This is a list of notable Chinese soups. Chinese cuisine includes styles originating from the diverse regions of China, as well as from Chinese people in other parts of the world. Many Chinese soups are noodle-based. By 2000 BCE, wheat had arrived in China from western Asia. These grains were typically served as warm noodle soups instead of baked into bread as in Europe. Chinese noodles are used in the preparation of some Chinese soups.
