Jiang Nan, or Southern Yangtze, not only has beautiful scenery but also rich in natural resources. It has been known as the “land of fish and rice" and “land of plenty” since ancient times. This time to visit Jiangnan indeed impressed me a lot, especially the delicious cuisine.
Rich Southern Yangtze people devote particular care to eat and drink, and enjoy a high reputation both at home and abroad for a long time. The famous Southern Yangtze dishes: Sweet and Sour Mandarin Fish, hairy crab, salted duck, JiaoHua chicken and Dongpo's pork, etc.
Let me introduce some of my favorite as following:
Nanjing cuisine - Stinky tofu
Hangzhou cuisine - Dongpo's pork
Suzhou cuisine - Yangcheng Lake hairy crab
