When it comes to breakfast, the difference between North and South is simply too great! Each region has its own different flavors and characteristics. This is a reflection of the vast and profound Chinese cuisine.
For work and life reasons, I traveled through the various provinces of China and was fortunate to be able to taste the food and beauty of each place. In total, there are 14 provinces and municipalities including Shandong, Northeast, Qinghai, Shaanxi, Beijing, Henan, Chongqing, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Hubei, Fujian, Guangdong and Hainan.
Each province has different food habits, and even the various cities within each province are different. Today I'm going to talk briefly about the cities and provinces I've visited and what delicious breakfasts I've eaten. Hurry up and bookmark it, and don't forget to try it if you have the chance to go.
I am from Shandong, Jinan, Qingdao, Weihai and other areas of east-central Shandong breakfast, or more traditional, there are tofu brain, sweet foam, doughnuts, meat biscuits, etc. mainly.
The southwestern part of the country is more distinctive.
①, Linyi's "beef grits", a variety of Chinese herbs boiled with beef bones, beef and wheat kernel. Many people in Linyi get up at 3:00 am to drink grits because they have to rush to drink the "first pot" of grits.
②, Jining's "chicken grits", Jining's grits soup chicken grits mostly. The color is light and the taste is fresh. The tradition of drinking grits in Jining has been passed down for a thousand years and is the favorite breakfast of Jining people.
③, Heze's "Shanxian mutton soup", the only domestic was included in the "Chinese famous menu", known as "China's first soup" Shanxian mutton soup, is the favorite of the people of Shanxian; Cao County in Heze also has a "fish soup", much like Henan spicy soup, topped with fried crispy small fish, taste very good to drink.
Personal preference: The "tofu brain" that I grew up drinking is a favorite, while the Shanxian lamb soup, Linyi's beef and grits, and Cao County's fish soup are also good.
East three provinces I have only been to Dalian, Liaoning, other areas have not been bad comments, but the Northeast has a large number of buddies. From the most northern Heilongjiang Mohe to the south of Dalian, there are many deep friends for many years of old iron.
On the whole, the breakfast in Northeast China is more traditional, similar to the traditional breakfast in Eastern Shandong, which is also soy milk, bean curd brain, doughnut, rice porridge, wontons, cakes and so on.
The breakfast in Dalian is almost no different from Qingdao, just like in Qingdao. Tofu brain is the first choice, it seems that Dalian is more fond of tofu brain than Qingdao, maybe Qingdao has "sweet foam", sweet foam took half of Qingdao's half of the customer base, so there is such a feeling.
Personal preference: I like tofu brains in Dalian, and I can't resist them anyway.
In 2019, I took my family on a self-drive tour of Qinghai, not a full self-drive tour, but a self-drive tour around "Qinghai Lake" with a rental car after arriving in Xining. From Xining, we took a big circle, west to the "Chaqa Salt Lake", north to the "Zhuoer Mountain" in Qilian County, driving a total of more than 1400 kilometers. Ate a lot of Qinghai's special snacks.
Qinghai's "great food" is not mentioned for the time being, but just talk about the breakfast in Qinghai. Qinghai's local breakfast specialties have a very strong northwest flavor. It is heavy on oil and meat. People who generally eat light breakfast may not be used to it, but the "carnivores" definitely have an appetite for it.
Take Xining as an example, the most popular breakfast in Xining is "beef noodles", "beef and sheep soup" and "grasping noodles".
①, "beef noodles", which is often called "beef ramen", is a standard part of Xining people's daily breakfast.
②, "beef and sheep miscellaneous soup", which is the offal of beef and sheep, beef and sheep head meat, etc., repeatedly rinsed with boiling hot soup and finally served in a large bowl, sprinkled with garlic seedlings and ready to eat.
The cooked noodles are heated in hot soup, and different meats such as lamb intestines and lamb head meat can be added according to preference.
Personal preference: haggis soup, beef noodles. Although the beef noodles in Qinghai are not Lanzhou beef noodles, they are really good!
Xi'an is 2019 to go, as the most complete preservation of the ancient capital of the thirteen dynasties, the city of history and culture, must be to take the children to see. It is very important to broaden your child's horizons. When visiting Xi'an, of course, you must taste the food of Xi'an.
In Xi'an in a few days, every day in a different way to eat, including a variety of breakfast. "meatball and spicy soup", "vegetable and meat bun", "tofu brain" and "oil tea sesame".
