If  I had to choose between a chinese brand and a different brand I'd go with the different brand. Just my thoughts.....

You're Italian right. You will be disappointed. Also, most of the "olive oil" I have seen made in China is a mix of olive and some other oils. I usually buy olive oil in Macau or Hong Kong where it is possible to get good oil from the countries around the Mediterranean at decent cost. There is lots of importers though. Avoid those that bottle in China, I have seen several Chinese brands that are produced and bottled in Spain, Portugal or Italy.

Buy imported olive oil from an import store. That's where I get my olive oil from and I've never had any quality or taste issues. The one I currently use is extra virgin from Spain. A 500ml bottle cost around 50 RMB.

Always buy imported food (from reliable sources) when you can while in China. You don't even know if what they call olive oil is actually a mix of REAL olive oil with gutter oil. With what they can do with food using cheap chemicals, try to avoid local products as much as you can.

If you go to Carrefour you should be able to find Carapelli oil. If not, at least the spanish Ybarra. If still can't find. seach Taobao!

Never bought chinese olive oil, never will. Not even the one claimed to be made in whaterver Spain, Italy or other countries. It's not the 10 rmb difference in the price that make worth it for sure.

What do you want to use it for? I make salad dressings like Caesar or oil and vinegar, I also put oil and garlic on pasta. Peanut oil is better for frying.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
