CNN recently selected 14 typical Chinese dishes that "are almost guaranteed to wake the homesick bug in most Chinese living or traveling abroad."

From Spicy crayfish to Yan Du Xian Soup, from Guilin rice noodles to Stinky tofu, "while ingredients are easy to transport, feelings of home aren't, nor are certain specialties that only taste their best in the place they were born," CNN said.

Here are the dishes.
