The city is not very big, but it is very beautiful, in which are many authentic and traditional foods.

Dear all,

The above sentence is what I read from a translation answer, however, I think the sentence should be like one of these:
The city is not very big, but it is very beautiful, in which there are many authentic and traditional foods.
The city is not very big, but it is very beautiful, in which there is many authentic and traditional food.

Could you please let me know which one is the correct sentence? Thank you!

    Neither, I'm afraid. It would probably be simpler if you split it into two.

    The city is not very big, but it is very beautiful. You will find many kinds of authentic and traditional food there.

    You might find posts 4 and 5 from this thread useful: kind of food or kinds of foods??

    Thank you for your reply! How about this one?

    The problem is not with the phrase about "many kinds of food." It's with "in which."

    If you want to try to combine all of these ideas into one sentence, you would have to say:

    The city, in which there are many kinds of authentic and traditional food, is not very big, but it is very beautiful.