①, "meatballs and spicy soup" subvert my impression of spicy soup, and drinking Henan spicy soup is completely different, Q pop small meatballs, carrots, celery and other vegetables, poured with red chili oil, very fragrant. If Henan spicy soup is "spicy", Xi'an spicy soup is "spicy", and the ingredients are more abundant.
②, "tofu brain", the marinade is thicker, the ingredients also have mushrooms, chopped fungus, etc., for me who likes tofu brain is able to satisfy my taste buds.
③, "oil tea sesame", this honestly I'm not very interested, but it does have a lot of character, oil tea soaked inside the crispy sesame, the sesame becomes soft and then eat, the fragrance of oil, the fragrance of crushed sesame peanuts, the fragrance of dried fruit is really quite fragrant.
④, "dishes, meat sandwich bun", to Xi'an only know, the original meat sandwich bun is optional, the original meat sandwich bun can not only sandwich meat can also sandwich a variety of dishes. In a word, give Xi'an people a bun, he can give you clip down the world!
Personal preference: meatball and hoisin soup, vegetable and meat sandwich. The a la carte style vegetable meat sandwich is ideal, yum!
Beijing, for work reasons every year to go many times, each time to stay for many days, the longest time to stay for two months, the whole Beijing good food also ate almost. Breakfast in Beijing makes people feel that "Beijing people are very sophisticated". If you want to have a breakfast, you can say one, two, three, four, five, that is, the Beijing people. I like to listen to Beijingers, especially funny.
Beijing's breakfast is still quite fancy, after all, it is the capital city, there are snacks all over the country, let's talk about Beijing's local flavor breakfast: fried liver, bean juice, brisket.
①, "fried liver" is quite unique, fried liver is not "fried", is boiled, "fried" the word how to get unknown. I heard from Beijingers that it is also called "no heart, no lung" because there is no "pig heart" or "pig lung" in it, it is made with pig intestine and pig liver. The soup is thickened with mung bean starch and is very fragrant! It's interesting!
②, "bean juice", how to say it, I think I should listen to others, others have said that things foreigners are certainly not used to drink, local young people in Beijing are not used to drink. I do not listen, the result of a sip and did not drink, there is a sour and rancid taste, really not used to drink, I "defeated"!
③, "marinated boiled" is a good thing, according to my previous appetite in the morning is absolutely not eaten, N years of travel to the south after the intestines were completely opened, the morning to a bowl of marinated boiled eaten after feeling very good. Pork intestine, pork lung and other pork underwater, fried tofu, some have five-flower meat, the soup is very thick, fatty intestine is very tasty, very fragrant.
Personal preference: fried liver, marinated. I think if you don't eat it for breakfast, it's good as a side dish.
Zhengzhou has been there three or four times, twice to stay more than half a month. Henan friends are very warm, in Zhengzhou all day to change the pattern of eating and drinking, every day is drunk, so do not eat much breakfast, more time every morning is used to sleep to wake up. Occasionally will be hard to crawl up to eat some local specialties breakfast.
The most eaten breakfast in Zhengzhou is "Hu Spicy Soup", Hu Spicy Soup in Zhengzhou is full of streets. There are a lot of stores and stalls. Many of them are named after places and people, various old brands and stores. Another is called "bean foam", this bean foam is also one of the traditional breakfast in Henan.
①, "Hu spicy soup", Henan version of Hu spicy soup let me drink out of the taste, the original previously drank in Shandong are not considered Hu spicy soup. This spicy soup in Zhengzhou is a soup base made of large bones, with meat, fungus, cauliflower, vermicelli, gluten and other ingredients. The first sip made me choke, numb and spicy, very unexpected. The soup is very thick, very fragrant, with scallion pancakes to eat very cool, after drinking the stomach are warm, sweating, I call it "sobriety tool".
②, "bean foam", I wonder why it is called bean foam, just because there are more soybeans in it? Similar to Shandong's "sweet foam", are boiled with millet noodles, with peanuts, spinach, vermicelli, bean curd skin.
Personal preference: hoisin soup. It's really good, very warming to the stomach, just a little spicy.
I have been to very many places in Jiangsu, Xuzhou, Lianyungang, Yangzhou, Taizhou, Nanjing, Wuxi and Suzhou. Especially Nanjing, Wuxi, Suzhou, often go and stay for a long time. Jiangsu is a good place, the picturesque scenery of Jiangnan water town, a lot of food, but also the birthplace of the eight major cuisines Su cuisine.
I've been to too many places in Jiangsu to list them all, so I'll mention a few that impressed me the most. Nanjing's "duck blood vermicelli soup", Taizhou Jingjiang's "crab bag", "Su-style noodles". Wuxi's xiaolongbao is also very famous, but too sweet to consume, Wuxi people are also the country's most able to eat sweet.
