Q: Heading to Guangzhou this weekend: What must I eat?

I've been a couple of times, but I think I'm not eating the best stuff when I'm there. I've heard great things about Guangzhou. So anyone in the know in terms of what I should eat?

Do you like to eat Dim Sum? Thats probably the most famous. And depending on where you go. Its super good. More of a breakfast lunch thing than Dinner.

 

I love the food in Guangzhou mainly because its not spicy and its kind of what the chinese food back home is based on.  Your BBQ Pork, and duck with plum sauce, chow mein,  spring rolls. Beef and brocolli. Its everywhere.   If your by yourself and dont know where to go I would suggest  a Hong Kong style snack shop.  Casual  booth style restaurants where you can find everything youve eaten back home pretty much.

 

If your really stuck trying to find, Google a place called " Uncle"  Its a famous franchise of HK restaurants in Guangzhou and other cities.  Your safest bet if your alone.

 

Enjoy!

everything.

according to my students, if it is alive, they will eat it, and this from a student from Guangzhou.

 

Sidebar:

one class included a conversation topic "what would happen if......."

the question was"what would happen if an alien landed?"

a quick student replied "in Guangzhou they would eat it"

it took a while for the laughter to stop.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
