The Hangzhou cuisine is widely known for its close association with its culture as well as for its natural flavours, light palatable taste and beautiful presentation. Most of the Hangzhou cuisine often include Beggar’s chicken which is an entire chicken roasted in a ball of mud , Wet lake sweet and sour fish, that is vinegar coated fish from the lake and braised pork & stewed shelled shrimp cooked in Longjing tea.


One of the famous dishes of Hangzhou is Dongpo pork. The dish originated as a mistaken experiment by an official belonging to the Song Dynasty where the meat was cooked along with wine and the taste was excellent so the people decided to dedicate the dish to the official’s name.


The West Lake Fish in Vinegar Gravy is yet again another famous dish of Hangzhou. One of the other delicacies in this part of the country is the Beggar’s chicken. However the irony is that in Bejing the chicken is called “Rich and Noble chicken “.
