How do you say "Chinese food" in Mandarin?

 

My tutor said, "Zhong chan". I was looking it up for the pinyin tones but could not find zhong chan. I know it is general wording, but in English we would say, "let's go get some Chinese food" meaning anything from a Chinese restaurant or if we cook some Chinese dish.

For learning: Chinese (Mandarin)

    中國菜 / 中式菜餚

    中國菜主要有八大菜系,指:川菜、徽菜、浙菜、湘菜、粵菜、蘇菜、閩菜、魯菜。
    同時,也有四大菜系之說,通常指魯菜、川菜、蘇菜和粵菜。
    台菜不在八大系統之列,台菜雖源自中國,由移民帶來台灣,但是與本地的食材、調料結合後,
    產生了特殊的口味,更不用說日本式與西式飲食的大量輸入,對台菜造成的影響。


    中華料理

    日本語詞彙回饋漢語,已廣為接受使用。


    中餐

    有歧義的用詞,一是相對於西餐的說法,二是午餐的同義詞。
