The discrimination that the Chinese immigrants faced had a direct effect on their culture of food.
According to researcher Catherine Stull, like the Chinese immigrants themselves, their food, too,
was seen as strange and different, which affected how Chinese immigrants presented their foods
to non-Chinese. As restaurant owners and operators, the Chinese immigrants had to appeal to their non-Chinese clientele in order to survive, and they altered their food for it to be accepted.
