There's an awesome short story by Ken Liu (wonderful Chinese-American author, you might know him for having translated The Three Body Problem) which is about the introduction of Chinese food to America during the gold rush. It's called "All The Flavors", a story from his anthology "The Paper Menagerie".

The whole anthology is excellent, but All The Flavors is one of my favorite stories in it.

In a similar vein the documentary In Search of General Tso explores the history of Chinese immigration patterns to America.

That was such a fun and insightful documentary. It gave me a deep appreciation for the immigrant experience.
