Xinghua smoked goose is the most distinctive dish in Xinghua. Smoked meat, oily and fragrant, with good color and taste, clean and refreshing, crisp and fragrant, with a distinctive flavor. always thought that only Zhejiang North loves to eat badly drunk aquatic products. I didn't expect it to be very common in Xinghua drunken shrimp. The drunken shrimp here is more popular than Ningbo. The use of vinegar is higher and the taste is more layered. With sorghum, a touch of mellow aroma. When cooling outside, come to a hot fish hot pot, warm and warm. Braised squid head is the signature dish in the store. Although the practice and materials are very simple, the rich aroma comes from the nose, so that you can't eat your mouth yet. Jiangsu people also love soup, Laoya Tang is one of them, and it is also a very popular home cooking. The old duck soup that Xinghua had was golden in color and fragrant, but it was light and delicious but not greasy. I couldn't help but add a small bowl. Tangzhou Yangzhou area of the lion head is mainly stewed, Xinghua eats braised, and the white boiled egg inside has been soaked in the soup. The braised lion's head is more ready to eat than the stewed stew. Xinghua water network is densely covered, the most common on the table is river fresh and lake fresh. The boiled snails, very simple, retain the original flavor, with a little soy sauce, have a taste. I didn't expect to eat salt and pepper prawns in Xinghua. Although it is not as big as the ones eaten by the sea, the practice and taste are the same as those eaten by the sea.
