Chinese Translation?

Picture of

What, if anything, do these Chinese characters mean? 
I've intentionally hidden the context - I'll tell you later if the translation doesn't make it clear. 
I've tried Google images for the individual characters but just get Chinese pages containing them and no translation.

It means 'good food from the east'. 东Dong (east) 方fang (place) 美mei(beautiful/goof) 食shi(food).

Don't know why the chinese characters aren't showing up. Let me try again. 东方美食。Since it's written in chinese, it would refer to chinese food.

Many thanks - That makes perfect sense considering where I saw the phrase. (I thought it would be something like that, but you never know . . . #;¬)
