Guilin rice noodle is a traditional snack of the Han nationality (China's main nationality) with long history. Due to its unique flavor, it is very popular among locals as well as people who come to visit Guilin. Nowadays because of installing machines to replace manual labor, rice noodle can be produced in great amount every early morning, so it becomes cheap and serves as breakfast for most Guilin people in the morning.
A famous street not more than 100 meters long but with over 200 cookshops and stalls, Zhongshan Road of Nanning is a genuine food paradise where you can find almost all China flavors that you may expected, from local snacksto famous dishes nationwide.
In the capital of China one can find Turkey Kebap, Spanish Paella or French Foie Gras with original taste and flavor. People in New York are able to buy Rouga Mo at streets of Manhattan, and in Melbourne can have a try of Peking Roast Duck. The travel of human and foods bring those delicacies of each country even more famous. However, less popular foods unavoidably exist. Some of them hidden in China’s rivers, deserts, mountains or other places are also delicious, that’s the realm of secrets we are looking for.
Home may be the warm harbor for every one, no matter how far one can reach it is always the starting point and destination in one’s life. People living in the same house make a fire and cook—they are bound together by love and foods. Simple pots and pans reflect the Chinese lifestyles, whilst daily domestics are just as different tastes of lives. As teaching mother tongues, older generations embed tastes in younger ones’ memories, and these familiar tastes always remind them the directions of homes.
Now, type the keyboard in a sunny morning and write something about the 2014 Spring Festival (Chinese New Year), I really couldn't conceal my excitement at the moment – the time for family reunion and whole country’s celebration is coming! It needs time to introduce every aspect of this extremely important festival in China, thus here I just focus on some foods Chinese people usually enjoy during the pleasant dates.
Nowadays, as people’s living standard rising considerably, they do not favor the traditional greasy food but the bland diet. It is truly much healthier than old habit and healthy diet and weight reduction are gradually changing modern people’s life.
Beyond the green mountains and clear waters, Guilin is all about food. I'v been living in Guilin since my birth and the more I'm here, the more I fall in love with Guilin. Growing up in this small but lively city, I was used to being surrounded by rich and spicy flavors and fed with a constant stream of Guilin Noodles, rice, and Li River fishes. Although Guilin Rice Noodles has been widely spread to everywhere of the country, only in Guilin that you can get the absolute taste.
