"It's not only my favorite food, but also popular with/among locals and tourists." "It's not only my favorite food, but also popular with/among locals and tourists." Between "with" and "among", which preposition is better in this sentence? Or are they both fine here? And if this sentence sounds odd to you, please correct it for me. Thank you!

Hi, 秉奇. I think it's better to use an inverted word order in your sentence, starting with: Not only is it my favorite food, but it is also popular with tourists. Speaking about whether it should be "with" or "among", I'd prefer "with", but "among" would be also grammatically correct.

I think they are both fine. "With" is probably more common. "Among" sounds more formal, like something you'd read in an article.