①. "Duck blood vermicelli soup", a famous food in Nanjing, is very pleasant in the morning with a hot bowl of duck blood vermicelli soup. There are several chain brand stores in Nanjing, but none of them are as good as the one my friend took me to, where locals line up long lines every day. The duck blood, duck intestines and duck liver were very tender and the soup was delicious. In Nanjing, I was addicted to eating this.
②, "Crab Buns", Jingjiang is a very beautiful small town, quiet, peaceful and plain. In fact, there are many places in Jiangsu that have crab buns, and I prefer the ones in Jingjiang. The soup bun is a very big, thin skin, full of soup inside, and the crab yellow inside is fresh and fragrant, which is indeed a rare and delicious treat.
③, "Su-style noodles", I am a great lover of noodles, I have eaten all over the country, although Su-style noodles are not the most famous, but very characteristic. The noodles of Su-style noodles are the same, but the toppings are many, there are dozens of them. There are stewed meat, shredded meat, popped fish, block fish, popped eel, eel paste, shrimp, marinated duck, strong chicken, three fresh, assorted, belly crotch, white soup with hoof noodles, small lamb noodles, phoenix claw noodles and so on.
Personal preference: Nanjing duck blood vermicelli soup, Jingjiang crab buns. Su-style noodles are also good, you can change the pattern to try.
I go to Shanghai every year, and often stay for 2 months at a time. Shanghai, a cosmopolitan city, has a large population with people from all over the country. In Shanghai you can eat a lot of local flavors of specialties and special breakfast. There is a strong Western culture in Shanghai, and there are not many local breakfast dishes in Shanghai.
①. "Wontons", Shanghai wontons are divided into "large wontons" and "small wontons". The small wontons have thin skin and fresh soup, focusing on the taste of the soup; the big wontons are big and full, focusing on the quality of the filling. Shanghai is full of wonton stores, and the famous old wonton stores have queues for breakfast.
②, "fried bun", which is actually a fried bun, and I don't know why they call it a bun. It's just the right amount of frying, with crispy skin, thick soup, fresh meat and delicious, slightly sweet, but still good.
③. "Sticky rice dumplings" are made of steamed glutinous rice, wrapped in doughnuts, with minced squash, meat puffs and meat sauce. The glutinous rice is very sticky and the flavor of the doughnut and meat sauce is very strong.
Personal preference: The wontons are good and more to my liking. There are also many noodle shops in Shanghai, which are similar to Suzhou's Su-style noodles, so I won't list them here.
Wuhan is a place that I used to love and hate at the same time. Love is Wuhan delicious really a lot; hate is the previous Wuhan or "furnace", I have to go every July to stay for a while, I grew up in this "summer mecca" hot enough. Now Wuhan is no longer a furnace, excellent!
Wuhan's breakfast is very unique, I remember the first time I went to Wuhan, I felt really incredible to see people walking and eating noodles, waiting for the bus and eating noodles, and getting into the car and eating noodles. Later learned, "walking" Wuhan people called this way "over the morning". Wuhan's breakfast is rich and characteristic, often eat "hot dry noodles", "bean skin", "beef noodles", "egg wine + noodle nest ".
①, "hot dry noodles", the earliest I was really not used to hot dry noodles, how sesame juice and other seasonings mixed with a bowl of alkaline noodles is so popular? With the in-depth understanding and "taste" of Wuhan, long time not to eat hot dry noodles has begun to miss. In the streets of Wuhan, eating a bowl of hot, fragrant hot noodles instantly felt "very Wuhan"!
②, "bean skin", also one of Wuhan's four famous food, the outer skin is extremely thin but crispy, and the bottom is covered with popping glutinous rice, as well as fresh mushrooms, fresh bamboo shoots, and fresh diced meat. The taste of this is really good, and it is estimated that people in the north and south love it.
③, "beef noodle", Wuhan's beef noodle restaurant is very much, all the streets have, beef noodle and noodle is a major feature. Many doors will be written in front of the word "Hunan". Spicy and delicious beef noodles are my favorite, whether for breakfast or for a late night snack, a bowl is really refreshing!
④, "egg wine + noodle nest", egg wine is actually the "mash" in Sichuan and Chongqing, which is glutinous rice fermented rice wine. Boiling water is used to make the egg mixture, add the wine and sugar, which is the egg wine. The "noodle nest" is fried to be soft around and crispy in the middle, and it is good to eat with egg wine.
Personal preference: hot dry noodles, beef noodles. Especially beef noodles, can't get enough of them!
