For a food-centric trip to Beijing, you definitely have to go to the Donghuamen Night Market. There are a bunch of food stands and it's a good place to walk around. Don't forget to try the silkworm cocoons.

If you like duck, pay a visit to Da Dong Roast Duck. The duck is great... but so is everything else. Don't be shy about trying a bunch of things. Nice, shiny coffee-table book menu with pictures makes things easier.

Hi,Amy! Maybe  Beijing is a good place to begin, as the Peking Toast Duck is relly very good here. The most famous maybe the Peking Toast Duck at Qianmen.And recently, I have heard from a friends there is a resturant in a Hutong in Beijing, the Peking Toast Duck here is very delicious and not as expensive as Qianmen. The duck here keep warm all the time, not as other places cool quickly. If you want to get there, I can ask my friend the name and add of this resturant for your reference. 

For  Chengdu, I also have been there before. The are lots of snacks with hot and spicy flavor, which is very amazing! You know, Sichuan Cuisine is very famous in China, even in the world, and chengdu is the capital of Sichuan province. You had to taste the hotpot in Chengdu, if you get there, which is the most famous one. Also other cuisines and snacks such as: Boiled beef, Hot and Sour Tofu Pudding, Chicken Noodle, Kung Pao Chicken, Mapo Tofu... Oh I just wanna back to Chengdu!

i prefer Beijing as a place to begin, because you can try every kind of food in beijing. if u do love spicy food, go south west to Chengdu, where almost everything is covered by red oil. if lightly flavored, go straightly south to Guangzhou, where u can find good sea food and very fresh vegetables. actually, there are so many kinds of delicious food in china. here's a list my favorite cities for food: Beijing, Xi'an, UrumchiChengdu, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Guiyang, Xiamen, Guangzhou, Hong Kong. every one is great!!!!
