Suzhou cuisine

Postby skinnykiwi1 » Sat Oct 18, 2008 1:27 am

Living with my parants for more than 20 years ourside China, I am wondering if somebody can tell me the real differences among cuisines popular in the Eastern China. Local people tell me that Suzhou's foods differ in style with foods from Shanghai, Hangzhou and Huaiyang, but for me their tastes and styles are the same! Any comments are much appreciated! :D :)

Among these cuisines there are only minor differences. If you are not locals it is hard to distinguish them. Compared with Sichuan cuisine these popular delicacies are rare with hot peppers or chilli but use more sea foods, favor ingredient's original flavors, sweet, sometimes salty.

the problems are how you make your orders while reading the menu in restaurant. there are some really populare dishes for the cuisine but you need to taste first to find out.

Dishes or cuisines popular in Suzhou and nearby cities in China's eastern provinces including Shanghai are all similar in tastes. The major differences between those cuisines and other foods such Sichuan/Guangdong are that they use less spices and not hot at all.

Changzhou' principal food should be similar with Huaiyang cruisine, the main style for the region.