Very early in Chongqing for a few months, just went to Chongqing when very excited, because finally you can eat authentic Chongqing hot pot! Nothing time to stroll around the Jiefangbei, bubble bars, late night eating hot pot, a very pleasant life.
At first, basically do not eat breakfast, and then because you have to get up early, so also began to discover the Chongqing people's breakfast. Chongqing's breakfast is also very "bashful", there are "oil tea", "Chongqing small noodles", "red oil copy hand", "salted bean curd" and so on. "salted bean flowers" and so on.
①. "Oil tea", which is loved by all Chongqing people, is called oil tea when deep-fried deep-fried noodles are eaten with rice paste. However, my taste is heavy, so I ate less of this because it is not exciting enough for my taste buds.
②, "Chongqing small noodles", this is my favorite, remember that year seems to have no Chongqing small noodles the word, are a variety of spicy noodles, fatty sausage noodles, beef noodles and so on. Eat a bowl of spicy and fresh noodles in the morning, really addictive, so I once forgot I was a Shandong.
③, "red oil copy hand", this is actually wontons, cooked and poured with red oil is ready. The taste of this dish may not be very impressive, but it's different when you pour red oil on it, and the whole spicy and fresh taste comes out.
④, "salty bean curd", Chongqing bean curd is also salty, this meets my appetite, sweet is not like. Unlike Shandong's bean curd brain, bean curd brain is boiled soup poured on the bean flower, is to "drink" mainly. Chongqing salty bean flower is the main "material", red oil, pepper, salt, garlic, sesame oil and so on modulation of the sauce, not so much soup, is eating bean flower.
Personal preference: Chongqing small noodles, salted bean flowers, red oil copy hands. Especially Chongqing small noodles, never get tired of eating.
Zhejiang I have only been to Hangzhou, stay that time also have a fever for several days, no appetite for breakfast. After getting well, looking around to eat a few days of Hangzhou breakfast, also considered to taste the Hangzhou people eat breakfast fee taste.
Hangzhou's diet is relatively light, I know many Hangzhou people onion, ginger, garlic, cilantro are not eaten. I was curious, how do you cook without green onions, ginger and garlic? In fact, most people still eat it, and you can see it in breakfast. Breakfast in Hangzhou, "xiaolongbao", "sliced Sichuan", "fried buns"
①, "Xiaolongbao", the most wanted to say it, how is it different from what I ate in different parts of the country? The small dumplings in Hangzhou are not made of dough, but of dead dough. And surprisingly, there is a soup? Hangzhou's is much better than the kind that are available across the country, but a little on the sweet side.
②, "Piece of Sichuan", is not a bowl of noodles, listen to the name does not sound like a bowl of noodles. Only when you eat it, you find that it is a bowl of noodles with shredded pork and snow cabbage. After the "tongue 2", the price has increased dramatically. Snow cabbage and bamboo shoots are very clear mouth, the freshness of the slices of Sichuan, not the northern "noodles" can "appreciate", the northerners may not think so. I, for one, think it's not bad!
③, "fried bun", this is with green onions, who said Hangzhou people do not eat green onions, this does not also have green onion fried bun? Business is still very hot. Shandong has oven buns, there are pot stickers, and the southern fried buns are close relatives, this eat up completely stress-free, just a little sweet, can not add sugar?
Personal preference: xiaolongbao, sliced Sichuan. I really like Xiao Long Bao, the ones I used to eat are "fake". As a noodle lover, I have no pressure to eat Katsuyachuan.
I have been to two places in Fujian. One is Xiamen, one is Anxi. Xiamen is the place where I stayed for a long time, and Anxi is the place where my friend invited me to go to his hometown in Anxi to experience the life of "Chinese tea country". In general, Fujian's food is very similar to Guangdong, but there are differences.
I actually prefer Min-Cantonese breakfast, peaceful, not cranky, so you eat after a very "soft" feeling. Xiamen breakfast I prefer. In Xiamen for 2 months, Xiamen snacks or ate a lot. Xiamen breakfast: "noodle paste", "Shacha noodles", "duck congee", "flat food".
①, "noodle paste", this is my most favorite breakfast in Xiamen, like to my return to Shandong I will buy "noodle" from the Internet, their own imitation at home to do Xiamen noodle paste. Very fine, very fine noodles, must be broken, thick soup with duck blood, you can add pork intestines, lean meat and other ingredients, really delicious!
②, "Shacha noodles", Fujian's special snack, I do not really like the taste of Shacha sauce, so, Shacha noodles eaten once and never eaten again. But, Shacha noodles is really a very famous snack in Xiamen, most people like it, I am a very small number of people.
