Dining Out In Guilin
famous for its exotic dishes and the sight of
dogs, birds, turtles, snakes and other weird and
wonderful animals in their cages is not unusual
here! Don't be afraid though, if you are not feeling
especially brave, there are plenty of tasty options
for those who prefer their food to be dead before
it arrives at the table!
is also typified by its sweetness and delicate
use of spice and chili. Bamboo leaves stuffed
with sweet rice are a great Guilin snack available
all over the city and also in some of the restaurants.
The city also has some fine upmarket restaurants
where you can sample typical local dishes. The
Guilin Hotel Restaurant has a nice environment
to sample some of this food and the Chicken Balls
with chestnut are especially good here.
If you fancy a break from Chinese
food there are also some fantastic options available
here. The Empire Garden Hotel Restaurant has a
fabulous Japanese and French restaurant where
you can sample good food amidst an elegant environment.
The little town of Yangshuo also has some surprisingly
good western style restaurants where you can sit
back and relax in peaceful and friendly surroundings.
