At noon, we dine at the Shanju Hotel in Zisha Hotel to taste the authentic Yibang Cuisine. Yibang cuisine is a brand new cuisine. It is based on Huaiyang cuisine and is based on local food. It has innovated local dishes such as Yunhu fish head tofu, Umi rice, Yangshuo tea banquet and Yanlai glutinous rice. Tin sweet, food is not Anhui rich, and there is no light of Zhejiang cuisine, "primary color, raw juice, original flavor" is their biggest bright spot.

It can be seen from the table to the cold dish, the exquisiteness of Yibang cuisine. Yixing is adjacent to Taihu Lake in the east, hilly mountainous area in the south, Taihu Plain in the north,

In addition, Yixing is the capital of ceramics, and all kinds of ceramic tableware produced locally have become an important part of the restaurant culture. These exquisite small porcelains in the middle of the round table are each a piece of art.

Personally think that the taste of Yibang cuisine is very consistent with people from different regions. It is sweet, spicy, fresh, not too strong, and not too light, and should be accepted by most people.


In addition, the local format dessert is also widely acclaimed, crispy and fragrant, delicious to stop.