③, "duck congee" in Xiamen is quite famous, you can choose what you want to add, duck meat and duck intestines, gizzards, duck liver, duck heart and other "duck goods", with the pre-simmered porridge together, eat really fragrant, material is very full!
④, "flat food" is wontons, which is a representative "crispy wontons" in Shaxian snack. But in Xiamen also did not eat different "crispy wontons", with most areas of the country is similar, I hope to go to Shaxian one day to eat an authentic.
Personal preference: noodle batter and flatbread. Both of these are my favorites and irresistible!
Guangdong I went to places such as Guangzhou, Zhuhai, Foshan and Dongguan. Among them, Zhuhai has stayed for a long time for one year, and Guangzhou has stayed for a long time for 2 months and usually goes there often. Guangdong gives me the impression that really will eat, but also really dare to eat! Old Zhuhai people know Zhuhai when the "game street", everything has .......
Canton morning tea is really sumptuous, but ordinary people do not have the time, nor so much money to enjoy morning tea, once in a while or can be. Most of the time is a simple Canton breakfast, such as: "intestine noodles", "raw rolled congee", "soup noodles", "wonton noodles ".
①, "intestinal noodles", Guangdong breakfast "synonymous", no matter where you go, intestinal noodles will always be the most popular breakfast for locals, is always the NO.1 position. I personally love intestinal noodles, what pork, beef, fat sausage, all of them, just like to eat!
②, "raw rolled porridge", a small casserole, cooked white porridge into it, and then add the ingredients you ordered, such as: skin and egg thin meat porridge, pork liver porridge, chicken porridge, fresh shrimp porridge, fish fillet porridge ...... and so on. There's nothing like a bowl of congee in the morning to warm your stomach. Cantonese congee, I love it!
③, "soup noodles", which is rice noodles such as river noodles, fine noodles, coarse noodles, etc., made with large bone broth in soup rice noodles. Especially the Chaoshan flavor, plus hand-beaten beef balls, fish balls, etc., very fresh and delicious.
④, "wonton noodles", this is indeed a famous Cantonese food, but the attraction to me is really small, or the northern wontons, noodles can attract me some more.
Personal preference: intestine noodles, congee, soup noodles. Sausage noodles are my favorite! Which ancient people invented it? Jung praise!
Hainan to write last! Because I have an unbreakable emotion for Hainan, I have been working and living in Hainan for 6 years, the emotion of these 6 years is deep! Looking back on the 6 years of Haikou days, delicious breakfast vividly. Haikou often eat breakfast: "hug Luo powder", "fried noodles", "Yimian", "Hainan powder".
①, "hold Luo noodles", at first just arrived in Hainan to hold Luo noodles are not used to eating, think is a bowl of a little soup, but not yet the soup powder mixed powder only. With the passage of time, hold Luo noodles addicted to eat, sour bamboo, pickled vegetables, bean sprouts, fried peanuts, scallions and cilantro, and then poured on the hot marinade, the achievement of a bowl of hold Luo noodles, very delicious.
②, "Hainan noodles", strictly speaking Hainan noodles called Haikou noodles, also called "pickled noodles", divided into "wet pickled" and "dry pickled The noodles are technically called Haikou noodles, also called "pickled noodles", divided into "wet" and "dry". The practice is similar to that of hao luo noodles, the rice noodles are finer than hao luo noodles, the biggest highlight is the rich ingredients. There are beef, shredded pork, small pickled vegetables, cooked sesame, garlic paste, peanut rice, chopped green onion, peanut oil, cilantro and so on.
③, "fried noodles", generally refers to fried river noodles. The ingredients of fried river noodles in Haikou are the highlight, lean meat, pork liver, chicken gizzard, preserved sausage, shrimp and green vegetables, etc. The ingredients are very rich. A plate of fried noodles with a small bowl of clear soup will give you a sense of satisfaction after eating.
This is my favorite, and I always buy Hainan's noodles online and make them for my family, it's really delicious. The noodles can be "soup noodles" with lean meat, pork liver, chicken gizzard, shrimp, clams, and vegetables. It can also be "fried noodles", very fine fried noodles with rich ingredients is really delicious!
Personal preference: I love to eat I-myeon, fried noodles, Hainan noodles, and hug-loo noodles. I love "I-myeon" the most!
I have traveled half of my life about these places, today we will talk about breakfast, the main meal and even local specialties for next time, you have the opportunity to go to these places, do not forget to taste these dishes I said, like please collect!
