makes "New Orleans roast chicken", like this burger:

Or these chicken wings:

And then the Chinese also made whole roast chickens marinated that way.

I would love to visit New Zealand. The first reason is that Ladyhawke the singer, whom I adore is from there, and the second reason is that they have very beautiful places.
