Eight Bowls of Bai Ethnic Group
The eight bowls of dishes reflect the traditional culinary culture of the Bai ethnic group in a concentrated way. At the traditional Bai banquet, eight people sit around a square table made of marble stone with carved patterns, and eight big bowls of dishes are served, hence the name “Eight big Bowls.” The eight bowls of dishes include both meat and vegetables, fat but not greasy, light but nutritious. Some dishes are steamed and the others are boiled, with bright and varied colors. All the eight dishes show the typical features of the Bai Cuisine with sour and spicy taste.
