China Food
I’m traveling to Guilin next week. I know Guilin has beautiful landscapes, the Li River, Elephant Trunk Hill, Yangshuo, Longji Rice Terraces, Butterfly Spring and so on. But, I was wondering if there is delicious local food that we tourists should not miss. If there are, what are there names? And where should I go to find them? Do you know some famous restaurants in Guilin that provides authentic local food? Any information is highly appreciated. Thank you.

Re RE:Andrew : When I traveled to Guilin last year, our travel guide introduced us some great local Guilin food. Yes, there are quite delicious and tasty.
I still remembered the delicious Guilin rice noodles. This is very famous in China and the guide said you can eat in many other places in China, but those of Guilin should have the most authentic taste.
Besides the Guilin rice noodles, there are other dishes that you should not miss out. The nun noodles, chestnut glutinous rice dumplings, stewed duck with gingko, lotus-leaf duck, and stewed duck with ginger.
There are also some Guilin dishes that use food materials from the Li River, like the Stuffed Li River Snails and Steamed Li River Fish.
The above mentioned are dishes I tried when I was in Guilin. Hope your trip be as wonderful as mine.
