Discover the food culture in Hangzhou – Gastronomical delight

Regarded as one of the famous cuisines in China currently, Hangzhou cuisine has managed to make itself prominent even in the neighbouring Shanghai. Throughout China there are many of these restaurants that have shot up and the cuisine itself has been elevated and offered a superior status.

 

For the food lovers who want to experience this wide spread cuisine, look no further than a visit to the city itself. There are wide spread accommodation options available here and Hangzhou Serviced Apartments have been a top choice among most visitors. One of the highly recommended options when it comes to these types of apartments has been Citadines Intime City Hangzhou. Located in Western Hangzhou’s heart the property has been a popular option due to its comfort and security.

 

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 “.
